    Being a sleazy arrogant creep I suppose.

    Toxic masculinity by the way is often combined with effeminacy.

    HARVEYWOOD again. The source of a lot of toxic behaviour in the name of masculinity.

    • A 14-year old girl is found sexually assaulted and murdered. A 13-year old boy is charged with the crime.
    • Two men are questioned about the unsolved murder of a German backpacker 30 years ago.

    Farther afield:
    • A "school shooter" who killed ten pupils at a Texan school is said to have been pushed "over the edge" when a girl he was repeatedly importuning for a date humiliated him in front of the class, for what she called harassment. He shot her and nine others dead.
    • In the same week in Texas, an estranged husband shot dead the new partner of his ex-wife, and the 3 children they had together. Before he committed suicide, he told her he wanted her to live and suffer.

    Also:
    • A men went on a rampage in Toronto running over 10 pedestrians with a van, claiming afterwards to be an "incel" (involuntary celibate) outraged because with the commodification of sex, the rich elites were dominating the sexual partner stakes.
    • This man had been "inspired", it is said, by another mass killing by an "incel" in California in 2014.

    You don't need to be a psychologist to see there is something corrupt and toxic at the heart of these symptoms. Is it really the commodification of sex? Does pornography and incorrect male expectation have a role? Is it female liberation versus male insecurity, driven by resentment at what was once easy entitlement now frustrated?

    These are extreme cases, but you cannot help feeling there is something out of sync in the sexual protocol between men and women. Men and women have been having sex for children, for companionship and mutual pleasure since the dawn of time. Is it all going horribly wrong, or are these symptoms just hiccups at the start of a new era?
    Americans shoot eachother all the time and often for extremely petty reasons. Low IQs, access to weaponry and most of them are off their tits on prescribed meds; uppers, downers, mood changers, anti depressants, opium based pain killers, the works. It is a violent dystopian society, if 'toxic masculinity' has something to do with a % of their colossal rate of homocides big woop. Their real problem is the guns, drugs and substandard education.

    On the more serious side.

    But but but....

    (on a nice topical point!)

    females have aborted almost 2 billion "children" ... 2 billion, one of those 2 billion could have changed the world for the better.

    Women have men beat by a long shot

    Abortion Statistics - Worldometers

    we're not even 6 months into the year and females have already murdered 6m+ future humans.

    The women of Ireland won't stand for this. Mostly male TDs off to the beaches on The Med to ogle topless women instead of sitting all summer in Dail Eireann to bring in Savita's law.

    Certain elements in the mainstream media love to hype up occasional attacks.

    This alarmist hype is about making people feel alone, weak, fearful and powerless.

    can we expect a toxic femininity thread and a toxic blackness thread to follow?

    That is what happens in a mongrel nation where every nutter has access to weapons.
