What is Toxic Masculinity?

Who came up with this term? The same person who who came up with political correctness?


It seems this is coming up more frequently now.

Re: What is Toxic Masculinity?

It's a made up term by radical feminists to normalize their hatred of anything with a dick.

Also there's no such thing as toxic masculinity without toxic femininity.

The correct term is supposed to be Hegemonic masculinity.

It is pretty incredible to see an attempt to dismiss toxic masculinity as made up using actual toxic masculinity.

Bravo, sir.

I think it's another term to describe guys that are macho assholes.

We let them read and then we gave them the vote and property rights and now all hell is breaking loose. Bitches, right? [/sarcasmfont]

Pretty much anyone who goes off about being an alpha, and disdains soyboys and cucks.

Hmm, I would think toxic femininity would be the desire to hold women up to impossible (outdated) standards of femininity. Like, barefoot and pregnant, seen but not heard, "get in the kitchen and bake me a pie", no pants, etc ...

I suppose you see some of that in some of the more strict religious cults.

This isn’t good for your therapy. Even participating in this thread.

It's not but my comment is truthful and actually pretty tame.

Re: What is Toxic Masculinity?

What We Mean When We Say, “Toxic Masculinity” by Colleen Clemens 12/2017



Toxic masculinity is a narrow and repressive description of manhood, designating manhood as defined by violence, sex, status and aggression. It’s the cultural ideal of manliness, where strength is everything while emotions are a weakness; where sex and brutality are yardsticks by which men are measured, while supposedly “feminine” traits—which can range from emotional vulnerability to simply not being hypersexual—are the means by which your status as “man” can be taken away.

Bluelitespecial: After nearly 35 years in the LGBT community, may I just say, you'd make a lot better gay guy than a straight guy. If you're a gay guy who hates women, life's a lot less frustrating for you than if you're a straight guy who hates women, which you more than obviously do.

As for "toxic masculinity," Colleen Clemens via count dooku nailed it.

P.S. And yes, I know, lesbians have a reputation as being man haters. This particular lesbian is not.

I have plenty of respect for your opinion Vibs, but I don't hate women I just know I'm less than human to most of them.

Likely, that is not because you have a dick, but because they think you are one.

Honestly Blue you shouldn't even be in here on this thread. You have made great progress in your journey, and I hate to see you slip.
