Duke U.: Combating “Toxic Masculinity”


“Aiming to create a space of brotherhood fellowship dedicated to interrogating male privilege and patriarchy as it exists in our lives, our campus and our society.” – The Men’s Project, sponsored by the Duke Women’s Center

Rather than classically educating the mind and developing the character, Duke University has officially joined the academic cult of politically correct social engineering.

The estimated cost to attend North Carolina’s Duke University this year is $70,092. For all those greenbacks—some $280,000 for a 4-year degree—any male offspring can look forward to being demonized for inherent “toxic masculinities” due to his gender. To that end, The Men’s Project is creating a “safe space” so young men can, in essence, ‘make healthier choices while critiquing their own masculinity’—and fretting over their “male privilege.” Thus, by design, young men should feel deficient solely for the expression of their manliness? What complete hogwash!

College junior Dipro Bhowmik, of the 4-person student leadership team, informed the Duke Chronicle that the indoctrination concerns “questioning how you can be accountable to feminism, to the women in your life and to the larger community.” Excuse me, accountable to feminism? Why is it that modern feminism has been so radicalized that it cannot peacefully (and respectfully) coexist with men in their normal behavioral state?

Given the timing of this Orwellian initiative, one wonders is this some bizarre overreaction to the 10th anniversary Duke lacrosse scandal (in which three male students were falsely accused of rape)? Isn’t it long overdue for the powers that be at Duke University to stop artificially polarizing the student body on the basis of gender?

Looking to the archetype for angst-ridden young men, in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, it is famously written: “To thy known self be true.” The Bard’s time-honored advice is ignored by this self-hating generation in need of a serious reality check. They should ponder that in their “safe space.”

As a top-tier institution of higher learning, Duke University has the responsibility to serve its students far better in this matter. For the record, truth comes from self-acceptance, not a fascist motivation to manipulate the impressionable into that which is contrary to their given nature.
