Toxic masculinity hurts men, but there’s a big difference between women dealing with the constant threat of being raped, beaten, and killed by the men in their lives, and men not being able to cry.

FUCKING THANK YOU.

There are actually loads of conversations to have about the toxic sludge of the gender binary and the strict codifying of gender roles, expression, performance, and the rigid cultural enforcement of them. Which is absolute poison to all of us.

We need to have those conversations, there’s no doubt of that.

What we all need to understand first, though, is this:

All of the sociocultural norms, privilege the masculine. All of the sociocultural norms privilege the masculine. All of the sociocultural norms privilege the masculine.


Women do not have equal rights, opportunities, representation, or access to power.

Men DO have rights, opportunities, representation, and access to power.

Men, in fact, have an utterly DISPROPORTIONATE level of rights, opportunities, representation, and access to power.

The only right women have that is not subject to the whims and caprices of men in power, is the right to vote (in the US.)

The sociocultural norms that privilege the masculine, were created by men, are perpetuated by men, and are enforced by men.

You want greater range of gender expression without being devalued as a man, and that’s swell.

You’re going to have to stop the devaluing of the feminine to get it.

So what are you going to do, to ensure full equality for women and the destruction of the patriarchy?

Why haven’t you been doing it, unprompted?
