A social science term that describes narrow repressive type of ideas about the male gender role, that defines masculinity as exaggerated masculine traits like being violent, unemotional, sexually aggressive, and so forth. Also suggests that men who act too emotional or maybe aren’t violent enough or don’t do all of the things that “real men” do, can get their “man card” taken away.

Many people confuse the difference between Masculinity and toxic Masculinity. However, one can be masculine without having toxic Masculinity.

Some beliefs of toxic masculinity is that:

-interactions between men and women always has to be competitive and not cooperative.

-men can never truly understand women and that men and women can never just be friends.

-That REAL men need to be strong and that showing emotion is a sign of weakness... unless it’s anger, that is considered okay.

-The idea that men can never be victims of abuse and talking about it is shameful.

-The idea that REAL men always want sex and are ready for it at any time.

-The idea that violence is the answer to everything and that REAL men solve their problems through violence.

-The idea that men could never be single parents and that men shouldn’t be very interactive in their children’s learning and development and that men should always be the dominant one in the relationship or else he’s a “Cuck.”

-The idea that any interest in a range of things that are strictly considered feminine would be an emasculation of a guy.
Guy: A Real Man doesn’t stay home and take care of his kids while his wife works. You’re a cuck.

Other guy: I don’t need your toxic Masculinity and preconceived notions of what it means to be a “real mean.”

Any Male action that doesn't conform to liberal ideals of what a man SHOULD be in today's society. If he isn't sensitive and emotional and docile he is accused of toxic masculinity. Where as used to these people were known as "douche bags" or even "assholes" (see also Twunt) now they are blamed for being a product of the male driven society
Person one: "See how he puts other people down all the time? He's a product of Toxic Masculinity.
Person two: "Nah, mate...he's a fecking twunt is what he is...needs his arse kicked."

A term invented by man-hating fake feminists seeking to suppress men's biological trait. Those who use this misandristic term claim they are not calling masculinity itself toxic, but rather the toxic actions that are performed through masculinity. If you are a sane, logical person you will obviously realize what a nonsensical meaning that is. Fake feminists only use such term to control and suppress men - we as a society can not let that happen, thus we have to understand the true meaning of said term.
Jack: You know what Chris? Women just love to stare at my big guns. It seems my hard work at the gym has finally paif off.

"toxic masculinity"
a healthy trait native to and suitable for men that turns poisonous when feminist women seek to destroy men by draining it from them using it to replace their own femininity
"I don't want men to have the freedom to be their natural selves, so I label their behavior as toxic masculinity."

An abstract concept that is probably useful for understanding some extreme male behaviors yet is often trundled out and weaponized when someone simply disagrees with somebody else.
