The Male Power Fantasy (and why Mad Max and Captain Kirk don't fit)
This relates to a theory I have, which is that the archetypal Western Male Hero is James Bond, to the degree that people (Mainly straight white men) start to see every Western Male Hero as James Bond. Which is to say an aggressively masculine, quip-spitting, hyper violent womanizer. The ultimate Male Power Fantasy. A new supermodel love interest (or two) every film, a gun in his hand, and no consequences for his actions.

Dear Fellow Guys....stop hitting on women at work....
If you’re interacting with a human it’s because you want to interact with a human and you want that human to be nice to you. You are paying for their kindness, for their smiles when their feet hurt and their questions about your day when they haven’t had lunch yet. Flirting with customer service workers at work, asking them out when they’re on the clock and paid to make you happy, telling them you think they’re attractive and expecting a gushing response - that’s breaking the rules. That’s a lose-lose situation that you’ve set them up for.

Why Does Dating Men Make Me Feel Like Shit? – Medium
A very very interesting article about one way that Toxic Masculinity hurts women, but also men. Very insightful look at how men feel shame about their own sexual feelings, and so push the responsibility for those feelings onto others in subtle ways ("You're so hot" vs. "I'm very turned on by you").

LRT: okay seriously Morticia and Gomez are an amazing fictional couple and one of the few I actually like in media at. all.
seriously tho this tweet chain about romantic conflict depicted in Western media points out what's missing in a lot of stories

Men caused most of our environmental problems, and now we need to coddle them to save ourselves — Quartz
Fascinating result. Being green is seen as feminine, so American men seem to need to have their masculinity affirmed to make better choices.

More proof that shooting was homegrown, and homophobia.

The role of toxic masculinity in mass shootings
This echoes something I've been seeing for a while. I do wonder if there is a slippery slope thoughtcrime counter argument to be made though.

I think I dodged the worst of this while simultaneously being aware that nerdiness was weird on some level.
