What Toxic Masculinity?

There’s a war on men. They’re demonized. They’re told they’re worthless. They’re told they don’t have a say in what happens to their unborn children.

We’re currently in the third wave of feminism. This is not a good thing.

Back in the 1920’s women started to speak up. They demanded equal rights. They wanted to vote. They wanted a say in what happened within the government. They wanted equal rights to own property. They were successful.

Second wave feminism came in the 60’s. Women wanted more equality. They achieved the equal pay act in 1963. (There is no gender pay gap. If you want paid more, don’t get a degree in interpretive dance art.) They brought domestic abuse and marital rape to light.

Unfortunately, they also brought about the legalization of abortion. (Another post for another time.)

During these times women wanted to be equal to men. To work. Have their voices heard. To be their own people. And they achieved this.

Hello 1990’s and third wave. Let’s welcome this wave with whiny entitled snowflakes. They want individualism. WTF? Fine. You already had that. Whine more.

2008… Fourth wave. What…. What don’t women have now? We can vote. Drive. Inherit property. Own businesses. Be doctor’s. CEO’s. There’s equal pay. We’re in the government. Running for president. What. The. Fuck are we denied?

Now, it’s not about what women don’t have. It’s not about equality as much as the feminist say it is. No. Above all, it’s about demasculinizing men. They want to get rid of anything masculine. So many of my fellow women address in the mindset that women don’t need men. They can be single mothers. Men are just detrimental to everyone’s health.

Well, let’s look at some statistics about that.

As of 2014, 23.6% of children grew up without their fathers.

In 2011, children living in female-headed homes with no spouse present had a poverty rate of 47.6%. This is over four times the rate for children living in married couple families.

Fatherless girls are 7x more likely to be teenage mothers.
71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average

63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average.

Women are crying violation and harassment when men simply say hello.

Women have gone from seeking equality to wanting to destroy men. They seek beta males who cower and agree with everything they say. They no longer want partnership in marriage. They don’t want marriage. They expect men to be okay when they have affairs. They want men to be inferior.

That’s not what America is about. We’ve come a long way over the years. Everyone is equal. Everyone has equal opportunity.

I will continue to be in a marriage where my husband and I are a team. Most days we’re 50/50. We support each other. Sometimes it’s 60/40 and one of us has to pick up the slack. Sometimes one of us has a bad day, but instead of running to divorce lawyers we work on our problems. We remember the vows we took.

Feminism is no longer about equality. It’s not toxic masculinity.

It’s toxic feminity.

  1. Things are completely out of balance. A man can get arrested today because he tells a lady that’s a nice dress she is wearing. Or her hair looks nice. Men aren’t allowed to be gentlemen anymore. A few years back I held a door at a department store for a lady who had an armload of packages. She yelled at me “I can open doors for myself !!!” I said excuse me for trying to be polite. If looks could kill I would have been dead.
