The unending war against masculinity and men

For the first time in its history, the American Psychological Association (APA) has issued guidelines for mental health professionals working with men and boys. That may not sound like a momentous event, but the APA is a powerful body. It has 117,500 members, including the vast majority of practicing psychologists, and an annual budget of $115 million. Its guidance documents carry the imprimatur of scientific authority and are hugely influential when it comes to policies and behavior in public institutions. This edict will be referred to by university administrators when policing sexual interactions on campus, by the courts when deciding who to award custody to in divorce hearings and by HR departments when assessing complaints about male employees. It’s not an exaggeration to say this new guidance will affect the lives of millions of men and boys for years to come.

I cannot claim to have read the entire 30,000-word document, but I’ve got the gist: masculinity is a bad, bad thing. Traditional male qualities like courage, self-reliance, competitiveness, stoicism, personal ambition and a love of adventure are ‘psychologically harmful’. On the face of it, men and boys might appear to benefit from ‘patriarchy’ — after all, 95.2 percent of the CEOs of Fortune 500 companies are men — but in reality the emotional repression needed to maintain this ‘privilege’ exacts a terrible toll. It is the ethical duty of psychologists, as well as parents, teachers, coaches, religious and community leaders, to root out these masculine pathologies and help men become…well, less manly.

If you’re in any doubt about the takeover of the American psychological profession by grievance studies professors, look no further than these guidelines. There’s scarcely a sentence that isn’t freighted with the ideology of the social justice left. Gender is ‘socially constructed’ and ‘non-binary’; sex is ‘assigned at birth’ rather than observed and recorded; ‘dominant masculinity’ is historically dependent on ‘the exclusion of men who are not white, heterosexual, cisgender, able-bodied and privileged’; psychologists should learn about ‘the impact of racism and homophobia on the behavior and mental health of boys and men’ and ‘counter the damaging effects of microaggressions’; on it goes. Racism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, ageism, ableism… blah, blah, blah. The word ‘transgender’ occurs more often (56) than ‘masculine’ (53). This isn’t impartial, evidence-based advice. It’s a manifesto.

Needless to say, this identitarian mumbo jumbo is about as ‘scientific’ as the ravings of David Icke. The ‘unhealthy’ male characteristics the APA believes are created by ‘gender stereotypes’, such as a reluctance to spend hours talking about your feelings, are not foisted on men by white, heteronormative society. Rather, they’re rooted in our biological nature. Contrary to the postmodernist dogma that the differences between men and women are ‘socially constructed’, men exhibit the same basic qualities regardless of what sort of society they’re brought up in. The psychological drives experts attribute to ‘Western culture’, such as territorial aggression, date back to the emergence of homo sapiens from the primeval forest. Indeed, many masculine traits are cross-species, too. When baby monkeys are given the option of playing with toys, the males choose trucks and the females pick dolls. The traditional male characteristics these pseudoscientists are objecting to are part of our ineradicable essence.

What does appear to be genuinely psychologically harmful is this unending war on masculinity. The effect of telling men that their desire to protect and provide is ‘sexist’, as well as persuading women they’re better off without us, has been to unleash an epidemic of family breakdown. A whopping 25 percent of American children are being raised by single mothers. No doubt the APA thinks boys who grow up without fathers are better off. After all, they’ve been spared exposure to noxious male role models. But the grim reality is they’re more likely to drop out of school, become alcohol and drug addicts and end up in the criminal justice system.

Meanwhile, the men who’ve been told that they’re no longer needed spend their lives playing video games, getting addicted to opioids and, in increasing numbers, committing suicide. The average life expectancy of American males last year was 76, down for the second year in a row. If the APA is looking for toxicity, it should start by examining itself.

That kind of corruption is infecting all kinds of science lately, making it not science at all.

It's good that a few people are talking about it, but I'm still in search of a long term strategy for defeating such steps toward national suicide. One reason I like Trump is exactly because he is the politician most resistant to being bullied by SJWs.

The American Psychological Association has declared masculinity a vile, malignant, tainted, dread disease of the brain, equivalent to demon possession, and shot through by White Cultural Corruption, Imperialist Supremacy, and Co-optation.

Cool!

By the way, APA, got any fun new twists on torture and mind control for the CIA? You were so good at it after the Patriot Act for Bush and Cheney.

