Seven Signs That Your Man’s Masculinity Is Nontoxic
By the New Yorker
1. He carries a tote bag that’s at once pro-environment, pro-feminism, and pro-reading.
2. When he goes into a sports bar to use the bathroom, he buys a glass of white wine to be polite.
3. He openly cries during Pixar movies—even the parts that aren’t sad, just beautiful.
4. He opens doors for women at work, but they’re metaphorical doors, like the ones that lead to promotions.
5. He laughs calmly when called a cuck. He laughs loudly when women are funny. He does not laugh when men are not.
6. He makes references to Kurt Vonnegut because he’s genuinely interested to hear other people’s opinions of Vonnegut’s work. He never makes references to David Foster Wallace.
7. He strictly follows all traffic laws when he plays Grand Theft Auto. His Sims world is a matriarchy. He does not have a Twitter account.
Should this instead be "seven signs your man had an orchidectomy?"
I couldn't stop laughing. One can only hope the New Yorker wrote this tongue-in-cheek. Because if they didn't, it means there's a group of men somewhere who follow traffic laws while playing Grand Theft Auto.
And this is an actual New Yorker article. Because my imagination is so addled with toxic masculinity that I couldn't write it myself.
Who comes to mind when you think of a non-toxic masculinity male icon? I thought of Trudeau and Macron.
