The New York Times released an article instructing parents how to raise their sons to be the next SJW pussy-hat wearing individuals.
The article, titled “How To Raise A Feminist Son,” poses the question “How can we raise feminist sons?” and suggests what one would think to be commonsense parenting rules. It lists things such as “teach him to take care of himself,” “teach him to care for others” and “that no means no.”
Additionally, parents should allow their sons to be themselves in order for them to “reach their full potential.” Another recommendation is encouraging activities like dress up.
There’s also a recommendation that parents let their sons cry instead of teaching them that anger is acceptable. Have you heard of the new social justice crusade against something called toxic masculinity? Well, the en vogue term implies that innate male characteristics are connected to — encourage is a better term — acts of violence.
“If we want to create an equitable society, one in which everyone can thrive, we need to also give boys more choices. As Gloria Steinem says, “I’m glad we’ve begun to raise our daughters more like our sons, but it will never work until we raise our sons more like our daughters.”
It makes sense to use a quote from the feminist that once stated that housewives are parasites.
Boys are supposedly falling behind in school and work simply because they are not being taught to thrive in the “new, pink economy.” But the article goes on to claim that their lack of stereotypical feminine emotions such as empathy are the reasons for their drawbacks.
But there are benefits to certain parenting strategies mentioned, such as children who play with others of the opposite sex develop better problem-solving and communication skills and that boys whose mothers work for at least a year during their teens are more likely to marry women who work.
But the prime advantage in this list is mentioned indirectly, and in a more negative manner.
“There is growing evidence that boys raised in households without a father figure fare worse in behavior, academics and earnings.”
The typical modern-day feminist rhetoric that disregards the impacts of an absent father, has been disregarded– and Twitter users aren’t angrily tweeting about it. It may be safe to assume these facts went right over feminists heads.
