‘Rick and Morty’ and The Rise of The ‘I’m a Piece of Shit’ Defense
Rick is far from a role model, but I doubt his legion of toxic fans see him as one. Instead they’re familiar with a pain that runs parallel to his, and they like his reasons for suffering: his chaotic brilliance, his antisocial bile, and his fatal eagerness to prove that he’s always right. By taking up this mantle, they obscure or aggrandize the faults that truly plague them and miss out on the meta-commentary: were Rick to stop diagnosing himself long enough to reckon with these inner demons, there would be no show. Which, if I’m not mistaken, is exactly what they’re complaining about right now.

The Anger of the White Male Lie – Ijeoma Oluo – Medium
In closing he puts his full name and title. He’s a woodcarver and personal trainer. And, apparently, expert on race and gender studies.

Somebody needs to stop telling these white boys that they can be anything they put their mind to.

The Behavioral Ecology of Male Violence
My argument here is that homicide and warfare are very much ‘natural’ behaviors, often tied to male fitness interests; however, such behaviors are sensitive to socioecological cues, and their prevalence can vary significantly across and within societies. Even among chimpanzees, we see significant variation in rates of lethal violence between different communities, even for those located near each other.

An important strength of the behavioral ecology approach to understanding human behavior is that it goes beyond more narrow ideas rooted in genetic determinism or social constructionism. Violence is not ‘innate’ in the sense of being predictably and rigidly determined by genes alone, nor is it the arbitrary result of socialization or cultural learning. Yet violence is nonetheless rooted in human biology, particularly in sex differences between males and females, and the prevalence of violence can vary substantially across and within cultures due to socioecological factors.

In understanding the cross-cultural trends, as well as accounting for the variation, we can better understand both why males everywhere are, on average, more violent than females, as well as how best to reduce the prevalence of violence within our own societies.

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.”
