Toxic Masculinity...

#1  Postby Keep It Real » Apr 06, 2018 4:12 pm

It's all a bit sexist gender role stereotypes innit?

Does The Only Way is Essex promote 'toxic masculinity'?

Over eight years, The Only Way Is Essex has kept viewers hooked with its glossy brand of real-life drama, served in glamorous locations along with some enviable outfits.

The show's opening disclaimer maintains that "the tans you see may be fake, but the people are all real".

However, the show's apparent reality has made uncomfortable viewing for some fans in the first two weeks of the new series.

Viewers have voiced concerns about the on-screen behaviour of some of the show's biggest stars and the way they treat their partners.

On social media, some have accused cast members James "Lockie" Lock and Myles Barnett of abusive language and behaviour.

I'll repeat the question, as you appear not to have understood it and responded with an irrelevant question.

I know that some people believe there is such a thing as very important/powerful masculinity/femininity, and behave accordingly, adhering, representing and strengthening those stereotypes, and that it's actually a damaging fiction, far moreso than astrology in all likelihood.

Right, so that's not toxic masculinity.

Here's the first thing. Toxic masculinity (which is a widely understood social phenomenon) effects both genders. MRAs have created toxic feminity as a form of false equivalence, that women reinforcing the expectations on men and women created by toxic masculinity is somehow a phenomenon in its own right.
