DANGEROUS: The patriarchy is trembling in fear.
A talk hosted by the UCLA Intergroup Relations Program on Tuesday drew a less than enthusiastic crowd. The event was deemed as an invitation for students to discuss “toxic masculinity” on campus:
“In lieu of recent events (presidential ‘locker room’ talk and UCLA fraternities in-house alcohol ban), we would like to invite the UCLA community to dialogue about how toxic masculinity manifests itself on our campus. While we hope to discuss Greeklife, we also want to touch upon the silence surrounding toxic masculinity, emotional repression, locker room talk, and broader social norms. We plan on having a safe, productive, and honest dialogue and we hope you can join us!” the invitation read.
According to the Facebook event page, the talk was also a “fragrance-free” zone:
“THIS IS A FRAGRANCE-FREE EVENT. For the health and safety of all participants, please refrain from wearing products that contain fragrances when attending IGR events. Such products include: perfumes, hair products, deodorants, detergents,”
Now there’s a new one. MORE
