Dating Soyboys: Women's View of Veg* Men in Romantic Relationships
  • Undergraduate Thesis
  • Main Findings: Most women tended to view veg* diets as a masculine strength and an indicator of kindness, a concept I dub strong-kindness. With strong-kindness, this version of ideal masculinity moves a little more into the feminine side while still remaining firmly within the masculine part of the binary.
  • Advisor: Dr. Edson Cruz
