I understand.You have to focus on it so you know what to look for, and when. And not dwell on it, but take action. You have to experience it first hand, take note of it, then learn. Been there...I was taken to task by my ex's friends after I had a Stroke. Things were already shytty, but I learned the hard way how to deal with this. Unfortunately you might have to be very upfront about it, depending on the people you're around.
I have a strong sensitivity to stress/conflict after all this, and what happened that took me there. I can't handle conflict anymore. Even a nasty tv show can flip my switch now. But try to tell a female doctor that...when I tell my story they think I'm the problem. Because I'm a man, who shows attitude when I explain, just by saying what I do. That's the only excuse women need. They took my meds away that helped me knock the PTSD I was diagnosed with. So, I have to just "deal with it". Toxic Femininity is indeed very real, and it's certainly not a new thing.
Women can use toxic masculinity as a factor in breaking men down, their marriages, their reputation. It can be a genuinely real Bytch.
I've known people who had a stroke and how it changes them overnight.
