Masculinity overdue for a reckoning after mass shootings, child advocates say

Thats it! Emasculate little boys MORE than you already have. I argue a LACK of masculinity in the lives of these mass shooters is more likely to be the issue rather than a lack of femininity. These people are sick, they're always digging for the answers they want and not what the truth actually might be.


LINK



quote:

Days after the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, staffers at Men as Peacemakers, a Minnesota group that works with students to break down gender stereotypes and reduce violence, checked in with participants to see how they were feeling.


Men As Peacemakers Website


quote:

Men As Peacemakers (MAP) is building safe communities through programs that address and undermine the root causes of violence against women and children including sexism, male dominance, racism, homophobia, and transphobia. MAP is at the forefront of a movement to promote equality and end violence against women and children. MAP engages individuals and communities in Minnesota and beyond, by mobilizing existing community resources and developing innovative primary prevention and restorative justice strategies that are proven to significantly reduce and repair the harm caused by men.




ARTICLE CONTINUES...


quote:

As civic leaders and politicians look for ways to stop mass shootings, advocates across the country from organizations like Men as Peacemakers say their work is vital to overcoming the toxic masculinity that research has found to be at the root of many mass shootings and other acts of violence perpetrated by men.



How can anyone even measure "toxic masculinity"?


quote:

Although research indicates many factors contribute to a man’s decision to carry out a mass shooting, including his access to guns, his psychological makeup, personal grievances and extremist views, studies also show that conceptions of masculinity encouraging violence and social dominance are large motivators.



Notice theres absolutely NOTHING said about family/father figure in the household? These people dont want answers.


quote:

“White heterosexual male entitlement fuses with downward mobility, subordinated masculinity, and other disappointing life course events” to lead mass shooters to carry out their attacks in an attempt to regain a sense of dominance after feeling socially outcast, the authors of a 2014 study published in the journal Men and Masculinities wrote.



quote:

Weekly sessions usually start with check-ins where students are asked to use an emoji chart illustrated with faces expressing two dozen emotions to help them describe how they feel.



quote:

Leaders often discuss with students how “performative masculinity” manifests in pop culture and politics, such as Will Smith’s slap of Chris Rock at the Oscars and Russian President Vladimir Putin waging war on Ukraine, said program manager Jordan Hebert.






Just reading through the websites of these groups contained within the article it appears their goal is to feminize men and boys. Maybe this explains part of the massive push towards transgenderism? I don't think these people have a clue what they're doing.


I believe the US is far too gynocentric and our intelligentsia are in complete denial.

Telling men they're inherently bad, and should completely go to war with their very nature, is contributing to the instability of young men in America.

You know who could use some more masculinity? Those pussy cops that cowered outside and in the hallway.

Exactly. These people are lunatics and they're fricking kids up even more than they are when they come into their "programs". Notice nothing has got better over the years? How is it that males are more emasculated than ever yet somehow more out of control and troubled than ever?

These idiotic gender theorists are destroying this country and the stupid billionaires pouring money into it as tax write-offs are even worse.

Masculinity declining is precisely the reason society is becoming destabilized.

I’m not some PR specialist, but I feel like you shouldn’t have the same acronym for the “non-mean way” to say pedophile.

I mean, unless it’s a bunch of pedophiles in the organization…. In which…. I guess it makes perfect sense.

Oh…. Yeah it makes sense.

Completely true.

The entire “incel” situation is going to worsen.

Society continues to tell men that their very nature is wrong and that their existence is the root of all ills.

That doesn’t even address the male/female relationship issues and sexual repression that is occurring.

But, let’s just continue down the same pathway.

We are really good at that.

Masculinity is the problem?

A dude that liked to wear womens clothes shot up Uvalde.

Doesn't add up.

That shooter was a cowardly piece of shite who intentionally targeted the weak and the vulnerable, using a highly powerful weapon against the entirely unarmed…

There is nothing “masculine” about him. Telling young boys and young men that this is what masculinity looks like is absolutely disgusting. These shooters are weak fricking cowards, NOT masculine men.

actually the lack of masculinity is the problem, as in actual Father’s in the home.

There’s no question. Any of these mass shooters come from a traditional household with a loving father figure? Any of them on the football/baseball team? Have a long term girlfriend?

Didn’t think so.

Toxic masculinity is not a real thing and anyone who says different is just outing themselves as an idiot.

The lack of true FATHERS and REAL MEN in these kids lives is the problem. Eliminating them from children’s lives is what caused the problems.

Evil doubles down on evil.


You know, when I say that, I obviously don’t mean to imply that being a real man equates to being a brut. It simply means being the leader of the household, which was surrendered to women by some, or abandoned completely by not being there, or not setting a responsible Godly example when they are there, or by chasing success in business, but not in their own household.


The attack on men by liberals is the very reason for the condition in the first place. They can’t allow themselves to admit to that, because that would mean there are serious holes in their idealogy, but it is the very reason for the destruction of the American family, and why we have so many lost humans out there.


We absolutely will NOT get to fixing that until we first admit where the problem is, and understand that there is a role for both men and women to fill in a family, and that is the most important of all roles that both men and women have to fill in this world of ours.

But I suppose first things first. First we have to try and impart this basic knowledge to a people who can’t differentiate between a male and a female. That’s asking a lot.

I would argue to say more “toxic” masculinity is needed in this world.
