‘Soy boys’ is the far-right’s newest favorite insult

The alt-right, the internet-grown white nationalist movement that backs President Donald Trump, has long taken to calling its opponents “cucks.” Short for “cuckold,” the insult implies that its target is so unmanly that his partner is cheating on him with hypermasculine black men. It’s an efficient blend of racism and toxic masculinity. But “cuck” is becoming passé: the new alt-right insult is “soy boy.”
