Toxic Masculinity

When shad­owkatt and GothC went out for a walk last night, the brats prac­tic­ing skate­board tricks were annoyed at being ignored. When the girls were com­ing back in, the boys called out var­i­ous epithets—bitch, whore, and some­thing about fuzzy lesbians.

The girls weren’t real­ly upset, more amused at the boys. If either of them had been alone, I think they would have been more sus­cep­ti­ble to the crap. curiousmay9 and I explained that the boys must have felt inse­cure in their mas­culin­i­ty or some­thing like that and that too many males accuse any woman who isn’t inter­est­ed in them of being one of those things.

I am still annoyed. They should­n’t have had to deal with that. I’ll be talk­ing to the apart­ment man­age­ment tomor­row. There are some very strin­gent claus­es in our leas­es about our chil­dren’s behav­ior while in the com­plex, and that crap def­i­nite­ly vio­lat­ed them.
