Default University of Texas to Treat Masculinity as a 'Mental Health' Issue


So, when are we going to start treating femininity as a mental health issue?

From the University Web-page using the link given.

The MasculinUT program does not treat masculinity as a “mental health issue,” and any such statements are simply not accurate. It was established to bring more men to the table to address interpersonal violence, sexual assault and other issues.

Also this is from the articles site about page; https://pjmedia.com/about-us

We've been there through primaries and general elections; the U.S. border crisis; doctored climate change data; the gunrunners' scandal; Department of Justice voter fraud and the Ground Zero mosque -- stories that others in the media initially passed by.
It gives a picture into the style of reporting. But in the end they made a judgment call on a program that is not even up and running based on very little evidence. Placing what out of context quotes they could, the rest being more opinion braised 'fear mongering'.

Until someone actually reports what is going on. Like attending an actual program, or interviewing students and staff who have. I am going to file this away as more Click Bait.

Didn't you already post about this topic?


It IS a mental health issue though. Feeling like you have to act like a stereotype that is unhealthy is a mental health issue.

I'm lucky my boyfriend doesn't pander to this. He gets perceived as gay or female a good deal of the time because he's small in stature and hairless except for his head. Which has long hair. But he doesn't give a fuck and I love him the way he is
Great YouTube channel check it out!
