Christianity’s Masculinity Crisis

It might seem odd to classify gender theory as a national security threat. After all, if a woman feels she was meant to be a man, there seems to be no reason why her personal desires should have any impact on national policy.

But, as you’re no doubt aware, gender theorists want to make it a national issue.  They want to challenge all the assumptions about masculinity and femininity upon which a great many social arrangements are based. And they want your children to be indoctrinated in the latest gender fads as soon as they enter school. According to Get Out Now, a new book on public schools, “most school districts across the country have embraced gender ideology.” Thus, in one Minnesota kindergarten, children were introduced to the concept of gender fluidity by listening to a reading of My Princess Boy. Not to be outdone, a California kindergarten teacher read her students I am Jazz—a book about a boy becoming a girl.

G.K. Chesterton observed that “it ought to be the oldest things that are taught to the youngest people.” In other words, children should be first exposed to the time-tested ideas and facts that we’re most sure of. But in today’s educational wonderland, Chesterton’s formula has been turned on its head. These days, educators feel they have a mandate to introduce the most novel and untested theories to the youngest people.

One of the fashionable new theories is that traditional expressions of masculinity, such as roughhousing among boys, are “toxic” and ought to be eliminated. But whatever the dangers posed to society by masculine aggression, a greater danger arises when men lack the instinct to resist aggression.
