Things Men Do That Shows You They’re Insecure, According To TikTok

If you want answers to some burning question you have, it seems that TikTok is the place to get them. Ask any question and that app is going to have people coming out of the woodwork, ready to share their opinions with you.

One user, @richtiktoxic, starts a lot of interesting conversations on TikTok. The most recent one that’s blowing up is about things men do that show they’re insecure.

Working Out Is Only For Men I Guess

What is it with gym bros who insist on constantly letting everyone know that they go to the gym, and that they’re stronger than you?

Good for you for spending 4 hours a day in the gym Brad.

“Blame Women For Everything”

Sure, maybe she might be to blame in some situations, but she can’t be the one to blame in every situation.

You have to be able to take accountability for your own role in the problems too.

The Server Can’t Know That It’s Not His Money!!

If she has the money, it makes her happy to pay for it, and she’s willing to pay for it, how could someone have a problem with that?

He just thought the server would judge him that much for letting his girlfriend pay?

Supporting A Woman Isn’t A Bad Thing

#stitch with @richtiktoxic this was a meal. this fed me superstraight #toxicmasculinity

At some point in time, a very specific group of men has decided that a man supporting a woman must be a simp or must be doing something wrong.

Luckily, there are lots of men who disagree with that.

Justice For T-Swift

Just because she’s mainstream doesn’t mean you need to pretend that her music isn’t catchy as hell!

You’re allowed to tell us that you listened to Taylor Swift’s 22 on your birthday.

Just Drink What You Want To Drink?

Look, pina coladas and strawberry daiquiris are delicious. There’s no reason to walk around pretending that they’re not.

Please just drink what you want to drink and stop trying to act like certain drinks make you more masculine.

Unprovoked (And Unnecessary) Bragging

#stitch with @richtiktoxic got to love yourself first #fyp #foryou #xyzbca

Bragging about all the great things you do or constantly trying to hype yourself up usually gets to the point where you’re over-hyping and then people just aren’t going to be interested.

There’s a time and a place to boost yourself, and that’s not all the time.

Stay Away From KPop Idols

#stitch with @richtiktoxic we all know they are just jealous of our kpop boys #kpop

It’s okay if you’re not into Kpop music. You could just choose to say nothing about it.

You don’t need to insert your opinion into something that you don’t know anything about.

“I Have To Pick Just One?”

Any man who refers to himself as a “super straight” is waving a big ol’ red flag for you to see.

If you choose to ignore it, it’ll probably come back to bite you.

Making Fun Of You In Front Of Girls

Men who make fun of their friends when they’re in front of other women are just trying to make themselves look better by putting their friends down.

And anyone who would do that? Don’t pick him.

He Went Off

There is no right definition of what it means to be “masculine.” If you identify as a man, you get to identify as a man.

There shouldn’t be rules around what does or doesn’t count.

He Did Not Stutter

This man just had his list go on and on, and it seems like he probably could have kept going if TikTok had longer video time settings.

Sometimes it’s hard to pick just one issue.
