PETA wants women to go on a sex strike against men who eat meat

PETA believe a sex ban could help ‘save the world’

An animal welfare organisation has come up with a controversial way to convince men to switch to being vegan.

PETA  (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) believes if women go on a sex strike against meat eaters that could finally convince men to stop being carnivores.

PETA, according to a report by The Telegraph, said the sex strike could help “save the world” and end “toxic masculinity”.

Daniel Cox from PETA Germany said men need to wake up and smell the tofu. “We all know them, the suburban fathers with beer bottles and barbecue tongs sizzling 70 cent sausages on their 700 euro grill,” he told the outlet.

He added that the courgette added by the visitor is “eyed with suspicion and only reluctantly tolerated”.

“The fact that Germany’s ‘grill masters’ believe they have to prove their masculinity to themselves and their fellow species through their consumption of meat is not only to the detriment of the animals, however,” Cox went on.

“Now there is scientific proof that toxic masculinity also harms the climate. Therefore, a hefty meat tax of 41 per cent for men would be appropriate.”

In conclusion, Cox added: “A ban on sex or procreation for all meat-eating men would also be purposeful in this context.”

The 41 per cent figure comes from research journal Plos One, who revealed men cause 41 per cent more greenhouse gas emissions than women because of their meat-eating tendencies.

PETA’s proposal hasn’t gone down well, not just with meat eaters.

Conservative MP Alicia Kearns told LBC radio: “It just feeds in to all the worst narratives of the ’90s that women use sex, it’s not something they enjoy, that they should use it as a tool against men.

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

She added that this was another example of PETA’s “shock tactics”.

In Germany, a bratwurst seller told newspaper Bild: “I’m speechless, completely shocked by this statement. I sell bratwurst professionally and more women than men come to me.

“I would have a big problem if my husband wasn’t allowed to have sex anymore.”
