    Toxic Masculinity

    Molyneux put forth an interesting point:

    If men are toxic after 2 generations of raising by women through: single motherhood, daycare, school teachers being all women, then masculinity is not environmental and can't be fixed.

    But if it is environmental, then men are toxic because they've been raised by women.


    FWD to 1:04:00



    Who wants flaunt their superior reasoning by chopping his argument apart?

    Alternatively, who wants to spew ad hominems to rally the mob? (Don't everyone rush in at the same time)

    I believe the 'operative' word here is "if"....as in "If" men are toxic....according to some guy on the internet.....

    One that's well known for his divisiveness and intolerance for those outside his own Tribe....


    Please allow for a personal definition of 'toxic' as it relates to Human Beings. We all know these folks....we encounter them all the time in our daily lives....and if OPEN to the experience...can actually develop the capacity to detour/deflect the life 'suckers' encountered and instead focus on attracting the 'seekers'.....

    Call it our innate 6th sense if you want (or not), but It works and can be evidenced best when in close proximity with people of all kinds, occupying the same space...(certainly, Everyone has 'felt' this phenomena, no?)...

    However, it doesn't work so well on the internet.... as I've found out first hand....

    Basically, IMO...a Toxic Human is One who we instinctively know and can 'feel' is sucking our life's energy from us the more time we spend with them.....as opposed to those whom 'enrich' us and other's with their very presence, their encouragement and their grace.....by 'giving' their energy to us....

    If you watch the video at the time specified, you will see he reads a "trending" news article similar to this one:

    GOP Lawmaker Threatens UW-Madison Funding Over 'Toxic Masculinity' Program

    Molyneux is not saying men are toxic, he is quoting and challenging those who are.

    Toxicity isn't bound to gender and labeling it as such just creates more toxicity.
