I was online today when I ran across the below tweet. The link is to the original tweet. https://twitter.com/ms_fishscale/status/1249484419620102145?s=20 Of course the above tweet is ridiculous, but this isn't the first time I've seen people give insane rules for men to be considered straight/masculine/sexually worthwhile. We all know the various ways men police each other's masculinity, but women do it as well. In my time online dating I've seen women put things in their profiles like, "I don't date men with cats" and I've had women that I didn't know make snide, sexuality questioning comments about shirts I've worn. It seems like straight male masculinity is always under a microscope. That's why we have commercials like this: Men can't even buy soap unless we're assured that it is as manly as possible. It's kind of insulting. Do you agree that there is a lot of policing of straight male masculinity? If so, why do you think there is so much policing of straight male masculinity and what can we do to stop it? Should it be stopped?
