    Our own research suggests an additional possibility: men may shun eco-friendly behavior because of what it conveys about their masculinity. It’s not that men don’t care about the environment. But they also tend to want to feel macho, and they worry that eco-friendly behaviors might brand them as feminine.

    Personally I think this is a load of crap, at least from the recycling/littering perspective. I know and regularly fish/hunt with a considerable number of men who can easily be considered "manly" or "mucho", or however you want to label them and not a single one of them has ever willfully just left behind garbage or didn't recycle. Now, while I don't consider snowmobiling, dirt biking, quading, etc very eco-friendly when it comes to fossil fuel use, the problem however is that at the moment there aren't any alternatives. Not everyone enjoys outdoor sports, or wants to stay at home and play video games all day. Oh and as for altruism, really?

      I wish all this "manly" nonsense did not matter. At the end of the day,no one is paying that much attention to you,and your "masculinity",what they are paying attention to is how much of a slob/asshole you are. I wish this masculinity/femininity nonsense would just die and everyone would just act like good,decent people who have no need to prove anything to anybody. And how did masculinity even get linked up to being decent to the environment anyway.

    I do whatever I can to be as environmentally responsible as I can, and manliness never entered into the equation as motivation or demotivation. It's the right thing to do. I too have been in the company of outdoorsman, and they are as ecofriedly a group as you can find.
