As Women March, Ohio State Course Reprimands "White Heterosexual Masculinity"

As 1000s of Women's March protesters gather in cities across America on the one-year anniversary of President Trump's inauguration, a class taught this spring at Ohio State University will review a parade of reasons why white heterosexual masculinity is allegedly problematic, tackling the topic from the constructs of racial issues, bullying, pop culture, societal expectations and much more, according to its syllabus.

As The College Fix's Amanda Tidwell reports,  the syallbus states that masculinity simultaneously harms yet privileges men.

The course, “Be a Man! Masculinities, Race and Nation,” includes a variety of readings to that end, including its required textbook “Dude, You’re a Fag!” by C.J. Pascoe, which analyzes masculinity as not only a gendered process, but sexual one, its Amazon description states.

Other assigned reading excerpts include: “Masculinity as Homophobia” by Michael Kimmel; “Advertising and the Construction of Violent White Masculinity” by Jackson Katz; “Dude Sex: Dudes Who Have Sex with Dudes” by Jane Ward; “Looking for My Penis” by Richard Fung; “Sodomy in the New World” by Jonathan Goldberg; and “Teaching Men’s Anal Pleasure” by Susan Stiritz.

The class is also expected to screen “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert,” the dashcam footage of Philando Castile’s murder, Key & Peele’s “Hoodie Skit,” and an episode of “The New Normal.”

The course is ultimately presented as a study in “feminist masculinity” that seeks to explain how ideas about masculinity “simultaneously harm yet privilege” men, the syllabus states. It also aims to explain how “beliefs regarding masculinity serve to justify certain kinds of violence by men against others, and violence against particular groups of men.”

Before outlining any academic criteria of the course, the syllabus states that the class meets “on land taken by force from Native Americans.” On the first day of the “Be a Man!” class in early January, students went over a “male privilege checklist,” according to the syllabus.

The course was created and is taught by Jonathan Branfman. Branfman is a doctoral candidate in Ohio State’s Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and a recent recipient of a 2017-18 Presidential Fellowship, the most prestigious award given to students by the OSU Graduate School, according the the department’s website.

Branfman is also author of the new children’s book “You Be You!” intended for 7- to 12-year-olds that gives parents a “simple and accessible way” to introduce children to gender and sexual identity “in hopes of decreasing stigmas associated with the LGBTQ community,” the Lantern campus newspaper reports.

“It was really a result of teaching women’s, gender and sexuality studies classes at OSU,” Branfman told the Lantern.

“I often found myself thinking, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if everyone got really clear, unstigmatized information about gender and sexual diversity at a young age instead of them having to unlearn all kinds of harmful false ideas when they’re 12 instead of when they’re 20?’

Branfman did not respond to requests from The College Fix seeking comment.

“The goals of this course are both scholarly and practical. On a scholarly level, students will trace the scholarly debates about masculinity, and understand how these questions have emerged out of feminist and queer research. On a practical level, this knowledge may help students to understand the ideologies they encounter in daily life. In turn, this understanding may help students to navigate the pressures, exclusions and violence they face in order to enhance their own wellbeing and others,” the syllabus states.

Never one to shy away from expressing his feelings, Paul Craig Roberts recently opined: Americans - especially white people who are the target of the deadly ideology of Identity Politics and are placed by the ideology in the same position as Jews in Nazi Germany and capitalists in Soviet Russia - are unaware of the extent to which Identity Politics is now the dominant force in American culture.

Initially, white males - such as the University of Virginia history professor on NPR who obligingly demonized the white males who do not accept their second class status - survive by mouthing Identity Politics and crawling on their knees. But this is a temporary respite.

For Identity Politics the only acceptable white heterosexual males are those who admit their gender and sexual preference guilt and accept their punishment for being the victimizers of women, blacks, and homosexuals.

As anti-white male propaganda is apparently the only mental activity of which the liberal/progressive/left is capable, America, broken into pieces by Identity Politics, is heading into civil war.

I wonder which side will control the nukes and bio-chemical weapons.

