Great thoughts. I believe both men and women suffer a lot from internalized sexism. It is similar to racism. We are taught myths, then expected to think rationally. I learn things every day which I now realize were quite sexist about my youth. Also, people don’t understand words: a red pill is red. A blue pill is blue. But say “Toxic masculinity” and suddenly a reader thinks you are saying all masculinity is toxic. No, if that’s not what she said, don’t assume that it is!
