    When academics look for male role models, you never know what they’re going to find. "For one thing, there is not much substantive evidence that male role models are decisive in healthy boys’ development," Michael Kimmel writes in the December 15, 2017 issue of The Chronicle of Higher Education. "They might be nice to have, but the male role model--the elementary-school teacher, the father, the stern but supportive coach--by himself, as a single variable, doesn’t really have much of an independent effect on a boys development." "And that's why single moms, lesbian moms, female teachers, and female coaches can provide...

    A feminist professor at Occidental College recently argued that men must renounce their masculinity and “denounce anyone who chooses to identify with it.” Lisa Wade, a sociology professor at Occidental, published an essay for Public Books calling for people to “attack masculinity directly” to help the nation survive in the wake of President Trump, who she says perpetuates a “vile enactment of masculinity.”

    The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW) released The Nashville Statement, signed by evangelicals and pastors throughout the country. The statement affirms that marriage is between one man and one woman and that the approval of same-sex relationships is sinful. The message comes at a time when some in the evangelical community have revised their views on human sexuality. “Our true identity, as male and female persons, is given by God. It is not only foolish, but hopeless, to try to make ourselves what God did not create us to be,” the statement reads. Article 10 of the statement...

Headline: “Clinical Psychologist: Women ‘Hate’ Harmless Men.” You know, every so often, folks, these stories cross our proverbial desk here. Every six months or so you get a story about male-female relationships of the day and how they’ve changed, you know, what men look for in women today versus 20 years ago, 30 years ago, and vice versa. And we have another one today from a clinical psychologist claiming — his name is Jordan Peterson is the clinical psychologist, professor of psychology University of Toronto. He’s...
  • Least surprising academic study of 2017: physically weak men tend to be socialists

    Face it: losers like socialism because it allows them access to money and goods that they would not be able to acquire through their own powers.  So it should surprise nobody that an academic study finds that poor upper body strength in males correlates with socialist views.  Amanda Prestigiacomo writes at the Daily Wire: An academic study from researchers at Brunel University London assessed 171 men, looking at their height, weight, overall physical strength and bicep circumference, along with their views on redistribution of wealth and income inequality. The study, published in the Evolution and Human Behavior journal, ​found that weaker men were more likely...

    St. Joseph and Manhood Msgr. Charles Pope • March 19, 2017 • I remember once being amused to hear that a 19th century Franciscan theologian (whose name I cannot recall) wrote a six-volume set called “The Life of St. Joseph.” How could one possibly get enough material to fill six volumes? We know so little about Joseph from Scripture. He seems to have been the strong, silent type. Not a word of his is recorded, but his actions have much to say, especially to men.On this feast of St. Joseph, we do well to ponder him as a model...

  • TRENDING: Universities work to purge male students of their ‘toxic’ masculinity

    Universities across the nation are taking steps to actively purge male students of what’s been labeled “toxic masculinity.” Examples abound of campuses hosting training sessions, group meetings, lectures and other programs to effectively cleanse what many campus leaders and left-leaning scholars contend is an unhealthy masculinity in young men today. On campus, toxic masculinity is often blamed for sexual violence, body shaming, a “hyper-masculinized sporting culture,” acts of domestic terrorism and much more. For example, a class at Dartmouth College this semester, “The Orlando Syllabus,” identifies so-called toxic masculinity as playing a role in the mass murder spree at a...

    An online movement of men is shrugging off the stereotype that 'cats are for girls' and flaunting their affinity for kitties, writes Hayley Gleeson. And they're giving others permission to embrace a gentler, more thoughtful kind of masculinity. Myles Loughran is a cat man. 'Cat man' as in, 'cat lady', but with a Y-chromosome. Put another way, Mr Loughran is a man who likes cats — as opposed to a man who likes dogs, say, or miniature pigs. "There's something about cats," the 29-year-old co-owner of Cat Cafe Melbourne tells ABC News. "I feel they can give you that real...

    They are often portrayed as hard-hearted individuals who are putting motherhood on hold in order to climb the career ladder. But women who freeze their eggs are actually waiting for a man who is perfect father material to come along. Researcher Kylie Baldwin, who asked a group of women why they froze their eggs, said: 'I think they were looking for a hands-on father. 'And it was the absence of this particular type of potential father, not just the absence of any partner, that led them to freeze the eggs.

    When it comes to love, Martina Paillant won’t settle for someone who has a credit score below 700. “I need a man who has his life together and can pay his bills,” the 22-year-old Canarsie, Brooklyn, resident tells The Post. Paillant, who attends graduate school in Miami, asks potential suitors their credit scores by the fourth date. While some may call her snooty for checking someone’s FICO number before becoming Facebook official, she’s been focused on her finances since she was 16 years old and has a credit score above 800.

    A YouGov study and documentary has found that only 2% of British young men even consider themselves masculine, with the majority believing themselves to be something in between manly and feminine. Apparently, most view the word masculine as a sort of dirty word. From YouGov: [Snip of YouGov quote...] Of most interest is the implication that men who identify themselves as masculine actually live more psychologically healthy lives. "Psychologically" in the sense that they aren't killing themselves, as suicide is the biggest problem facing UK young men. The words of the study, that they are willing to "talk about their...

    By most available information, Donald Trump will win the Republican nomination. He's not a conservative in any meaningful sense -- he shifts his positions at whim, preaches about the worth of big government and suggests that he will personally "win for America." But after eight years of Barack Obama's passive-aggressive emasculation of Americans, many conservatives have embraced Trump because of his unbridled masculinity. He's Joe Pesci in "Goodfellas": a toxic dude who's fun to watch, but who might occasionally shoot somebody just for the hell of it. On Fifth Avenue, apparently. And receive plaudits from his followers. This is the...

    People magazine's pick for their annual "Sexiest Man Alive" cover story is ... another white guy. David Beckham, the 40-year-old retired soccer star, received the nod on Tuesday, making him the latest in a long line of white men so honored since the magazine started awarding the title 30 years ago. Denzel Washington is the only person of color to ever grace a "Sexiest Man Alive" cover, and that was 19 years ago. Meanwhile, four white actors (Richard Gere, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp) have earned the distinction twice. ~snip~ "I'm not personally slighted by it, majorly because...

    Guardian columnist Zach Stafford, a self-described gay man, says that since masculinity has been “central” to “centuries of war, pillaging, and violence”, the very concept of manhood in modern society should be eliminated. “There is a ‘manhood in crisis’ trend story to match each one pondering whether women can have it all. But manhood isn’t in crisis; it is the crisis,” Stafford wrote in his Thursday column, “It’s time to do away with the concept of manhood altogether.” …
