"Universities work to purge male students of their ‘toxic’ masculinity"

Universities across the nation are taking steps to actively purge male students of what’s been labeled “toxic masculinity.”

Examples abound of campuses hosting training sessions, group meetings, lectures and other programs to effectively cleanse what many campus leaders and left-leaning scholars contend is an unhealthy masculinity in young men today.

“How has the concept of masculinity contributed to the perpetration of violence in our society?” asks the UNC Men’s Project website.

Duke University started a similar program this semester for male students to reflect on topics such as patriarchy, male privilege, rape culture, pornography, machismo and “the language of dominance,” Fox News reported.

At a mandatory freshmen orientationtraining at Gettysburg College in August, male students had to watch a documentary which stated in part that the “three most destructive words” a boy can hear growing up is “be a man.” The freshmen also went through breakout sessions in which they were told mass shooting sprees are rooted in toxic masculinity.

If a woman or a child falls onto the train tracks, where does the signal to the men standing around come from, the signal for him to get in harms way attempting a rescue?

Is that, whatever it is, something we could very well do without? You know, like an appendix.

At some point this equality thing, given enough impetus and primacy, starts to get people killed.

So I guess "Nut up or shut up" is right out.

I guess you'd get into a lot of trouble at one of those training centers if you asked one of the group leaders to use her mouth to purge you of some toxic masculinity.

Maybe there needs to be a movement to purge universities of their toxic leftism.
