The APA Can’t Spin Its Way Out of Its Attack on ‘Traditional Masculinity’
Our culture has grown more disdainful of common, inherent male characteristics.
Feeling the heat, the APA responded to critics of its declaration that "traditional masculinity" is harmful. The response is . . . lacking
The APA can’t be given a pass for its spin. If the concern is for extreme behavior to scorn the conventional desires and needs of countless men and boys, then use different words. Don’t call bad behavior “traditional masculinity”
