UK: 800 Etonians in revolt after teacher is sacked for questioning radical feminist dogma on 'toxic masculinity'

Article here. Excerpt:

'It's said that the Battle of Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton. Two centuries later, Britain's most venerable school has become a battleground in the War on Woke.

On one side is English teacher Will Knowland, who was fired after standing up for his belief that students need to hear a broad range of opinions.

On the other is headmaster Simon Henderson, who sacked him for gross misconduct amid the fallout from a lecture about the nature of masculinity.
Mr Knowland's sin was to question the current radical feminist orthodoxy. In September, he created an online lecture called The Patriarchy Paradox examining the prevailing idea of 'toxic masculinity'.

In it, he argues that science and history offer evidence that masculine virtues such as strength and courage can be beneficial to women, the family and society.

A niche, knuckle-dragging opinion? Hardly. While it might be considered provocative to some, it is part of mainstream thinking. Mr Knowland believed Eton's boys had the right to balance in a curriculum he felt had become dangerously skewed.'
