Most meat-related research focuses on binary differences between men and women, ignoring differences within both genders. Through an online survey (N = 870), we investigate meat consumption behavior and how this is related to gender identity and new masculinity norms. The results confirm differences in meat consumption behavior between men and women, but also disclose more complicated differences within both groups, related to gender identity and agreement with masculinity norms. The findings also highlight the link between masculinity and red meat in particular, compared to white meat. The implications of this study for improving personal and environmental health are discussed.
