Okay, THIS is just plain disturbing.
Do you know what “beard-stroking” is?
Unfortunately, I do. And in a few seconds, you will, too.
I know you’ve heard of the new liberal term, “toxic masculinity,” which they’ve been pushing hard in both entertainment and the mainstream media.
It essentially condemns traditional masculinity as being harmful – to both men and women, apparently – and so, liberals fight to repress it.
But this might be going a touch too far:
A “Men’s Therapeutic Cuddle Group.” Yes, seriously.
That’s what leftist men in Pennsylvania have created in order to “allow men to be more vulnerable,” and they meet twice a month.
And yes, it’s just as creepy as it sounds (via Breitbart):
“A description from the event page explains the various cuddle positions that attendees will participate in.
These positions are supplemented in some cases by hand-holding and hair or beard stroking.“
Are you still a little confused? Do you require a more detailed explanation?
Well, good news! The group website contains some very helpful step-by-step instructions.
And because I know you’re just dying for a snippet, here you go:
“Holding a man ‘motorcycle style’:Two or three men can participate. One of the men, the ‘holder’, sits on a pillow on the floor with his back against a wall or sofa.
The 2nd man; the one being held, sits in front of the holder facing forward so his back rests on the holder’s chest, his head on the shoulder.
The holder will embrace the man around the chest and, in time, may be asked for additional forms of affection such as hand holding, hair or beard stroking, back rubbing, hand massages, etc.”
After that comes words like “spooning” (something I could’ve sworn only men and women do), and particularly disturbing terms like “cuddle train.”
However, if someone there reminds you of an abusive teacher, uncle, or childhood bully, you don’t have to cuddle them.
So that’s good, right?
‘sigh’ You know, this is a perfect example of how liberalism is just plain out-of-step with the flow of reality and time.
This isn’t 1925. If liberals hadn’t noticed, the entire concept of masculinity has changed drastically in the past 75 years or so.
Heck, part of the hippie movement in the ’60s centered on “toxic masculinity” and it was actually trendy in the ’80s for men to be vulnerable and show their emotions.
None of that has changed and we haven’t reverted or regressed.
Leftists are fighting against things that have already changed; now they’re just pushing so far in the other direction that it’s either pointless or just downright twisted.
No, I don’t need a “Cuddle Group” to teach me how to be open and have emotions.
I grew up in the ’80s and ’90s, when the very idea of the “Type A alpha male” was frowned upon. Trust me, I get it.
But I also believe, simply put, that men should be men and women should be women. Don’t you?
SHARE if you agree that this crusade against masculinity has gone too far!
