Thanks for a great read. I understand how toxic is an adjective, however, we must always take into account people do not hear with reasoned, rational thought. Human beings see and hear through their own filter. People still hear feminism itself as a negative, simply due to a few eons of “fem” being negative, and seen as one sided. We are struggling for a world of equality, and for liberation of men (and women) from violent, toxic conditioning. I have pretty much switched to saying toxic conditioning, because some people can’t hear ‘toxic’ and ‘masculine’ without being triggered.
