Men Taking Classes To Unlearn 'Toxic Masculinity'

Rebel Staff

Thanks to progressives, men are being vilified in the western world like they never have been before. Now they are being told to take classes where they can unlearn aspects of "toxic masculinity."

“We must talk to other men, hold them accountable, and not turn the other way or stay silent when we see sexual assault or harassment. I believe men can stop rape, sexual assault, and street harassment in the name of eradicating rape culture. I believe we must also talk about the whole spectrum of misogynist acts that are rampant in our world today.” – Tim Wright

A partnership between Collective Action for Safe Spaces, ReThink, and DC Rape Crisis Center, Rethink Masculinity is a men’s consciousness building group in which people identifying as men collectively learn how social constructs of masculinity harm themselves and the people around them, and work to construct healthier masculinities. We offer a two month long class where participants meet together once a week for 3-4 hours. These sessions are designed to equip and empower participants to work towards building new models of masculinity.

The curriculum is intended to improve men’s understanding and practices of consent, emotional labor, workplace discrimination, intervention against gender-based violence, and more. Our goal is to create a community in which men hold each other accountable as we become better allies with women, gender non-conforming people, and other people of marginalized identities. We believe that by doing this, we can become our most authentic selves.

Left-wingers regularly claim that they are open minded to all races and genders... except for white men, apparently!

The pendulum of political correctness has swung so far to the left that showing any sign of masculinity is considered risky. Women, homosexuals, and minorities are all celebrated in the Western world and are told to embrace everything about their unique selves. Meanwhile, men are told the exact opposite, as their masculine characteristics are being slammed as "offensive."

Can you imagine what would happen if there were a class for women in which they are taught how to lose their feminine qualities? Or a class for homosexuals in which they are taught to not be gay? Classes such as these would make headlines and enrage leftists all over the country. However, since masculinity is the target of this class, it is given a free pass. 

These days, it seems that many leftists would rather have their male children turn out to be transgender than to actually have them be straight, masculine men. This shows the hypocrisy of leftists once again. If we were truly to become a society that loves and celebrates all genders, then we must celebrate masculine qualities as well.

Well Andrew, that explains a lot about your posts.
Too bad you have been on rejected on all fronts. Seriously.

Something like that. As I said, misanthropy is my calling.

No, I’ve never celebrated the hallmark holidays. Not growing up, not now.

Society & your family has rejected you? I get it!

So you never celebrated Christmas or Thanksgiving?
commented 2017-10-25 13:52:55 -0400
You assume I celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas? Interesting…

I don’t go to “gatherings”. Misanthropy is far more exciting.

Andrew’s bathroom activism gives her something to do. Imagine all the eye rolls of her relatives at Thanksgiving and Christmas!
When they have quite heard enough of her transgender preaching, she moves on to her next favourite subject…EV’s She is of course, a theoretical electric vehicle owner.
The applause when she finally leaves the gathering can’t be heard by Andrew, as she in congratulating herself for “enlightening” her family on all the nonsense that preoccupies her day!

Andrew you seem to hate men being around women but you want them to be able to use their washrooms?

I see Andy S has come out of the closet as the craven class bigot he is.

The Left is all about taking over and turning the Western countries into communist countries, and in their view, they can’t succeed if they don’t oppress the White Male, the creators and keepers of same.

Wow Andrew Stephenson, your bigoted post is very offensive!

“Krispy LaRue commented 1 hour ago
‘Toxic Masculinity’ has already been unlearned in countries like Sweden and Germany, and we see the end result of it: the menfolk losing their jobs, their culture, their sisters and daughters, their dignity, and even their homeland, to invasive forces.

So … no thank you. "

Versus… what, exactly? The model where “toxic masculinity” is socially acceptable (eg, blue collar communities in the US and some parts of rural Canada) yet where adherents are virtually unemployable, to the point where unemployment, substance abuse, and suicide have become very real public health problems among them, and for whom the only hope is an orange carnival barker who hawks meaningless hat-based catchphrases?

Is that actually better?

Proud of my toxic masculinity. Look out pussy boy!

I’d love to take that class. I think it would be funnier ’n hell. I always welcome a chance to laugh at idiots.

Liberace was more masculine than many of the left wing males today.

The funniest part of all this is that the SJW fools think that they this will get them around more women, then they realize that even SJW women still go for the non neutered guys.

Jamie MacMaster very well put.
These classes are merely mental castration.

When women learn to deal with having the toilet seat UP all the time instead of having the toilet seat down ALL the time, then we’ll talk…yeah, that pendulum is swinging way back over the other way for a while on that toilet seat thing, you porcelain feminazis.
So the air I exhale – co2 – is a toxic pollutant causing AGW, the Christian beliefs I hold are bigoted and something something and my conservatism is rightwingfascistracist and now I find out my natural born manliness is toxic too…I guess I’m just a nasty piece of work – according to the left!
Well, I’ll be hanging on to my cojones, thankyouverymuch.

We should look at it from another point of view:

Women should learn collectively how social constructs of femininity and feminism harm themselves and the people around them, and should work to construct healthier understandings of the world.

They need to improve women’s understanding and practices of consent, emotional labour, unfair workplace sexual guile for advancement, intervention against female-based entitlement, threat of claims of sexually inappropriate behaviour as a means of control, and more. Their goal should be to create a community in which women hold each other accountable as they become better allies with men, gender conforming people, and other people of marginalized and majority identities. Women should learn that not everyone is interested in their feelings.

Over the past thirty years educators have taken the belief that girls need special attention and non-competitive learning environments, taking away most interest in assisting males with their learning needs. Educators have made a concerted effort to eradicate male competitiveness and male behaviour from children. Males have not been given the tools to advance to universities, ergo more females are graduating with degrees than males. Universities also have minimum quotas on females accepted. Then there are the foreign applicants and minority quotas. What is left can be for males and then white males.

Women have been advanced in formerly male hard labour endeavours, many times because physical standards have been reduced and, of course, hiring quotas or women only hiring. Who cares about merit if you must be politically correct.

Now, any male behaviour has been labelled offensive, insensitive, aberrant, or just plain wrong. If males show interest in females, they are labelled sexual predators.

Unfortunately, the SJWs and Politically Correct have worked their way through the system, taken control of the system, and destroyed the concept of thinking for oneself.

I posted this on the NFL story, but it pertains to this issue even more.
This is a former NFL offensive lineman, now a Minister: Reverend Tandy McGlassen.
He sums it up completely what is happening with men, boys and families. Plus he puts the NFL stuff in perspective.
Very good.

What a bunch of ball-less cucks!! Keep them away from me & normal men! Just our presence would cause these cucks to be triggered into sucide, and we may just wanna help them.

Socialism preparing the population for Jihad. CAIR, or whatever they call themselves now, is likely behind this.

Sounds like they want men not only gelded but they want those same men to also do the wet work..!!!
Too many blue pills with a thin layer of red for disguise..

Sounds like they are insisting men sign up to be gelded!
