PragerU Breaks Down Why the Left Demonizes Masculinity

A new video from Prager University breaks down the term “toxic masculinity” and explains why it is perfectly fine for men to be masculine — an idea progressives reject.

A new video from Prager University takes aim at the term “toxic masculinity,” which has seen increased popularity over the past few years on college campuses and in progressive media.

CRTV host Allie Stuckey argues that masculinity is not a bad thing. In fact, it is wrong to suggest that masculinity itself is inherently harmful.

Here’s why: When you try to make men more like women, you don’t get less “toxic masculinity,” you get more.

Why? Because bad men don’t become good when they stop being men; they become good when they stop being bad. Aggression, violence, and unbridled ambition can’t be eliminated from the male psyche; they can only be harnessed. And when they are harnessed, they are tools for good, not for harm.

The same masculine traits that bring destruction also defeat tyranny. The traits that foster greed also build economies. The traits that drive men to take foolish risks also drive men to take heroic risks.
