The 10 Most Ridiculous Responses to the #MasculinitySoFragile hashtag

It's Toxic Masculinity Man!
It’s Toxic Masculinity Man!

The #MasculinitySoFragile hashtag took off yesterday after a Buzzfeed article highlighted a bunch of products being marketed to men with some of the most cartoonish evocations of old-school masculinity you could possibly imagine, from grenade-shaped shower puffs for men to Man Chocolate.

The point of the hashtag was fairly obvious: to look at, and mock, the ways these ads try to capitalize on male insecurities and suggest ways men can free themselves from destructive stereotypes of masculinity.

Because, as these ads make clear, masculinity and femininity aren’t inscribed in our genes the way eye and hair color are; they are to a large extent cultural constructs, ways of seeing, ways of thinking, ways of acting that we learn from parents, peers, and, increasingly, the media  — hence the insecurity many men feel about their masculinity, and the ease with which advertisers are able to play on these insecurities to make money.

Talking about these constructs as constructs can help us to free ourselves from aspects of masculinity and femininity that are toxic or unnecessarily restrictive.

The #MasculinitySoFragile hashtag, like the Buzzfeed article that got the conversation going, broaches the subject in a funny way, telling guys that, yes, it’s ok to buy yourself a pink shower puff for $3 instead of shelling out twice that much for an Axe Detailer Shower Tool that looks like it came straight out of Gears of War.

So, naturally, the hashtag was quickly flooded by antifeminists and anxious men who saw the whole thing not as a deconstruction of the sort of toxic masculinity that’s making them anxious in the first place, but as an army of evil feminazis calling them a bunch of wusses.

Not realizing that the feminists were talking about the surprising fragility of cultural definitions of masculinity, the critics of the hashtag assumed the feminists were accusing  men of being fragile.  I don’t know the last time I saw such a colossal outbreak of not-getting-the-point.

As one observer sympathetic to the original aim of the hashtag noted,,

How did the “critics” of the hashtag get it so wrong? Let me count the ways.

1) They declared that it wasn’t MEN who were fragile, but FEMINISTS so there.

https://twitter.com/alWPWtom/status/646657930574569472

https://twitter.com/Luisedgm/status/646657724852342784

2) They offered to fight any feminist comers, to show the world just how unfragile they are.

3) They accused feminists who weren’t shaming men … of shaming men.

https://twitter.com/The_Extrange/status/646646321563176960

4) Meanwhile, others in their camp tried to shame women for being (allegedly) inferior to men at pretty much everything.

5) Sometimes they forgot to make an argument and just said “suck it.”

6) Others fell back on random insults.

https://twitter.com/matthewhummel/status/646783223867965440

https://twitter.com/_Jiggz/status/646830406885507072

7) They cast aspersions on the motivations, and the masculinity, of feminist men participating in the hashtag.

https://twitter.com/PolitiBunny/status/646816129902510080

https://twitter.com/AVoiceForMen/status/646843565478309888

https://twitter.com/LucasTemple/status/646832952702140416

8) Some of them decided to take the opportunity to cast aspersions on Barak Obama’s masculinity as well, because isn’t he like a feminist or something?

https://twitter.com/HensleywkAo/status/646664691146694656

9) A few used the hashtag to promote white supremacy, because why not?

https://twitter.com/UncuckTheRight/status/646887485566377984

https://twitter.com/ElStatelo/status/646752815168233472

10) They warned feminists that if they kept talking about how men are fragile — which, again, they weren’t doing — well then, these women wouldn’t be getting any more help from men with stuck jelly jar lids, and they could forget about having doors opened for them ever, much less having dudes treat them to dinner!

https://twitter.com/NotOne2bPC/status/646831693643542529

https://twitter.com/ThinkingWeasel/status/646769296899764224

Ladies: You have lost a POWERFUL ALLY today.

Never again will you have a nice dinner. Or eat jelly.

Tauriq Moosa probably did the best job of summing up the whole parade of nonsense.

Yep, that pretty much covers it.

I have never in my life, not even once, been worried about being “emasculated”. Does this only happen to Supermen or something? The only way you can be “emasculated” is if you’re really nervous about other people not thinking your masculine enough. And they still can’t see what’s toxic about being constantly nervous over some made up ideal?

