Author, theology professor Owen Strachan says feminism, 'wokeness' behind cultural 'war on men'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Feminism and wokeness have accomplished nothing less than the destabilization of civilization.”

Owen Strachan isn’t mincing words when it comes to what he says is the dual-headed cultural assault on biblical masculinity.

Rather, for Strachan, a research professor of theology at Grace Bible Theology Seminary and author of The War on Men: Why Society Hates Them and Why We Need Them, the rise of “toxic masculinity” is actually symptomatic of larger threats.

“Feminism, paganism, and godless wokeness have attacked strong manhood relentlessly for decades now,” he told The Christian Post via email. “These evil ideologies have had a ferocious effect on the home, the church and society. They have weakened men to breaking point.

“If you weaken men, it turns out, you weaken everyone.”

Strachan says this war — a description cited both in the title and throughout the book — was started culturally with figures like the late radical feminist professor Mary Daly, who once said, “If life is to survive on this planet, there must be a decontamination of the Earth. I think this will be accompanied by an evolutionary process that will result in a drastic reduction of the population of males.”

He also cited a quote attributed to Robin Morgan, editor of Ms. Magazine: “I feel that ‘man-hating’ is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them.”

“In recent years, boys and men have been told they are ‘toxic’ over and over again. Being an aggressive or assertive man has meant that you are a practitioner of ‘toxic masculinity,’ a phrase that is everywhere today,” he said.

And while sin has undeniably corrupted both men and women, he added, “our culture has gone well beyond this mark. It reads strong men as the major problem confronting us today.

“As such, it has effectively declared war on men.”'
