Toxic Masculinity: Dude, where are my emotions?

Zyn pouches?

That’s just snus. I definitely know more women than men here in Scandinavia (you know, where it actually comes from) that use snus. It’s not a gendered product at all, and nobody thinks it makes you manly.

A stricter version of high-fat, low-carb regimens like the Atkins diet and keto, the carnivore diet consists of meat, seafood and eggs — period. While some add dairy and a little fruit to the mix, the strictest proponents adhere to what they call B.B.B.E — that is, beef, bacon, butter and eggs. . . . Some of the so-called “meatfluencers” forgo not only carbs but also dishware, eating straight from the cutting board.

A plant-free, low-fiber diet goes against accepted views of what constitutes healthy, balanced eating, Professor Linsenmeyer said. Meat and butter are “very high in saturated fat,” she said. “That increases the risk for cardiovascular disease. If this were my patient following this diet, I would be very concerned.”

There is also the matter of contributing to the warming climate, since meat and dairy production are linked to emissions of methane, a potent greenhouse gas.

For some, going carnivore appears to be a facet of the optimization culture that seeks self-improvement through so-called bio hacking and other methods. For others, there may be an aspect of flexing one’s masculinity and success through the consumption of beefsteak, a luxury in much of the world. It is notable that online promoters almost exclusively post videos eating red meat, though fish is part of the diet.

Heh. Right?

Seems like one more example of the patriarchy’s blinkered disregard for long-term thinking in favor of short-term gains.
