The Root of Toxic Masculinity

News

22/02/2019

“This is how toxic it had become — it was in my blood. My muscle memory. My daily habits had all revolved around one thing…getting what I wanted, confirmation of me as a man through those old, toxic ways. It’s work that I must keep doing, every day, to find my worth and confirmation in new ways.” Psychology Today 

What is Toxic Masculinity and what causes it? Toxic Masculinity has nothing to do with biology, but is instead a term used to describe the negative ways in which our societies think about masculinity. It is a form of gendered behaviour, which tells us that men should be powerful, wealthy and have status. It tells us that men are more powerful than women, and that other men who do not conform to these masculine ‘ideals’ are ‘weak’.

It is this belief in male entitlement and dominance that can cause toxic behaviours to seep into a man’s life. He might become violent, manipulative, misogynistic; and those close to a toxic man can be reduced to his commodities. Women, in particular, are often the victims of toxic masculinity.

The toxic male’s belief in male superiority manifests in a feeling of entitlement to a women’s body, and causes him to exert physical control over women. In South Africa, intimate partner violence is the most common form of Gender-Based Violence, and 56% of all women murdered were killed by an intimate male partner.

Toxic masculinity often finds its roots in the home. Take a look at Sol’s character in MTV Shuga: Down South 2. Sol’s Dad, Mthunzi, displays the traits of toxic masculinity. He has wealth and power, but shows no affection to his family and is cruel to his wife, Amahle, taking out his frustrations on her. Growing up, Sol has learnt the same toxic behaviours from his Dad, causing him to feel entitled to rape Tsholo in Series 1, and threaten Khensani in Series 2.

But women are not the only victims of toxic masculinity. Toxic Masculinity tells us that only one form of masculinity is acceptable and that other ways of living are ‘weak’. It tells us that men can’t cry or show emotions. Men can’t be told what to do by a woman. Men can’t wear pink, or wear expressive clothes and jewellery. Men who do not conform to these ideals suffer bullying, abuse, and are made to feel emasculated.

Sol is a bad person, and the crimes that he has committed are wrong and must be punished, but is he also the victim of a toxic masculinity which forces him to hide his emotions and act in certain ways? The crimes committed by toxic men need to be punished, but it is only by understanding the roots of toxic masculinity that we can attempt to prevent it.

It's quite terrible that we live in a world filled with dishonest people and there’s nothing we can do about it. These people now make a living from being very dishonest and cheating as many gullible persons as possible. This practice is very old amongst men yet every new generation seems to birth new ideas and tricks inspired by whatever the latest pandemic or current trends there is to exploit. Unfortunately, I have also fallen victim to scammers, This time it was an investment opportunity designed to elevate me from suffering. The economy was hit hard and I was behind on 90% of my bills, my restaurant business was in a very bad place financially so it was either I get run down with time due to lack of capital or somehow improve my finances in other to have the capital I needed to save my business and my life in general. I always heard crypto trading can be very profitable if done correctly with the right guidance and risk management. Well, it turned out I got guidance from the wrong people who eventually took me for every penny I had left, they ripped me off as much as 128K USD in 3 months including the loans I took from friends to settle some fees. I thought I was as careful as ever but the way everything is backed up with documents was very convincing, it’s up to us to realize when we are being taken. When I did realize the scam, I got very depressed thinking I had lost everything then one day, I decided to go online and seek any possible help to recover my assets but no matter what I did it looked like I was always hitting a dead end with no positive lead on genuine recovery company to help recover my assets, My friend suggested I try Pro Wizard Gilbert Recovery and asked me to give it a thought. A few days later, He connected me with Pro Wizard Gilbert Recovery, the team took up my case after doing the necessary verifications and within 6 hours my stuck-up funds were transferred into my wallet and I quickly converted them to cash. Quite a tremendous job the team carried out to save my life and I fully recommend getting help from Pro Wizard Gilbert Recovery if you’re in a similar situation.

My words of advice to everyone out there, please have a proper insight before investing in these online cryptocurrency trading platforms and binary options. My co worker introduced me to one such platform where he had invested $300,000 which would generate $500,000 in 2 weeks. After much convincing from my work partner, I saw it as a lucrative opportunity and so I jumped on it and invested my $215,500 to earn $430,000 within the same period. I started noticing red flags when they asked my colleague to pay for such charges to facilitate the withdrawal process which was never successful. The same happened to me when my 2 weeks was due, By the time we realized it was a scam, they had already robbed us a total of $750,000. We opted to hire an investigator and a top hacking syndicate who took our case, and in three days, they had tracked the scammers and refunded our money. Contact them judasrecovery@gmail.com
