The War of the Genders - Toxic Masculinity Vs Toxic Femininity

The ongoing debate surrounding Toxic Masculinity and Toxic Femininity, The War of the Genders as I call it, has become a hot topic of discussion in recent years. These terms refer to the negative traits and behaviors associated with the traditional gender roles that are ingrained in our society. Toxic masculinity is stereotypes associated with Males such as Aggression, Dominance, and Emotional Suppression. Toxic Femininity, on the other hand, is stereotypes associated with Females such as Manipulation, Dependency, and Emotional Volatility.


In my opinion, Toxic Masculinity and Femininity are both problematic, and we need to work towards eliminating these gender stereotypes. Both men and women should be allowed to express themselves freely without fear of being judged based on their gender. It is essential to raise awareness about the harmful effects of toxic masculinity and toxic femininity. My own mother faced this issue when she took martial arts at the age of 14 and neighbors alongside friends of her parents (parents who supported her) made up redundant arguments comprising of Toxic Femininity to bring her morale down by saying that she may seriously get hurt and disfigure her face and then it’ll be a pain to get her married.


Controversial Figure Andrew Tate on social media has taken up the responsibility of educating and explaining these issues in today’s society to his fan following, which consists mostly of young boys and while I am not a Tate Apologist, even I agree with him on this quote of his; "Toxic masculinity is not being a man. It's being a boy and not taking responsibility for your actions. It's not about being tough or dominant; it's about being a self-centered jerk who doesn't care about others."


The Internet has had a significant impact on the issue at hand, with memes and other internet phenomena perpetuating harmful stereotypes. It is crucial to recognize that these memes are not completely harmless and can contribute to the normalization of toxic behavior, for example there are countless “Sigma Male/Giga Chad” memes that not only use Christian Bale’s Patrick Bateman character from the movie American Psycho who was a Serial Killer as their Mascot, but also disrupt the message of people like Andrew Tate insinuating that it is okay to be a misogynist and think highly of yourself while doing so. We must educate ourselves and others on the harmful effects of these memes and work towards creating a more inclusive and respectful online community.


Wokeism, Sexism, Misogyny, and Homophobia all play a role in the War of Genders. These issues are deeply ingrained in our society, and it is our responsibility to recognize and challenge them. It is essential to promote empathy and understanding, and to create safe spaces where people can express themselves without fear of judgment or discrimination.


In a Nutshell -


The War of Genders is a complex issue with many different things at play. While Toxic Masculinity and Toxic Femininity can have negative consequences, it is important to recognize that not all traits associated with traditional gender roles are bad. We should strive towards creating a more inclusive and respectful society that changes harmful stereotypes so we can work toward a brighter, more equitable future.
