Hyper-Masculinity usually includes aggressiveness, rape, being angry, being abusive and very muscular. This isn't always the case I understand though.26
I don't know what "hyper-masculinity" means. If it's a good thing like awesomeness, hyper-awesomeness is naturally going to be even more great. If it's not such a good thing like short temper and utilizing violence in unnecessary situations, hyper violence and hyper temper probably isn't a very good thing.116
Why would a hyper-masculine man care who frowns at him?31
What Girls & Guys Said
Nobody frowns upon "hyper-masculinity", that's nonsense. People make fun of men who they think are too feminine, not men who they think are too masculine.33
Feminism mainly. Feminism blames masculinity for a lot of things, problems with both men and women.
They talk about toxic masculinity and hyper-masculinity - things like bullying, rape, sexual assault, domestic violence etc. These things have absolutely nothing at all to do with masculinity. Women can be just as guilty of these things, they aren't caused by masculinity. The people who do these things are just fucked in the head.
They attached these things to masculinity simply because they hate masculinity. They'll always deny this and call it nonsense, but I think that's just because they know that if they make their true feelings about it clear that this turns people away from feminism. But everything they encourage in men has to do with men becoming more effeminate, discouraging and pathologizing masculinity.
Soyboys who talk about "hyper-masculinity" and how bad it is do so because they're not masculine. A lot of people attempt to play down and criticise standards that they can't fit. For example with strength training, weak people, because they're too weak and too lazy to train, will accuse those who do train of doing so because they're insecure. If they can turn that thing into a negative because they don't have it and they can flip it on his head, they can feel better about themselves not having it. The same goes for masculinity.
Even the term "hyper-masculinity" is silly. This suggests that one can be "too masculine". Why? Only because they attach these negative things to it. Notice that there's no such thing as "hyper-femininity".110
They usually dislike guys who are sensitive to the point of abuse both physical and mental.
I'm fine with guys being super muscled protein guzzling machines but they need to respect than not all guys want to be that way and it's not unmanly to show emotions.
Example most super feminine women would try to help a emotionally hurt woman.
But a super masculine man couldn't care less about a man who is emotionally damaged as they see it as weakness.
It's why we don't have masculinism because super manly men don't help other men.
That is what makes Feminists say 'toxic masculinity', even if they do use the term inappropriately.20
Because it can go too far. Toxic masculinity certainly exists. The problem is that feminists think everything is toxic masculinity.
Are butch women considered to have toxic masculinity then? Or can only men have it? And if that's the case, doesn't that contradict the notion that gender is binary?10
It doesn't bother me if a man is hyper-masculine, hyper-sensitive, etc. It's how he treats other people that's important; whether he's considerate, sincere, etc. :)20
Because someone who is doing something to excess is usually a sign of over compensation.
You find it attractive but to everyone else it's annoying they always seem to be trying so hard and expecting everyone around them to see them as good as they think they are. If they were women they would be the 'basic bitch'0
Like a lot of things - Once they don't impact on me, I don't mind them - I am mostly neutral about them10
I don't think it is. It's still mostly the ones who are deemed not masculine enough who are frowned upon the most.
Also, these terms are very vague. There's hardly a definite definition of what "hyper-masculinity" even is. It's very subjective.0
I don't know of many who actually frown upon it. Of the ones who do they are generally unhappy people, with a judgmental nature.10
There is such a thing? Maybe if you take too much steroids and your hormones are overly imbalanced, but really it's guys being guys.0
Because we all were in Jr. High at one time but a vast majority of us move passed it. it's funny when you see some never do.0
Because our society is still 'normal' enough to dislike things that are obnoxious, pointless and a supposed threat.0
The only people who frown on it are incels who can't match up to biological standards or bitter bitches who got hurt by a guy like this.0
We are conditioned to feel comfortable in certain environments based on how much we feel that we contrast with our own environment.0
Outside of the media and gender studies class I really don’t think it is.0
Gitten into a bar fight was one of the most fun things I’ve did0
I just frown upon it if it harms the man and his body0
It's kind of extreme. Not everyone likes extremes10
It's only bad when it gets too far such as when guys start getting badly injured or killed.0
It's the less emotional side possibly0

I like masculine guy. but when it gets to a point where the guy is so muscular i'm afraid he's going to break me
or if he acts too aggressive and never opens up
I just don't perceive it as being good boyfriend material. The stereotypical masculine guy doesn't seem to be a healthy way of living. Plus hypermasculine guys sometimes seem too eager to prove their dominance and manliness. That makes then less manly in my POV, since confidence is a huge aspect of masculinity, and being insecure about masculinity is quite paradoxal. What a turn off. Like just assume who you are and your interests, whatever they are. If it's wrestling, good for you :) but if it's dancing, or being well dressed it's ok too
you've got a pretty good grasp on this that blends my view and @Wowgirl10q 's view
@DocilexElle to me it meant sexy/alpha I'm really learning
