Finally, men at the University of Regina In Canada can seek absolution for their grave sins of toxic masculinity.
This is not a joke.
In a Catholic Church type of confessional booth, students are asked to confess their sins of “hypermasculinity” as part of the university’s week-long “Man Up Against Violence” program. The program’s site suggests female students can confess their sins of “hypermasculinity,” as well:
The traveling Confessions of Masculinity Booth will be there ! We have all reinforced hypermasculinity one way or another regardless of our gender!! …Come and share your sins so we can begin to discuss how to identify and change our ways !!!
The “Man Up” campaign, which commenced on Monday and ends on Friday, will apparently “challenge mindsets and behaviors with regard to the social construction of masculinity and its relationship with violence,” says the site. “We work together to bring light to the causes of all types of violence related to gender, race, socio-economic status, ability level and beyond.”
In other words, the intentions might be good, and the name of the program might sound nice, but the focus on scrubbing masculinity from society is just another progressive step toward a genderless world. Instead of denouncing all actual violent acts and those particular men (and women) who engage in such acts, the university is attacking masculinity in general, with the “hypermasculinity” cover.
It is unclear if fellow students or an actual Social Justice Priest will be on the other end of the confessional, but we’re suspecting penance for masculine behavior will involve some sort of male-bashing tutorial session taught by a naked Lena Dunham, whom you WILL find attractive, you sexist.
The “traveling Confessions of Masculinity Booth” will be available on Thursday.
