KATHERINE BYRON, a senior at Brown University and a member of its Sexual Assault Task Force, considers it her duty to make Brown a safe place for rape victims, free from anything that might prompt memories of trauma.

How so? This course is unfair towards men, yet I understand as to how Brown is trying to make their grounds a safer place. I understand the intentions behind the course, as stereotypical, and unjust as it is, towards your average, male, Brown, student.

It is a necessity to have these courses! Considering the number of rapes, and molestation's, that occur on campuses, the students need to be aware. Both sexes need to be aware, and start considering these events to be incredibly serious.

It is a bit drastic, and I believe that it warps the view of gender even more. This will not educate gender equality or safety, it will teach hatred towards men in a classroom.

Men will frequently turn to brutality to determine struggle since outrage is the main feeling that they have been associated to express. Sadly, the way that young fellows are molded to view sex and their should be predominant and have control over others likewise add to cases of rape and different types of interpersonal brutality on school grounds.

Are these posts about news, or the result of some brainstorming session by the production team where topics most likely to stir people up are generated? Now unfollowing.

entitlement, homophobia and sexual aggressiveness — can harm women and families and cripple men's own health. So Islam media?

I hate meta grouping of people and metanarrative approaches to the world. I'm male. I hate everybody equally. I think our species is toxic...so the more boxes made for groups of people the more it makes me share my comfortable solitary box with plebs. Eat popcorn, be a misanthrope and watch the pointless freak show called the human race with a smile. We will soon all be dead, there is no point to it all...so smoke it. Micro narratives. Please.

It appears according to the world only men are toxic and must jump through hoops to please the feminist brigade. What are women going to do in return? It appears that society expects men to do all the changing. I've met far more toxic women in my time than men but no one is talking about toxic femininity that starts in the playground.

All these feminists want men to be homos. We are not, we are men, suck it up buttercup, we ain't going away. I'm already teaching my two sons to not apologise for anything and be men without shame. Love women, treat them with respect, be loyal but! Don't let any angry privileged woman tell you what you should be.

We live in a culture where people are force fed how to act. Moreover nobody 'knows themselves'. So watching movies and tv which reinforces how men are supposed to behave in addition to intergenerational dysfunction doesn't really help. You can thank the govt and education system for these problems. Ayahuasca is great to find yourself in addition to many other entheogens.

Taking way too many of these ideas without their requisite truckloads of salt, media."Entitlement" is feminist code for believing that you, too, as a man, are equal, and that equality does not mean female supremacy. Typically, where unwarranted entitlement is accused, it's actually being projected. Homophobia is a female behaviour as well. Trying to frame that as somehow a male thing (save males being the victims of it) is transparently motivated by sexism. Sexual aggressiveness is the closest we get to a real problem -and the issue of anyone harming anyone sexually is something our society handles quite well already (myriad of laws and social customs extant to protect people to the degree that's possible). However, this has to be differentiated from what we might call sexual assertiveness, which is simply the only way a male succeeds sexually. Sexual assertiveness is a fundamental human right that cannot be threatened. This distinction is not recognized or acknowledged by feminism, and results in a lot of people disagreeing where they might otherwise not. Equality means for everyone, folks. Men in our culture are doing the greatest moral job that a demographic cohort has ever done on Earth, save perhaps those women which cared for their families more than their egos and hedonistic impulses, but they seem to have died out. Trying to deny that is tantamount to extortion and violence. The whole problem is one of female gratitude, that's it.

The problem with this concept is that the idea of toxicity could easily be applied to elements of feminine behaviour, especially in its more radical feminist expressions. How about we all agree to call radical feminism:"Toxic Femininity"?

Around 40 years ago. She(Juanita Broaddrick) raped by Bill Clinton. And you should to know the lawsuit about rape, perhaps the victim can accept to each other. And can canceled that lawsuit totally. You know or? But the true is the true.

The people writing these sorts of articles for media are clearly amazingly out of touch with the general public sentiments. They are so absorbed into group identity based worldviews that they are incapable of understanding people who view the world differently. They just assume everyone else must be obssesed with group identity like they are.

This war on masculinity will only backfire, wrote one commenter."Men built the roads, cars, buildings, elevators, stairs. We might go on strike. Build your own stuff." Well that's a perfect example of toxic masculinity... there are plenty of women who can"build our stuff" actually.

If you keep perpetuating the myth that feminism is a war on men then yeah, its going to backfire. Feminism is inclusive of men and needs them to take as much responsibility as women do
