Don’t Have Sex With Men Who Are Meat-Eaters, PETA Appeals To Women; Know Why?

New Delhi: Global animal rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has called out to women asking them not to have sex with men who are meat eaters. This, it feels, will help in tackling climate change.

In a blog post on September 22, PETA wrote, “We all know them—the suburban men with beer bottles in hand, brandishing tongs while cooking sausages on their expensive gas grills. These barbecue masters believe that they can prove their masculinity to themselves and their fellow humans through their consumption of meat, not only hurting animals but also harming the planet.”

PEAT cited a study published in the journal PLOS ONE to claim that men contribute significantly more to the “climate catastrophe” than women. Meat-eating men contribute 41 per cent more towards greenhouse gases, PETA claimed.

“That’s why Peta’s proposing a strike on sex with meat-eating men to persuade them to go vegan,” it said.

The Internet has not taken kindly to the appeal.

“PETA what is wrong with you guys,” a social media user said.

“PETA has asked WOMEN to stop having SEX with MEAT eating MEN. Calling for a sex strike, PETA wrote, “Men need to take accountability for their actions. PETA’s proposing a strike on sex with meat-eating men to persuade them to go vegan.” But what about the MEAT-EATING WOMEN,” another user on Twitter said.

In a video, Dr Carys Bennett, representing PETA, stated that differences between men and women were observed in their diet. More meat intake in men meant that they had a bigger carbon imprint than women. Speaking about PETA’s sex ban campaign, Bennett said it was a “tongue in cheek” idea.
