Feminists use St. Michael’s College hazing scandal to attack masculinity

David MenziesMission Specialist

Details regarding so-called hazing rituals at St. Michael’s College in Toronto are downright gasp-inducing, and police are now investigating six cases that involve students of the all-boys Catholic school that are sickening.

Part of the investigation involves who knew what and when, and it’s a certainty that when all is said and done, heads will roll.

In the meantime, a perverse sidebar has emerged in that, one can’t pick up a paper or listen to a TV or radio broadcast without hearing two words bandied about by the usual suspects, because according to them, “toxic masculinity” is to blame for the atrocities.

The term is used to designate manhood as something defined by violence, sex, status and aggression. But, it isn’t really about toxic masculinity, but rather, masculinity PERIOD.

And they’re using the St. Mike’s scandal as an attack on all men, not just the goon squad, because for third-wave feminists, the mere concept of masculinity is in itself offensive.

So, why don’t hear the term “toxic femininity” bandied about? Search for sorority houses that are under investigation for hazing rituals gone wrong and you’ll see plenty of stories about women bullying other women, physically and psychologically.

We also know that not all masculinity of a violent nature is considered “toxic” by feminists and progressives. In fact, it’s actually encouraged when used to further a leftist narrative.

In the end, there’s no such thing as “toxic femininity” despite evidence suggesting otherwise, and when it comes to the Left’s vision of masculinity, it’s okay for men to get in touch with their “toxic” side, as long as it’s used against anyone espousing a contrary opinion to progressive values.

Jihadi Justine Trudeau is also as bent as a nine bob note by the looks of it .

David – excellent point. These kind of smears by MSM are common and despicable and why they need $600 to prop them up. I have heard about the St Mike incident and will take your word that they are horrific assaults.

Of course no sane adult male would condone such behaviour and you are quite right to differentiate this from hazing. I saw a clip that suggests that it may actually be lack of (ritualized?) conflict with other males which prevents them from developing compassion and self-awareness of where the line between acceptable behaviour and abuse lies.

We will never know the names of these offenders. Their records will be sealed.
Another gift from the liebrals is the young offenders act. Had these offenders been 18 they would have serious records and prison time. Years ago a friend of mine took /stole his parents car and crashed it at the end of the street. The story was in the local paper name and all. We did not see my friend for months as he was grounded and made to work off the damage to the car. He was 13 years old. Shame in a community has its place.

The young offenders act was intended so children would not have a criminal record for life for stealing a candy bar.
Thanks to the liebrals it is now used by gangs to recruit young people under 18 to do dirty work and receive a slap on the wrist. The elites brought this in to save one of their own from having a public criminal record.

This is also true of the faint hope clause, murder someone and still get out. Now they all get out at some point. Another elites son needed a way to get out of a murder conviction with a life sentence.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for an answer from the Trudeau Liberals. Someone want to explain what violating some poor kid with a broom stick has to do with ‘masculinity’? Sounds more like ‘homo-erotica’. Feminist man haters are too in the ‘man hatred tank’ to understand that this kind of nonsense only makes them appear to be even more off the wall than they already appear to be.

Do they consider Antifa (Ultrafa) toxic? What about Sharia law and Muslim extremists?

How about toxic journalism , toxic media and toxic academia which are drivers in the decline of every value in our culture and society ?
And isn’t it ironic that the youths involved in this prurient event have all been brought up in the anti -bullying pro-inclusion indoctrination by the feminist leftist educators.

In my MGTOW activism in Canada my nemesis was (is?) a feminist professor of criminology….who kept the movement under surveillance for a decade and a half (umm…no…actually longer) and that scrutiny did not lead to even one arrest or conviction…

So why is criminology a feminist topic of interest?….Because ….from a “feminist perspective”…. being male is just ….CARRRIMMINALLL!!!

How come the “feminists” are mysteriously silent when it come to the mass rapes committed by Islamists all over Europe and all over the world ?
Where is their “mosque too” movement ?
What a hypocritical joke " feminists" are.

Feminists are to blame for the sexual assaults. They have taught everyone to ignore male suffering and have put the focus 100% on female victimhood. That is why the sexual assaults have continued to this day.
Feminists still insist that we ignore male victims of domestic violence. What happened to the missing and murdered aboriginal men? Feminists say that their lives don’t count.

KEITH BARNES…off subject. Looks like it is not only Canadian Journalists that will be bought off.
Our favorite, Nigel Farage apparently was bought off by the UK Government to shut down the UKIP Party, therefore clearing the way for a HARD Brexit to fail as it did today.
This man of the cloth tells the story. 5 min.

Evelyn Sewers—- Good Question ? Do some women (feminists) have penis envy? I am told that Universities have up to 22 courses on different categories of Woman’s Studies and 1 for men. (gay men) You would think that your question would be studied in these courses?

I wanted to say something about College. I went to one for a while here in Canada.
I went for a Health Record Technician. I only went for a little while. That was a long time ago. I’d say maybe 35 years ago. The teacher (male) said when we were in class that women had penis envy. That kinda got me mad. Maybe a lot of women are mad because of this?
Just thinking why they are so mad?
Maybe more like Rosie O’Donnel?

If you do a search on this subject, there are pages and pages on it.
The first to coin this as ‘toxic masculinity’ was a man, Bill Dunphy who is a former alumni (doesn’t say who or what he is and why he was interviewed), interviewed by CTV on Nov 19
Obviously, the feminists are now taking ownership of this claim.

Apparently, many men are glad they went through hazing. Who would want to be near a man who even thought this way. Strikes me as some pretty dark underlying psychological problems.

If an entire gender is judged by the behaviour of it’s worst examples…then feminists are nothing but a bunch of whores, gold diggers, madams, mamasans, Lady MacBeths, Jezebels, Karla Holmolkas…..

And Hillary Clintons………..;-)

Hazing rituals have become worse over time. They reflect the culture , they have to. Everything is a reflection of culture. Maybe we should be a little more careful about what our kids are exposed to at home as well as at school, and Church these days for that matter. When school curriculum teaches kids to put veggies where the sun don’t shine and all the other nasty stuff taught mostly by women I might add, it has to have an effect, a toxic affect on our kids, who , guess what will grow up to be sick and troubled adults.

Hazing is about power and control at its root. You know what else is about power and control? Female genital mutilation, which is also a hazing ritual performed by Muslim women onto little girls. The women do the cutting, They hold her down and one does the cutting, So the feminists can take their toxic shit and stick it where the sun don;t shine. Make yourselves useful and stop SOGI in schools, stop promoting mental illness and perversion. It could help.

“Feminists use St. Michael’s College hazing scandal to attack masculinity”

Well, that’s kind of stupid. Because forcibly sticking an object up a little guy’s arse doesn’t have much to do with masculinity.

Typical of uneducated youth with gang mentality but to be fare, perhaps it should be asked, what, if any, was the character of the Lad whom was being Broom Handled. Did he commit the sin of ratting on the Gang?