Regarding Elam’s tweet, I’m wondering what a bigoted basilisk is? Are they the boyfriends beta orbiters to the feminist morays?

Holding the lid under the hot tap can work well too.

Incidentally, when the outdated fuses blew in our house the other week, guess who it was who knew how to fix them? (I used to do it for my mum when I was a kid). We can do anything we’re taught to do, male or female.

Oh my gosh they(as in Sargon of Akkad and chums) think that when someone uses the term “toxic masculinity”, they’re talking about masculinity in general? That’s just… precious.

By that logic, you can’t complain about rotten eggs without complaining about regular fresh delicious eggs.

I have found that if I give a jar a few good hard slaps on its bottom, it will be much easier for me to open the lid. I can’t explain why that is though.

Here’s the sad thing about one of those statements: What makes him think that women are going to miss the self-involved, condescending, bullsh** civility he practiced anyway? Some of us women NEVER got such treatment from men like him because we weren’t considered “hawt” enough to warrant being treated in a civilized manner.

So by his logic, the only women who should be treated with the respect given to human beings are Hawt women he’s like to f***. Except they don’t actually want to treat the Hawt women with dignity or respect either, since men like him all advocate for abusing such women, at every opportunity.

Has anyone mentioned just getting the jar lid warm yet? Then it expands so is easier to get off.

You can either run it under the hot tap or just use the friction from your hands. That probably explains the old “I must have loosened it for you” thing.

I don’t remember when was the last time I couldn’t open a jar. I’m not super strong or anything, maybe I’m a man after all?

Maybe I live in a place where only ridiculously easy to open jars are commercialized?

Maybe no one opens jars anymore? Maybe we don’t even exist?

As a short woman with very slim wrists I learned a good trick for stubborn jars, just take a screwdriver and use it to lever under the lid, not enough to bend the metal, just enough to break the vacuum. I also keep a small foot stool in the kitchen for those high shelves. Remind me how helpless without a man I am again?

My dad, who’s nearly seventy and decided it was getting too difficult to open stuck jar lids, applied his usual logic to solving the problem and picked the most efficient jar opener he could find. It’s a plumbing tool used for tightening or loosening fixtures and it now resides permanently in my parents’ kitchen drawer. I’ve tried it myself and it’s very effective. Lol, I love dad logic 😉

BTW your footstool comment reminds me of a passage from Michael Moore’s book Stupid White Men where he basically says that women don’t need men anymore – they just need an aluminium* stepladder.

Strap wrenches do a good job on jars too. Plus they can be used on oil filters (wash ’em afterwards if you want to go back to jars), pipes, even tight bottlecaps if you can adjust them down small enough…

OMG, ninja’d myself by not reading all the comments first! A strap wrench IS what my dad uses for opening stubborn jar lids.

Somebody responded to the challenge from that “mechofwizard” guy and he backpedaled, apparently on the grounds that she wasn’t an “organic” user of the hashtag. Pretty sure she was serious on taking him up on his three rounds challenge, too. It was hilarious.

I just want say Michelle Malkin is a terrible person. She rights for the terrible Vdare, the premier platform for blatantly racist paleoconservatives, and wrote a terrible book defending the WW2 Japanese internment that’s a crime against history.

I have a copy of that book (I wrote a paper on the Japanese and Aleutian Indian internment for a history class and I cited it) and it is, in fact, hilariously awful. Another fun fact: Vox Day ripped into Malkin over this book; his posts on the subject are an object lesson in how right-wingers and libertarians will fling racism at their supposed allies while making their points. If you’d like to see it for yourself, do a search for the phrase “me so Michelle” on his blog.

I do the same thing. A couple of good smacks on the bottom with the heel of my hand usually works.

If not, then I get a paper towel to get a better grip on the lid.

Ikeke35: I think the reason slapping the jars around works is that a lot of the time when a jar is stuck it’s because the lid was well enough sealed that it created a vacuum. Slapping it can make the lid jiggle just enough to let air in.

The weird commercial divide starts early. My son (8) refuses anything pink. I’m not a pink person, but I don’t hate it either. I bought myself a nice pink toothbrush when I discovered my son was using mine on a regular basis. I love my boy, but I don’t want to share a toothbrush.

