Comment on the APA Guidelines for the Treatment of Boys and Men

Beware the Ideologues in Psychologists’ Clothing The American Psychological Association (APA) recently released their Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Boys and Men (paralleling, in principle, their 2007 guidelines for girls and women). It manages to be simultaneously predictable, reprehensible, infuriating and disheartening — no mean feat for a single document.

Some thoughts on (and an offer) for the New Year

A very old idea and a very new and practical application (1) Mesopotamia: Emperor and Gods The idea that the old year dies and is renewed with the new is very ancient. I thought I might write about that a bit today, as a prodroma to the offer my

Letters: From a Mother of Teens and a Few Young Men

Over the last few years, I have received many tens of thousands of emails. I stopped even trying to keep up in about February or so of 2017. But I read them from time to time, and often feel that it would be better to read and answer more.

The Gender Scandal: Part One (Scandinavia) and Part Two (Canada)

PART 1: SCANDINAVIA Over the last few weeks, I have been in Oslo, twice; Helsinki, twice; Stockholm, twice; and Copenhagen, once. One of the trips to Stockholm was limited to press interviews and television (see here). The other six trips were part of my 12 Rules for Life tour, which

12 Rules Tour: Missive from Cambridge

The last two days in Cambridge were relentless, but in the best possible way. Tammy (my wife, who travels with me, and carefully ensures that I know where I am going now and what I am doing next) and I flew in early in the morning from Amsterdam after

Notes on a dream in Oslo

So it’s 2:39 AM in Oslo, Norway. I woke up in a too-hot hotel room out of a fitful nightmare, which I can only partially remember. I haven’t had a dream that I could recall even that clearly in a very long period of time.

Trouble at the University of Amsterdam

The Dutch publisher of 12 Rules for Life made arrangements for me to speak at the University of Amsterdam on October 31 to about 300 students, hosted by the U of A's Room for Discussion. I am somewhat loath, let’s say, to appear at a University, feeling about it much

Notes on my Kavanaugh Tweet

This week (October 5, 2018), I responded to a Twitter thread consisting of a conversation between Bret Weinstein, the American biologist and evolutionary theorist who was once (before the controversy) a professor at Evergreen College, and his brother Eric Weinstein, Managing Director at Thiel Capital, and the man who coined
