Eating Meat Perpetuates “Hegemonic Masculinity”, Professor Says

A Pennsylvania State University sociology professor recently argued that eating meat perpetuates “hegemonic masculinity” and “gender hegemony.”

In the most recent issue of the Journal of Feminist Geography, professor Anne DeLessio-Parson argues that “hegemonic masculinity implies an imperative to eat meat” and that this helps reify other power hierarchies as well.

    I just finished a yummy meatloaf sammich, but I’m not feeling very hegemonic.

      There is nothing wrong with eating more fish. A plate of deep fried halibut, chips and mushy peas can’t be beat.

      • Millie_Woods

        Gotta be deep fried!

      The cucumbers are a nice vegetarian touch!

        Only as long as they were only used as decorations. 😉

    Wanting to eat meat is obviously a colonial attitude. I hope little Justin has that on his list of apologies.

  • canminuteman

    She says that like its a bad thing. If it wasn’t for hegemonic masculinity she’d still be living in a cave, eating bugs and roots and dying in child birth at thirteen years old.

    Let the left eat bum-hole meat.

  • Thomas Henderson

    Is she saying snowflakes and barbecues don’t get along?

    So Argentina started letting in crazy foreign commie female perfessers in back when they had a lefty wacko female pres? Suppose it had to happen ……………

  • Editor

    “Social science” is an oxymoron and this professor is a plain, everyday moron.

      Sociology – the “Dumb Class” for marxism fans who just can’t keep up.

        There is a book — maybe written 20 years ago — called “What’s Wrong With Sociology?” — written by a dissident sociologist with a neoconservative viewpoint. Anyways, one of the contributing chapters deals with the fact that — of all the disciplines at university — sociology majors have the lowest entry marks and SAT scores (tied with education majors, which we can agree are dumb students as well).

    • Watchman

      Wait, are you saying that only gay guys eat meat? ;–)

    A prime example of not getting enough proteins to the brain.

    Hegemonic Masculinity, hmmm this sounds sooooo goooood,
    I get me more meat today.

  • vwVwwVwv

    I think, if she wouldn’t be shy to admit, she would love to have some good Masculine Hegemony for sure, but she is to dumb, ugly and PC for this.

    Dear Professor,
    You’re off your nut, seek help and grab a burger and shake. You’ll feel better.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Professor needs to have a coke and a smile and shut the fuck up.

  • Observer

    Does she support historical figures who were vegetarians, like Adolf Hilter?

    • Jay Harper

      He would have to be a Non-smoking, non-drinking animal lover and Socialist as well. Oh, wait.

    • Watchman

      No, because like Communists excusing every attempt at Communism as ‘not real Communism’, Adolf Hitler was not a true Vegetarian.

  • Manual Paleologos

    Hegemonic masculinity? I am a straight, White, cis male. The whole world is my urinal. No go make me a ham sandwich.

  • felis gracilis

    This prof’s alimentary canal must be reversed because she is regurgitating shit. And no doubt some of her snowflake students are eating it.
    Seriously, taxpayers fund universities to produce this kind of crap. Meanwhile our public infrastructure is crumbling, our military is underfunded, our public safety is compromised and our justice system is dysfunctional. All in spite of the outrageous levels of taxation to which we are subjected.

    Well: Just another efing idiot.
