University of Houston-Clear Lake Hosts ‘Toxic Masculinity’ Event

“negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity”

It’s fun to imagine how ‘toxic feminism’ events would be received on college campuses.

Texas university: ‘Toxic masculinity’ ‘plagues’ society

The University of Houston-Clear Lake’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion hosted a “toxic masculinity” event on Wednesday.

The event, titled, “MASC: A Hidden Identity” featured a screening of the documentary, “The Mask You Live In,” followed by a discussion, according to a flyer obtained by Campus Reform.

“The Mask You Live In,” directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, wife of Calif. Democrat Governor-Elect, Gavin Newsom, “follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity.”

The film claims that American boys are more likely than American girls to commit suicide, crime, flunk out of school, etc., but also hits on toxic masculinity by featuring former professional football player Joe Ehrmann, who claims that he played football to exemplify “hypermasculinity” he felt compelled to show, according to Variety. The film also insinuates that most mass shooters are male and consists of interviewees discussing difficult relationships with their fathers.

Common Sense Media, whose founder, Jim Steyer, is featured in the film, is a non-profit organization that promotes safe technology and media for children. When reviewing the documentary, the nonprofit indicated that viewers can “expect frank discussion (and sometimes-graphic montage footage) related to sexuality, homophobia, sexism, pornography, abuse, suicide, and rape, as well as many clips that show young men (and women) drinking and taking drugs to the point of being completely wasted. There’s also lots of strong language, including ‘f–k,’ ‘s–t,’ and many of the sexually charged slurs boys and men use to denigrate one another’s masculinity.”
