Brown?s program is part of a growing trend on campuses to address ?toxic masculinity,? a term generally defined as elements of masculinity that encourage dominance and prevent men from showing emotion.
Meanwhile, Colorado Children's Hospital has stopped designating the sex of child patients, in order to be compassionate for all the trans and non-binary children (since there's SO many little kids who are offended by being called "boy" or "girl").

This whole thing is going to boil down to a She said, he said. Unfortunately since she hasn't and wont submit and corroborative evidence the damage is already done to him with no hint of due process. Is this what America has become?
It's a parenting problem. IMHO, it's because parents, nowadays, have been taught that whipping a kid is bad. On the cotrsry, if nothing tangible bad happens to the kid, when they get to college, or the real world, there is a different set of rules. Stuff does happen to you when you do bad things.
I see no problem teaching young men how to be a gentleman, to curb sexual urges in all situations, that "no means no", stronger is not necessarily better, women are not sex objects, that it's okay to be sensitive, and have feelings show...to put down the toilet seat and pick up their sox (j/k with the last two, sort of) . If these values aren't taught or learned at home then by all means, address them in school. Schools usually takes up the slack on all things that aren't taught at home.
Its a matter of perspective. Men may have a different perspective on what that means than a woman. I assume your perspective is that of a woman. That doesn't automatically mean its the only perspective. If, it means do not act on your sexual urges in an ungentlemanly way, then I would agree.
Well, yes, if taken in context of my entire post then your assumptions would be correct. If you decide to read between the lines and put words into my mouths, then your prospective would be wrong. This was posted as no cause for discourse, only an opinion as with most posts here.
They need to ask Bill Cosby, Henry Weinstein, Chris Watt, Roger Ailes, Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose and the other 219 men who have resigned in the last 2 years or been fired for their actions. Go straight to the source.
Define sexual aggressiveness? What does that mean? If it means physical aggressiveness you'll get no argument from me. My concern is that term is extrapolated into many other areas of the male experience.
One is the definition of "toxic masculinity" All I see is general attributes which seem to get extrapolated into many other areas. The whole term connotes that being masculine is toxic.
The other term is aggressiveness. I'm not talking about physical aggression towards another person for sex. I'm talking about aggressiveness in defense of a woman a child or the nation or the home. What kind of men do you want?
Also, those very attributes of aggressiveness in other areas, such as business, politics, sports, etc. can determine success and power which, lets face it, attracts women.
I'll say it once again, young men should be taught to act as gentlemen. But should not be taught that being male is somehow toxic.
My comment was more about the term aggressive and toxic. Thy don't seem to have limits n the definition of aggressive, so therefore, it means anything anyone wants it to mean. Its a bit like bullying and assault rifle.
