Dump Masculinity!


The above-pictured J-school professor contributes the following Deep Thoughts:

We need to get rid of the whole idea of masculinity. It's time to abandon the claim that there are certain psychological or social traits that inherently come with being biologically male. [...]

I don't think the planet can long survive if the current conception of masculinity endures. We face political and ecological challenges that can't be met with this old model of what it means to be a man. At the more intimate level, the stakes are just as high. For those of us who are biologically male, we have a simple choice: We men can settle for being men, or we can strive to be human beings.

Perhaps HIS "masculinity" prevents him from being a human being. Then he should speak for himself, or whatever he actually is...

He's what Ah-nold would call a "girlie man."

So what does he propose we do?

Man and woman are biologically, emotionally, DIFFERENT. God made man and woman different...that doesn't mean he made one better than the other, but it also doesn't mean that they are identical in every way, shape, and form.

Give me a masculine man any day. They're the ones that tend to be the most reliable.

As any 4 year old could tell ya...men and women ARE different. Not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. Having a moron like this molding young minds terrifies me. :/

He needs to apply for the Anglican priesthood.

Dad29, hey, help a Catholic brother out and put me on your blogroll if possible.

God bless,
