To hell with toxic masculinity—That noxious term indelibly ingrainedIn minds so duped and blind they fail to seeOur worthy sons should never be ashamed. No baby boy is born to be constrainedBy chromosomes or nationality.No baby boy is born to be defamedFor who he is and who he’s meant to be. Dividers hex and vex societyTill patriarchy’s name is trashed and stainedBy twisted takes on inequality—For far too long men’s gender has been blamed. Our worthy sons are slammed and damned and framedFor heinous acts in long-gone history.They’re criticized and demonized and maimedIn wars that weaponize identity. Woke, factious terms like male supremacy(Designed to geld the gallant) have inflamedThis mother’s ire to fight vile misandry—To stand up and to shoot down hatred aimedAt worthy sons. . .
