My view is that we should strip or not allow "males" to call out being men as that is something of an honor or to be cherished.

Some remain stunted as boys, and should not be called men.

Being a man should only reference and reflect the good and positive traits of masculinity, and not the toxic ones.

Right now society and folks merge the two into one, and it gets muddy.
