The dueling between machismo Latino male identities associated to Big M (e.g. strong loud controlling angry abusive) and little m (strong, reflective, listens, sensitive encourager leader humble), truly calls for us to examine toxic masculinity compared to appropriate masculine nobility. If we solely categorize Latinx males as Machismo we fail to examine those Latinx males who choose, work towards, and embrace noble characteristics and prefer to be leaders/family men/men of a more refined approach.
