Default The Masculinity Confession Booth

Where else but in ...Canada , Regina Uni .

I suppose those masculinity confession booths will be especially
popular with Muslim men .

Quote:
A video explaining the aims of the conference has just been produced.
It catalogues the many ways in which males are responsible for war, violence, and sexual predation; why male undergraduates should be ashamed of themselves most if not all of the time; and what can be done about their current condition. The footage contains the quintessence of Maoism, expressed by a Regina football player. “We don’t have to continue to live in a misogynistic society,” he proclaims. The present status is nothing to quo about, and the task of alteration “falls on everyone and especially men because frankly we are the problem right now.” Other classmates earnestly fall in line.
