what's the softboy discourse?
Our understanding based on what we’ve seen:
Cis dude who apparently calls himself a “soft boy” or his audience does or something I don’t even fucking know is outed as a sexual predator.
Cis women: Remember that even feminine men can be predators.
Everyone: Sounds legit.
Cis tumblr: Anyone who calls themself a softboy is a predator.
Trans men & enbies: Um, actually, we’re most of the people who use that word, so maybe don’t?
Radfems: Yeah, right. That just proves it’s accurate.
Cis tumblr: You heard ‘em! Softboy culture is all about predation!
Trans people who are fucking tired of huge swathes of tumblr taking all their political stances from radfems: *sigh and don their Down With Cis shirts*
