i was on fucking tumblr when fuckboy was coined

it was never a slur for gay or trans men and it really speaks to me that black language is always targeted as abusive or particularly misogynist, or particularly problematic

like the way white women use black speech patterns and aave to mime abusice and aggressive male behavior—which helps frame black men as particularly violent and misogynist

and what is tumblr good for but spreading misinformation like wildfire, so now these fucking posts about fuckboy being a slur are popping up like dasies, and conviniently no one ever reblogs the explanations that show it isn’t, so
