Traditional masculinity is “harmful” — but don’t take it from us. That’s the new verdict of the American Psychological Association. We discuss the APA’s new guidelines on counseling for men and boys, as well as the ideological shift behind it. Plus: President Trump’s policy in Syria seems to be in flux. Las month, he announced U.S. troops would be withdrawing, but now the timeline seems longer. Heritage Foundation Middle East expert Jim Phillips unpacks what Trump’s goals in Syria are, and how they can best be achieved.
