‘Traditional masculinity’ deemed harmful, could lead to sexual harassment, medical group says

Fox News

It’s all your fault, men.

For the first time in its history, the American Psychological Association (APA) released guidelines concerning men and boys, saying that so-called “traditional masculinity” not only is “harmful” but also could lead to homophobia and sexual harassment.

“The main thrust of the subsequent research is that traditional masculinity – marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression – is, on the whole, harmful,” reads the news release by the famed association.  

It notes that research shows “traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful and that socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly.”

The 36-page document goes on to coin “masculinity ideology,” which stems from traditional masculinity, and claims that it harms boys and men.

“Traditional masculinity ideology has been shown to limit males’ psychological development, constrain their behavior, result in gender role strain and gender role conflict and negatively influence mental health and physical health,” the report warns.

The “masculinity ideology” is defined by the APA as “a particular constellation of standards that have held sway over large segments of the population, including: anti-femininity, achievement, eschewal of the appearance of weakness, and adventure, risk, and violence.”

The research goes on to suggest that masculine boys may put their energy toward disruptive behaviors such as homophobia, bullying and even sexual harassment rather than strive for academic excellence.

“Though men benefit from patriarchy, they are also impinged upon by patriarchy,” said Ronald F. Levant, EdD, a professor emeritus of psychology at the University of Akron and co-editor of the APA volume “The Psychology of Men and Masculinities.”

The new paper also advises clinicians how to address the problems of their own bias when treating boys and men, and urges to address how “power, privilege, and sexism work both by conferring benefits to men and by trapping them in narrow roles.”

    The weakening of males continues. Even women have more balls than what this cultural Marxism is trying to turn men into. Destruction of society from within.

      True story, Jamal…several years ago when my daughter was a Girl Scout Camp counselor she and the other counselors went to the nearby Boy Scout Camp so the counselors at both camps put on a set of skits. Come to find out the skits the Boy Scouts put on were even more “feminist” than the ones the Girl Scouts put on! The Boy Scouts have been “feminized” since roughly 2010. When my brother was a Boy Scout in the 60s they did mountain climbing, hiking, camping out making bows and arrows, tracking bear tracks,etc. in upstate NY. Nowadays the Boy Scouts can’t even hike their own 100-year-old Boy Scout trail! In the 1980s me and my hubby climbed a small mountain nearby the camp and saw Boy Scouts climbing it. Not these days.

  7. DL. says:

    Thank you, God, that my husband is a manly man!

    Now, as for the APA and their DSM bullcrap (and I actually have the DSM-3R and DSM-4 in my house since I am a certified counselor)…the DSM 3-R lists homosexuality as a disorder; the DSM-4 does NOT. The DSM-4 came out in either 1992 or 1993. (DSM stands for the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders). The DSM-5 (about 15 years old) lists LGBT type stuff as almost normal. Will the DSM-6 list being a male as a disorder? Because girly men are, to me…pathetic…I have no use for them (and I’m damned glad I never really went into psychology!

    It has also been shown to be effective when it comes to wiping out wimpy, big-mouthed girlie men like the stinking jews, whose only REAL means of survival is DECEPTION & LIES.

    They cannot abide what THEY’VE never had … TRUE MASCULINITY.

    FAGS!!!

      Truth, #1. Sometimes brutal violence or aggression is what is necessary to stop the attack on something that is not an affront on anything, but is the choice target of the attacker, because it stands in the way of the aggressor. So be it, it must be smashed by the victim through brutal and violent force. Not how I wanted to play, but cool with it either way. It’s justified because their ground rules stated I can only stop them by terminating them altogether. So be it. Your rules, it is. I am more than happy to fulfill their wishes. Death to the zionist nwo joos.

      • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

        There is only one way to effectively deal with true psychopaths, Martist… they HAVE to be exterminated.

        I’m in favor of parachuting them one by one onto that island that that Christian missionary just got shot full of arrows on a few weeks ago.

        They definitely don’t like outsiders there. 🙂
