toxic maleness, lewd, violence, fash Show more
I think whatever you'd want to call this sick system (of which patriarchy is a part), it represses male sexuality and disguises that repression by massively overfeeding the least humane and most simplistic aspects of it--aspects the guy has to remain within, lest he be gay or "a girl".
I feel like, as guys have actually tried to get better, they've run into the lack of expressive outlets for the deep good stuff. It causes so much depression. And then there are the guys who get repressed to the point where their emotions turn fascistic and their thoughts follow, where sex gets replaced with violence.
I feel like we dont talk enough about why people turn to that. Without that conversation, eradicating fascism and control is going to be impossible.
It's not about getting laid. It's about how forced simplicity creates agonized, hateful little soldiers.
