Toxic Masculinity Versus Toxic Feminism

by Toni Williams on October 12, 2017

The other day when the Harvey Weinstein story was first breaking, one of the things that caught my eye (and there were a lot) was the Planned Parenthood 100th Anniversary Party, back in May, where Harvey Weinstein was a guest along with Hillary Clinton. Frontpage Magazine and Daniel Greenfield reported:

At the 100th anniversary of Planned Parenthood, honoring Hillary Clinton, the recently defeated candidate, drinks named “Toxic Masculinity” were being served. Also on the scene was Harvey Weinstein. And Harvey had his thick wallet open to the tune of $100K for the abortion organization.

Planned Parenthood in celebrating it’s 100th anniversary of promoting the murder of innocents, honored Hillary (What Difference Does It Make?) Clinton and served a cocktail named “Toxic Masculinity”. The drink was allegedly made from vodka, strawberry puree and lemon juice. It is pictured below.

Toxic Masculinity at a party celebrating the murder of infants in the womb? How about Toxic Feminism?

Then this happened on twitter. Some female named Abigail Shirley sent out this tweet:

And Clint Black, gorgeous hunk of masculinity, father and husband, answered.

Clint Black, a real man

Our beloved Twitchy captured the essence of this with the classic Southern put down, “Bless Her Heart”.

Oh look, a feminist lumped all men together based on the actions of one Hollywood ‘liberal kingmaker.’ Gotta protect that whole ‘men are evil and should be destroyed’ narrative, right?

Now, I am not Camille Paglia so I couldn’t tell you what wave of feminism we are on this time. Don’t know and don’t care. I know this, that it is an ugly feminism and I don’t mean ugly as in facial beauty, although they are. I mean ugly in thought, word and deed.

What is toxic masculinity? FemMagazine.com has the answers:

Deeply embedded in the patriarchy are the socially constructed norms that define masculinity; think physically strong, unsentimental, and assertive. These descriptions make up the traditional image of men and define the term “toxic masculinity.”

Toxic masculinity refers to society’s expectations of how a traditional male should behave. Ideas related to toxic masculinity have been normalized in society; comments like, “be a man,” “that’s girly,” and “man up” stem from this attitude.

It is important to underline that toxic masculinity relates to the cultural perspective given to masculinity, not the biological traits of the male gender. It is founded upon societal norms that frame cisgender men as the domineering gender, creating harmful stereotypes that incite violence and sexism across cultures. In addition, toxic masculinity disregards non-conforming genders, and imposes gender binarism, the belief that only two genders exist.

There is a lot more but that gives you the gist of it. I am as of this moment declaring war on toxic femininism. I want all daughters, wives, mothers and sisters to stand with me and shout, “Shut up, you unhappy, harpy feminists. We love our men and their masculinity.”

I am a proud Boy Mom. I am also the wife of a man, the daughter of a man, and blessed to have a great man as my father in law, rest in peace. I will not tolerate this any longer.

Buh bye toxic feminists.

Toxic masculinity: behaving like a man while failing to make totally hypocritical and completely insincere paeans to Planned Parenthood, the National Organization for Women and several other accredited victim groups.

I haven’t mugged, murdered, raped or molested anybody, and have stayed married to my wife for 38 years, 4 months and 23 days, but I’m a Catholic (shudder!), pro-life (unacceptable!) and vote against Democrats (burn him at the stake!), so I’m consumed with Toxic masculinity™.

physically strong, unsentimental, and assertive

That you 1) define this as ‘masculinity’ and 2) find problems with it, is a problem with you, not with us.

Also, “unsentimental” is not truly a masculine trait. We are sentimental about things that matter – like patriotism, or our lady doing something for us that we didn’t expect, or not wanting our daughters to grow up and wear a burqa, or watching our kid get married or our kids be born. What we are not is overly emotional in our outward display. There is a huge difference between that and ‘unsentimental’.

I think they are confusing “unsentimental” with “unemotional”. We don’t cry watching Rom-Coms (when we’re forced to watch them), we don’t have an emotional breakdown over minor things (and quite often major things either). In short since men don’t wave their emotions like a banner for the world to see, we’re unsentimental.
No, we just express ourselves differently.

My view of masculinity would be: physically healthy (as possible) and not a weakling, principled (and assertive about it), standing as a bulwark for my family (and all who are unable to defend themselves), providing for myself and my family, not overly emotional, refusing to quit simply because something is difficult, as self-sufficient as possible.

Toxic” masculinity is when one of those goes off the rails and overwhelms some of the others (like principled and bulwark for those unable to defend themselves gets overwhelmed by not a weakling).
