And you wonder why we call them fake news? Maybe it’s because they churn out crap like this.
The New York Times is at it again. Playing the Social Engineering Game. They actually wrote a piece telling parents that they need to raise their boys to thrive in the new ‘pink economy’.
Skills like cooperation, empathy and diligence — often considered to be feminine — are increasingly valued in modern-day work and school, and jobs that require these skills are the fastest-growing.
No mention was made of the fact that there is an intrinsic difference in learning styles between boys and girls — including a difference in competitive vs. cooperative approaches to tasks, or that the massive shift toward feminizing the learning styles in the classroom could actually account for some of the drop in young men pursuing higher education percentage wise.
A book was written for any parent fool enough to try to feminize their young boys. Here are the keys, as taken from the Times Piece:
— Let him cry
— Give him role models … Boys raised without a father figure “fare worse in behavior, academics and earnings. One reason, according to the economists David Autor and Melanie Wasserman, is they do not see men taking on life’s responsibilities.” (While true, this has literally nothing to do with Feminism)
— Let him be himself (By which they really mean, be a social justice crusader) Here’s the quote:
Offer open-ended activities, like playing with blocks or clay, and encourage boys to try activities like dress-up or art class, even if they don’t seek them out, social scientists say. Call out stereotypes. (“It’s too bad that toy box shows all girls because I know boys also like to play with dollhouses.”) It could also improve the status of women. Researchers say the reason parents encourage daughters to play soccer or become doctors, but not sons to take ballet or become nurses, is that “feminine” equals lower status.
Because — obviously — raising a boy is not PRIMARILY an exercise in helping a boy navigate the transition from childhood to manhood. Its about improving the status of women. Nope. No axe to grind there!
Teach him to take care of himself. (good, that’s important)
…to take care of others. (Interesting… what’s THEIR reason for raising this point?)
Women still do more of the caregiving — for children and for older people — and the housework, even when both parents work full time.
So again, it’s not with any benefit for the child in mind. It’s just so he can be a better drone. See a pattern emerging?)
…share the work. (guess where this is going?) resist gender roles in housework … Also share some of the breadwinning.
But what would this story be without any assumptions of male rape culture?
Encourage friendships with girls (reason?) “by the end of preschool, children start segregating by sex, and this reinforces gender stereotype”
But wait! There’s more!
Boys who have friendships with girls are also less likely to think of women as sexual conquests, Mr. Porter said.
Because promiscuity is an exclusive domain of males. Apparently. And would this list be complete without the more obvious insult:
Teach ‘no means no’ — that topic used to come up under the sub-heading of self-control in parental conversations about big ideas like character, religion and chastity. But you don’t really believe in those things. So this is your flaccid substitute.
You might want to try that trick with those young men who just flooded into Europe. It’s apparently a problem there. But let’s just attribute this to the ‘y’ chromosone, because that’s much easier than critical thinking.
Read a lot, including about girls and women — Hold on a second. Why is that second part necessary? How about simply ‘read great books’? Or ‘develop a love of reading which is foundational to success’? Oh right. That’s not really the goal of this New York Times piece, is it?
With agenda-driven articles like that, is it any wonder why anti-feminist themes like THIS one are so popular on the internet?
Maybe you could just use that crappy article to line the bottom of a bird cage, and read this instead:
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles addresses our nation’s abysmal wussification in his NEW book …
The Effeminization Of The American Male
by Doug Giles
Doug Giles, best-selling author of Raising Righteous And Rowdy Girls and Editor-In-Chief of the mega-blog, ClashDaily.com, has just penned a book he guarantees will kick hipster males into the rarefied air of masculinity.
That is, if the man-child will put down his frappuccino; shut the hell up and listen and obey everything he instructs them to do in his timely and tornadic tome.
In The Effeminization Of The American Male, Giles takes ‘Crispin’ from the unaccomplished, prissy and dank corridors of ‘Wussville’ up the steep, treacherous and unforgiving trail that leads to ‘Mantown.’
“Secretly, everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a p*ssy generation.” – Clint Eastwood
This is definitely one of the most politically incorrect books to ever hit the market.
