You know there’s a problem when the University of Texas at Austin comes forward to insist that this new program does not treat masculinity as a mental disease.

The college says this nutty program was established to bring more men to the table to address interpersonal assault and sexual violence. OK. That’s not the mission of a university, but it’s somewhat mainstream. But this is a modern college campus – and the MasculinUT program doesn’t stop there.

The website says it helps “…men and masculine identified students develop a gender awareness…” As a guy, I have no need for this. I’m quite aware of what I am. But UT is providing this service to a variety of genders including female, transgender, queergender, and “non-binary” students who don’t know what they are. 

You wonder why the Legislature puts up with this psychobabble.

Not to be outdone, Texas Tech has named a new VP of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

I suppose most big universities are on the diversity bandwagon, usually hiring someone from some oppressed minority group to be the Director of Diversity – as if campuses are not left-wing enough already.

Texas Tech has named Carol A. Sumner, an African American woman from the look of her photo, to the post. She was lured away from being the senior associate dean of students at Arizona State University in Tempe. Sumner is all in with the diversity agenda:

“This is a tremendous opportunity to help advance the goals of the university and the work that has already been done to help build a welcoming and inclusive community. I’m humbled because this is an exceptionally important role that is literally breaking new ground on what it means to be a student at Texas Tech…”

What work has already been done?

Carol A. Sumner

Separating the students by gender and race? That’s the important work she’s pledging to continue?

How much money are taxpayers, students, and parents contributing to a position that has a goal of dividing us? What will this person do on a day-to-day basis other than undermine the status of white male students?

Why do big colleges continue to do stupid things?

We’ve written before about these directors of diversity and inclusion.

We’ve written about Dr. Pam Midgett (PhD) at Midwestern State in Wichita Falls and her Human Diversity course that delves heavily into the concept of white privilege, literally forcing white students to write mea culpas admitting their guilt.

We’ve written about attacks on white DNA at Texas State.

We’ve written about the Snowflake movement at the University of Missouri.

Getting back to UT Austin, we’ve written about former trustee Wallace Hall and his fight against a corrupt admissions policy.

Still, the loons that run our big universities keep on doing this stuff.

Remember, at UT, “what starts here changes the world.”

That’s what they tell us in the famous TV commercials with the imposing UT Tower looming in the background. You’d almost think UT is all about teaching and preparing students for their chosen careers.

But even a program that might be justified (if it were real) is damaged by left-wing language and silly belief system that defies centuries of traditional norms.

This is from the website:

Our vision is to provide a framework for men and masculine-identified students to develop a gender awareness that translates into positive contributions to their relationships on campus, relationships to their friends and families, and quality of life, including career goals. More specifically, as a project of Voices Against Violence, it is our ultimate goal to promote healthy models of masculinities to prevent interpersonal, relationship, and sexual violence on campus. At the same time, this program was created as a resource and support for students who want to learn more about their masculine gender identities, including students traditionally understood as male, as well as female, transgender, genderqueer, and non-binary students who embody a diversity of masculinities.

Normal people do not use words like “genderqueer” or terms like “a diversity of masculinities.” But the next generation will because our big universities are teaching this language to them.

We’ve been saying that our system of higher education is too broken to fix. MasculinUT may be the best example yet. We need to start over – and the sooner the better.
