Uh-Oh Duke to tackle Masculinity

The basic premise it seems is that if it has testicles, it is bad

Duke University, home of the Duke Lacrosse Rape Hoax, now features a program to help students hate themselves for being men:

The Women’s Center is launching a new initiative focused on redefining masculinity for Duke men.

The Duke Men’s Project is a nine-week long, storytelling-based program starting Wednesday that aims to discuss masculinity, feminism and intersectionality. It hopes to “create a space of brotherhood fellowship dedicated to interrogating male privilege and patriarchy,” according to its Facebook page. …

The program consists of a nine-week curriculum in which a group of male-identified students meet weekly to discuss themes and learning objectives planned by the leadership team, [leadership team member Dipro] Bhowmik explained.

“[The goal of the initiative is to] critique and analyze their own masculinity and toxic masculinities to then create healthier ones,” he said.

The sessions will cover a wide range of topics including male privilege, masculinity and the language of dominance, sexuality and gender diversity as well as intersectional feminism.

Good Freaking Grief. It is a course to convince young men that being men, and liking girls, looking at girls, flirting with girls, etc is bad. It is about teaching young men to feel guilty for simply being male. Because, of course male is the patriarchy, and male is “privilege” and so on. just more of the War on Gender, especially traditional gender roles
