    The most offensive thing you can do to a feminist is treat her with FULL equality.

    Whenever the word "masculinity" is used in the plural, you know you've got yourself an ideological feminist.

    Um...look at this:

    Within the past twenty five years, the new psychology of men has pioneered advancements in understanding and conceptualizing gender role expectations using the Gender Role Strain Paradigm. Gender ideology, an individual's internalization of cultural belief systems regarding gender role norms, is the core construct of the Gender Role Strain Paradigm. The aim of this article is to provide a comprehensive summary of findings from research on masculinity ideologies using the Male Role Norms Inventory (MRNI) conducted over the past 15 years. A review of data on the psychometric properties of the MRNI, along with cross-cultural and cross-national analyses will be presented, as will the relationship between traditional ideologies and other constructs. The article concludes with suggested directions for future research and practice using the MRNI.

    Are they saying that masculinity is a construct? As in, it's made up and taught to boys so they grow up behaving in a certain way and it has nothing to do with biology because if we weren't socialized that way we'd all be exactly the same??

    Gender roles are a social construct. But the problem with these courses is that they attempt to liberate women from gender roles, while consigning men to them. One such imposed gender role is that you just don't question feminism, because this would be an "unhealthy masculinity." If I want to be masculine, or feminine, or a hermit, or androgynous, or a robot -- I'll damn well do it, thank you very much. These courses exist to provide a foundation upon which certain gender roles can first be demonized, then legally restricted.

    I think Fred did a post about this on how blog a while ago. He said it'd probably be total horse shit, or something along those lines.
