The Toxic Mission to Reengineer Men – Minding The Campus

Long, uber-interesting piece here by emeritus anthropology prof at McGill U., much involved and drawing on years of experience, including in the field. Discussing at its end whether anti-masculinity is aimed at solving men’s problems, this:

Yes, being a man is not stress-free, and sometimes we have inner struggles. But do women not also have inner struggles, and is that not in our nature as human beings?

Feminists who simplistically argue that women’s psychological and other problems are all and always the fault of “toxic” men, are doing a very human thing: blaming others for their problems.

That such sad naivete has been adopted by our governments, scientific organizations, and schools and universities does not reflect a very sound understanding of people or the world. Even more so for psychologists, who should know better.

Ideas, conditions, behaviors toxic there are, but masculinity is not one of them.
