    Sure, but there has yet to even be a mainstream movement to define that difference.

    Why the hell did LionPride get banned for a thread in which he was being harassed? Terrible moderation decision.

    He didn't bring it up and was harrassed by others .Sorry to further thread derail but he does not deserve punishment, and its unfair and sends a confusing and troubling precendent for later cases.

    If you have questions concerning any moderation action, PM a mod captain directly.

    This thread is not the place for such discussion.

    And there probably will never be one, at least not one with definitions set in stone that everyone can agree with, just use your head and don't let gender roles rule your life or hide behind them using it as a excuse for shitty behavior.

    That’s a pretty bold claim preceding an inadequate solution.

    Saying not everyone will agree with one true definition on a concept as malleable as masculinity is bold?, people cant even agree 100% on what feminism means, also I never said I had a solution I was basically just saying don't be a jerk or live your life according to one set of preconceived notions and you'll probably be ok.

    Agreed.

    ResetEra feels like CentristEra. It’s a bad look.

    I read your statement as saying that there will never be a mainstream movement to redefine masculinity.

    Don’t be a jerk doesn’t really work because part of toxic masculinity is failing to acknowledge the problematic behavior that masculinity encourages.

    How the hell is LionPride's argument that "bitch" is not the same thing as the N-word, one of the most heinous slurs in the history of the english language, a bannable act of misogyny. Is it Resetera's official stance that the N-word and "bitch" ARE equivalent?

    I still don't understand why you don't agree with the statement that "masculinity can be like a cult," when you already acknowledge that a subset of masculinity called toxic masculinity exists.

    Yes, even if they don't their actions say otherwise.

    And that apprantly he was too aggressive to the harassment he was getting with "personal anecdotes".

    Which I guess is them not wanting him to possibly offend people who hate the word and it's meaning regardless of context of it's use, which I get, but all he was saying is that other word has a history that makes it far different then using "bitch" is and you can't compare them.

    He wasn't "pro bitch" he was "anti-comparing things to the n word".

    probably, this site is very moral absolutist and full of people racing to be a moral superiority.

    and imo, the resettlement advisors tag has to go. too many of them assume they're mods or their words hold more weight than others.

    Inferno we might as well PM admins as there is discussion to be had with Terry's comments that are important and this other issue is taking notice from it.

    I never said I don't agree, I was just saying with such a loose definitions of what masculinity is it can be a lot of thing to different people, but yes it can be like a cult.

    I'd imagine the mysoginy claims stem from multiple female posters saying that they are uncomfortable with the word bitch and him repeatedly stating how little he gave a fuck because he faced no consequences for it IRL as his friends group gave him a pass to say it

    Edit: i need to not get caught up in these derails

    there may be a mainstream movement to examine the differences between toxic masculinity and regular masculinity but it probably won't be some grand thing that everyone across all cultures agree on 100% like anything else that open ended and personal is what I meant, and I think that maybe while not everyone knows when there being a jerk most people do, they just rationalize it as being a ok thing to do by hiding behind things like masculinity and a hundred other excuses.

    Locking this since it has entirely veered off course.
