TOXIC MASCULINITY IN HISTORY: In honor of UW-Whitewater professor Kathleen Elliott’s suggestion that the evils of “toxic masculinity” should be taught starting in kindergarten, I looked up the death toll on the Titanic. Sure enough, according to the figures I found, the survival rate for women was high–74%. For men, not so much. Only 16% survived. And it wasn’t just a class thing. Third-class (steerage) women were more likely to survive (49%) than first-class men (32%). N.B.: The reason for the difference was not that women are better than men at treading water.
