If Only Unborn Human Babies Had Feathers

Ultimately, as in so many other ways, we are social creatures by design. 'No man is an island,' as the man said. No matter how well-intentioned you are about making courageous choices, if you surround yourself with cravens, you will make a coward’s choices. You may chalk it up to 'department policy,' or 'well, everyone is doing it,' but at the end of the day, you are making the choice, and those around you are not only facilitating it, they are encouraging it.
In Forging the Hero, I spent a lot of time explaining the concept of innangarð, and that our tribe/clan/community is defined as those who share our values, as evidenced by shared traditions and customs. If you identify as part of a tribe, or 'inner circle of trust,' no matter how lightly, that practices behavior (customs and traditions) that evidence cowardice as a value, then you will succumb to the ease of cowardice.
Don't capitulate to the cultural Marxists, or accept the status quo and the harm it is doing to the next generation in order to be accepted or to avoid trouble. If you act like a cuckservative, you will be recognized as one and deservingly outgrouped by those seeking to build a sane, virtuous community.
As everybody knows, men and women don’t understand each other, so in a context dominated by the latter, whether it’s an elementary school or Harvard, normal male behavior may be deemed “bad” or “toxic.” For this and other reasons, which, however, I don’t have the space to consider here, boys should not spend their days among women authorities. Although it is unlikely to happen, gender segregation seems to be the best single thing we can do to improve our schools. If, on the other hand, we want to continue to tame man, rendering him a docile and compliant worker bee for people who mean nothing to him and vice versa, then the present situation is certainly desirable.
