Vanderbilt Women’s Center to Lecture Men on ‘Healthy Masculinities’

Healthy Masculinities Week” hopes to encourage men to “[e]xplore healthy masculinity through various lenses,” such as “American society, the gay and bisexual community, fraternities, and more.”

The first event as part of the “Healthy Masculinities Week” is called, “The Macho Paradox: Why some men hurt and how all men can help.” The title is a reference to a book by Jackson Katz, who is a self-proclaimed “anti-sexist activist” and the speaker for the event.

The full title for Katz’s book is, “The Macho Paradox: Why Some Men Hurt Women and How All Men Can Help.” It is unclear why the word “Women” was removed from Vanderbilt’s event listing.

Women academics telling 18 year old men how to be masculine?

We used to teach them how to be Gentlemen, a wholly different thing. But that would mean also teaching women how to be Ladies. Can’t have that of course.
