Toxic masculinity and sexual assault

Toxic masculinity and sexual assault
I wasn't sure if this should go here or in the science area, but seeing as how toxic masculinity and rape apologia have become increasingly political, here goes.

Toxic masculinity leads to sexual assault more than alcohol

There definitely seems to be a link between alcohol and sexual assault, but it doesn't appear to be the largest contributing factor. A study following 700 college students grouped them into four categories based off of high or low frequency of assault, and trending higher or lower. The groups trending upward reported increased peer support for assault and general increase of hostility toward women.

Toxic masculinity and alcohol probably go hand in hand anyway.

Like the DKE frat that chanted 'No means yes, and yes means anal.' It's not hard to believe that members of that frat are more likely to engage in sexual misbehavior than a fraternity that chants...well never mind, I can't think of a fraternity chang that isn't misogynist, racist, pro-drunkenness, or so old it isn't painful to listen to.
I'm not anti-Christian. I'm anti-stupid.

It's easy to see how lowered inhibitions could make a shitty person shittier...less so how any amount of alcohol turns a person into a rapemonster.... that's a preexisting condition, lol, repeat from the beginning.

I've known alot more goofy and friendly drunks than toxic ones..that's anecdotal (and obviously has something to do with the sorts of people I hang out with)..but probably part of the reason why those assholes stand out in the first place. It's aberrant behavior..even for a drunk. When those guys get booted from parties..it's by a bunch of other drunks.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Not to mention the fact that when I'm seriously inebriated, I can't get it up. Alcohol does tend to act as a deterrent to arousal.

Unless there's money to be had in toxic masculinity or sexcrime, that's probably not a strong incentive.

I've been pinched and groped by sober men.  One time  when I was sitting on the examination table I had an doctor rub his dick on my knee while he was looking in my eyes with that light instrument thingy.  I never went back for the follow up exam.   It's always been sober men thinking with their dicks that seems to be the problem.  It's as if their brain suddenly disappears and the dickhead  takes over.  I donno you guys, I don't know what to say except, THINK.  Just THINK with the stuff up on top of your head, not the stuff between your legs.

And that doctor oughta be slapped.
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.
