Not sure. Sounds like something the Feminazis came up with.

When my masculinity turns on a female and then she finds out I'm not interested.

I don't know the formal definition but it can be found at Baylor University.

Unlike Trump, Obama not only sees women as equals, but chose a strong, smart, educated, outspoken woman for his wife. Unlike Trump, although Obama is smart and accomplished, he doesn't strut, brag or belittle. Unlike Trump, who derides crying as weakness, Obama has been affected to the point of tears, and isn't shy about it. While Trump has been accused of actual violence toward women, it's pretty certain that Obama has never resorted to that. While Trump seems to have no leisure interests except the retro masculine attention to sports, Obama has cultural interests that include art, theater, and books. While Trump is so terrified and insecure about not always appearing macho, Obama was willing to risk derision in choosing, for instance, to sing "Amazing Grace."

6 pages and no examples of "toxic masculinity" only a google definition?

Masculinity is under assault by the Left. I feel sorry for young men.

In my extensive experience, men are more aggressive, boisterous, team oriented, competitive, and compartmental than women. Also, in my experience they are less verbal, emotional, and introspective than women. Masculinity is different than femininity. The Progressives want to deny DNA, what men are, and label males being males "toxic". That is cruel and harmful to males. Males have amazing innate qualities.

Correct - the left wants to build an army of Stepford fairies by convincing them they are not real men.

"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 fromemotional vulnerability to simply not being hypersexual – are the means by which your status as “man” can be taken away." https://goodmenproject.com/featured-...eing-a-man-dg/

That seems like an interesting article. Men are cool. They come in many flavors. I have liked many and married one. It's when men are denigrated for not being "manly" enough by some that toxic masculinity comes in. My husband isn't into sports. Does that automatically make him less of a man? It would, to some. That level of toxicity is what this means.
