Classy Masculinity Trumps Toxic Femininity
"Toxic masculinity," a phrase coined and popularized on the far-Left during Barack Obama's presidency, has gone mainstream. Ever since Donald Trump's election victory, the mainstream media absorbed and promoted the phrase. By now, pretty much everyone in America has heard it. A Google search for "toxic masculinity" gets over 5 million results. A similar search for "classy masculinity" yields less than 400.
Donald Trump demonstrated some classy masculinity on Tuesday when he took a moment during his State of the Union speech to celebrate record-high employment numbers for American women. Democrat Congresswomen were reluctant to applaud this, since that would make them appear to give credit to Trump for accomplishing it. So, instead, they decided to praise themselves by turning around and applauding at one another. The implied argument went something like this:
"Oh, women have high employment numbers, eh? That's because America is putting women like us in positions of political power to oppose you!"
