Join Our Family

The phrase toxic masculinity has gained increasing popularity in our modern times. But it’s also a very loaded term, which is why it’s important to really understand it if we are to use it.

Toxic masculinity is a complex phrase and refers to ideas of “manliness” as a function of domination, homophobia, and aggression. It is the pressure men face to behave in a way that is actually harmful to themselves and others. Toxic masculinity isn’t actually exclusive to men–businesses can be run with a toxic masculine culture, womxn can portray qualities of toxic masculinity, etc. It’s important to recognize that many of the political, social, environmental, and spiritual crises we face today are a product of toxic masculinity.