I have a pair of rugby boots that are *bright* pink (they are technically men’s football boots) Another coach (male) saw them once and said “Y’know you’re not fooling anyone with those boots right?”

(Not quite sure what that meant)

@Falconer, it seems she’s in the habit of using the Royal We a lot:

http://malkin-watch.blogspot.ca/2005/11/ghost-blogging-redux.html

Most of the stuff on her is five to ten years old, so it seems that’s been forgotten/swept under the rug/too boring to pursue at length anymore. She’s not the media darling she was; guess she’s hit The Wall or sumpin’. I dunno.

Personally, I have trouble believing that any one person is that energetic, even if all she does with her prodigious energy is churn out mounds of drivel. She’s had help, and plenty of it, from the mister.

(I also refuse to believe any one person on her own can be that spectacularly stupid, but I’ll cheerfully admit I could be wrong about that. At the very least, though, in this case, I’d say it’s probably folie à deux. One person’s stoopid feeding another’s, IOW.)

Thanks to all who proved the hashtag right. I find it funny that they think it’s ok to send rape and death threats and “joke” about women/girls/Femininity and say we should have thicker skin but if we joke about them then dang watch those mantrums tell me whose the sensitive ones who need to grow a thicker skin again?

If men who take part in the hashtag are only looking to get laid does that mean women and girls who “protect” men and boys are looking to get laid too?

To the people who use “emasculation” thanks for proving that misogyny exists and men are seen as superior and can have their “power” taken away.

If women and girls don’t deserve respect because they didn’t invent anything then I don’t have to respect certain men or boys especially you because they or you didn’t invent anything either. And also:

My typical response to the whole jar-opening/door-opening argument:

“In the past, before feminists killed chivalry, men opened doors for women, pulled out chairs for them, helped them put on their coats!” Let’s start with the fact that all these token gestures are confined to the period of courtship. Once the ring goes on (in a traditionalist, 1950’s-style relationship), the man stops being the woman’s “servant” and she becomes his. Let’s get real here. How many traditionalist husbands, upon parking the car at Target or whatever, get out, walk around and open the door for their wives while they regally wait? How many traditionalist husbands routinely help their wives get dressed — except on rare occasions when it is done for public display? Forget whether such “services” are even needed, how often are they actually done? And what is the value of all this crap? Let me see if I can understand the thinking here. A woman gets symbolically “waited on” for a few weeks of her life and periodically thereafter, and for these occasional and totally unneeded pulled chairs and held coats, she must show appropriate gratitude by flushing all her talents, dreams, aspirations and decades of hard work down the toilet in order to make steak, iron shirts and keep the kids from being a nuisance to their father. Full time. Forever. Oh year, that sounds like a GREAT deal!

“Men open jars for women!” Do you eat? Yes? Then STFU and open the godd-d jar when requested. How hilarious is this for your wife to struggle with a jar while making a meal for YOU, but for you to assist her in the smallest way is somehow an imposition and a favor to her? What churtzpah do you have to pat yourself on the back for opening a jar of something that, in all likelyhood, YOU will eat? Jesus Christ, you should fall on your knees and thank your lucky stars there is someone who actually puts up with you. Because if karma was real, and if there was any justice in the universe, you’d subsist on Chef Boyardee until the day you die.

“Men mow lawns! Lift heavy stuff! Fix the sink!” Traditionalist men only do that after being asked for MONTHS, and after giving their wives an earful about “nagging”, and then spend years complaining to their friends about the uppity sperm bank who wants them to use their superior strength to do something about the house. When traditionalist men and their troglodyte friends engage in that kind of talk, they usually fortify themselves with refreshments prepared by the aforementioned sperm bank. Traditionalist men give their wives so much **** about having to hammer in a nail, or take out the garbage, raise such a royal stink, that eventually their wives just give up and either leave or resign to doing everything themselves. So no, you don’t mow the lawn, you don’t lift heavy stuff, you don’t fix the sink. Once in a decade doesn’t count.

“Men open jars for women!”

Ha, ha! I can see you’ve known a traditionalist man or two.

In my experience, these traditionalists all have the same mantra (“Men are superior to women”) but express it in different ways.

My much older brother — an MRA before there were MRAs, mostly because our father was enforcing a proto-MRA-style hierarchy — was determined to prove that he had the biggest muscles ever. So every jar he opened, he closed verrry tightly. (For all I know, he opened and closed jars at random while the rest of us slept.)

