No Masculinity Allowed!

Last year, Brown University’s football team posted a 2-8 record, going 0-7 in conference play to finish dead last in the Ivy League. Brown lost 34-7 to Cornell and 53-0 to Princeton. The anemic quality of Brown’s football program is a testimony to the pathetic weakness and effeminacy of the school’s male students, and improvement seems unlikely:

Brown University is working to help its male students “unlearn” and “unpack” their masculinity.
A program at the Ivy League institution provides “safe spaces for men to unpack all of the things they have learned about masculinity and what it means to be a man,” according to its website.
“Rigid definitions of masculinity are toxic to men’s health,” campus officials state online under the heading: “Unlearning Toxic Masculinity.”
“Men will often resort to violence to resolve conflict because anger is the only emotion that they have been socialized to express,” the website states. “Unfortunately, the way that young men are conditioned to view sex and their need to be dominant and have power over others also contribute to instances of sexual assault and other forms of interpersonal violence on college campuses.”
To help combat that, the program promises to provide “safe spaces for men” to facilitate conversations to combat so-called toxic masculinity. . . .
PJ Media reported in April that at least eight students were hired to facilitate these workshops. . . .
“The goal is to help those socialized as men to unlearn some of the notions that have led to such profound harm being enacted toward others and toward themselves,” the program’s website states.

(Hat-tip: Instapundit.) Probably none of the “interpersonal violence” at Brown involved their football players learning to block or tackle.

Other universities have weight-training programs for their football players; Brown has an anti-masculinity program for theirs. It costs $67,439 a year (including room and board) to attend Brown, a “safe space” for wimps, where no masculinity is allowed on campus.
