aggressive male behaviour that emphasizes the importance of being strong rather than being intelligent and sensitive

You use machismo to refer to men’s behavior or attitudes when they are very conscious and proud of their masculinity.
:arrow_forward: Charlie, naturally, has to prove his machismo by going on the scariest rides twice.

The expressin “aggrieved-white-man machismo” is interesting. I wonder if the adjective “aggrieved” comes from “grief”. Machismo might refer to the sort of attitude that is embodied by Biff Tannen, the villain in “Back to the Future II.”

“Hours after locking up the Republican presidential nomination this week, Donald Trump suggested that defaulting on the national debt could be a good thing. Economists and financial observers pointed out that his proposal to buy back U.S. debts for less than what America borrowed would send interest rates soaring and cripple the dollar’s vital status as the world’s safest investment.
Pressed to explain why he thinks a huge national lender like China would accept a loss on their investment in the United States on Sunday, Trump offered only a verbal shrug.”
