The truly powerful protect the vulnerable. The truly strong do not exploit others to prove their strength. Real strength comes from character. Strong individuals of any gender are mere blustering bullies if they use their power to dominate and harm others, especially the most vulnerable beings in the world, animals, including the ones raised on farms.
Real men know they do not have to eat animals in order to be manly. After all, what is manly about exploitation and killing? Nothing - these things are shameful, not a mark of any kind of real man.
Real men, real smart men, know we can all thrive on plants. Numerous vegan bodybuilders have proven the point repeatedly that rippling, bulky muscles are obtainable by vegans just as readily as by meat-eaters. Athletes in many specialties are turning to plant-based diets because this way of eating offers faster recovery, higher achievement and greater performance.
Real men have the wisdom and strength to choose a vegan lifestyle even if it may be ridiculed by others.
Toxic masculinity is about hateful dominance. It is a pathological cover for deep-seated insecurity. True masculinity is about using strength to stand up for the weak, to stand up for what is right, to live with a purpose beyond merely thumping one's chest in some domineering display of arrogant superiority.
Eating animals leads to having blocked arteries, heart disease and stroke. There is nothing strong or masculine about lying in an emergency room weakly gasping for air after a self-induced heart attack brought on by eating exploited innocent animals.
Real men protect animals - they don't hurt, kill and eat them.
Real men have the strength to learn and the courage to change their habits - real men are vegan. Learn how to do it here.
