You’ve got to be kidding me. What does society want? A nation of weenies?
The American Psychological Association (APA) has decided that traditional masculinity is harmful and potentially dangerous. That’s right. Tree choppers! Bead growers! Meat eaters! You’ve been warned! You’re a problem!
“The main thrust of the subsequent research is that traditional masculinity – marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression – is, on the whole, harmful,” reads the news release by the famed association.
It notes that research shows “traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful and that socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly.”
The entire report is 36-pages long.
“Traditional masculinity ideology has been shown to limit males’ psychological development, constrain their behavior, result in gender role strain and gender role conflict and negatively influence mental health and physical health,” the report states.
In other words, teaching boys how to be men should now be frowned upon. Back in the day, it was called proper parenting. These days, it’s “harmful.” Boys should be able to express themselves however they feel! There’s no right or wrong. It’s all subjective!
God created men and women differently. We’re equally valuable, but different. Each sex possesses unique attributes and abilities. We’re wired differently, and that’s not a bad thing. A boy’s natural tendencies– to be more masculine, rough and tough– shouldn’t be capped because “progressives” in today’s society suddenly determined that it’s damaging. We need more manly, God-fearing men in our country. Men who are humble enough to bow down and seek God first and stand up, work hard, lead their families and help others. We need men who take on responsibility with enthusiasm. We need men who love God, family and country.
What’s the saying? It’s better to build boys than mend men.
Bring back the traditional man.
