WHAT? University program includes 'bread winner' in definition of 'unhealthy masculinity

What's going on? 

The University of Texas at Austin recently launched the MasculinUT project, a program that is part of the school’s Counseling and Mental Health Center. MasculinUT's purported goal is to give students a new version of "healthy masculinity," pushing back against the idea that we should just tell boys to "act like a man."

How does the program define "unhealthy masculinity"? 

Restrictive Masculinity is illustrated with an "act like a man box" that includes qualities society expects men to have. Here are some of the traits on the list:

  • Bread winner
  • Tough
  • Strong
  • Successful
  • Take care of people

Glenn's take: 

Masculinity is a good thing, and society should stop treating it as something to be fixed.

"Stop tearing down men," he said on today's show.
