In what came as a weird appeal for many, the People for Ethical Treatment For Animals (PETA) has urged women to go on a sex strike i.e., not have sex with men who are meat eaters.
Yes! You read that right!
What Did They Say?
The German division of PETA said that meat eating can be considered a symptom of “toxic masculinity” and said that such habits are killing the planet.
Citing the research from Plos One, the organization stated, “The science speaks for itself: A study published in the journal PLOS ONE found that men contribute significantly more to the climate catastrophe than women, primarily through their meat consumption. Their eating habits result in 41% more greenhouse gasses.”
They targeted the suburban man and said “The suburban men with beer bottles in hand, brandishing tongs while cooking sausages on their expensive gas grills. These barbecue masters believe that they can prove their masculinity to themselves and their fellow humans through their consumption of meat, not only hurting animals but also harming the planet.”
They told the Times Radio that men are considered to have a 40% footprint because they consume more meat than women. Women in Germany have been urged to not have sex with men until they stop consuming red meat.
"Men have a 40 percent higher carbon footprint because they're eating more meat than woman."

A doctor at PETA, Dr. Carys Bennett further said, “We have seen a drop in meat-eating in the UK by 17 percent in the last 10 years, but it’s not enough. We’re still killing one billion chickens, cows, and pigs every year.”
Adopt Vegan Diet
Talking further, she asked people to adopt a vegan diet as it will be beneficial for the environment, promote afforestation, help deal with the pandemic and pollution, and reverse other environmental harms that are caused by eating meat.
They wrote on social media, “Men need to take accountability for their actions. That’s why PETA’s proposing a strike on sex with meat-eating men to persuade them to go vegan.” The organization further opined that the research shows the fact and that now meat-eating men must take steps to rectify the harm they have caused to mother nature and this can be done by going vegan which is the easiest, healthiest, and simplest way.
Not just this, but according to the reports by Telegraph, they have also requested to levy a 41% meat tax so that men think twice before buying meat and other products.
How People Reacted?
As soon as the message by PETA went viral on social media, people started discussing it, and memes were also created.
A user shared a post writing, “Waking up to @peta’s Germany claiming eating sausages and schnitzel is a sign of toxic masculinity and it’s killing the planet. PETA also asks women to go on a sex strike to “save the world”. That is enough internet for today. PS. Slow smoked ribs weren’t mentioned so I’m safe.”
Another user said, “What about men going on a sex strike with women who eat meat? Peta kinda seeming sexist right now.”

One more user took to Twitter and asked, “Do you think carnivorous alpha males were having a lot of sex with the kind of woman who would answer the call for a sex strike from PETA?”
This appeal by PETA has definitely caught the world’s attention and we have to see what happens ahead.
