Link: The Sexual Politics of Veganism

I wanted to share an interesting link about the sexual politics of veganism. It discusses how veganism is gendered because it is a movement largely composed of women, and it is devalued through it's feminization. Veganism is marketed to women as a way of obtaining or maintaining sexual appeal to men rather than being a political act. On the flip side, in order to market veganism to men it must be re-masculinized. I suppose that it's not surprising that the lines between sex and food politics are so blurred, considering that in this sexist and consumerist world in which we live, both sex and food are about consumption.
