Ten years ago, the idea of a “Men’s Centre” at a University campus would have cued a laugh track. An idea so hilariously petty and anti-progressive that it would’ve barely held up as a comical scheme on a low-budget Canadian sitcom. The dialogue has changed somewhere along the line though, because Simon Fraser University is now being showered with praise for pioneering the concept of a safe space for men. Amidst the celebration, few have stopped to consider that perhaps this isn’t so much a sign of progress as it is the result of current media and internet culture wearing down resistance to a very negative type of thinking. Especially if Bronies wind up being involved.
