    What is "masculinity"? Is it necessarily "toxic"? What would "non-toxic masculinity" look like?

    I have a fine collection of kigurumis, you have to be pretty masculine to carry them off well!

    Personally I don't think non-toxic masculinity is an oxymoron. One can be masculine without being a mean asshole. I suppose if someone were looking for a quick a simple guide I'd simply suggest that they don't be a dick.

    Personally I felt masculine today when I successfully changed out the side mirror on my car. SO needs the car to travel to the various hotels under his management. For a couple of weeks now he's been having to lean into an odd angle in order to make use of the mirror that had been jerry-rigged in place with packing tape and a gatorade bottle lid. Which was probably a safety hazard. So I did what I could to make the car safer for him to drive. I can't think of too many things more masculine than making something a little bit safer for a loved one.
