Left-wing news outlet Vox attacked Marines on Memorial Day, claiming in an article that the Marine Corps has a “toxic masculinity problem.”

The article, which was simply titled “The Marine Corps has a ‘toxic masculinity’ problem,” continued to claim that the Marine Corps often “marginalizes or mistreats female troops.”

Citing the Marines United nude photo sharing scandal, Vox staff writer and defense correspondent Alex Ward attempted to link the Marines with systemic sexism and listed ways how the Corps could get rid of their “toxic masculinity.”

“And to be fair, it’s not just the Marines. Sexual assault has increased in other services, and even in military academies,” concluded Ward in the article. “According to one Pentagon review, there were 6,172 reports of sexual assault last year.”

“So as the service tries to win battles around the world, the most important fight may be the one closest to home,” he continued. “The battle for the soul of the Marine Corps.”

The article was criticized by numerous other journalists on Twitter:

    The integration of women into combat units is a mistake, not only from their inability to keep up physically, but from the fact of mixing healthy young men and women together. The armed services find themselves trying to fight normal human sexuality instead of potential enemies.

    Women do not belong in places where they could be subjected to “toxic masculinity” if they cannot handle themselves as adult women. “Toxic masculinity” is a feminism euphemism for an environment that resists being feminized/ sissified.
