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.

Obama opens all Federal building showers, bathrooms to trangendered

There was a time when men went to barber shops and talked what men talk about and women went to beauty salons and enjoyed trashy movie star magazines, caught up on the news of the neighborhood with a touch of gossip. Am I getting old? Now we are going to allow potential perverts without question into women’s showers and changing rooms in all federal buildings. By the way this includes National Parks for those of us who are campers. Here tis:

The Obama administration has ordered 9,000-plus federal buildings across the United States allow biological men into women’s bathrooms, locker rooms and showers in order to comply with the administration’s interpretation of Title IX law.

The order comes after the Department of Justice and Department of Education sent a significant guidance letter to all public school districts in May, advising them to allow transgender students to have access to bathrooms and locker rooms designated for the opposite biological sex.

The GSA guidance explains that individuals will not be required “to show proof of surgery to be treated in accordance with their gender identity and obtain access to the restroom corresponding with their gender identity.”

The bulletin adds that federal employers can not side-step the bulletin by requiring transgender individuals to use single-user restrooms.
As 24 states are suing the Obama administration over the public school transgender guidance, Severino asserts that legal action might be the only way to get a message across to the administration that the American people have not yet approved of its interpretation of Title IX

WH says ‘Just putting up curtains’ in locker rooms will protect privacy in trans locker rooms

Little mentioned this weekend, as the Nation attempts to grapple with the latest edict spewing forth regarding bathroom access, was that this is not just limited to bathrooms. Even more intrusive is that this applies to locker rooms and showers as well. And why should it stop at just school age children? Let’s wreck our common sense norms at any cost. Here Josh Ernest with his best cavalier attitude.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters Friday that the administration issued specific suggestions along with its directive for public schools nationwide to allow students to use bathrooms and locker rooms according to their gender identity (rather than their biological sex) and that one suggestion is “just putting up curtains” in school locker rooms.
