Over the last few years I've seen a rising trend from within feminist circles and other places that one of the core issues with society is a "toxic
masculinity". I've always been a nerdy type of guy, I watch anime and I'm a programmer who loves the tech scene, I don't really get into any sports,
especially not sports like football where a bunch of buff dudes run around a field tackling each other. In my school days I very much despised the
jock-type guys who seemed to pride themselves on their masculinity. It was basically a type of toxic masculinity as far as I was concerned.
However, as I have grown older, and I've seen the world overflow with SJW rants about how much men suck, and I'm seeing large swaths of men being
raised as what has been termed "soy boys", and now I can truly understand why masculinity as well as femininity are both very important. Now I'm not
saying some guys aren't mentally predisposed to act more like a girl, sure some guys may feel more comfortable if they dress and act like a women, I'm
not trying to take them away from them, but I find it quite discerning when I see entire generations of boys being raised to hate masculine traits.
Masculinity doesn't have to be this toxic thing, it doesn't need to involve chest bumping and beer drinking. The issue here which annoys me most of
all is that feminists and women in general don't admit to the fact that they prefer masculine men over wimpy little man-boys. This is a simple fact of
life which I have come to understand with experience, although women often claim they want the soft sensitive feminist male, what they really want is
nothing like that, at least not on a physical level, which is why the over-sensitive nice guys often come last, and then develop deep hatred because
they don't know why.
There is nothing wrong with embracing your masculinity and having respect for yourself rather than trying to kiss the feet of everyone around you. I
cannot remember the source, but I read a very good quote some time ago explaining how we cannot help anyone around us without first helping ourselves,
and that's why it's so important to have some self-respect, while being able to show humility at the same time. Masculinity is simply the counter
balance to femininity, they both have their place and we will achieve nothing by fusing them and creating an androgynous society where we're all the
