Toxic Masculinity Is the True Villain of Star Wars: The Last Jedi
SPOILERS: “Poe's character, while not one of the main protagonists, has even more to do in The Last Jedi. However, while he may be filling the role of the dashing pilot that Han did in the Original Trilogy, director Rian Johnson is using the archetype to say something completely different about heroism, leadership, and—perhaps most importantly—masculinity.”

Insights into Sexism: Male Status and Performance Moderates Female-Directed Hostile and Amicable Behaviour
We hypothesised that female-initiated disruption of a male hierarchy incites hostile behaviour from poor performing males who stand to lose the most status. To test this hypothesis, we used an online first-person shooter video game that removes signals of dominance but provides information on gender, individual performance, and skill. We show that lower-skilled players were more hostile towards a female-voiced teammate, especially when performing poorly. In contrast, lower-skilled players behaved submissively towards a male-voiced player in the identical scenario. This difference in gender-directed behaviour became more extreme with poorer focal-player performance. We suggest that low-status males increase female-directed hostility to minimize the loss of status as a consequence of hierarchical reconfiguration resulting from the entrance of a woman into the competitive arena. Higher-skilled players, in contrast, were more positive towards a female relative to a male teammate. As higher-skilled players have less to fear from hierarchical reorganization, we argue that these males behave more positively in an attempt to support and garner a female player’s attention. Our results provide the clearest picture of inter-sexual competition to date, highlighting the importance of considering an evolutionary perspective when exploring the factors that affect male hostility towards women.

The Stories Of Male Sexual Assault Survivors Need To Be Heard
Contributing to this devastating reality is that for men, almost everything is considered a weakness — inexperience, asking for help, feeling sad, feeling too happy, not expressing anger physically enough, knowing too little, knowing too much, and, especially, not having sex. In this system, women and other non-masculine people are defined as objects and men/masculine people are collectors of these objects; sex is the proof of this collection, which, society dictates, men should strive to make as large as possible. Sex is the goal, a proof of virility.
