University of North Carolina Continues Promoting Anti-Male Hate Propaganda

Posted on | September 19, 2017 | 1 Comment


Male students are a dwindling minority (42%) at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, a Democrat-controlled institution which selected former Dartmouth professor Carol Folt as its chancellor in 2013. That was the same year lesbian feminists Andrea Pino and Annie Clark joined three other UNC students in filing a federal Office for Civil Rights and Clery Act complaint against the university. Pino co-founded a non-profit, End Rape on Campus, but investigators have found no evidence to support her claim that she was raped twice by two different men at UNC.

Pino and Clark’s rape claims helped foster a climate of anti-male hysteria on the Chapel Hill campus, which has instituted a program to stigmatize men with accusations of “toxic masculinity” and “male privilege”:

The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill is hosting a discussion group to help men “shift the culture of masculinity toward more non-violent norms.”
The UNC Men’s Project, which launched in 2013, will host a 10-week discussion group this semester to “increase men’s involvement in gender equity and violence prevention,” and examine how masculinity has “contributed to the perpetration of violence in our society.”

(Who says “gender equity” and “violence prevention” are related? And why are North Carolina taxpayers expected to foot the bill for “discussion groups” based upon this dubious social-justice dogma?)

“Men commit the vast majority of violence, yet the vast majority of men neither commit nor condone violence,” the project argues. “And many men and boys are subjected to some form of violence at the hands of other men. How do we confront this issue?”

(With a pistol, perhaps?)

Participants will be tasked with holding workshops and events about masculinity on campus, such as the Campus Coffee Conversations program, which has previously hosted talks on issues such as masculinity, privilege, microaggressions, and trigger warnings.
At the end of the 10-week program, students are asked to create an individual “follow on” project by becoming a Peer Educator on masculinity, creating a short documentary film, joining a “gender equity” group on campus, or “developing a plan to increase bystander intervention practices.”

(Hat-tip: Instapundit.) All of this, you see, was prompted by two things:

  1. An unproven complaint by Andrea Pino and her comrades;
  2. The appointment of the university’s first female chancellor.

So here we have UNC engaged in an extraordinary effort to eradicate masculinity from the Chapel Hill campus, despite the fact that (a) male students are already a despised minority at UNC, and (b) the whole thing was inspired by a lesbian feminist whose claim of being a rape victim has been compared to Jackie Coakley’s notorious hoax at UVA.

This ongoing witch-hunt against male students at UNC is being conducted at taxpayer expense, in the name of “gender equity,” as if males at the school weren’t already outnumbered and disadvantaged. There are about 3,000 more female students than males enrolled at Chapel Hill, and yet the administration continues to insult UNC’s male students by accusing them of perpetrating “toxic masculinity” merely by being on campus. One wonders what UNC alumni think of Chancellor Folt turning their alma mater into a feminist indoctrination camp.

The main lesson UNC seems to be interested in teaching its students is how to hate each other, and of course, how to vote Democrat.
