Psychologists Declare Traditional Masculinity ‘Harmful’

Psychologists Declare Traditional Masculinity ‘Harmful’, by Susan Berry.

The American Psychological Association (APA) has released guidelines that teach psychologists working with men and boys that “traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful.” …

According to the APA announcement:

Men commit 90 percent of homicides in the United States and represent 77 percent of homicide victims. They’re the demographic group most at risk of being victimized by violent crime. They are 3.5 times more likely than women to die by suicide, and their life expectancy is 4.9 years shorter than women’s. Boys are far more likely to be diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder than girls, and they face harsher punishments in school—especially boys of color.

And one small group of men commit just over 50% of the homicides in the US — black men. What does the APA say about them? Are they ever more “harmful”, or are they just the victims of “harsher punishments at school”? Hmmm.

Everyone should be normal, like women. Like at school and in sexual mores, “good” is what girls do. Men are increasingly demonized as “toxic”. Hmmm.

If women are so superior, why we do we need affirmative action? Hmmm.

No one ever claimed PC fantasy world was consistent. (Except in transferring power and goodies to the politically correct.)
