I don't eat it myself but I have no problem with people eating beef, provided they're willing to pay the true cost.
Without the massive subsidies the beef industry currently enjoys that T-bone would $50 at the store. That price is only going to go up as the nationwide drought becomes the new normal.

The basis for the first question is more legit, even if it's phrased horribly, with the weaselly "some people are speculating" phrase. Asking if it's why she got the job is low.
Barra has been tasked with rehabilitating GM's image and in her first video to the company said about the recall scandal, "As a member of the GM family and as a mom with a family of my own, this really hits home for me." She's the one being questioned by Congress and grilled by the media, so it's reasonable to question how a female CEO might change those optics.
The 2nd question is just pure sexism.
