Toxic Masculinity

Welcome to the 21st century, a world where the impossible is possible, holograms are a reality, technology is right at the top of our fingertips and we have truly begun to tap into the potential that people have to offer. What's interesting is that even though we have come so far we still have to subject ourselves to 19th-century mentality. Could it be that we are growing faster than what our own brains can comprehend?

For hundreds of years, the roles of man and woman have always been clearly defined with lines drawn in the sand so distinctly and so prominently that they could be seen with the naked eye. Women belonged in the kitchen cooking, cleaning and raising children, a man was to go out and work "bring home the bacon" so to speak. Time went by and we had women fighting for their space and presence in the workforce and not only there but to be recognized and seen that they too have more value than just rearing children and cleaning homes, with that fight still ongoing and women fighting for equal pay and representation in the Top Management round table, I can not help but notice that as men we have regressed into this older 19th century way of what the world says a man should be much like it used to be in the early 19 hundreds. It is as if we need to be more "mucho" to certify our presence and that could not be further from the truth. As we tackle issues of gender biases and other social injustices, there has been this looming toxicness that is plaguing and has infiltrated the man of our time and that's toxic masculinity.
