THE masculinization of students at Wellesley College, the famous women’s institution in Massachussetts, began long before women started openly identifying themselves as men and having surgery to slice off their breasts. Femininity was marginalized in the feminist era in favor of male standards of achievement. Now there are enough “trans men” among students and alumni to create a club and to foster worries that these “men” may represent a threatening patriarchal influence at the tony school, which has an endowment of almost $1.7 billion.
For a glimpse of how mental illness and sexual perversion have gripped an entire institution, read The New York Times recent piece on the school.
Shouldn’t the school be concerned that women students becoming “men” are insulting women? After all, what’s wrong with being a woman? You would think a women’s college would be the first place where women could be talked out of wanting to be men. The spiritual mutilation of women has led logically to their physical mutilation with hormone therapy and surgery.
This whole thing exposes a deep lie behind feminist ideology at Wellesley and elsewhere — it’s based on envy of men.
Pauline and Henry Fowle Durant founded the college in 1870 in order to prepare women for “…great conflicts, for vast reforms in social life.” Their goal has been reached.
