Masculinity is the qualities or attributes regarded as characteristics of men. 
Toxic or poisonous masculinity is a skewed cultural construct. 
Noble or higher masculinity is what we should strive for. 
Quotes on manhood. "Being male is a matter of birth, being a man is a matter of choice." "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." "When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me."
The root issue of toxic masculinity is the deconstruction of the family. If we are dealing with a masculinity issue, I believe it is a result of fathers not modeling manhood, not guiding their sons on the journey of manhood. 
"If you do not initiate your young men into the tribe, they will burn down the village." African Proverb
Every young male needs a guide on the lifelong journey of manhood. 
Rite of Passage Letter
Proverbs 17:6 "..the glory of sons is their father."
