Let's accept that crock you posted above as true, for the sake of discussion.

IF what you want to accomplish is to alter the behaviors and societal structures that are the problems being identified by the terms of the op, do you want to only be understood by those who have spent time familiarizing themselves with the literature around it? Preaching to the fairly small choir is not the most effective approach even if it allows for some smugness.

Since most people are not reading much of the literature, then by your post above most people will think "toxic masculinity" is humbug, and little progress will be made.
