A good book to read on that: The Sexual Politics of Meat. Long story short, it's all tied to the idea of masculine dominance. Same reasons why men are allowed to be more violent, men are (historically) allowed to get away with lewd comments and such, and bodily commodification.

I drew a lot of ties between meat, strip clubs, and sheep shows after I read this book.

I never really used to understand how intersectionality would work when it came to veganism/animal rights issues, but I've been reading this book and it's really interesting, and has got me thinking about other areas as well. It's definitely worth a read for anyone interested in the topic.

She's an author that has written a lot about the intersections of the feminist movement and the animal rights movement:

I second Eating Animals. I would also recommend the book that convinced me to stop eating meat and started my journey into veganism, The Sexual Politics of Meat by Carol Adams.

There’s a book for you. I’d strongly recommend a read, it covers the exact topic that you’re discussing, but with sources and peer-reviewed material.

Wage gap myth, peddled as recently as the 2016 Presidential election by all Democratic candidates. Weird!

I'm talking about feminism (as a dude) that is about respecting females and not taking advantage of them using any means. I wouldn't want to kill or rape a human and I wouldn't want that for animals either. It's the same argument about killing taken to it's logical conclusion - that is violence at any level (physical, emotional, sexual) is not good.

A less loaded word than feminism would be sexism.

There is a well-reviewed book on the topic too.

I'm not an expert on the nuances, but there are many discussions on this over at r/vegan if you search for feminism/feminist. Here's one.
