Male college students to undergo ‘critical self-reflection’ of masculinity

Article here. Excerpt:

'The University of Wisconsin-Madison is currently taking applications for its “Men’s Project,” a six-week program that aims to counter the alleged harmful effects of society’s masculinity paradigms and pressures and empower participants to promote “gender equity.”

“Men’s Project creates a space for critical self-reflection and dialogue about what it means to be a man and how masculinity impacts us and those around us,” organizers state in promoting the effort.

“The experience focuses on the examination of societal images, expectations, and messages around masculinity to empower men to better understand themselves, promote the advancement of gender equity, and raise consciousness in their communities,” organizers add.'

"Gender Equity"

I wonder if they mean actual gender equity, or just the kind that benefits women and only women.

That's the feminist definition

For a feminist, "gender equity" means "whatever benefits the woman."

For a feminist, men have no valid rights to fairness and true equity--only women have those rights, so only the woman's side of the equation should be considered.

Why, everybody's in favor of "gender equity," if that means treating BOTH sexes fairly--and by "both" I mean the man and the woman.

Feminists are actually the exception--they think only one side, the female side, should be treated fairly. The other side, not so much.
