Toxic masculinity

Universities across the nation are taking steps to actively purge male students of what’s been labeled “toxic masculinity.”

Examples abound of campuses hosting training sessions, group meetings, lectures and other programs to effectively cleanse what many campus leaders and left-leaning scholars contend is an unhealthy masculinity in young men today.

On campus, toxic masculinity is often blamed for sexual violence, body shaming, a “hyper-masculinized sporting culture,” acts of domestic terrorism and much more.

For example, a class at Dartmouth College this semester, “The Orlando Syllabus,” identifiesso-called toxic masculinity as playing a role in the mass murder spree at a Florida club during the summer. This despite the fact that the gunman, Omar Mateen, told police on the phone as he committed the massacre he did it on behalf of ISIS.

Other instances of combating toxic masculinity on campus can be found at both the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and Duke University, which launched programs specifically designed for male students to delve into “violent masculinity” and “healthier masculinity” and discuss issues like gender fluidity.

“How has the concept of masculinity contributed to the perpetration of violence in our society?” asks the UNC Men’s Project website.

Duke University started a similar program this semester for male students to reflect on topics such as patriarchy, male privilege, rape culture, pornography, machismo and “the language of dominance,” Fox News reported.

At a mandatory freshmen orientation training at Gettysburg College in August, male students had to watch a documentary which stated in part that the “three most destructive words” a boy can hear growing up is “be a man.” The freshmen also went through breakout sessions in which they were told mass shooting sprees are rooted in toxic masculinity.


This is precisely the kind of poison I was referring to in my previous two videos. How are men supposed to be encouraged to “be a man” when they’re told that everything about being masculine will lead to the destruction of the universe? And lumping in masculinity with the action of Omar Mateen, a loyal follower of ISIS?

I sincerely hope that more women such as myself speak up against feminism. We started this mess, and we have to end it. I read earlier today that over 80% of women don’t identify as feminists. So say something! Speak up. Let your men know that you’re with them and that you appreciate their masculine qualities. Don’t let them die away.

What these feminists seem to want is for everyone to play nice, be fair, and to have equality of the outcome for everyone. Funny thing is that the Russian communists realized this was a falsehood years ago. And many other former communist/socialist countries. Even Putin admits that it’s a failed idea.

Third wave feminism can easily be lumped in with Cultural Marxism/Socialism/Communism because it has the same principles. People are equal no matter what their genetic or biological differences. And the only way to combat those who differ in this opinion, is to beat them down. In this case, beating down men from the time they’re young.

We now have a society where the men have been bashed into oblivion, not wanting to protect the women, and the women are incapable of protecting themselves. I fear what is to come if more women don’t speak up.
