I'm a vegetarian and a guy.

Carol Adams has a book called The Sexual Politics of Meat that goes into the cultural connections between meat-eating and Western notions of masculinity.

I don't think the connection necessarily holds true in the East, though, e.g., in India or Southeast Asia.

I'd also suspect (although I don't know) that where religion is the primary motive behind vegetarianism, you'd probably see a much more even gender distribution.

Someone done that on a self harm site I visit and almost half were veggies! I gues it shows this lifestyle appeals to the more sensitive of us.
