This is an episode we’ve wanted to record for a long time, and we hope to continue and expand on this conversation further. As two vegan dudes, we feel a responsibility to stimulate a dialogue among men regarding the masculine ideal in the 21st century as it relates to diet, lifestyle, and health. We believe that the masculine ideal needs a makeover, and should be focused on protection, compassion, and strength over dominance, power, and aggressiveness.
In today’s show, we talk:
- The definition of masculine
- How the masculine ideal relates to diet and lifestyle
- Examples of masculine pressures
- Why compassion, vulnerability, and protection should have a higher priority in the masculine ideal
- And more!
What do you think? How should masculinity be shifted in today’s world? Does being vegan increase or decrease your masculinity? Girls: what do you look for in a man? Let us know!
Thanks for listening, go eat some plants, and what’s your thought for food?
