Trump and toxic masculinity.

June 28, 2019

The LA Review of Books has a hilarious article on toxic masculinity titled World War II’s Poisonous Masculine Legacy.  The problem with World War II, according to the book, is a generation of men fought in the war and then supported families without complaining.  This set the wrong example for future generations of men:

To understand how Sexton defines “toxic masculinity,” picture the semi-fictional “Greatest Generation.” They grew up in poverty, emerged victorious in war, and provided for their families (if they were white of course), often earning enough to buy a house and a car from one job in a manly industry like manufacturing. And they did it without complaining.

But a bit further down we get to the real problem facing our society, which is of course men at Trump’s rallies:

Sexton’s ideas about addiction and performance drawn from his experience at Trump rallies leads us to a potentially surprising conclusion. Some of the racist, sexist, and homophobic vitriol spewed at Trump rallies is performative, spewed by men who did not believe it, or at least with that intensity, but were afraid their masculinity would be questioned if they did not pose as an angry, hateful Trump supporter, who doesn’t care about your feelings.

You truly can’t make this stuff up.
