It’s toxic, people. Being masculine shouldn’t mean that you cannot like certain celebrities, songs, or even entertainment that are otherwise fine. Because of how they were raised, it appears that some men were illusioned that they are ‘alphas’ and a species above women.

Richard shares his first observation on how insecure men act: “As soon as a man refers to himself as an alpha…”

Richard is a journalist and active content creator with more than 324k followers on TikTok. He invites others to stitch the video and shares what they think men who are insecure about their masculinity do or say to show that.

“I made more money than he did, so I would pay for things. But he wouldn’t let me pay — as in, he wouldn’t let me physically hand my card over to the server. So when the server would come, this guy would look me straight in the eyes and say, ‘I got this, babe.’ Then, he would hand her my card.”toxicatok

“I see this all the time with my young male students. It always comes in the form of not liking things. It’s not that they actually don’t like the things… whether that’s anime or female artists. They won’t like it because they think that there’s gonna be a social consequence from them saying they like it.”fullstripe

“Someone who gets off on hating everything and constantly projecting toughness. I was like that when I was, like, 15, and my entire personality was a device to try and convince people I was tough in some way. Like, if a new song came out, I had to assert that it was terrible. As an adult, you meet these guys and it’s just so exhausting.”cwelz_

“My ex-boyfriend wore these boots. They were a size 13. They got all f***ed up. So I got him a new pair. He got all excited. I’m a mom, so I can’t just give you new boots; I’ve got to check to see if they fit. You know, like (pushing on the edge of the shoes to find toes), ‘Where’s your toe?’ to see if it fits right. Well, he wore a size 8-and-a-half. He would walk around in size 13 pair of boots because someone might think something of his little feet. Yes, he was toxic.”nazcanukagirl
