Americans eat an average of 195 pounds of meat a year, with men consuming much more than women. The study is in the Journal of Cancer Research (pdf).This is scientific research? Anyone would say that this is obvious, unless brainwashed by propaganda that there are no sex differences.
In a series of experiments, people consistently rated meat as more masculine than vegetables. Researchers also found that meat-related words like “steak” conjured male-related words in free association tests significantly more often than female-related words. The word “chocolate” however, conjured more female-related words in the minds of participants. And foods like raw beef or blood were viewed as far more “male” than “female.” And participants rated male meat-eaters as more masculine than male non-meat-eaters.
As a SciAm comment points out, eating tofu is definitely not manly.
"This is scientific research?"
Not really. They know this kind of "research" will get into the media and attract lots of comment.
I don't know if they have any other motive, but I suspect not, even though they would presumably deny that.
