With real headlines like this, you’ve got to feel bad for satirists. They’re running out of room to work.
Here’s a ridiculous new take on ‘toxic masculinity’.
By the way… Texans — how do you feel that this is happening right there in your University of Texas?
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.”
They suffer as opposed to what, exactly?
Being permitted to pursue a life as an Online gamer? Able-bodied welfare cheat? Deadbeat dad?
Though you might enjoy “taking care of people” or being “active,” MasculinUT warns that many of these attributes are actually dangerous, claiming that “traditional ideas of masculinity place men into rigid (or restrictive) boxes [which]… prevent them from developing their emotional maturity.”
Any studies on the negative effects of drifting through life without purpose, there, genius?
Part of the appeal of people like Jocko and Dr Jordan Pederson (not to mention our own Doug Giles!) is the call to step up and OWN your life to take charge, and not be a victim.
Jordan’s works, for example, including such ‘triggering’ advice as ‘clean your damn room’ are not only viewed by men as empowering them to take ownership of their lot in life, but leads to better outcomes in other areas like school achievement.
Not like the Intersectional Feminists have ever really cared about any of that.
Oh, wait! The article mentions evidence.
There is no evidence that masculinity itself contributes to violence. Universities that run similar programs, such as UNC-Chapel Hill and Northwestern, have admitted that their programming isn’t supported by any evidence.
So much for how much these activists claimed they ‘effing love’ science.
They’re going off half-cocked.
Well… so to speak.

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
