Men who eat meat should be BANNED from having sex to save the planet, says animal rights group

All men who eat meat should be banned from having sex, according to an animal rights group which says making fun of sausages is a symptom of “toxic masculinity”.

The German branch of animal rights group Peta says men contribute far more to the climate crisis than women, mainly through their meat consumption.

He cites research published in the scientific journal PLOS A last year, which revealed that men emit 41% more greenhouse gases than the female population with their dietary habits.

He suggests that women “go on a sex strike to save the world”, and even proposes to prevent carnivorous men from having children.

Meat and dairy account for 57% of greenhouse gas emissions from food production

Meat and dairy products account for 57% of greenhouse gas emissions from food, according to a computer modeling study.

Overall, taking into account agricultural land, livestock and land use change, global food production is responsible for 17.318 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year, according to the authors.

In total, 57% of this figure, or 9.8 billion metric tons, comes from animal production and 29%, or 5.1 billion metric tons, comes from foods of plant origin.

Beef and rice are the main animal and plant products, contributing 12% and 25% respectively of all emissions related to food production.

The fact that global emissions from animal-based food production are nearly double those from plant-based food production further suggests the environmental benefits of switching to a meatless diet.

“Who doesn’t know them, beer-bottle-handling suburban dads and barbecue tongs, sizzling 70-cent sausages on their $700 grill,” said Daniel Cox, campaign team leader for Peta. Germany.

“Visitor-provided courgettes are viewed with suspicion and begrudgingly tolerated.

“The fact that German ‘grill masters’ believe they have to prove their masculinity to themselves and their peers by eating meat does not just come at the expense of the animals.

“Now there is scientific evidence that toxic masculinity also harms the climate.”

The organization referenced comments by French Green Party politician Sandrine Rousseau, who sparked controversy last month by calling the outdoor grill a “symbol of masculinity”.

“If you want to solve the climate crisis, you have to reduce meat consumption, and that won’t happen until masculinity is built around meat,” the self-proclaimed “eco-feminist” said.

In addition to banning sex and breeding, Cox also suggests a hefty meat tax of 41% for men.

“After all, each unborn child saves 58.6 tonnes of CO2 equivalent per year,” he said.

“For all the fathers who still grill meat and still want children with a future worth living on a livable planet, we recommend changing their lifestyle.”

The call for a sex ban for carnivorous males has sparked outrage in Germany, famous for its love of bratwurst and schnitzel.

Top-selling tabloid Bild printed the story on its front page, calling it a “crazy suggestion”.

Meanwhile, Alois Rainer, an MP from Germany’s Christian Social Union party, who is a master butcher, said the idea was “total nonsense”.

In addition to banning sex and breeding, Cox also suggests a hefty meat tax of 41% for men.

In the UK, Conservative MP Alicia Kearns said it was a “sexist assumption” to think that men eat meat and women don’t, and that women like sex less than men. men and can therefore use it as a tool.

“It just fuels all the worst stories of the 90s that women use sex, it’s not something they like, that they should use it as a tool against men,” he said. she said on LBC’s Cross Question.

“It’s also incredibly focused on heterosexual relationships.”

However, Dr Carys Bennett, Head of Enterprise Projects at Peta UK, said AML it was intended to be “an ironic suggestion”.

“It’s a bit of hyperbole…it’s designed to get men to sit up and take notice,” she said.

“We don’t really care about your sex life… what matters to us is the planet and the animals we share it with.”

Agriculture accounts for over 10% of UK greenhouse gas emissions, making it critical to climate change.

A study conducted earlier this year by researchers at Stanford University and Berkeley, California, found that eliminating all meat production worldwide in 15 years could reduce global carbon emissions by 68 %.

HOW GOING VEGAN COULD ‘SAVE THE PLANET’

A total elimination of meat production in the world in 15 years could reduce global carbon emissions by 68% and save the Earth from global warming, according to a new study.

The researchers carried out computer modeling scenarios of future greenhouse gas emissions up to the 22nd century using publicly available data from the UN.

Eliminating all animal agriculture within the next 15 years would dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, they found.

Meat-rich diets not only endanger our health, but that of the planet, as large-scale farming destroys habitats and generates greenhouse gases.

Animal agriculture contributes to global warming through emissions of methane, nitrous oxide and carbon from farmed animals and their supply chains.

But a full shift to plant-based foods seems unlikely; McDonald’s, one of the world’s biggest meat buyers, told MailOnline in December it was not considering phasing out beef.
