Is the concept of "Toxic Masculinity" weaponised to emasculate men?

Examples

The pervasive idea of male-female interactions as competition, not cooperation.
The pervasive idea that men cannot truly understand women, and vice versa--and following, that no true companionship can be had between different sexes.
The expectation that Real Men are strong, and that showing emotion is incompatible with being strong. Anger is either framed as the exception to the rule, or as not an emotion.
Relatedly, the idea that a Real Man cannot be a victim of abuse, or that talking about it is shameful.
Men are just like that: the expectation that Real Men are keenly interested in sex, want to have sex, and are ready to have sex most if not all times
The idea that Real Men should be prepared to be violent, even when it is not called for.
For example, a common response to women's tales of experiencing street harassment is for a man who's listening to say, "If I was there, I would have punched [the harasser]." This is problematic .
Cliches
In real life it is widely expected that a man would abandon his pregnant girlfriend, being incapable and/or unwilling to take responsibility, feeling little to no attachment to an unborn child, and expecting pregnancy and motherhood to not only change but ruin the girlfriend and the relationship.
The myth that men are not interested in parenting, and are inherently unsuited to be single parents.
discourages men from becoming involved in the lives of their children.
encourages household inequality, which hurts all involved.
assumes that in case of divorce, children will go with their mothers, instead of examining each situation individually.
Emasculation: the idea that there is a range of feminine interests and activities a Real Man would not hold, and that disprove a man's masculinity regardless of his other actions:
interest in one's personal looks, cosmetics, dressing up, fashion
being emotional, expressing emotion, crying
appreciating "frivolous" things such as sugary "girly" drinks, romantic styles, cute animal videos, romcom flicks
understanding women, being sympathetic[1]
being silly, giddy
needing help, not-knowing
and so on.

The media have really fucked up the world. Free speech, you gotta love those hypocrites.

The world is more sexist, homophobic and racist than when i was growing up. The public has to start standing up for their rights or else they will be taken away. The media printing all sorts of stories just to cause bad feeling and hostility towards people of different backgrounds.

I expect now, that George Hook is back on air again, he will reset the recognised bounds for masculinity and in the process will melt a few snowflakes

Does drinking 16 pints, standing on the oche and hitting double 15 count?

As much as we can try to resist it, the Y chromosome is truly fucked. The clitoris is nothing more than an undeveloped penis. In a couple of millennia, they will evolve towards some middle ground.
