If you go to Lehigh University and are wondering why female students are only interested in assholes, it’s because their alternative is guys who cuddle. If you’re a co-ed and those are your two options, at least the dudebro doing kegstands isn’t a giant pussy. Plus the cuddlers are always there to listen to you complain about the dudebro.
A Pennsylvania university is promoting the concept of men cuddling as a way to help them deal with stress and “redefine masculinity.”
I should have known. Must be the toxic kind of masculinity (see Study Tries Linking Climate Change with ‘Toxic Masculinity’ and PETA Releases Bizarre Vegetable Fruit Phallic Ad in Efforts to Fight “Toxic Masculinity”). Out of all the things the left has come up to divide people and delegitimatize anyone who disagrees with them, toxic masculinity seems to be a favorite. Next only to making white privilege a thing. Or attempting to make it a thing.
Dr. Christopher Liang, a counseling psychology professor at Lehigh University’s College of Education, recently came out in support of a Philadelphia area “Men‘s Therapeutic Cuddle Group,” a function advertised by Lehigh University in a news release. The Meetup.com page for the group currently has 69 members…
…and the group has held 46 events so far. The meetups are held once every other week.
Organizers have established quite an expansive set of guidelines for attendees. The men attending must be “hygienically sound” and “remain fully clothed at all times.” The group’s organizers state that all cuddling is “non-sexual.” However, they do note that participants may become aroused during cuddling and that if that occurs, it should be treated as a normal thing.
It’s only a normal thing if you’re a bro who likes to cuddle with other bros. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I’m sure the Cuddle Club is a safe space where you can just hug it out, bitch. But let’s not pretend. Men hugging other men isn’t combatting masculinity. If you’re a dude who wants to cuddle other dudes, an overabundance of masculinity isn’t your problem.
So if you’re wondering why she’s telling you about her feelings while letting some townie do a body shot at ladies night, you don’t need to wonder long. It’s not her, it’s you.
Back to the main thrust of whatever the main aim of Cuddle Corner really is, we wouldn’t want to combat “toxic masculinity” by doing masculine things. Like weightlifting, or trudging through the woods. Camping. Chopping firewood. No, has to be cuddles and snugs.
Good luck with all the left swipes, guys.
