Studies indicate that many men in the United States are refusing to wear face-masks because they see it as some sort of affront to their masculinity.
Of course, the real reason any person wears a face-mask is because they wish to protect themselves and their loved ones from a deadly virus, but many men also reportedly see it as an infringement upon their personal rights.
One TikTok user found a solution to this toxic masculinity, however!
@spencelogan_ revealed his findings in a recent post.
The young man's plan was praised widely on social media!

The man found himself putting a mask on pretty quick after talking to Logan.
"And he was like: 'I don't know what you're talking about,' and I was like: 'Oh, you're not… I get it, sorry. It's just, I'm gay and in our community, we don't wear masks others to let others know that we're down to hook-up.'"
"And he put his mask on. That's how we win this game, guys, we gotta use the toxic masculinity against them."
