By now you’ve probably heard that the University of Tennessee is asking their students to use “gender neutral pronouns such as ‘ze'”. . . in order to create a more inclusive campus.”  There were a bunch of other recommendations as well that I don’t have the stomach to look up right now such as “xe”, “xir” and other ridiculousness (while googling an article for this post, the UT webpage has been removed and it looks like they have let this go).

Vanderbilt University is now joining the fun.  Only this one won’t be so easily mocked because it is far more mainstream (H/T – Alpha Game).

Vanderbilt University’s Women’s Center will be hosting a week-long event dedicated to lecturing men about what it means to have “healthy masculinity.”

The “Healthy Masculinities Week” is sponsored by Vanderbilt’s Margaret Cuninggim Women’s Center, which claims to be devoted to “Celebrating Women” while “Empowering All.”

The mission of the Women’s Center is to affirm a “space for all members of the Vanderbilt community that acknowledges and actively resists sexism, racism, homophobia, and all forms of oppression while advocating for positive social change.”

The “core values” of the Women’s Center includes the idea that, “progress toward gender equality calls all of us to be champions for change” while simultaneously claiming to “celebrate the unique differences among all persons and work to build community in diversity.”

“Healthy Masculinities Week” hopes to encourage men to “[e]xplore healthy masculinity through various lenses,” such as “American society, the gay and bisexual community, fraternities, and more.”

Allow me to translate – We desire to control the men because we are afraid of you.  We’re not really all that afraid you’re going to hurt us, but we know that if you start to think for yourselves, you will supplant us.  So, we will define masculinity for you.  What we propose won’t actually arose us or even attract us, but it will leave you waiting for us when, at around 30-35, we are ready to marry “A good man”.  So, because we know you want to sleep with us, we will tell you what we want you to be when we actually want you to impregnate us and provide for us.  You will listen because sex.  

That’s basically it in a nutshell.  To be sure, many of these women don’t consciously think what I’ve written out above.  It’s there, but they won’t allow themselves to think about it too much because it is still somewhat shameful to say aloud.  However, to be perfectly clear, due to peak hypergamy more and more feminists are willing to think in a far clearer manner about this and to put voice to it.  It’ll only continue to be more vocalized as it becomes more acceptable to admit it.

Women have been attempting to define masculinity, likely since the beginning.  In the last few decades we have succeeded.  Men and women are suffering because of it.  Women aren’t going to stop trying to tell you men what we think we want.  Hopefully it is obvious by now that we are terrible at this and you men must define it for yourselves and not fear doing so.  As a group, we will use this fear (and desire for sex) against you in one manner or another, consciously or not.

By the way, one of the sponsors of the event is the Office of LGBTQI Life. I wondered when the number pf letters would get longer.  It was only a matter of time.

And if anyone is thinking of Black Knighting anything like this in the future, will this Open Code of Conduct has you covered (H/T Vox Popoli).

Our open source community prioritizes marginalized people’s safety over privileged people’s comfort. We will not act on complaints regarding:

~‘Reverse’ -isms, including ‘reverse racism,’ ‘reverse sexism,’ and ‘cisphobia’

~Reasonable communication of boundaries, such as “leave me alone,” “go away,” or “I’m not discussing this with you”

~Refusal to explain or debate social justice concepts

~Communicating in a ‘tone’ you don’t find congenial

~Criticizing racist, sexist, cissexist, or otherwise oppressive behavior or assumptions

Thank goodness creativity is on our side because the SJW’s aren’t even bothering to try to hide their thought policing any more.
