The left’s war on “toxic masculinity” rages on. In their latest shot at culturally castrating possessors of Y-chromosomes, lefty types are giving that awful, toxic manliness a new classification. A mental issue. For reals:
The Counseling and Mental Health Center at the University of Texas at Austin recently launched a new program to help male students “take control over their gender identity and develop a healthy sense of masculinity.”
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.
What the university fails to mention is the left views all masculinity as toxic. God help you if you’re the type of gent who enjoys chomping on steaks, watching football, and leaving the toilet seat up. In UofT’s eye’s, you’re one chest bump away from a straight jacket. One nad scratch away from a padded room.
Leftists pull idiotic stunts like this, then they wonder why so many men are maladjusted. Methinks telling guys their innate characteristics are “problematic” is the culprit. Crazy as it may seem, not every peen-haver responds well to tucking his dangle and rocking a sundress. Some guys are just guys. Some ladies are just ladies and would prefer if men stayed men. Just as an aside.
Progressives think they can socially engineer masculinity out of existence, then remake it in their own image. Hence, classifying it as a “mental health issue.” Sorry lefties, you’re not going to convince us our eggs are scrambled. Try again.
