UW-Madison quietly shelves controversial masculinity program

Article here. Excerpt:

'The University of Wisconsin-Madison has disbanded a program to educate “men-identified students” about the harm caused by traditional notions of masculinity.

In January, Campus Reform reported on the school’s Men’s Project, which aimed to “explore masculinity and the problems accompanied by simplified definitions of it” and to “create a sense of security in vulnerability” among male students.'

I think I know why discussing masculinity is so hard

I think it defies discussion bc masculinity is something you DO. Talking about it never quite seems to do it justice.

There's riding a bike, then talking about riding a bike. You'll never know what riding a bike is like until you do it. Same idea.
