Walsh: Traditional Masculinity Isn’t The Problem. The Attempt To Dismantle Traditional Masculinity Is The Problem.

Article here. Excerpt:

'A recent article from CBS News, based on a soon-to-be-released CBS documentary, asks if there is “a better way to raise boys to avoid toxic masculinity?” The article details the trials and tribulations of parents who want to protect their sons from the horrors of traditional masculinity.
The main thrust of the piece is that boys in our culture are broken, and it’s our outdated and “disturbing” notions of masculinity that broke them.

This is all wrong.

The people interviewed for the article, along with the author herself, are perpetuating the very problem they say they want to solve. The real toxic thing is the attitude and approach they embody. Traditional masculinity is not at fault here. What’s at fault is the confused and contradictory attempt to dismantle it.'
