A MAN lacking all toxic, stereotypically male attributes would not mind having just a hint of them, he has admitted.
Joseph Turner who is well aware that the patriarchy makes it impossible for men to express emotion or have interests outside of sport or drinking, and thinks that actually could be a relief at times.
He said: “I didn’t fit in at school. Even at university everyone was laddier than me. And now I’m about to hit 30 and I can barely talk to men at all.
“When I’m out for work drinks and one of them talks about getting in a scrap about a pub quiz, I’m riven with empathy and can’t help but ask if they want to share the emotional triggers that drove them to it.
“It really kills the mood. But I just can’t help but not bully my mates. My brother was ripping the piss out of his friend about his girlfriend cheating and I couldn’t help but say ‘Hey, come on, that’s really hurtful.’ Apparently that was ‘weird’.
“I don’t like football, beer tastes horrible, and I think the Marvel films are crap. But though women claim to deplore all this toxic masculinity shit, they don’t seem to like me talking about intersectional feminism either.”
Sister Ruby Turner said: “Yeah, Joe’s not got any of those terrible masculine attitudes that women hate. But he’s also so wet he cried just telling me about the end of Marley & Me.”
