the term, ”hybrid masculinity”, is an, "academic", feminist relabeling of softboy pejorative. A way to stigmatize feminine men who get angry at the fact that most women don't like feminine men.
Original Softboy Definition
Which was written by Alan Hanson.
“He is emotionally intelligent [but] He is still a dick.”
Hybrid Masculinity Definition
From societypages.org and the Men and Masculinities journal:
“Simply put, men are behaving differently, taking on politics and perspectives that might have been understood as emasculating a generation ago”[...]“however, we argue that research shows that this is most often happening in ways that don’t actually fundamentally alter gender and sexual inequality or masculine dominance” and “hybrid masculinities are better understood as obscuring”
Both above definitions both mean, “feminine”, but you havent cut your balls off yet so you are still oppressive and problematic.
(Reminder to insert the images of feminine-cels threatening suicide because women hate that they look feminine)
