If people see physical strength as what makes a "real man", and think meat is essential for strength, maybe they should be reminded that Popeye got strong by eating spinach, not meat.@Hydrogen I do not know anyone else who has made the holocaust comparison besides me. I just know that at least one Jew found it offensive when I made that comparison with my food allergies before I went Vegan.
I can see this as being true. Its a very plausible theory. I think that people are also so afraid of being a social outcast if they support Veganism, or so afraid that they won't be seen as a "real man" that they instead tend to dis us.
