...immaterial to whom? Its clear that its immaterial to you. But we have two posters in this very thread who have talked about how they feel they have to modify their behaviour based on if they are interacting with either men or women. So it isn't immaterial to them.

They freakin' are the stereotypes.
It seems like you are having a very different conversation to the rest of us. Identifying and pointing out examples of toxic masculinity is a very different thing to affirming and accepting. They aren't stereotypes. They aren't a "widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular type of person or thing." We are talking about specific behaviours: not general and oversimplified examples.
