Fox News host Jesse Watters was questioning sociology professor Dr. Anne DeLessio-Parson about her claim that it’s anti-feminist for men to eat meat because it reinforces gender stereotypes.
Asked how eating meat perpetuates the patriarchy, the feminist professor said “it’s really complicated” and appeared unwilling to try to simplify it even with four minutes in which to do so. But as she tried to explain that everything we eat, wear, and purchase are “fundamentally political acts,” a woman walked in and placed a plate with a large steak on it front in front of Watters.
“I’m having a steak right now because I’m starving,” the Fox News host told her.
“Perfect,” DeLessio-Parson replied. “I wish I could have half of that, but this doesn’t look vegan, and I’m trying to be vegan.”
As Watters chewed on a piece of medium-rare beef, the professor tried to explain to him that “it’s not fair” that he’s enjoying meat that he hasn’t hunted for himself.
