• Meryl Streep suggests we stop using
term ”toxic masculinity." It's harmful to
boys. Plus, she says "women can be
pretty f***ing toxic." She's right.
Meryl Streep doesn't agree with the term
'toxic masculinity'

    • I mean yeah everyone is toxic, but toxic masculinity isn't "he's toxic for acting like a man." Toxic masculinity is when boys are raised thinking they can't cry or talk about their feelings because it's "girly." Being told you can't express your feelings because your a man is toxic

    • The way i understand it, toxic masculinity is when people force the idea on males that they cant feel sensitive emotions typically associated with females and cant partake in hobbies that are considered "girly" (ex. Shaving, beauty routines, art, etc). I never thought it was an anti-male term

Toxic masculinity is things like the belief that "it's not manly to cry" which I'd toxic because it hurts men and makes suicide rates for men so high. There's nothing wrong with being manly or masculine

    • Toxic masculinity can mean gender roles that restrict the kinds of emotions allowable for men to express. If some men prefer to keep their emotions to themselves that’s fine. But men who are more emotional need to be able to express their emotions without society viewing them as “weak”.
