The discussion of whether something commonly considered an archetypical example of toxic masculinity is in fact a male stereotype or toxic is immaterial, but the discussion of what to call the concept is important?

Well, okay. I mean, the other discussion clearly ain't going anywhere, so I suppose it's more productive to talk semantics.

What would you like to see it called? What term should we be using, if the one that's generally agreed upon in sociology is so bad at communicating the concept?

Also, how do we discuss the existence of stereotypes without affirming stereotypes, in your view?
