Journalism Prof: Down With Manhood!

Journalism professor Robert Jensen declares that masculinity is bad:

We need to get rid of the whole idea of masculinity. It's time to abandon the claim that there are certain psychological or social traits that inherently come with being biologically male. [...]
I don't think the planet can long survive if the current conception of masculinity endures. We face political and ecological challenges that can't be met with this old model of what it means to be a man. At the more intimate level, the stakes are just as high. For those of us who are biologically male, we have a simple choice: We men can settle for being men, or we can strive to be human beings.

Moonbattery isn't eating away our manhood fast enough to suit Professor Jensen. Maybe we need to try mass castration.

If reporters don't exactly reflect the point of view of normal people, it could be because characters like Jensen appear to be all too common on journalism faculties.

Robert Jensen: journalism prof, moonbat, sissyfag.

His knowledge of masculinity is strictly secondhand, perhaps literally.

If I ever meet this shitbag, I will personally KICK HIS SORRY FAG ASS.

Obviously he isn't getting enough, and probably can't afford to pay for it on a prof's salary. Why else espouse such ridiculous ideas?

What this genius doesn't "get' is that where men cease to be manly, women have no choice but to fill the vaccum by taking on masculine these "undesirable" traits don't go away just because men are silenced. Someone will always take on masculinity because it's essential to the balance of existence.

What we DO know from experience is that aggressive women only produce mouthy control freaks who are good at talking over other people, suppressing democratic expression and who make lousy mothers.

Even the most primitive peoples clearly recognize the natural balance that the masculine and feminine bring to healthy perspective. It's more than just hormones. In order for society to survive, the two natures of men and women must be free to be themselves and to co-exist. Without that, there is no balance.

According to the Wikipedia on Jensen:

According to Jensen, the United States was "just as guilty" as the hijackers in committing acts of violence. Jensen wrote that the Al Qaeda attack on the World Trade Center and The Pentagon "was no more despicable than the massive acts of terrorism...that the U.S. government has committed during my lifetime."

A Journalist Prof for Saddam
By Mike Adams | December 16, 2004

Robert Jensen ( is a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin. He is also the author of Citizens of the Empire: The Struggle to Claim Our Humanity. In an article written for The Austin American Statesman, Jensen recently claimed that “The United States has lost the war in Iraq, and that's a good thing.”

While Jensen was careful to say that the loss of American lives is not to be celebrated, he insulted our soldiers deeply by saying that their deaths “haven't protected Americans or brought freedom to Iraqis.” Instead, he brushed off their service to our country as merely part of “a quest to extend the American empire.”

In his article, Jensen proudly states, “I welcome the U.S. defeat.” He also says “it's essential the American empire be defeated and dismantled.” Why? Because, according to Jensen, “In Iraq, the Bush administration invaded not to liberate but to extend and deepen U.S. domination.” He also says that the invasion of Iraq is “about control over the flow of oil and oil profits,” though he concedes that it is not about outright ownership of Iraqi oil.

According to Professor Jensen, “When we admit defeat and pull out - not if, but when - the fate of Iraqis depends in part on whether the United States (1) makes good on legal and moral obligations to pay reparations, and (2) allows international institutions to aid in creating a truly sovereign Iraq.”

According to Jensen, “we shouldn't expect politicians to do either without pressure. An anti-empire movement - the joining of antiwar forces with the movement to reject corporate globalization - must create that pressure.” After reminding us that he is “glad for the U.S. military defeat in Iraq,” Jensen says that we should pursue “the most courageous act of citizenship in the United States today: Pledging to dismantle the American empire.”

When I was first sent a copy of Jensen’s article, I was flabbergasted. I immediately tried to think of ways I could oppose the professor in his efforts to demoralize our troops and defeat our nation in a time of war. But, now, I’ve had a change of heart.

As of today, I hereby announce the establishment of the new Robert Jensen Deportation Fund. Once the fund has enough money to buy Jensen a one-way ticket to Iraq, we can contact Iraqi insurgents to let them know he is on his way to help defeat our troops.

Based upon my reading of Jensen’s work, I can tell that he is a brave revolutionary warrior. There is no sense in keeping him here in the evil American Empire, seething with anger against our troops. We should do everything within our power to help him bravely face those troops in combat. After all, he is the one who says that we should be “courageous” and “dismantle the American empire.” I look forward to seeing him face off against some of the Marines that he has tried to demoralize with his anti-American rhetoric. Good luck, Professor.

Who knows what will happen after Professor Jensen is deported to engage his enemies (the Americans) in combat in Iraq? I don’t want him to die because, as Jensen says, the loss of American lives is not to be celebrated. If our Marines capture him, perhaps they could just dress him in a pink Burqua and send him across enemy lines for a lesson on tolerance and diversity in the Middle East.

It is no laughing matter when we imagine the outrage Jensen’s diatribe must bring to the hearts of the brave men and women who serve in Iraq. They risk their lives to preserve our constitutional rights. Sadly, some will die preserving a coward’s perceived right to commit treason.

We men can settle for being men, or we can strive to be human beings.
In other words, only women are human beings and femininity is the measure of humanity. Not that this surprises me, since feminism has argued exactly this for decades.

Jensen supposed to be saying something groundbreaking here? OLD-HAT-RAP.....Ben said b4.yawn.

This is obviously someone who had the snot kicked out of him as a child by the other "masculine" boys while he played with dolls and had tea parties with them.

What is it about American culture that we even give this guy the time of day?

Haven't we feminized America enough? Haven't we emasculated America enough?

Only good thing....he'll be the first to get beheaded when the Muslims take over, because they really hate effite college professors.

It's bad enough we have to put up with Bloody Feminists telling us me that we need to get in touch with our "Feminine Sides" and put up with THEM telling us,in so many #@%chy ways that it's wrong for men to be Masculine,but to read or hear this from a fellow of my own gender is Angering! A Traitor to his gender,he is and thus deserves a Traitor's punishment(Death).I am a Man and Proud of it!Now,I do have a sensitive,cultural,well rounded side,but,contrary to stereotype,that adds,not destracts from my Masculinity.While this Professor of Ignorance wants men to be wimps and sissies,I believe Men should be as GOD intended Us to be:Strong,Brave,Loving Leaders in the Family which all adds up to True Masculinity.And We should bring our Sons up to be just like that(Hopefully,1 Day,I will have a Wife and Children,a Daughter and a Son).

And as for the War in Iraq,I'd give anything to see you face one of our Brave Men or Women(Perhaps a Woman Soldier,to add to the Irony)and tell them what you believe.And then after you're handed over to the enemy,or maybe locked up in our Military Stockades for being a Traitor,or at least knocked on your backside with the butt of his or her gun,I'll Celebrate with My Fellow True Americans at your embarrassement,punishment or demise.Either way,Proffessor of Treason,you'd get what you deserved!

Dollars to donuts this douchebag failed biology in school. Masculinity is bad, sure, sure. We can blame our primate ancestors for daring to climb down out of those trees some 3 million years ago. Thats why we're hardwired to be like we are in this day and age.

Masculinity is bad becuase every woman he's ever dated has left him for an actual man.

Posted by: Olie at October 19, 2006 9:42 AM

This moonbat would not know masculinity if it bitch-slapped him the face. Obviously his parents really wanted a girl,and made him wear a dress growing up.
