There's been a LOT of inquiry into the dangers of toxic masculinity that prevents men and boys from having emotionally close friendships.

Young men have *always* been the most violent group. They were just raping and beating their classmates, gfs and wifes, so no one cared.
#himpathy is a thing so i dont understand the whole not garnering a ton of sympathy thing. Violent men are shown in a sympathetic light all the time. The NYT gives Nazis and rapsts puff pieces. The Atlantic regularly publishes victim-blaming and rape apologist content.
the problem isn't lack of sympathy for young violent men.

the problem is that toxic masculinity hurts ALL OF US and sexism has kept us from addressing this because it will undermine the patriarchy system this entire culture is built on

Reply Guy #1. THE LIFE COACH
People who get annoying replies can tag the dude with the appropriate Reply Guy from this thread, and save themselves a pointless debate. That’s the idea anyway.

And some guys seem to take it to heart when you point out that they’re being a cliché.
