What is Toxic Masculinity?

If we removed the status and compensation from the destructive exploits we classify as “manly,” men would be found to be suffering as much as women. They would be found to be suffering for the same reason: they are in exile from the communion of men and women, which is their deepest connection with the communion of all creatures.” ― Wendell Berry

What is Toxic Masculinity?
"Toxic masculinity refers to a set of attitudes, behaviors, and societal expectations that are often associated with traditional masculinity but are harmful to both men and society as a whole. These traits include the suppression of emotions, aggression, dominance, and the devaluation of traits traditionally considered feminine, such as empathy and vulnerability.

Toxic masculinity can lead to negative consequences such as violence, sexism, homophobia, and the pressure for men to conform to narrow and unrealistic stereotypes of masculinity. It's important to note that toxic masculinity is not inherent to being male; rather, it is a social construct that can be unlearned and challenged through education, awareness, and the promotion of healthier, more inclusive forms of masculinity."
