In the women’s magazine Marie Claire (yes, a women’s magazine), the alarmingly effeminate Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, has penned “Why I’m Raising My Kids to Be Feminists”. It begins:
I am in politics because every day, I get to work to make the world a little better—for my kids, and for yours. I’m proud of the dedicated work our team is doing to make Canada more open, more inclusive, more just—and gender equal. But some of the most important work I do is not as a political leader, but as a parent. Every day, at home, I have the astonishing and humbling opportunity—together with my wife Sophie—to nurture empathy, compassion, self-love, and a keen sense of justice in our three kids.
No, this is not a parody.
Trudeau sets a new high in metrosexual pretentiousness by discussing how he and his wife are instilling a certain ideology into their 3 children, each of whom has a requisite, special-snowflake name: his daughter Ella-Grace, and his two sons Xavier and Hadrien (the latter an admittedly cool name, but not for the reasons Trudeau likely chose it.)
The piece reads like it was written by a stoned freshman hippie in his dorm at 3 am:
Feminism is not just the belief that men and women are equal. It’s the knowledge that when we are all equal, all of us are more free.
For his sons, Trudeau wants to:
… help them grow into empathetic young people and adults, strong allies who walk through the world with openness, love, and a fierce attachment to justice. I want my sons to escape the pressure to be a particular kind of masculine that is so damaging to men and to the people around them.
Between stuff like this, surely taught in primary schools as well, and news today that the Boy Scouts of America will now be ‘fully inclusive’ and admit girls, what does it take to stop this War Against Boyhood?