I saw that on Tucker Carlson. It's crazy, the left is really spending a lot of money to make sure that boys don't turn out to be boys. That men become weak, so they can agree and surrender to the gender dysphoria that left is pushing onto them.

This is leftists war on men. They hate normal men. And they start by ruining them as children in schools, just like Nazis who took over schools as the way to brainwash next generation.

Psychology has gone from trying to understand human mental development and why some are normal and some abnormal to calling normal abnormal and abnormal "normal".

A couple examples are sexuality; homosexuality and transsexuality/transvestism were considered types of neuroses; now they are not universally called even "abnormal".

In fact, today, some "professionals" in the mental health business would say that I have a neurosis for my posting this.

But, I know better.

Well, they fit that criteria you mentioned, including facial hair with the mandatory 4in or so beard. All the pussy on Earth ain't worth kissing a rug 4 times a day, though.

Absolutely. While recently in Mexico an "empowered" American wommyn entered the resort and spoke loud and rudely at the bar. Maybe a 4 not even worth looking at. After her mewling beta husband had a brief alpha epiphany he told her calmly to use her inside voice (remember like talking to a child). Within milliseconds she burst out into loud yelling and cacophonical singing out of spite completely disregarding her husband and the poor bartenders who are "trained" to always be super friendly to their American visitors. A real American husband back in the days and a Muslim man today would have slapped her and the situation would have been resolved as inside the womyn are yearning for dominance as it is in their biology. Today in modern degenerating western Democracies the man's only option is to walk away (divorce) and never look back. It was a total disgrace.

He had no good options.

If he slapped her, another American/Canadian/Euro tourist would have demanded the hotel call the cops (who would be the tourist police) and it's a 50/50 whether he'd be arrested. Whether a White Knight or another Woman.

If he dragged her upstairs, ditto.

If he ignores it, he's putting up with BS.

Best thing in THESE times is to walk away

Don’t marry emotionally immature princesses. I think that’s moral of the story.

He could shake her violently, that is a trick that I’ve seen work. But that won’t change a bitch into a woman.

Could backfire, she could get turned on by his surprise toughness, then create incidents in order to get the tingles.

I agree. Islam is actually the enemy of all Western values.

Just saying that in those respects, Muslim men know what they are doing. Most Western men haven't got a clue.

I totally live alone, women are barely allowed into my domain, they just walk all over you, yet want to be dominated, strange lot really and I was raised by some mean women, enough so I would never get married. I have a next door neighbor, if she see's me she will instantly start bitching at me, I mean she's just ragging about anything, (I'm not listening, ignoring her), as if I'm like .. the problem with the world or something.

I find it kind of amusing in a way.

What Representing Men in Divorce Taught Me About Fatherhood | Marilyn York | TEDxUniversityofNevada


Attorney Marilyn York owns a Men’s Rights Family Law Firm in Reno Nevada, established in 2001. She and her ten female employees focus on representing men for two reasons: 1. As her talk explains, fathers are crucial in the upbringing and development of their children; and 2. Fathers are the disadvantaged parent in family court and society and while the laws are improving, the statistics are not. There are currently more than 17,000,000 children growing up in America without their fathers and every year this number is growing. According to the Center for Disease Control, children from fatherless homes account for 90% of homeless and runaway children; 71% of high school dropouts and 63% of youth suicides. Listen to this talk to find out how you can help America's 17,000,000 fatherless children avoid these fates! Marilyn D. York is a Men's Rights Divorce Attorney, licensed in California since 1998 and Nevada since 1999, where she is a Certified Family Law Specialist. Since 2001, Marilyn has owned her law firm in Reno, Nevada, where she and her 9 female employees specifically represent men in divorce and family law battles. Marilyn chose her career because of her passion for children and relationships but most of all, Marilyn is driven to help underdogs. While the laws are improving for men, not all laws are yet gender equal and the interpretation and enforcement of those that are, have a long way to go. Despite her focus on representing men, Marilyn has a deep compassion for women in need as well. It isn't lost on Marilyn that women remain disadvantaged outside Family Court. She serves that need as Board President for a local housing program for homeless young women, Nevada Youth Empowerment Project, or NYEP. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
