Deconstructing toxic masculinity

America’s universities are worse than useless.

Take infamous Duke University, for example.

Duke, the school that tried to frame its lacrosse team for gang rape, is offering classes in “constructive male allyship” in which male students are encouraged to “question and deconstruct toxic masculinities.”

The objective of the nine-week course is “unlearning violence,” the Telegraph reports.

“Our purpose is twofold: to foster constructive male allyship, and to question and deconstruct toxic masculinities,” says the school’s Men’s Project on its website.

“We also understand how masculinity in its normative form alienates most – if not all – men, and recognize the part normative masculinity plays in alienating men and reproducing violence.”

“We want to deconstruct toxic masculinities to reconstruct healthier, more inclusive notions of masculinity.”

The organizers say: “We want to explore, dissect, and construct an intersectional understanding of masculinity and maleness, as well as to create destabilized spaces for those with privilege.”

I could go on providing details about this taxpayer-funded nonsense but I think you get the idea.
