A Fuck Boy is a specific type of male Millennial douchebag
. There have been equivalents to the modern Fuck Boy, the annoyingly macho and bad mannered young man archetype, across each generation. Yet the current batch of them, thanks to smartphones and social media making the ability to lead an unproductive and narcissistic lifestyle especially easy, are particularly obnoxious. They are the kind of people that Baby Boomers like to point to as proof that Millennials are morally bankrupt and lazy.
As a rule, they are disrespectful and rude to nearly everyone with a pulse who makes the mistake of coming into contact with them. They're vain and narcissistic and have particular obsessions with their phones: especially the acts of taking selfies and posting about how awesome they are on social media. They embrace the most annoying social and fashion trends of the present moment, such as, currently, vaping
and man buns
. They especially love hooking up
with women on dating apps such as Tinder and are the kind of guys who send women pictures of their genitals. As women nowadays are becoming wiser to their bullshit and fucking them less, Fuck Boys always exaggerate their sexual conquests.
The etymology of the word is disputed; it's either from black subculture, referring to posers who act way more tough than they are or from the gay community: referring to predominantly straight men who have gay hookups just to have sex when they can't get women such as in a prison setting.
Marc posts selfies on Facebook and Instagram all day and won't shut up about his Tinder conquests, he's a real Fuck Boy.
