Are Colleges Making Our Young Men Sick?

Trigger warning: Over at the College Fix, there is a disturbing article entitled “Students told term ‘be a man’ represents toxic masculinity”:

‘Lesson made it seem like masculinity was an unacceptable human trait’

Gettysburg College freshman James Goodman began his first moments of higher education by being lectured by campus leaders about “toxic masculinity,” he tells The College Fix in an interview.

Students who “identify as male” were shown a docudrama film about masculinity. The film, titled “The Mask You Live In,” was part of the lessons warning students that the notion of masculinity comes with harmful side effects, he said.

According to the trailer of the film, it teaches that the “three most destructive words” a boy can hear growing up is “be a man.” Experts quoted therein also suggest that violent outbursts are prompted by masculinity pressures because “respect is linked to violence.”

“They really buy into a culture that doesn’t value what we feminize,” says scholar Dr. Niobe Way in the trailer, continuing that people of both genders will “go crazy” under that construct….

“The entire movie and lesson made it seem like masculinity was an unacceptable human trait. That it’s something males should avoid. It was completely pointless. It did nothing to help anyone. I got absolutely nothing out of the experience, other than a headache,” Goodman said to The College Fix.


Colleges are toxic environments for young men these days and often they end up causing the men who identify as male nothing but a headache. This is psychological abuse of the worst sort because it is sanctioned by the schools as a way to punish any man who dares to assert his masculinity.

It’s no wonder more men are avoiding certain colleges and that these schools are turning into pink ghettos, filled with SJWs and the women who adore them. But even if women go further into debt trying to fund them, and men avoid them like the plague, these schools will not understand why there is a problem.
