American Psychological Association decrees Manhood a Mental Disorder


 

They went and finally did it. The APA now supports the gelding of the male specie. They were working up to it. The data used to support the violent male is suspect. Either way, castrating American males will ensure the end to Western civilization.

 

The American Psychological Association has declared that manhood is a mental disorder.

For the first time ever, APA is releasing guidelines to help psychologists work with men and boys.

At first blush, this may seem unnecessary. For decades, psychology focused on men (particularly white men), to the exclusion of all others. And men still dominate professionally and politically: As of 2018, 95.2 percent of chief operating officers at Fortune 500 companies were men. According to a 2017 analysis by Fortune, in 16 of the top companies, 80 percent of all high-ranking executives were male. Meanwhile, the 115th Congress, which began in 2017, was 81 percent male.

APA’s new Guidelines for Psychological Practice With Boys and Men strive to recognize and address these problems in boys and men while remaining sensitive to the field’s androcentric past. Thirteen years in the making, they draw on more than 40 years of research showing that traditional masculinity is psychologically harmful and that socializing boys to suppress their emotions causes damage that echoes both inwardly and outwardly.

Prior to the second-wave feminist movement in the 1960s, all psychology was the psychology of men. Most major studies were done only on white men and boys, who stood in as proxies for humans as a whole. Researchers assumed that masculinity and femininity were opposite ends of a spectrum, and “healthy” psychology entailed identifying strongly with the gender roles conferred by a person’s biological sex.

But just as this old psychology left out women and people of color and conformed to gender-role stereotypes, it also failed to take men’s gendered experiences into account. Once psychologists began studying the experiences of women through a gender lens, it became increasingly clear that the study of men needed the same gender-aware approach, says Levant.

The main thrust of the subsequent research is that traditional masculinity—marked by stoicism, competitiveness, dominance and aggression—is, on the whole, harmful. Men socialized in this way are less likely to engage in healthy behaviors.
….

Gender and sexual minorities, too, must grapple with societal views of masculinity. This is an ever-shifting territory. When Levant and Rabinowitz launched the guideline-drafting process in 2005, only Massachusetts recognized same-sex marriage. Today, transgender issues are at the forefront of the cultural conversation, and there is increased awareness of the diversity of gender identity.

“What is gender in the 2010s?” asks Ryon McDermott, PhD, a psychologist at the University of South Alabama who also helped draft the men’s guidelines. “It’s no longer just this male-female binary.”

Though there is now more flexibility in gender norms than 30 years ago, according to Liang and McDermott, boys and men who identify as gay, bisexual or transgender still face higher-than-­average levels of hostility and pressure to conform to masculine norms. The 2015 National School Climate Survey found that 85 percent of LGBTQ students reported verbal harassment at school over their sexual orientation or gender expression (GLSEN, 2015). Gender-­nonconforming students reported worse treatment than did LGBTQ kids who conformed with traditional gender norms. These kinds of results indicate that gender policing still occurs, Liang says.

    I’ve done some reading about the APA; it’s been taken over by man-hating feminists and confused pajama-boys … So once again, I’m not surprised. Psychology, by the way, is about as useful to society as the Weather Channel.

      You give the weather channel less credit than it deserves. At least it had a 50-50 chance of being right… and there is a right and wrong.

      From what I heard on Ben Shapiro’s show yesterday is the APA is self flagellating (my words) for psychology’s having studied and based its assumptions/conclusions on studies of white males only which of course has ignored the female along with the usual victims of the rainbow persuasion. Not unlike the Salk vaccine in the 50’s lets have our government issue vagina hats for all school kids and be done with it. Transgenderism-is that a word-is Now as is gender neutrality.
      As someone having been born in New York City I’m expecting to have a new hirth certificate issued thereby giving me the option to change my birth sex.

        My daughter had to fill out a ‘health and wellness questionnaire’ at work yesterday to submit to the insurance provider. It asked her if her birth certificate indicated her choice of gender identity. So there you go guys….having fun, aren’t we? She said she was considering telling them she’s a man, just to mess with them. LOL Good grief!

    I caught this on yesterday’s Ben Shapiro show. Quoting, ver batim I believe, the age of enlightenment philosopher Jean -Jacques Rousseau: The world is mad and to be sane in a mad world is insanity itself.
    The solution is rather obvious though, perform GMO proceedures as is done with corn, wheat and other food plants, on male babies in utero and then clone them, sans peni, along with females. This brings to mind the 1969 tune from Zager and Evans “In the year 2525.” In turn females will be left with only carpet munching and scissoring to satisfy their sexual urges; the males, for lack of a better word, will have none. And finally when the aliens invade planet earth they will meet no resistance.And once again it’s time for my medications.

      Best to keep your meds at hand as we wind down into the next two years. Actually the insanity use to be buried… it took me a good long while to find something different and unique to blog about.
      Now its just pick the most outrageous. Yet we hear none of this in the news. Simply amazing. So those of us still sane will have to bear it alone.
