‘Win it’ Wednesday: ‘Meat Is for Pussies’ by John Joseph

Written by PETA | May 26, 2010

It’s summertime, and the living is easy—unless you’re an animal who’s killed for the grill. No one wants to be butchered, basted, and barbequed. For the love of hogs, let’s kick this barbeque season off right by helping men kick their meat habit! And how better to do that than with John Joseph’s book Meat Is for Pussies: A How-To Guide for Dudes Who Want to Get Fit, Kick Ass, and Take Names.


Meat is For Pussies


If the title doesn’t grab your attention, then the subject matter will. More of a boot-camp type of book than a beach read, Joseph makes men face the horrors of factory farming before outlining a plan to guide guys toward a happier, healthier, and more humane lifestyle. Can you say cruelty-free cook-out?

C’mon, you know you want to win this must-read for men. So guys, tell us why you need this book. Ladies, tell us how your brother, father, boyfriend, next-door neighbor, or any guy in your life can benefit from it. The three people who leave comments that most make us want to whip a guy into shape will win a copy of this aptly titled how-to guide.

Here are the deets: The contest ends on June 9, 2010, and we’ll pick the winners on June 11, 2010. Be sure to read our privacy policy and terms and conditions, as you’re agreeing to both by commenting.

Good luck!

    I know Im late but maybe I can get an honorary mention. Heres my pitch. Im a chubby sometimes pasty white dude. Now I have to make clear that Im so white and pasty to be confused with a translucent skinned cave fish because I do go out side from time to time but Im white like I wanna do better for the animals but cheese tastes so good and I travel all the time so its hard to find vegan food on the road I get home and see the cheese and cheese tastes so good etc. Oh and I like cheese. What I would hope to get from this book is insight on how a traveling chubby cheese eating white dude can turn into a traveling noncheeseeating fit dude that can keep up with his daughter. This too I have a 3 year old daughter and Im 38 and I think that if I can take my eating of only biproducts of animals to the next level of no animals or their biproducts it could help me to be a bit better of a role model for Celeste. Of course having a book around for men that uses pussies in the title could be construed as not being a good role model but I want to start with the little things. Plus I think John Joseph wasnt really saying you are a girl if you eat meat I think he was saying if you eat meat you are a fancy pants or a silly child or Fing idiot perhaps. OK so if you think I can get in on this or at least get an honorable mention so that when Celeste is older I can show her that even though Im not perfect I am trying. Thank you PETAs

    I would definitely give this to a colleague of mine. He’s 19 so a year younger than me and eats the worst stuff. He lives off of KFC Gregg’s pasties stuffed full of beef chicken or pork. Or he’ll go to Subway for anything stuffed with meatballs and ham. What’s worst is that he buys KFC but only eats the chicken that’s not on the bone pointlessly wasting the rest of the meat. Surely this then makes the company think that they need to kill more chickens to keep up with ‘demand’?
