Toxic masculinity is a thing. I didn’t make it up. The idea that men are taught harmful things from birth and the impact of those lessons has been an ongoing area of study. Cmon now, I know it’s tempting to dismiss it as hysterical feminism, but maybe do a Google search?
I’m constantly surprised that men are so reactionary to this. I mean, don’t you want to offload some of the burden for your shitty behaviour on social expectations and cues?
