Duke University Piloting Cult Brainwashing for Men

Written by Joe Scudder

It takes special effort to “destabilize masculine privilege” and cult brainwashing to inculcate an “intersectional feminist” viewpoint.

More and more, almost everything about colleges and Universities seems closer to cult brainwashing than education, science, or logic. Feminism and LGBTQ ideologies are more like cults than like forms of scholarship or even philosophies. Students are indoctrinated in an intense environment.

And then we see these institutions constructing even more intense environments to create even greater conversions.

Thus, Campus Reform reports, “Duke recruits men for program to fight ‘toxic’ masculinity.

Duke University is recruiting male students for a nine-week program that pledges to “destabilize masculine privilege” and “interrogate masculinity.”


Over the course of the nine-week program, men will participate in weekly discussion groups conducted through an “intersectional feminist lens,” with the hope of helping male students learn an “intersectional understanding of masculinity” and creating “spaces to destabilize masculine privilege.”

Organizers warn that the program isn’t for the faint of heart, explaining that the discussion groups will make men feel “vulnerable” and “will be challenging,” and should thus be “taken seriously.”

Notably, the application for the program, which closes Wednesday, asks students to describe how “privilege…operates to create inequality on Duke’s campus” and list their preferred gender.
