I think your response, “Just because women don’t want to have sex with you doesn’t mean they are teases.” is very different to the mocking examples you gave regarding virginity and living in basements. So while I agree that mocking a man in regards to his sexual prowess does contribute to toxic masculinity, pointing out the very real fact that women are in no way obligated to have sex with him is really important. Many men genuinely think that consent cannot be withdrawn. In fact I had a man say exactly that here on Medium. So its really important we call them out on that belief.
