How to Turn Your Son into a MAGA Hat-Wearing Alpha Male (When You Didn't Mean To)
It's the worst nightmare for a "progressive" parent who loves Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton and obsesses over "rape culture." Imagine a woman who spends her entire life trying to mold sons into good feminists who toe the party line, get girls to sign "enthusiastic consent forms" before getting that first kiss, and who generally act like chicks — imagine that mother getting rewarded with two Kekistani converts (wearing MAGA caps). That's the fresh hell that Washington Post blogger Jody Allard finds herself in after trying in vain to raise pajama-wearing, testosterone-deficient, gender-fluid feminists.
How did this happen to a good leftist like Allard? Maybe it's because she publishes things like this about her own sons in the Washington Post.
I never imagined I would raise boys who would become men like these. Men who deny rape culture, or who turn a blind eye to sexism. Men who tell me I’m being too sensitive or that I don’t understand what teenage boys are like....They don’t call each other out when they make sexist jokes or objectify women. It’s too uncomfortable to separate themselves from the pack so they continue to at least dip their toes into toxic masculinity...My sons who hate hearing about their own privilege nestle inside it like a blanket and accuse me of making up its existence. My sons are part of the problem.
Why is the Washington Post allowing this to be done to minor children, one of which suffers from depression?
Imagine what it must feel like to know if you ever end up in court your own mother is going to testify for the prosecution! When your own mom views your natural masculinity as "toxic," it's probably not going to foster a tight relationship or respect for her dearly held belief system. It's sad to imagine teen boys in that terribly awkward time trying to figure out who they are and what their passion is while this woman is flogging them in the newspaper for the sins of rapists (even though they never raped anyone). Lady, high school is hard enough. Maybe you should refrain from blaming the world's ills on your own flesh and blood. But that's just me.
It gets worse. It appears that Allard wrote an article several years ago claiming one of her sons was suicidal and yet she continues to write about him as being culpable for rape culture. She's done it again in a new article titled, "I'm Done Pretending Men are Safe (Even My Own Sons)":
Allard admits that her sons are angry with her for writing about them through her rape-culture lenses.
My essay went semi-viral, and for the first time my sons encountered my words about them on their friends’ phones, their teachers’ computers, and even overheard them discussed by strangers on a crowded metro bus. It was one thing to agree to be written about in relative obscurity, and quite another thing to have my words intrude on their daily lives. One of my sons was hurt by my words, although he’s never told me so. He doesn’t understand why I lumped him and his brother together in my essay...He is angry at me now, although he won’t admit that either, and his anger led him to conservative websites and YouTube channels; places where he can surround himself with righteous indignation against feminists, and tell himself it’s ungrateful women like me who are the problem.
