RUSH: Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada, has said that he is raising his daughters to be aware of “toxic masculinity.” Do not doubt me on this stuff, folks. I’ve had people say, “Rush, you know, you really sound off the wall when you mentioned that there’s this mad dash against masculinity.” You better wake up, folks. Your daughters are being taught this stuff.
Now the prime minister of Canada proudly writes an op-ed about how he’s raising his daughters this way. “Why I’m Raising My Kids to Be Feminists — In an exclusive essay for MarieClaire.com…” Now, you can talk about Trump all you want, but at least he’s not writing op-eds for Teen Vogue, for crying out loud. “In an exclusive essay for MarieClaire.com, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau” took a break from applying making up and “opens up about wanting his sons to ‘escape the pressure to be a particular kind of masculine that is so damaging to men and to the people around them.
“‘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,'” a premise that’s impossible, by the way, unless you’re talking about before the law. “‘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.”
And he’s teaching his boys about toxic masculinity and how it’s not good.