So I was a child trying to open jars closed tightly by a grown man. You know what? I figured out ways to do it. Hit the side of the lid against the wooden table. Run hot water over the lid. Hit the lid again. Never once did I ask him to open a lid.

I’m still pretty INTENSE in my approach to tight lids. But if I fail, nowadays I ask my boyfriend.

Let me see if I can understand the thinking here. A woman gets symbolically “waited on” for a few weeks of her life and periodically thereafter, and for these occasional and totally unneeded pulled chairs and held coats, she must show appropriate gratitude by flushing all her talents, dreams, aspirations and decades of hard work down the toilet in order to make steak, iron shirts and keep the kids from being a nuisance to their father.

How many are there? And they tend to flock anywhere that appears to be “misandry” glad they have better things to do than to actually help men and boys. I don’t quite get them blaming feminists for banning sexbots don’t they say that all feminists are lesbians? Why would we ban sexbots if they’re going to be female? And we be happy if they got their own sexbots so they would leave us alone. And not just female but some sexbots are male so wouldn’t that just be shooting ourselves in the feet?

I wouldn’t assume they’re all Mras but they’re definitely anti feminists/misognists. I run into those almost everywhere I go. If it makes you feel better I do believe they are a minority its just the loudest that scares us.

Not to worry. My understanding is that you can receive notices (according to subject) about what shows up online.

So yeah, you might read Dear Prudence for weeks and not run into any MRAs. But if she gets a letter about a cheating wife or a woman who committed a crime or left her husband or some such, they descend on the comments board and yak about how if the genders were REVERSED, we would have a VERY different reaction.

What is it with these people and doors??? Unless the door is covered in toxic waste, or maybe bees, I can open it myself (I’ve been opening doors since I was eleven). Why do they place so much importance on it? I don’t get it at all.

Pro tip! If you’re walking through a door and someone is right behind you or going through from the opposite direction, keep it open and don’t just let it slam in their face. That’s about it.

Well, yes. Very much this. No worries about men/women/children/whatever, it’s just rude to let the door close in somebody’s face, so if they’re close enough behind you that they’d get to the door before it closes by itself, hold it open.

Though I’ll make exceptions and hold it for longer if the person is a longer ways behind me but obviously either carrying an armload of stuff, pushing a cart, or in a wheelchair, as those make opening the doors themselves more difficult. (None of those require me to condescendingly hold the door open from halfway across a hotel room lobby, though. There’s being polite, and then there’s implying that the other person can’t do what you’re doing for them, and the latter is most definitely NOT polite.)

@shinyjoolie you’re making the mistake of thinking that anyone who disagrees with you is an “MRA”. But in fact feminism is getting increasingly unpopular in the population as a whole. MRA is the loony extreme end of anti-feminism, just like radical feminism is the loony extreme end of feminism. But the population as a whole is getting less feminist as the feminist movement gets more and more batshit crazy.

A trick I’ve discovered for opening jar lids the first time – bang the lid (not too hard) against the edge of the counter until the seal breaks (and the little vacuum seal button on the lid “pops”). Once the vacuum inside the jar is broken, it’s a lot easier to move the lid.

(Oh, and to prevent jar lids from becoming stuck after you’ve first opened them, wipe the inside of the lid and the grooves around the rim to prevent build-up. Prevention is better than cure, after all).

The sorts of plastic or metallic lids where you’re supposed to be breaking perforations can be made easier to move if you just pre-score along the perforation line with a knife. (My personal horrors to open are the lids on the bottles of Bickfords brand cordials – very small metal lids which are supposed to be turned until the perforations break, but which don’t seem to be properly perforated by whichever machine puts them on). Alternatively, the plastic ones are often fairly easy to insert a thumb-nail into, and then pull down the little “ring” below the perforations, thus rendering the lid a lot easier to remove.

Corks get removed by corkscrews (although in these days of the screw-top wine bottle, this is less of a worry).

To be honest, the trickiest lid I have to deal with is the cap on the engine of our car (in order to pour in more oil). However, I suspect even that would submit politely if I just clean all the gunge off the edges of the cap and the slot it’s supposed to go into.

So, why was I supposed to worry about withdrawal of masculine labour in this respect again?
