Restrictive Masculinity?

Because being a man is bad these days

PJ Media reported the following:

Treating masculinity as if it were a mental health crisis, “MasculinUT” is organized by the school’s counseling staff and most recently organized a poster series encouraging students to develop a “healthy model of masculinity.”

The program is predicated on a critique of so-called “restrictive masculinity.” Men, the program argues, suffer when they are told to “act like a man” or when they are encouraged to fulfill traditional gender roles, such as being “successful” or “the breadwinner.”

Though you might enjoy “taking care of people” or being “active,” MasculinUT warns that many of these attributes are actually dangerous, claiming that “traditional ideas of masculinity place men into rigid (or restrictive) boxes [which]… prevent them from developing their emotional maturity.”

As I have written before, everything that defines America is under attack. And yes traditional gender roles is one thing that, in part, defines America

  1. Being a man is great. Exercising one’s manhood is great. Listening to women and feminine men tell you you have to be more like them is NOT great. Walk tall, men, and rejoice that you’re not a woman or soyboy.
