One of the most harmful and also false ideas that liberals have introduced to American culture is the idea that gender is nothing more than a “social construct.” Put another way, there’s no real difference between men and women; we just think there are differences because we accept illogical cultural norms that have been passed down through the years.
This is a “the moon is made out of green cheese” grade dumb concept; yet and still this idea undergirds liberal feminism. If a man can do it, then a woman can do it just as well, even if we’re talking about the military, firemen or being a cop. It’s the core concept that allows liberals to try to present transgenderism as a civil rights issue instead of a mental health issue. Undoubtedly, it’s also part of the reason you see so many sad, lost, nearly androgynous young men these days. If being a man doesn’t mean anything, why go through the work of taking on masculine traits?
The sleight of hand that liberals use to promote this obviously foolish idea is to point out that different cultures have different definitions of what constitutes manliness. To many Americans, enduring boot camp and becoming a soldier is a great way to prove your masculinity. To become a man in the Sateré-Mawé tribe, a boy must stick his hand in a glove full of venomous ants with incredibly painful bites and hold it there. On the Greek island of Kalymnos, manhood is proven via deep diving without equipment. Those men consider using diving equipment for safety to be effeminate.
You could be the epitome of manhood in America without ever allowing yourself to be bitten by venomous ants or a man’s man in the Sateré-Mawé tribe without ever deep diving; so doesn’t that mean gender is a social construct?
