Princeton hiring men’s manager to eradicate “toxic masculinity”

Princeton University is looking to hire an “Interpersonal Violence Clinician and Men’s Engagement Manager” to develop programming targeting high-risk, campus-based populations for prevention of “interpersonal violence,” such as sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking.

The new position is designed to work closely with the campus’ Sexual Harassment/Assault Advising, Resources and Education (SHARE) office, which bills itself as a “survivor-centered, trauma-informed confidential resource on campus for the Princeton University community.”

As is implicitly evident by the descriptions of these offices, the men’s program puts forth an aggressor based platform, whereas the women’s platform is victim based.

According to SHARE’s stats, Princeton is a hotbed for sexual misconduct, acknowledging one in four undergrads on campus experienced “sexual misconduct” during the 2015-16 school year, and 79 percent of these undergrads accused another Princeton student of “sexual assault.”

A primary objective for the Men’s Engagement Manager is to develop programs designed to facilitate a “healthy” masculinity, as opposed to the “toxic” masculinity which has been running rampant since the beginning of time, imperiling society at large. Opponents of what is being called a “healthy” masculinity say it’s part of the feminists’ movement to reprogram men to lose their male libido and become more feminine.

And, why not? In a society where the lines between male and female have become obscured through the mass delusion that you can pick and choose whether you’re a male or female on any given day, it seems the likely next step in this alternate reality.

According to the school’s communications office, the position is being put in place to challenge “gender stereotypes” and strengthen Princeton’s efforts to prevent violence among all campus populations. The primary focus, however, is how to best engage men as agents of “positive” change. To this end, it will work closely with and expand the school’s violence prevention program that’s already in place: Men’s Allied Voices for a Respectful and Inclusive Community (MAVRIC).

MAVRIC was established in 2013 for the explicit purpose of denigrating males for their inherent masculinity through subtle messaging – not unlike relabeling masculinity as “toxic masculinity” –  and programming the new generation of men through workshops and other “educational programming” to view masculinity through the lens of today’s feminist. This is what they call promoting a “healthy masculinity,” while others call it brainwashing or creating a stigma through messaging.

The position also entails recruiting and training students to serve as role models for “men-identified students related to the development of healthy relationships and healthy masculinity.”

According to the job listing, this new position opens up the ability of the department to execute a compulsory accountability program for students accused of sexual misconduct under Title IX. The candidate must have a master’s or doctorate in a field related to social work or women’s studies.
