While scrolling on social media last week, I came across an eye-opening post which showed the female empowerment sayings but with the male/female pronouns reversed.
When you read it, it is quite mindblowing and terrifying. Have a read…
Hits you hard, doesn’t it.
Just have a think about this for a moment.
In reading these, we can see how much pressure we put on men to keep women happy. It’s not simply be a good person; it’s fix all of my problems but don’t you dare assume you can fix them or I even want you to, be perfect but don’t expect me to be, don’t be sensitive but don’t be too strong because that’s tantamount to abusive, don’t be feminine but for God’s sake, don’t be masculine because that’s toxic as fuck..and if you do anything other than this, you’re expendable.
Why do women think it is now perfectly reasonable to claim masculinity is toxic when these type of female empowerment sentiments are rife. Toxic masculinity my ass. I wouldn’t be a man for anything.
