Veganism - a sign of feminization?

    The usual thought process behind veganism is some kind of abstract altruism towards unknown, poor animals we are hurting. I conclude that such a naive emotional connection towards creatures in general is a more feminine trait.

    Can it be the result of how women have gained more overall freedom in today's Western cultures, and men are forced to follow them because of obvious sexual reasons?

    In other words, is an increasing level of veganism and vegetarianism the result of the effeminization of a society?

    I saw my religious grandmother kill many chickens and other animals to put food on the table.

    My female cousins and other women their age, on the other hand, said to me they were against making medical experiments on rats while in college. Would their thoughts be different had they needed to kill to eat? I think so.

    I think so, too. But vegans only kill vegetables. Poor veggies. :(

    How about women who eat meat and were willing to kill for survival? Maybe they would kill more carefully but still... I'm not sure most of those girls really cared about animals. It's more like what's trendy these days...

    Is that your dog on your profile picture? Would you be willing to kill and eat him to survive during a famine?

    Ya, the current way of keeping and raising animals for food in a more industrial way today puts a distance between people and animals. It de-emphasizes the emotional connection between them, but it also depicts an image of some imaginary animal in the minds of people, one they can save with not eating their meat. They don't realize that these animals will die anyway, whether they eat them or not. It's a crazy situation, trying to save people from having to kill animals close to them with creating an industry of more 'faceless' animals, versus farms where animals have a greater chance to become almost like family members. And people turn this down. They also don't watch TV.

    To be honest, I don't think industrial livestock production has primarily grown out from such altruistic intentions. It's mainly for making money, as efficiently as possible, just like mass production.
