Make Masculinity Great Again: New PragerU video discredits toxic masculinity

Campuses across the nation have launched programs in recent years to combat so-called toxic masculinity. Their end game? To make men more like women, ostensibly to end rape, war, fighting and other aggressions.

But making men feminine to end evil is actually a horrible idea, according to the latest PragerU video, headlined: “Make Men Masculine Again.” The five-minute video states in part:

As much as we try to deny the need for real, masculine strength in society, there’s no denying its necessity. Healthy families and strong communities depend on the leadership and bravery of good men.

Yet, the current trend is to feminize young men in the hopes of achieving some utopian notion of equality and peace. And it starts at the earliest ages. In the school classroom, boys are invariably “the problem.” On the playground, aggressive games like dodgeball have long been banished. We tell young men that their intrinsic desire to compete is wrong. Everybody gets a trophy. Don’t run up the score. This anti-male tilt continues on through higher education and into the workplace. It has created millions of tentative men, unhappy women, and confused boys and girls. …

The devaluation of masculinity won’t end well because feminine, passive men don’t stop evil. Passive men don’t defend, protect or provide. Passive men don’t lead. Passive men don’t do the things we have always needed men to do for society to thrive.
