>You have to realize that it's a number of these traits that make up the package of a person. I'm don't really care if you're fat as fuck if you're nice and respectful, just as I really don't care if you actually are a cuckold her lets his wife get fucked by 50 other guys. Does that mean I'm going to stop making fun of it? No. If you're cool and respectful am I going to bring it up? No.
People created the word "soyboy" to describe a specific trend they noticed that converged on one or a few outwardly identifiable things.
But now you're breaking that thing up into atomic traits, saying that they're okay to have individually, and that it only matches the definition of this bad thing when they're together.
If it were just a random collection on negative male traits that happened to form one archetype, and not related to a person's female hormone/trait content, then why does this archetype have a name that implies it is directly related?
That archetype, with that name, encapsulates a statement that a general decline in male quality is directly related to biochemical feminization, and that this feminization is occuring; the fact that it's used as a slur implies this trend is an unambiguously negative thing; and the bile I've seen out of some people over the existence of these "soyboy" and "numale" people in our society at all makes it seem like they consider this event an epidemic that requires extermination in order to resolve.
Am I wrong? Since you haven't justified any link between the name "soyboy" and the loosely connected archetype you just described, death of the author applies, and I can only connect the dots as I see them.
>Numale are manchildren with no true sense of self respect.
Considering how less tolerant society is of childlike traits in adult men than women, even the synonym "manchildren" is a bit misandrist. And again, when words for these archetypes are created, it can only be assumed that information is embedded in these new words, considering the easy associations that are formed on hearing the words.
Are you going to play dumb to the fact that "numale" is obviously meant to sound like "new male?" Are you going to play dumb to the fact that this definition being used as a slur, is a value judgment on the concept attached to it?
Again, I'm only making connections between what these silly little neologisms sound like, and what they probably mean in the context of how they're being used. So far, the definitions you're giving me are little more than evasive, generic negatives that don't justify the connection between a word's connotations, and its value judgments.
With regards to "self-respect," every time I've heard that word being used, it's really code for "respect the things about your self that we
think you should respect." And since the value of the respected traits then comes from without and not within, this is in fact a betrayal of one's true traits, and a disrespect to what lies within oneself, in favor of what is without.
That is hardly self-respect.
Anything that is itself, inherently embodies the trait most essential to what that "self" is. Therefore, inherently, everyone and everything respects itself. Only a denial of one's nature in favor of the outside is true self-disrespect.
