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.
