Butterflies Are Free, But Only for Girls

This string of tweets almost got by me, coming as it did right in the midst of the events in Charlottesville a few weeks ago. But in preparing for my August Twitter round-up, I came across it and don't want it to be forgotten.

The string of tweets begins with this:

Hey everyone I'm a clown and I just got back from face painting at a picnic and here's my take on male violence in America.
The rest of the tweets are now missing from the original post, but are included and given context in this story on Bustle.

If you already know the phrase "toxic masculinity," this story will not surprise you, though it will make you sad.
