What is a softboy and are you one?
"The real essence of a softboy is the deception and double standards, so also look for them as a red flag. If he says he supports women’s rights but treats women badly IRL; bad sign."

Damn, even such sweet termed guys as "softboys" are portrayed as evil-doers. Will this persecution of heterosexual men ever stop?

Article from Metro: What is a softboy?

RE: What is a softboy and are you one?
This article is impossible to read. She writes like she speaks, which is to say, she writes like the angry spinster that she is. Hard to imagine how long one could last if she opened her mouth IRL. But I digress; onto the subject at hand:

A softboy seems to be the the manosphere equivalent of a soyboy with a modicum of game. Or a player who's deep undercover. The guy will pretend they like Oprah, feminism, Cosmopolitan, da da da... when in reality, they're just hoping to work their way to her curtains. This is definitely not a new phenomenon - men have been talking their way into girls' pants since the beginning of time. Though why any guy would spend even a minute of time trying to appease the harpy who wrote this piece is beyond me.

What about if you treat women badly and don't support women's rights?

I'm just happy to see that, although she would vehemently deny this if stated in a more direct manner, that there's some awareness creeping in about how some of the people who advocate these feel good causes are just sociopaths trying to project in image of being good people and male feminists are more often than not just social predators.

Then you're what all women want.

RE: What is a softboy and are you one?
Key here is be a good looking dude. Whether fuckboy or softboy, being good looking is what qualifies women. The added laye of being arrogant and cocky (fuckboy) or brooding and emotional (softboy) is just a cherry on top for her hamster to justify fucking someone, instead of fucking them outright to begin with.

Retarded article written by a retarded woman.

RE: What is a softboy and are you one?
This meme is being pushed by multiple outlets recently, including Vice and other hipster publications-- the other one that was a bit annoying was the f**k boy one. I don't know why it's taken off so much, but it is basically an emoish dude into alt-culture with game who uses the emotional angle to get laid. Basically a repackaging of Kurt Cobain/ Jim Morrison type guys for the current era.

These sorts of women have such a chip on their shoulders that even the most effusively submissive man is going to set them off somehow, despite their insistence at not being misandrists. It's like a guy that insists he doesn't hate blacks but then goes on to say how much he hates hip hop, basketball, expensive sneakers, shiny red leather suits, gold dollar sign medallions, and everything black people say or do.
