Straight men fear that recycling makes them look gay
One study, Sex Roles, explores the idea of society associating genders with specific environmentally-friendly behaviors.
It shows that straight men are avoiding pro-green behaviors in the fear that they might be accused of being gay.
They also fear that making small changes like using reusable bags, disposing of waste correctly, and using more public transport could damage their masculinity.
