Can we shut up about how all masculinity is ‘toxic’ now? Regular guys were heroes.
And it’s directly because they were willing to put their own lives on the line to protect the young women during a mass shooting event in California.
That’s heroism; there’s no denying that.
Feminists are always saying that they ‘don’t need a man’ to protect them, but here’s why they just might want to reconsider their position.
Several men helped the girls hide behind a pool table, then, they dogpiled and used their bodies to shield them. When there was a break in the shooting, they knew they had to move, so they smashed the windows with barstools and were guiding the girls out.
Watch one of the heroes give his account:
The anti-cop crowd can STFU, too. Off-duty officers were acting as human shields to protect the many students attending the college event held in that bar that night.
One witness, Teylor Whittler said that once the shooting started, a group of men got on their knees and turned their backs to the shooter to protect others. Whittler, who was at the bar in a group celebrating the birthday of her friend Nellie Wong, said that the men were ‘ready to take a bullet for any single one of us.‘
Whittler and two of her friends appeared on Good Morning America and gave her account.
WHITTLER: I was on the dance floor, dancing, and all of a sudden I heard the shots, I turned around, and I saw it was an actual person with a gun, and I couldn’t believe it at first, but my initial reaction was to run and take cover. So I took cover, a bunch of people dog-piled on top of each other. And after the first sound of shots it was silent for like, five seconds, and then a couple of guys next to me got up and started sprinting to the back door. Everyone just yelled, ‘Run, he’s coming!’ There were at least 50 people that all tried getting up at once and running out the back door. I ended up getting caught in the ground and stumbled over by multiple people. I got hit in the head by a stool that was being picked up to throw through a window, until some guy came up behind me and grabbed me and said, ‘Get up, we have to go!’
GMA host, Robin Roberts asked her how people were ‘doing the best that they could in that situation to help as much as they could.‘
WHITTLER: So while we were all dog-piled over at the side, there were multiple men that got on their knees and pretty much blocked all of us with their back toward the shooter, ready to take a bullet for any single one of us. And just the amount of people that made sure everyone got out okay, or if they were out, they made sure, they went around to every single person around them and asked them if they were okay and if they needed a phone to call their family, or just in general, any way they could help. It was awesome.
That doesn’t sound like toxic masculinity to me, it sounds like heroism.
Watch Teylor Wittler talk about what it was like to be protected by those men:

Thank God for those real men that were in the bar that night.
Every single one of them is a hero.
