Does Eating Meat Make YOU Manly?

Be a Virile Vegan!

Does eating the actin and myosin protein filaments which comprise muscle make men more manly?

Said another way-Does eating meat make your more of a man?

I have been a vegan for about 15 years and I can't tell you how many times I have heard the argument that you can't be a "real man" unless you eat meat. Somehow, consuming flesh increases ones masculinity. Tough guys are "meat and potatoes" men. They eat steak and barbecue things.

Since the mythology of manhood includes the consumption of cooked critters many men are reluctant to forego feasting on flesh in favor of a vegan diet.

After all, giving up meat will make you less of a man.

But what makes a man, a man?

Testosterone.A Prostate GlandA Penis. (But not just a penis, the ability to get an erection.)


Testosterone is a steroid hormone and it:

  • Is important for normal skeletal development
  • Regulates libido-your sex drive
  • Influences muscle mass
  • Is required for normal sperm development

If meat makes you manly why do vegans have more testosterone?

That's right, virile vegans!

Meat munching males have 13 percent less testosterone than vegans. (Allen NE. Hormones and diet: low insulin-like growth factor-I but normal bioavailable androgens in vegan men. Br J Cancer. 2000 Jul;83(1):95-7.)

This is because meat eaters constantly expose themselves to female hormones in the meat and milk they eat. By forgoing flesh you can be a virile vegan.

The Prostate Gland:

The function of the prostate is to store and secrete an alkaline, milky white fluid that makes up 25-30% of ejaculate volume. The prostatic fluid gives sperm better motility, longer survival and protects the genetic material (DNA) in the sperm.

Men who live in the United States have the highest rates of prostate cancer, while men who live in South America, Central America, Africa, and Asia all have much lower rates prostate cancer.

What accounts for the difference? Diet of course. The most common dietary culprit implicated in raising prostate cancer risk is a high fat diet, particularly a diet high in saturated animal fats.

Cut out the animal fat and be a virile vegan!

The Penis:

The fully erect penis is the ultimate symbol of masculinity.

Erection is achieved when the penis becomes engorged with blood.

According to the National Institutes of Health in 2002, an estimated 15 million to 30 million men in the United States experience chronic erectile dysfunction. They can't get it up. They have been emasculated.

In the majority of these cases impotence is caused by narrowing of the blood vessels in the penis. When the arteries and veins to the penis clog up, you can't get it up. Blood vessels clog up from all the saturated fat and cholesterol in cooked carcasses you consume. This narrowing of blood vessels is called cardiovascular disease. If you can't get it up you are a prime candidate for a deadly heart attack.

If the measure of a man is his enormous erection, meat eaters are miniscule.

Vegans rarely, if ever, develop cardiovascular disease. Vegans rarely, if ever become impotent. Virile Vegans!

A Question For You

Are you so emotionally attached to the current cultural concept of what makes a man, a man that you will ignore the facts, or are you man enough to take meat off your menu?

Do you have the "huevos" to go against what society says, to be a cultural revolutionary, to be a virile vegan?

Be Vegan, Be Virile!
