Forget the false narratives of toxic masculinity, #MeToo, campus sexual assault, intersectionality hierarchies and all the others of the over-the-edge, feminist/progressive ideologues. Let us instead return to the reality of the Greatest Generation and all the contributions that boys and men have made to Western civilization and contemporary society (“Teen who charged attackers was lone death in school shooting,” Web, May 8). Celebrate boys, men, fathers and traditional masculinity.
To survive and thrive, we must reject all the false narratives of identity politics and return to sanity and traditional (not faux) American values. Genuine social science research supports the value of boys, men and most especially fathers when it comes to family, child development and positive developmental outcomes.
Reject all of the ideological false narratives of the feminist/progressive left and return to science and truth.
