Veganism: it’s not just for ladies! That revelation comes from (what else) a trend piece in the Globe that repeatedly tries to coin the phrase “hegans.” Why is this newsworthy? Is it the fact that veganism is seen as health-conscious and health-consciousness is the domain of women? Is it because men are supposed to eat man food like steaks and cheese while delicate female flowers are meant to snack on salad? Either possibility is pretty offensive. For the last time: gender does not dictate food preferences.
