University tries to trash men, wimps out instead

John Wayne movie still (The Searchers)A liberal Wisconsin university, already known for its outlandish antics, continues to amaze its critics.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison introduced the "Men's Project" earlier in the school year

The purpose of the course is supposedly to "prevent future violence" by discussing masculinity, but one state senator called the course a "war on men."

Pajama BoyJulaine Appling, president of the Wisconsin Family Council, says the goal is to "emasculate" men.

"They don't want men being what God designed men to be," she says, "which is showing strength, being protectors, providers. They don't want that."

Because of the blowback from conservatives and the media, the university quietly ended the program as a course credit without announcing its plan to do so.

The university, Appling says, just went too far.

"In particular, the UW-Madison goes a step too far a lot of the time," she advises. "Perhaps this time they crossed the line that even they had to step back from and reconsider."
