Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are working with an organization that wants to re-write the phrase “boys will be boys” and believes boyhood is “fluid,” and “socially constructed.”The Duke and Duchess of Sussex teamed up with the Global Boyhood Initiative through their foundation Archewell and podcast Archetypes, which aims to break down gender stereotypes and help young boys evolve into “healthy men.”The group claims it aims to encourage boys to “share emotions in healthy ways, accept & connect with others, stand up & speak out against bullying & inequality, and break free from stereotypes.”MEGHAN MARKLE ISN’T ‘BRAVE ENOUGH’ TO ATTEND KING CHARLES’ CORONATION, PRINCESS DIANA’S BUTLER CLAIMS Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have already received their invitation to King Charles’ coronation. (Mark Cuthbert/UK Press)According to the duo’s foundation website, the partnership “works to achieve gender equality and social justice by transforming intergenerational patterns of harm and promoting patterns of care, empathy and accountability among boys and men throughout their lives.”The initiative lists several “resources” on its website, in collaboration with the Sussexes, to offer “a guide for promoting gender equity by fostering positive masculinity in boys and men.”According to a U.K.-based report released by the group, families can be seen as gender “factories,” and parents are able to “gender” their children before they are even born. “Parents may begin gendering their children even before birth based on the identification of external genitalia in scans, including through elaborate ‘gender reveal’ parties and a stream of purchases along gender lines (Kane, 2006; Price and Tayler, 2015),” the pamphlet reads. MINNESOTA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL MUSIC TEACHER CLAIMS ‘THE GOAL’ IS TO CONFUSE STUDENTS ABOUT GENDER: VIDEO Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are working with a charity that believes gender is “fluid” and “socially constructed.” (iStock)”While the family is a place of nurturing and support for many children, it can also be where gender and sexuality are regulated and policed, as many of our interviewees and much research suggest,” it continues. Harry and Meghan have long made “gender equity” a significant focus of their charitable efforts. Months before partnering with the Global Boyhood Initiative last year, the duo announced four organizations would receive grants to promote the effort. “As we cross into Women’s History Month, and ahead of International Women’s Day next week, The Archewell Foundation is announcing a number of non-profit investments in leading organizations working to advance gender equity, build policies that empower women and families, ensure meaningful media representation for women, and provide women with a network of tools and support for gaining employment,” the website reads. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APPThe recipients of the grants included: The Center on Poverty and Inequality at Georgetown University Law Center, National Women’s Law Center, the 19th, and Smart Works.

An international effort to rebuild shark populations officially has begun.Two baby zebra sharks were released in the Raja Ampat Regency of Indonesia earlier this year as the first step in a massive re-wilding project.The new organization, called ReShark, has joined 15 countries and 44 aquariums in an effort to raise zebra sharks in captivity, then release them back into the wild, according to National Geographic.WORLD’S LARGEST, RAREST OCEAN STINGRAYS SPOTTED AND TAGGED IN MOZAMBIQUEReShark aims to release 500 zebra sharks in Indonesian waters within the next five to 10 years.Dr. Erin Meyer, Seattle Aquarium vice president of conservation programs and partnerships, told Fox News Digital in an interview that this is just the beginning of creating a shark resurgence.

Adult zebra sharks are endangered everywhere outside Australia, but there are more than 100 in aquariums around the world. Several aquariums, including Shedd, are letting adults mate and produce eggs, which will be shipped to Indonesia. (David Doubilet and Jennifer Hayes, National Geographic)Meyer added that sharks are “keystone species” within their ecosystems, which means their environments can “collapse” without their “keeping other species in check.”ReShark first launched its initiative in 2020, beginning with the endangered zebra shark.”We know what they eat and we know how to keep them alive.”
