“Eh don’t pussy la bro, don’t be a SIMP.”

When the director of AWARE, Corinna Lim, called for a “review of national service to weed out toxic masculinity”, the internet retaliated. From comments like “NOT ALL MEN”, to “Women should do NS too” and even “What about toxic femininity?”, the conversation around toxic masculinity was thrown back into the spotlight. On our latest episode of the Nic Kim column, we speak with a fellow feminist, Kristian Marc James Paul, on how anyone can perpetuate toxic masculinity, and how we can collectively work towards helping men learn healthy behaviors and develop stronger communities.
