These days, it appears that being a man means you're crazy. You're a rapist waiting for a woman to rape. You're a misogynist, just looking for a woman to oppress. You're a brute, looking for a woman to punch in the face. You are violent, domineering, and angry.
At least according to the University of Texas at Austin.
They've rolled out a program called MasculinUT that treats men as though they are violent rapists just waiting for a woman on whom to force themselves. And, you know, slap around a little, because apparently, that is what men do. The project praises a poster of a black man with a flower crown, but mourns that masculinity "should go further than that."
This makes me curious about what "further than that" would look like. Curious in a morbid, car accident on the side of the road kind of way, where you want to see it but you don't want to see it all at the same time.
Outrage about the mental health aspect
The program is a project of the Counseling and Mental Health Center, and many media outlets immediately objected to this, stating that they were treating traditional masculinity as though it was a mental health issue. American Thinker and PJ Media both voiced their outrage.
In response, UT has rewritten their webpage about the MasculinUT program. (Emphasis mine)
