Toxic Masculinity

in music •  2 months ago


Real men don't cry
Real men don't cry
No, real men don't cry (no we don't)
Real men don't cry

Real men don't cry
They stare at the sun
Until their tear ducts
Are destroyed (Destroyed!)
Real men don't feel pain
They do press ups! (Press ups!)
Until they feel nothing
Nothing at all
Nothing at all
Nothing at all
Nothing at all
Nothing at all

It's toxic masculinity
Toxic masculinity
It's toxic masculinity
Toxic masculinity
It's toxic masculinity
Yeah baby it's you and me

Toxic
Toxic
Toxic
Toxic
Toxic
Toxic
Toxic

Real Buddhists don't suffer
They only feel pain
Only feel pain
We only feel pain
We only feel pain
We only feel pain
We only feel pain
But the pain makes us stronger
It makes us stronger
It makes us stronger

I'm going to assume that the thumbnail of a monkey with headphones on indicates satire. :-D

The subject is very topical. I've heard the phrase used in a serious context. It deserves its own feminine version. Perhaps we should all sing a song about 'Slutty Femininity' and see how well that catches on?

Don't like the sound of that phrase? That is about how I feel about 'Toxic Masculinity'.

It obfuscates and confuses. It is a tool to control and subvert the individual.
