"The Men's Project" at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Dr. Mary Albright will be teaching.

This is exciting news.
A six-week program offered at the University of Wisconsin-Madison aims to counter the effects of the societal expectation for men to be masculine.
The program centers on the premise that masculinity is primarily a societal construct rather than an intrinsic biological reality. Based on this premise, radical gender theorists argue that masculinity has a toxic influence on society.
The “Men’s Project” is a six-week program for male students that asks participants to reflect on the negative effects of the expectation to be masculine. A news release from the University of Wisconsin material claims that one of the goals is to “prevent future violence” from male students. - Original story here.

Dr. Dickie-Jo Solomon will be assisting Dr. Albright.


  1. Christ said that man does not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. He said that to Satan in the desert temptation and currently we
    ignore many words of God thanks to many biblical critics throughout the Catholic Biblical scholar community. Let's look at the word of God anyway:
    1 Corinthians 16:13Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)
    13 "Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, do manfully, and be strengthened."
    Vigiliter agite says the New Vulgate..."act manly.". Males to some degree have to
    achieve their gender. We often hear..."act like a man" but we rarely hear "act like a woman". That is...males can fail more easily to be men than women can fail to be women. Does it mean all men must become U.S. Special Forces soldiers and not
    become librarians? No. But it means the manly male librarian will be more likely than the unmanly male librarian to tell the town Mayor's wife that she is talking too loud in the library. I'm feeling verklempt....discuss among yourselves.

    1. Well expressed and written Bill. Doesn't gender differences make us more attractive to each other? God made us different for a reason. Right?

  2. OH BOY! I take that back. OH???? What is the gender neutral pronoun appropriate here? What about the French, Italian, Spanish and other Romance (probably a sexist term too!) that have those annoying la and le to denote masculine and feminine nouns. Not that could be a dissertation in itself. I happen to like being masculine thank you very muchI spent too much time, mostly on adolescence worrying about not being
    masculine enough. My faults had more to do with my sinful nature then my gender. My Govenor (positioning for a 2020 Presidential run is proposing free college for State U students. I'd say the course you describe is worth about that; nothing. Our world is just becoming a silly mess. Vanity of vanities and all is vanity.
