17 Things That Show How Fragile Masculinity Really Is

In general, I pride myself on being the kind of person who does not over-generalize. Like, I wouldn’t like anyone to make an assumption about me based on what i look like or who I hang out with, and I am pretty certain that most other people feel the same way. But, as with all general and self-indulgent pledges, this one does have some lapses. Because of this, there is at least one generalization that I feel comfortable making: All men are fragile. Or, at least, most men feel fragile within the confines of their masculinity.

If you are someone who is a girl or presents as a girl, and you have ever been on the internet before (or even just, like, existed in real life), you will likely have been presented with this fact. From the gendered products to the weird online come-ons to that one guy you don’t know but follows you on every social media account you have just to send you weird, cryptic messages, it’s there. Don’t believe me? Check out these examples of exactly how fragile guys’ masculinity can be here:

    Funny how Feminists talk of masculinity being fragile.. you question their agenda, point out hypocrisy and don’t stroke the female ego, and suddenly it’s all men’s faults lol
