Some have said that the new program being offered by the University of Texas will treat masculinity as a mental health issue. Although the university denies that’s the case, they are housing the program in their Counseling and Mental Health Center, so you can see the confusion.
The MasculinUT program does not treat masculinity as a “mental health issue,” and any such statements are simply not accurate. It was established to bring more men to the table to address interpersonal violence, sexual assault and other issues.
Like other UT programs related to sexual assault and interpersonal violence, MasculinUT is housed administratively in the university’s Counseling and Mental Health Center. Its goals include helping men explore ways to reduce sexual violence, helping students take responsibility for their actions, and fostering healthier relationships on campus and beyond.
But others don’t think the University is being genuine, and based on the fact that many of these higher education facilities have safe spaces and “cry closets,” again, you can see the confusion. Being strong and confident and…well..masculine has become a concern for people. But only for the same people who think only whites can be racist.
The following video is probably going to be offensive to someone, so here’s your disclaimer: If you’re a snowflake, don’t watch this. (Right snowflakes are probably going to be OK watching this. There are no images of people kneeling while a flag is on a field, so they won’t have much to be offended by.)
Chad Prather didn’t hold back when discussing his concerns about the program.
According to The Washington Times, an ongoing mental health campaign at the University of Texas at Austin teaches young men that “masculinity” is “imposed” upon them in a way that unjustly rejects dresses, makeup, and manicures. The University of Texas at Austin’s Counseling and Mental Health Center has created a collection of posters that question traditional understandings of masculinity. One of the end goals is to “expand perceptions regarding what masculinity can look like on the UT campus and in society.” And they certainly looks like the school wants to classify “masculinity” as a mental disorder.
