Radical feminists can’t stand Jordan Peterson and his so-called “toxic masculinity.”
They hate the mild-mannered best-selling author and professor because he defends traditional values.
But when this feminist challenged Jordan Peterson at his own game, it got ugly fast.
Helen Lewis is a feminist reporter from self-proclaimed men’s magazine, British GQ.
She recently interviewed Jordan Peterson covering a variety of topics from politics to diets.
When she asked about the differences between the two genders, Peterson said we need to stop telling “little boys to be more like little girls.”
The Blaze reports:
In a recent interview with British GQ, Jordan Peterson — the best-selling author and popular and controversial psychology professor from Canada — said that it’s important to avoid socializing “little boys to be more like little girls.”
He also tackled the subject of repressing aggression — specifically in young men.
Peterson discussed “classical feminine interests” as well as “classically masculine interests,” and said that there’s no problem with both males and females having interchangeable interests that aren’t necessarily confined to gender roles.
However, he does have a problem when the education system dictates such roles and tries to feminize young men and masculinize young women.
“The problem is when it’s dictated by … the education system,” Peterson said. “[An influential 1980s psychologist] recommended as a control for male violence that boys be socialized more like little girls and I don’t think that that’s particularly an unpopular viewpoint.”
“The de-emphasis on competition, for example, in games,” he explained. “The increase in the rise of competitive games where scores aren’t kept. … It’s all a manifestation of that sort of theory, as far as I’m concerned. The idea that there’s something intrinsically wrong with competition — it’s a very foolish idea, especially if you want to motivate relatively aggressive boys, because they’re competitive.
Lewis did not like that answer at all.
She and the other so-called “progressives” want to eradicate traditional masculinity from the world.
Their end goal is equality of outcome.
And they believe the only way they can achieve that is by erasing differences between men and women.
But this social engineering is a fool’s errand.
And it will only lead to the further erosion of families and our society.
Men and women are different, and we should encourage those differences, not label them as the product of sexism.
