Default Toxic masculinity: American Psychological Association says it’s bad to be a man

Toxic masculinity: American Psychological Association says it’s bad to be a man

Attention boys: bullying, homophobia, sexual harassment and abuse are all your fault, according to new guidelines published by the world’s largest association of psychologists.

While traditional gender roles – under which men are stoic, competitive, dominant and aggressive – have existed for millennia, the rise of social justice culture has seen a new phrase popularized in recent years: toxic masculinity.

This idea, that traditional male traits are ‘toxic’ and dangerous, has largely remained confined to feminist blogs and social sciences faculties, but now the American Psychological Association (APA) has jumped on board.

In the APA’s “first ever” set of guidelines to help psychologists work with men and boys, the association states that “traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful,” and “causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly.”

But what is ‘traditional masculinity’ anyway? The APA says traditional masculinity is defined by “stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression.” It’s found in men’s resilience in the face of adversity and insistence on “looking tough” despite mental suffering, and in their tendency to handle emotional strain with anger.

According to the APA, “traditional masculinity ideology has been shown to limit males’ psychological development, constrain their behavior, result in gender role strain and gender role conflict and negatively influence mental health and physical health.”

The association blames this masculinity for the fact that 90 percent of homicides in the US are committed by men, and for the fact that men are over three times more likely to die from suicide than women. Boys are also far more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than girls, and suffer harsher punishments for misbehaving in school.

As such, the APA is instructing psychiatrists to change how they talk to their male patients. Clinicians, the association says, must be aware of and challenge “dominant masculine ideals,” and “combat these forces.”

Furthermore, in a nod to the social justice warrior (SJW) movement, they must “understand how power, privilege and sexism work” to both benefit and harm men.

“If we can change men,” Dr. Ryon McDermott, a psychologist who helped draft the guidelines wrote, “we can change the world.”

But do men need to be changed? Some psychologists think not.

Dr. Jordan Peterson, a Canadian psychologist and professor who has emerged as a leading voice against the SJW movement, has said that the societal “backlash” against masculinity is a futile attempt to change inherent differences in the sexes.

There are biological differences between men and women that express themselves in temperament and in occupational choice,” Peterson argued. “And that any attempt to enforce equality of outcomes is unwarranted and ill advised as a consequence.

While there are mountains of research for and against biological gender differences, the APA’s guidelines are noteworthy because the association is the largest psychiatric organization in the world and is often at the forefront of changing the worldwide psychological consensus.

The association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is the go-to guide for clinicians, researchers and policymakers around the world.

The association was one of the first such groups to stop considering transgenderism as a mental illness, with the publication of its fifth DSM in 2013, clearing the way for a raft of pro-trans policies, like President Obama’s decision to open the military up to transgender recruits in 2016.

Shifts in society’s perception of gender have influenced the latest set of guidelines too. “What is gender in the 2010s,” McDermott wrote in the guidelines. “It’s no longer just this male-female binary.”

On Twitter, commentators disagree wholeheartedly. “They are taking the wrong stance on men, also due to politics,” one psychologist wrote.

So absurd.

Psychology is constantly proving to be nothing more than Marxist pseudo-science.

Is 'Ryon' a normal name or another brainless variation? A lot of those in the US, and not only amongst nigger subset of American hominids.

Psychology and psychiatry are fields filled chock a block with kikes. Now going full speed with feminazi bull shit.

Probably want us all on psychotropic drugs and lopping off our organs to be trannies.

Whites are being domesticated into cuck-consumers. Pet culture is part of this.

Jews aren't satisfied with being the dominant race, they must groom the genes and the psychological conditioning of all possible competitors.

The group that used to say homosexuality was a disorder now says masculinity is a disorder.

no it's typical retarded misspelling. another is ryen, a la ryen russillo, a sports talk guy

these fucking stupid broads (it's women who come up with these dumb names) think to individuate themselves by deliberate misspellings they think are cool and unique

"Toxic Masculinity" includes any guy who doesn't talk with a Valley accent. I don't and I've actually encountered chicks (and snowflake males) scared of me once I say anything.

What's interesting (sorry I don't have the exact numbers here) is that these days, available veterinary school slots are 1/3 the number of qualified applications they get; medical schools now have more slots open each year than there are qualified applicants (which they must fill anyway or they lose federal and state funding).

Medical billing is regulated. Veterinarians (and dentists) can charge whatever they please.

It's disgusting to see grown men talking like 14 year-old girls and using all of the nauseating buzz words and phrases and political correctness polluting speech today. Usually I mock them every time I encounter one. Check out the 'Words White men should never use' thread.

toxic masculinity is a scam concept like racism, it hides the nature of the attack. the problem is masculinity itself. there is no effeminized masculinity, that isn't masculinity at all. what they are calling "toxic masculinity" is simply masculinity - which they don't like. it's the same pattern as racism. it sounds like they are against this or that bad attitude or behavior, but they're actually against 1) people (other than (((them)))) taking note of race at all, and 2) hating a specific race - as the claim is only ever made against one race. is it bad to believe race exists? is it bad to believe race matters? is it bad to protect a race against others threatening it? no to all three. but 'racism' is coined and applied to make it so, while hiding the jew-animus i call loxism behind a veil of neutrality.

masculinity is salubrious. it created the society we all benefit from. if sometimes men are brutal or insufficiently sensitive, oh well, that's the cost of doing business

'Toxic masculinity' is the new 'Authoritarian personality' but empowered by the influence feminism has had on Western society.

Just as "they" forbid what's good for you racially, they forbid what's good for you sexually.

It really is a sickening and hideous watch, over my life, the jews moving point by point in a systematized, programmatic destruction of our race's culture, and then the race itself.

It bears thinking why they don't just promote 'masculinism' as parallel to racism. Perhaps because they have promoted feminism as the good. People havent accepted feminism, they have swallowed its lies and program while rejecting the term itself. Perhaps that's true with racism too.

'Sexism' is in many ways used the way 'masculinist' would be. It is never used in the case of men being 'sexualized', only with regards to women.

that's true. maybe. they're trying to completely do away whites. and males. and white-male masculinity. so that it's illegitimate to be masculine. and white. and doubly white and masculine. and this is reflected all through their media.

in porn, they like to put a white blonde girl with multiple nigger males

AND

they also do this on many NFL talk shows. have a white-blonde-female host and multiple nigger athlete-cum-commentator panels

everything picks up and dovetails everything else

it's quite comprehensive
