I suspect the part you’re missing is that magnitude guides terminology. If one man kills another, it’s a murder. When many die, it’s a mass shooting. When thousands or millions of the same race die, it’s genocide. With me so far?

So when men are attacking women in those numbers, someone decided to call it toxic masculinity. I didn’t invent the name.

Honestly, I wish they’d chosen a different name for what’s happening — because if the “name” for what’s happening didn’t include the word “masculinity” far less men would have their faces in a knot.

Doesn’t matter what I say, you’re going to insult me anyway, so there’s not much point here. Thanks for reading, though. :)
