what's the rapey noise study™, you ask? great question!

it's a (not good) study about interacting with a computer using your brain by focusing on a noise while other noises are playing.... [look ma, no hands!...]

1. Toxic masculinity killed 25 people
2. State negligence and refusal to invest in the train system continues to kill #Egyptians
Clearly, the long-running neglect by successive #Egyptian regimes of the rail network has claimed too many lives. And re yesterday’s tragedy, the long-running refusal to confront patriarchy & toxic masculinity - on state and street level - will also continue to claim lives.
A fight between 2 men killed 25 people. When I write or talk about feminism and the need to dismantle patriarchy, I hear “This isn’t the time!” When is the time? Men who benefit from patriarchy don’t care about its toll on others. It took a toll on 25 people yesterday. #Egypt

Remember man who shot dead 2 women at a yoga studio,injured 5, and killed himself? An investigation has found he “planned the attack for months and had...a documented disdain for the opposite sex.”Does such misogyny qualify as terrorism? nytimes.com/2019/02/12/us/… #ToxicMasculinity
3 month’s before the mass shooting, Scott Beierle “shared a link to his website “Path of Defiance” with a childhood friend & his wife,who was so disturbed by the content — it included songs about the rape and torture of women — that she shared it with the FBI.” #ToxicMasculinity
“If I can’t find one decent female to live with, I will find many indecent females to die with. If they are intent on denying me life, I will have no choice, but to deny them life,” a document recovered from a hotel room where Beierle had been staying, said. #ToxicMasculinity

Reminder that the "journalist" recording this, interrupting and talking over a cis lesbian trying to give a talk is Michael Conroy of #ThisManBoxIsNoGood Their idea of a male "feminist activist" who speaks against toxic masculinity. Again, beyond parody.
I find it disturbing he is allowed into schools when he clearly has no idea about safeguarding trans kids. What will his "lessons" on toxic masculinity involve when he is so trans hostile? Not to mention hypocritical when he speaks over and dismisses women.
#ThisManBoxIsNoGood
#toxicMasculinity is a big problem, and Michael Conroy displays some of its worst features.

Alright - are you a man who's offended by the #GilletteAd? Thinking of doing the #gilletteboycott? Think the add portrays all men as awful?

No you don't (he said, diplomatically not calling you a fucknuckle), and I can prove it. 1/
Let's start with any dads out there, or people like me who want to be dads - who look forward to it, who've been thinking about it forever.

If you're like me, you've probably grown up (as a kid) imagining what kind of dad you'd be. How you'd treat your Sons. Daughters.

2/
Maybe you think about what you're going to do when your son starts dating. What the talk is you're going to give him. Maybe you've got the conversation planned. Do you buy him a box of condoms, or do you let him find them?

Maybe you warn him about trouble, heartbreak.

#Gillette Where this commercial goes wrong is with the virtue signaling and assumption that masculinity in and of itself toxic and abusive. This is #ThirdWaveFeminism at it's finest. #3WF is not accepting of anything less in a man than psychological & emotional castration ...
#Gillette #3WF

The fact that a man has a penis is offensive and construed as #ToxicMasculinity. The only way men escape this #LeftistCult #3WF label is
to wear a pussy hat and be submissive to all women regardless of your sexual
orientation. But pls understand....
#Gillette #3WF

the #ToxicMasculinity label has nothing to do with
abuse/sexism/me too/rape. It's about perpetuating the victim mentality of third wave feminist in the leftist cult. The psychological message is "all me
are inherently toxic/abusive so all women are victims"...

What happens to boys when you tell them that masculinity is toxic?

“First off, why are we even talking about “toxic masculinity”? The crime rates in the United States, in North America more broadly, have fallen 50% in the last 25 years.

#ToxicMasculinity
That includes pretty much every category of violent crimes. So the term itself is terribly defined. I think it’s appalling that faculties of education are pushing this sort of nonsense, and I think that if your kids are exposed to that kind of idiotic, social justice, pseudo...
education, that you should pull them out of the schools, because they’re not being educated, they’re being propagandized. There is also no evidence that we construct our identities as masculine feminine by being expressly taught them by teachers, almost all of that is learned

OK, Twitter. Pour the tea. It’s time to talk about #ToxicMasculinity and the #myth of the #AlphaMale . You ready? I got my tea right here. It’s green tea spiked with whiskey, honey, garlic, mint, and wasabi because it’s going to be that kind of thread. Here we go.
First off, let’s deal with this #AlphaMale nonsense. Take a quick look in the mirror. Are you a wolf, a chimpanzee, a gorilla, or a bonobo? Are you a chicken? Are you a large herd animal, like a horse or a bighorn sheep? No? OK, then you’re probably not an alpha anything.
Alpha males, which distinguish themselves based on physically dominating behaviors DO exist in gorilla and chimpanzee societies. But guess what doesn’t exist in those societies? Higher-order organizational structures such as governments, militaries, or police forces...

You voted for those people, America. They represent you.
-The majority of white American women voters vote GOP —> Grassley and the all-male Senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
-There has never been a woman GOP Senator on that committee. It is 2018. #KavanaughHearings
It is 2018. These are the GOP Senators on the Judiciary Committee.
- Old white men - average is 62, Grassley is 85.
- A majority of white American women voters vote GOP. They are footsoldiers of the white supremacist patriarchy that hurts us all.
#KavanaughHearings
It is 2018.
- Regardless of how you vote, as a white American, white supremacy works in your favour.
- But if you’re a white woman, patriarchy does not.
I urge all white American women to remember that and to fight it by fighting gendered racism. #KavanaughHearings

Fellow men, I want to share with you a truth. If you express non-platonic interest in a woman and she rejects that interest, it will hurt. Here's what a man does next: he lets that go and moves on. #ToxicMasculinity 1/?
It's okay to recognize to yourself that being rejected stings. Feel your feelings. We're allowed to do that. Being hurt, however, does not last. Being hurt grants you no right of revenge. A boy throws a tantrum. A man lets it go and moves on. #ToxicMasculinity 2/?
We are failing on so many levels by not teaching boys how to be men, to offer our feelings honestly and to accept rejection gracefully. A man accepts rejection as a thing that happens, because we respect those to whom we offer our feelings. #ToxicMasculinity 3/?

Let’s talk about #ToxicMasculinity.

1. Men are by nature conquerors. We want to win. We don’t want participation trophies. We want to do our best and reap the rewards. There is nothing wrong with this.
2. Manhood is an elite club. It means you have learned the important lessons of denying your narcissistic tendencies to provide for the people you love. There is nothing wrong with this.
3. Men aren’t usually cuddly by nature. When we have a genuine affection for another guy, we shake hands, pull it into a short hug with back pats. We’re brothers. There is nothing wrong with this.

Recently, @michaelianblack tweeted + wrote in @nytimes about “suffocating, outdated” systems of masculinity helping drive the epidemic of mass school shootings. As folks who explore #toxicmasculinity in school quite a bit we thought we might expand on this topic further. [1/11]
From ’95-’15 there were 31 mass school shootings. Each shooter was male & all experienced challenges to their performance of masculinity, through homophobia & other forms of gender policing. The response? To prove their tormentors wrong & assert control (Farr, 2017). [2/11]
We know that homophobia, sexism, & gender policing are still prevalent in schools, though individual acts of bullying are somewhat on the decline. Unfortunately, overall, educators’ intervention in these incidents is also on the decline... [3/11]
