All of the issues covered by Toxic Masculinity are also covered by MRA.

There is a bias if we do not also cover the ways that Toxic Femininity harms women.

Also, it is very difficult to use the Toxic Masculinity article as a credible argument unless there is fair coverage of the other side of things.

It should be stated that things such as slut shaming are examples of toxic femininity. Many people do not seem to actually grasp what these definitions really are. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.21.135.139 (talkcontribs)

Sorry, without links to external sites with a feminist perspective that use this term, it's not coming back. Monadic (talk) 01:33, October 23, 2016 (UTC)

I'm offering this as a final example of what I mean. Fine if you do not accept it just because the term is not used. The issue I see is that MRA does not understand what Toxic masculinity means and would benefit from seeing a contrasting definition to help with clarity. 69.21.135.139 20:42, October 23, 2016 (UTC)

I suggest that definitions of toxic femininity should also include the belief that women do not or cannot abuse others. Women who do abuse are often whitewashed out of existence, because "women are emotional" and vicious, unpredictable behaviour by women is therefore not a real problem.

Hello Imaginary40 -- I, too, am a survivor of abuse by a woman. However, toxic femininity isn't the reason why abuse by women gets erased. Benevolent sexism is, and we already have an article about that. Monadic (talk) 15:50, September 4, 2017 (UTC)
That article is a stub and does not currently mention female-perpetrated abuse at all.  Imaginary40 (talk) 09:54, September 10, 2017 (UTC)
