You are thinking of masculinity with an old paradigm. Like one that is entirely defined by physical attributes.
Remember that in the 21st century, masculinity is of the mind and personality. Since the mind and personality can be improved, so can ones masculinity and it begins with philosophy.
The man that produces and holds true to his own values and executes in his virtues is a masculine man regardless of his brute strength.
Masculinity also has to do with the desire for romantic love and the actions taken to express it in the form of love dynamics.
The rational male ego and rational female ego desires true love. The non-rational ego accepts a mind body dichotomy which means that romantic love doesn’t exist to them.
The masculine male has defined his morality aka values and the virtues to get there and does not waver from them despite outside forces acting upon him.
Masculinity and femininity are thus the enactment of the objectivist philosophy. With romantic love being their complete integration.
