‘MEN DON’T HAVE TO EAT MEAT’

Closer (UK) - - Real Life -

It’s ex­tra­or­di­nary that re­search has found Bri­tish men are afraid to choose a veg­e­tar­ian op­tion in a restau­rant for fear of be­ing so­cially shunned. If I go out with my male friends, we’ll go for a steak din­ner be­cause we all like meat, but if we were go­ing for lunch, and not at a meat restau­rant, it might be dif­fer­ent. If I fan­cied a veg­etable risotto, I’d feel to­tally com­fort­able or­der­ing that, and I wouldn’t feel that I may not be con­sid­ered “mas­cu­line” by do­ing that in front of my friends. I just choose food that I like the sound of, and I some­times go to a restau­rant and think the veg­e­tar­ian op­tion sounds really de­li­cious and in­ter­est­ing, so that’s what I go for.
