Is Hegemonic Masculinity the main reason why males are told to "suck it up" when they have any Mental Illness?

Does having testosterone and having a _ _ _ _ make one invincible and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound as well?

Why don't males get that same empathy, compassion and understanding that women get who have Mental Illness?

    Renaming toxic masculinity to hegemonic masculinity isn't going to get men to accept it.

    You see, the issue isn't just the name of the theory, but also and more importantly the theory itself and the reason why it exists in the first place.
