Judging men for what they earn. Valuing men on what they own. Talking about rich men as ‘marriage material’. Pressuring them to work longer, harder and more dangerous hours.

You know, I’m starting to think Chris Rock is right – ‘a man is only loved under the condition that he provide.’

But still – in a world that hates men – the epidemic of male suicide, that is destroying the lives of young men, is always a good opportunity to call them ‘toxic’.

A chance to spew ignorance and hatred onto those who need help, and to blame them for their own suffering.

If you think crying is a complete solution, you are wrong, if you think asking men to talk about the problems that you’re unwilling to accept even exist, then you’re now the problem.

A world of men unable to cry is just the outcome of a much larger, systemic problem, for which we need change. Real legislative, political, social and economic change, for men.

So no – Masculinity is not toxic. Our attitude toward it is.
