In the effort to create a lost generation already confused by dozens of choices in how they want to “identify” themselves, the second year of a program to “cure” men of their toxic masculinity is being offered at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Of course no similar program is being offered to cure butch lesbians of their similar affliction, that would be judgmental, derogatory, insensitive and inappropriate. Masculinity is only considered a fault if it is found where nature intended for it to be, in a man.
In adopting Orwellian language along the “there genius in idiocy” or “being girly makes me manly” line of thinking they make an effort to sound philosophical in defining a purpose to their distortion, saying, their, “Goal is to create a sense of security in vulnerability.” Maybe learning to play guitar, curve a Frisbee or bring that math grade up to a “B” was beyond their skill sets and just too damn normal.
The program follows a similar pseudo-male mental neutering program put in place at Duke University in the fall of 2016. Oddly, that nine-week mind screw was actually operated by the feminist dominatrixes at the Duke University Women’s Center as part of their Duke Men’s Project. The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s version is just a six week course, maybe those Madison boys are more like Paul Ryan, not having as much masculinity to begin with speeds the purge process by a third.
In pitching their nonsense, the Madison femiNazis claim a mission to counter what they describe as the harmful effects of society’s masculinity paradigms and pressures and to empower participants to promote “gender equity.”
They claim their “Men’s Project creates a space for critical self-reflection and dialogue about what it means to be a man and how masculinity impacts us and those around us. The experience focuses on the examination of societal images, expectations, and messages around masculinity to empower men to better understand themselves, promote the advancement of gender equity, and raise consciousness in their communities.” That’s just fabulous, isn’t it?
There is no relationship to one’s plumbing to biological masculinity to “qualify’ for the program, you just need to self-identify as a man, with the operation being conducted on what they call a “transformative model of social justice allyship,” whatever that means.
The party gets started with some unmanly bonding at a weekend retreat in February with weekly indoctrination sessions continuing in such important topics as media and pop culture, vulnerability, sexuality, hook-up culture, alcohol, relationships and violence. They cover it all, everything from partying like a schoolgirl to the evils of testosterone-influenced outbursts.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison director of news and media relations, Meredith McGlone, a human unit that we can presume to be female, said the project serves an important purpose. “Recent research suggests college campuses have not effectively addressed [male students’] needs. Research also indicates that expectations around masculinity impact the way in which men experience college.” She needed research to figure that out?
No, but she needed research to document and legitimize the idiotic conclusions as a premise for demeaning and confusing those “vulnerable and strong” boys. She added, “These expectations influence the decisions men make about friendships; spending time outside of class; careers or academic majors; and sexual and romantic relationships. Men are socialized to believe they need to act a certain way to be accepted as ‘masculine’ or have what it takes to be a man.”
She continued, “This can lead to self-destructive behaviors that impair their ability to complete their education. Research indicates that young men are less likely to enroll in and graduate from college, less likely to seek help from campus resources and more likely to engage in risky behaviors such as abusing drugs and alcohol. Research also indicates that programs such as the Men’s Project can counter these negative trends and support college men in their educational experience.”
While those risk factors can and probably should be addressed, changing men into hybrid women is not the right way to do it. To label their natural masculinity as toxic is just another step in the liberals effort to domesticate the population and convert us all into unisex perverts.
On the project’s Facebook page there’s a “Facilitator Spotlight” that tells more than we needed to know about the direction of the program. Khaled Ismail, who surprisingly identifies as a male, is a social justice “educator” or brainwashing programmer as he would have been labeled back in the days when labels were descriptive of the thing they were being applied to.
One of the first things you notice about Khaled is his “Snow White” glittery headband. Moving down the picture he’s quoted as saying, “I am really looking forward to building community with the participants and facilitators and growing the network of folks on campus who are passionate about gender issues and justice.” He’s surely passionate about gender issues, and he wants those facilitators to be as well. Word of warning, boys, keep one eye on old Khaled at the retreat. He might turn up where you least expect it, with some personal facilitation and detox tutoring scheduled.