If the white heterosexual males lose, I wonder who will protect the white women. Are they destined for the same rape and butchery as befell German women from the Russians and Americans once the Wehrmacht surrendered?

Of course, this is an impermissible question.

Identity Politics always leads to violence, and Americans will not be spared.

To be a white male is almost a sin in the west.  I say white males must take the leadership roles because our culture and our survival depends on it.  The deep state wants a bastardized neanderthal negroid as dumb as hell.  Why?  Because it will be the slave of the future.


I say niggers go back to Africa & sandniggers back to the shitholes of the middle east.

People do segregate into in-groups. 

It is formation of an unnatural in-group to separate white men from white women.  In effect, the people pushing this new narrative are going against nature. They are asking for white women to fight against their own brothers and fathers.  

I consider this a sin of the highest order, and those  promulgating the sin are basically satanic.

And, what group of people continually fights against nature?  One guess?

Here is an untruth from author:

and are placed by the ideology in the same position as Jews in Nazi Germany

During the hyperinflation, our friends bought up much of Germany.  They borrowed dollars from their cousins - this was so extensive that up to 1/3 of Germany was sold off.  A hostile foreign elite attempted to take over and impose their values on another population.  In other words, the country was being taken over.  

So, to conflate what is happening with white men in America to what happened to Jews in Germany DOES NOT FLY.  It is not a valid comparison, as if Jews were victims, and not the victimizer.

On an unrelated note, the Bible never talks about feelings.

When reading about this esteemed professor,

The course was created and is taught by Jonathan Branfman. Branfman is a doctoral candidate in Ohio State’s Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

I checked his back round a bit and found this,

Although I've been fully out since August 2009,  I really needed time to fully accept my own sexuality before I could consider engaging in LGBTQ advocacy.  However, as I have read more and more about LGBTQ history and the injustices that still face many LGBTQ Americans today, it became increasingly clear to me that I needed to get involved.

He has been involved alright. How heartwarming it is to see how much he really loves reaching out to the 7-12 year olds.

Settle down, keep a low profile, arm up and prepare, that's what you need to do because you will be needed later.

Most people of color don't support the kill off of the whites. But 30% of all people of color do support and plan to kill off the whites. They're just waiting to begin the Jewish International Communism genocide of whites, it's a repeat of the millions of white middle class Christians the Jews slaughtered in the 1917 Russian revolution.

Therefore, it's better to be prepared, train and wait. It's coming, the writing is on the wall and being talked about everyday in NYC communist controlled media. A race war is all the communist have left to take power to continue the planned destruction of the white people.

its interesting women have yet to figure out  - they lose in this hate white male game

guys who have their act together and high IQ and can actualize objectives  - are a prize - women will never compete in risk environment - only government and large institutions dependent on procedure not innovation -  will they fill slots and then eventually -  those entities will roll over and fail


a couple of generations of women will be very unhappy with barren pussy

"...women will never compete in risk environment.."

I know what you mean, but I think you need to distinguish between preference and necessity.  Men have different preferences than women that stem from biological differences.  That said, when the environment that supports those preferences disappears or is under attack, most women will rise to the occasion and defend what's theirs.

For example, my wife has never picked up a weapon, much less fired a shot in anger, but I have no doubt in her ability to do so should the occasion arise.

Women are capable of great courage, often exceeding that of men given their relative disadvantages.  This is especially true when it involves the safety of children.

Let's not fall for the inane rhetoric of a vocal minority of frustrated women whose goal is to project their own shortcomings onto others.  Support for women in their endeavors is, to me, an essential aspect of what it means to be a man.  If we have it thrown in our face from time to time, best we deal with it as a man, rather than tar all women with the same brush a small minority of them would use on us.

Big ups to the women on this group BTW.  If you weren't here, this would be just another man-fest, and that gets old after a while.

" my wife has never picked up a weapon "
You should change that.  When I met my wife, she had never, nor ever intended to, fire a weapon.  One trip to the range after a stressful day at work, and several hundred .22 rounds later, she found her new stress reliever.  She now relieves stress in the 9mm, .223, 5.56, and 12ga varieties.  Hell, SHE drags ME to the range sometimes now!  It really is a great couples exercise.

