In my story one of my LI’s is a “fem-boy” or a boy who dresses femine or has more femine qualities
I am bi/pan but obviously im not a fem boy. so i wanted to make sure this wasnt offensive in anyway
to anyone (and if theres a better term anyone knows of id like that too )
It’s totally fine! It’s honestly a good question. What I mean by sexualizing, is like fetishizing them for the fact that they are acting feminine, so saying uncomfortable things such as “I know it’s big” and “rail me” (which are popular phrases used on social media) is what I mean by sexualization. Afterall, it is also sexual harassment. It makes acting “feminine” as a boy a sexual thing, rather than just a choice, or something that people enjoy to portray. Just let femboys live–no need to paint them in a sexual light. Authors need to be careful about that. I hope that makes sense.
