This website show some of the most popular tweets that have been popping up with the tag #MasculinitySoFragile where people post about things that are potentially emasculating for men. All of these things are super simple things which show how fragile a man's masculinity is. For example, one of the posts even says "#MasculinitySoFragile it's wounded by a hashtag". Something so simple as watching a show that features a princess is considered "gay" because it's about girls wearing dresses and taking care of animals. Masculinity is a construct that can be easily taken a part because it has no ground to stand on. The only thing that keeps masculinity in check is reinforcement from other people and the media. There is no biological determinant of masculinity in men.
