    Recent salvo on the war on boys (and men)

    I ran into this tonight. Interesting and provocative. I'll put the article in blue text. I like the final tweet at the bottom.


    It all started here, with a tweet from Dr. Danna Young basically smearing white middle school boys claiming if they’re not ‘pulled out’ they end up in the alt-right pipeline. Why is it ALWAYS white, middle-aged, liberal women?

    Don’t answer that, we know why.


    My teen told me something that’s been haunting me for weeks.

    He said “I think almost every white middle school boy is in the alt-right pipeline -at some point-until something/someone pulls them out.”

    — Dr. Danna Young����✌�� (@dannagal)
    Note, she went on to blame gaming, social media, and ‘niche online spaces’ in a rather long-winded and sanctimonious thread we won’t bore you with.

    What we will share with you is Daniel Schmidt’s thread-reply TO the good doctor since you know, he’s 18 and only 5 years ago he was himself a white, middle school boy.

    Check this out.


    (Unboxxed again. I've shown the young man's many tweets in a single narrative.)


    I'm an 18-year-old white male. I was in middle school only 5 years ago.

    I think I can offer some perspective on
    @dannagal's thread.

    Yes, young white males increasingly identify as right-wing.

    But why?

    From my experience, here's what's really happening:

    Thought experiment:

    Imagine you’re an 8th-grade boy. You’re beginning to be told by teachers, the media, and maybe your parents that you’re privileged because you’re a boy. It’s a basic truth, you're told.

    But this just makes you confused. You start asking yourself questions.

    If boys are privileged, why do the girls in my class tend to get better grades?

    Why are there more girls than boys in my advanced classes?

    Why are the girls more well-behaved and focused?

    Why are some of the girls preparing for college applications already?

    By the time you get to high school, your confusion only grows.

    Your friend, who used to go to church with you, has become addicted to porn. Another friend, whose parents have recently divorced, has started using drugs.

    Your friends start appearing unmotivated and demoralized.

    Meanwhile, the girls at your school continue to be over-represented in honors classes, get better test scores and grades, obtain more leadership positions, and participate in more extracurriculars.

    But you're still repeatedly told that boys are privileged. How could this be?

    Then, when college acceptances come out, you notice many more girls than boys get into top universities. More girls are going to college in general, for that matter.

    But for some reason, all you hear is that girls are underrepresented in higher education. It's confusing.

    When you search for scholarships to apply to, you find hundreds that are only open to women.

    When you tour college campuses, you hear how proud the school is to have student organizations like Women in Law, Women in Business, and Women in Science.

    It all becomes too much.

    You start doing research.

    You discover that men are more likely to be homeless, go to prison, become alcoholics, struggle with isolation/loneliness, die of a drug overdose, and commit suicide.

    But all you hear about, for some reason, is something called the “gender pay gap.”

    Eventually, you find out that the only people who seem to talk about the issues facing men—the only people who appear to sympathize with how you feel—are so-called "alt-right" figures like Jordan Peterson.

    You start listening to them. For once, you feel like you're not alone.

    Now imagine you’re an 8th-grade white boy.

    On top of the alienation you experience for merely being a boy, you’re told by teachers, the media, and maybe even your parents that you should feel some form of remorse for being white.

    You're as privileged as it gets, you’re told.

    This doesn’t make much sense to you. Why should you feel bad for being white—something you can’t control?

    This is a question you and your white classmates implicitly know cannot be asked. So instead, all of you submit. Humiliation quickly leads to demoralization.

    As you get older, you feel increasingly unwelcome by society. “Diversity and inclusion" initiatives and never-ending anti-white messaging from the media only make you feel like a burden.

    So you turn to the Internet, where you feel welcome by video games and right-wing forums.

    Younger and younger white males are following this path. They feel they're simply unwelcome by society, and they escape to a select few communities and websites.

    For the first time in America’s history, the founding demographic is dropping out of society in massive numbers.

    Dr. Danna Young’s solution?

    “Inclusive programming and a critical historical lens.”

    It's almost like their goal is to demoralize and demonize young men—the group most likely to challenge our ruling class.

    Know why? Because men have value, and women don't add much value, so there's been war on boys and men, for a long time. These insane people really want to destroy men. Very despicable.

    He said “I think almost every white middle school boy is in the alt-right pipeline
    At which point, "alt right" simply means "male".

    It's similar to 'racist'. All white people are racist. Only white people are racist. It follows that 'racist' simply means 'white'. The two words identify the same group of people.

    Let's see who this woman is:

    Dr. Danna Young actually is Dannagal Goldthwaite Young, Ph.D. (Professor of Communication and Political Science at the University of Delaware. Her dissertation written in 2007 was about The Psychology of Satire: Political humor and the construction of political candidates and issues.

    Her academic fields of research are: (1) How political psychology shapes information processing motivations and resulting attitudes, behaviors, and knowledge. (2) Mis- and dis-information, motivared reasoning, and strategies for belief correction in the domains of politics and health. (3) The intersection of entertainment and information, particularly the psychology of political satire and its role in the political world.

    During the 2012 election, she worked with FlackCheck.org to to debunk inaccurate political claims through satire and parody.

    Some of her publications are:

    a) Singal, J. (2016, Sept 7). The Personality Characteristic that Predicts Transphobia. New York Magazine.

    b) Baillargeon, S. (2016, Oct 22). Les humorists, nouveaux chiens de garde de la demoratie americane? Le Devoir.

    --> French to English translation = Comedians, the new watchdogs of American democracy?

    c) Akpan, N. (2016, Dec 5). The Very Real Consequnces of Fake News Stories andyou’re your Brain Can’t Ignore them. PBS Newshour.

    d) Young, D.G., Jamieson, K. H., Poulsen, S., & Goldring, A. (2019). Fact-Checking Effectiveness as a Function of Format and Tone: Evaluating FactCheck. org and FlackCheck. org. Journalism & Mass Communication Quarterly, 95(1) 49 – 75.

    e) Lambe, J., Young, D., Bleakley, A., Crowley, J. P., & Silk, K. (2021). Predictors of Anti-Asian Xenophobia During Covid-19: Towards Developing Targeted Intervention Campaigns.Journal of Hate Studies, 17(1).

    f) Young, D.G., Rasheed, H., Bleakley, A., & Langbaum, J. B. (2022). The politics of mask-wearing: Political preferences, reactance, and conflict aversion during COVID. Social Science & Medicine, 114836.

    She entered "Phi Beta Kappa" in 1997 and she is also an improvisational comedian, performing regularly with the improv comedy troupe, ComedySportz Philadelphia, since 1999.

    Her current book project, Wrong: How Identity Fuels Misinformation and How to Fix it, is under development with JHU Press.


    It is pretty obvious for me who she is, what she does and why she says what she is saying...
    "One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
    One Ring to bring them all and
    in the darkness bind them
    In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."

    An 18-year-old explains why young white men are becoming radicalized

    Daniel Schmidt, a University of Chicago freshman, remembers his middle school years and his journey through high school.

    Brief excerpt: "When you search for scholarships to apply to, you find hundreds that are only open to women. When you tour college campuses, you hear how proud the school is to have student organizations like Women in Law, Women in Business, and Women in Science."

    The comments are worth reading, too.

    Q: How does this apply to us?
    A: Thanks to blatant anti-male bias, our numbers are growing and will continue to do so.

    On the eve of Independence Day in America, I content myself with the knowledge that one of my forefathers probably shot one of Spooky's forefathers.

    I'm out. Peace.

    Blame it until you're able to frame it.
