Coach Carter has been using Mondays to teach his players lessons on how to truly be a man. The players learn everything from hoe to tie a tie to shaking hands and changing a tire.

The young men have said, in their own words, how valuable they think these lessons have become.

OF COURSE, critics have come forward and claimed this is teaching young men the dreaded "toxic masculinity".

Yes, my eyes are really ROLLING.

What isn't toxic masculinity?

More and more, we, or some, are trying to take everything that makes the sexes different out of the equation.

WHAT IS THE HARM IN US BEING DIFFERENT?

That's what makes life so interesting and good.

Who wants to live in a world with everyone exactly the same?

How boring is that?

Thank God for the way coach Carter and Athens High School stood strong in the face of a tiny group of critics.

I have seen many cave in the face of any criticism. It's time for more of us to stand up against these cancel culture mobs when we know it is just wrong.

Teaching young males how to be men when they get older is a wonderful thing that needs to be applauded.

Coach Carter should get an award for doing what he's been doing these last few years.

The only way these things will ever stop, is for people to stand up and let their voices be heard.
