Creed II and Toxic Masculinity

I saw Creed II last night. The real villain of the film was a criminal mastermind named Toxic Masculinity - which repeatedly pushed two men into a televised arena so they could beat each other to a bloody pulp.

The prize wasn't money or a fancy belt; Creed and Drago were competing to "win" basic human needs like love, honor, self-respect, a sense of belonging, and life purpose. It's hard not to feel sorry for guys trapped within a society that would make such brutal conditions necessary in order to be accepted as men.
