No, ‘toxic masculinity’ does not define sports

In a Washington Post opinion piece , Boston University professor Joshua Pederson tries to cleanse himself of “failing at one of the basic tasks of parenthood” by declaring that toxic masculinity is central to organized sports.
It is Pederson himself who claims he worried that he was failing at parenthood because his 7-year-old son hated organized sports.

Let’s go who now?
Posey had been railing against President Biden’s Build Back Better bill: “They want you to help put America back where you found it and leave it the hell alone,” he said right before the Brandon cheer, which he accompanied with a desultory fist pump.
