The Bachelorette Has a Toxic Masculinity Problem

Chad and Alex, The Bachelorette | Photo Credits: Rick Rowell, ABC

On The Bachelorette, roughly two dozen men compete for the right to propose to one woman. In order to prove that they're marriage material, the men have to be charming, confident and show how they would be able to provide for their future wife. But the men who are getting the most camera time this season don't do that. These guys -- Chad, Alex and Evan -- are more concerned with demonstrating that they're the alpha male of the house. And that's a problem.

Look: The Bachelorette and its brother have never been progressive in their depictions of gender roles, but the current season of The Bacheloretteis endorsing toxic masculinity to a vexing degree.

If confidence, bravery and protectiveness -- character attributes possessed by respectable Bachelorette contenders -- are traits that are culturally thought of as "good" and "masculine," then aggression, recklessness and dominance are toxically masculine.

Contestant (Season 7)

A spin-off series from ABC's hit reality show, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette follows one woman in the search for her own Mr. Right from a pool of 25 eligible young men. After several weeks of meeting different men, going on amazing dates, and learning about their home lives, The Bachelorette will have the opportunity to continue dating one bachelor in the real world by presenting them with a single, red rose. Before this can happen, The Bachelorette must follow a gradual process of elimination, as her initial 25 bachelors are narrowed down week by week. At any point along the way, should a man decide that he is no longer interested in The Bachelorette, he may reject her invitation to continue dating. This unique dating process will give both the bachelors and bachelorette an unforgettable experience and an opportunity to make new friendships and quite possibly find true love, but after all of this, will the man she chooses accept her rose, and if he does will he pop the question? The 5th season began May 2012 as 25 would-be suitors vie for the Bachelorette's hand.