Fully agree. One of the signs of late stage civilizational decay:  heightened interest in sex particularly in perverted forms. Others:

"increased gambling, increased smoking, the growing use of alcohol and narcotics, a growing obsession with sex and with perversions of sex, an increasing mania for speed, for nervous tension, and for noise; above all, perhaps, a growing tendency to regard violence as a solution
for all problems, be they domestic, social, economic, ideo-logical, or international.

Another point, did white America act the same way to Obama, like what is being done to Trump? What we're seeing is the Democratic Communist Party working to start a deadly civil war in which millions of Americans will be killed. Did white America try to start a race war to kill off Americans during Obama?

We're in a race war planned and funded by the Democratic Communist Party, code words, Purple Revolution and Resistance are all for a civil war. DNC officials are openly calling for a race war to genocide white America. It has been said over and over by DNC, but it's not big news to advocate a race war, because the national main stream media systems based in NYC are instigating and propagandizing to start a race war with fake news lies and unimportant issues which cause maximum hate toward white middle class America. It's a pattern and everyone can see it now.

This seems to have another point as well.

As far as I can tell, NO other race of significant numbers has a culture that has ever believed in freedom. Not Asians, not blacks, not Indians (subcontinental variety) many of the American continental natives ((Aztecs and many others - but not sure about Cherokees and other North American tribes) - the list goes on. Wipe out whites, you at least substantially damage the idea of freedom.

Of course, taken to its logical conclusion, feminists (at the least) are left hating everything men gave the - which is all of technological civilization, leaving them with the option to live in camps, caves, or ruins - for as long as they can.

The Ultimate World Order

— As Pictured in "The Jewish Utopia"

By Robert H. Williams


If the Communists think they are going to conquer all the nations and set up a world government under a dictator of their own choosing they may be in for a surprise. For their parent, the sect which originally launched the Communist movement as an offshoot to accomplish a specific and temporary purpose, has plans for an ultimate world order of its own; and this sect, commonly called Zionist, now vastly overshadows the much cruder Communist machine in skill, finance, organization and influence.

The Communist plan for rubbing out all national, religious, cultural and racial lines and submerging the world in formless, characterless chaos for easy domination is grandiose enough. To say that there is still another, more grandiose plan beyond that for which the Communist machine was set up is indeed to challenge the credulity of most of us, especially of us Anglo-Saxons who are too busy with our humdrum routines to pull the propaganda curtain aside and see the giant hiding there.

Jews were not the victims of WWII - they were the aggressors. They formally declared war on Germany in 1933 BEFORE Hitler took over as Fuhrer and in reaction to his rise in power and before any reprisals on the part of the German government to Jewish interests in the country.  They implemented a worldwide economic blockade on Germany that was very effective (it would be, wouldn't it!).  When Hitler finally came to power the next year, he declared the Jews to be enemies of the state as they had declared war on Germany and while the boycott of German goods was taking effect and crippling an already precarious German economy.  He created the concentration camps and started rounding them up just like America ultimately did to its 'enemies of the State', the Japanese-Americans.


Hitler saw what the Jews had done to German morals and their impact on traditional German life and he wanted to rid the country of them.  That is why he worked closely behind the scenes with Zionist organisations to provide a means of allowing Jews to leave the country with their wealth in tact and move to Palestine.  Any Jews not willing to do so were considered enemies of the state and were rounded up and placed into concentration camps.  This also worked to the advantage of the Zionists as it provided further encouragement of Jews who were considering what course to take to leave the country and head for Palestine.

In a country where affirmative action and victimhood are hugely rewarded, this is a logical outcome. Distort the statistics and history so you look like a victim then get hysterical and demand special rights. Look at the dozens of women-issues related Congressional lobby groups. Then try to find ONE for men. I couldn't. The army draft program doesn't count. F*ck feminism.
