*Deep Breath* let's see...

Feels - It's the one word I always come across (mostly on tumblr) and it's one of those sayings that makes my teeth grind especially when it comes to describing having feelings for.

Amazeballs - Normally I don't mind words that describe something amazing or outstanding but to use the word Amazeballs just irritates me. Amazeballs sounds like the name of a snack that got discontinued due to the name having something to do with pornographic content, that's going a little to far but that's who I felt about it when seeing that slang.

Prego or Preggers - To describe Pregnant or Pregnancy by using that just irritates me because both those words sound more like Pringle the more you use them.

Yeah, I'm not the hugest fan of internet slang terminology in the slightest.

I really dislike hearing women saying "Mah, Baby Father, " In a really ghetto, ignorant, way to refer to a man who is no longer in their lives who happened to father their child. This is just stupid and it makes me gnash my teeth when I hear it.  I know you might have some disdain for the man who fathered your child and you want in some way to distance him from the role he once played in your life, but it is just dumb the way some women say it. This gets particularly confusing when you have a woman using the term "Mah, baby father," to describe more than one male who have fathered more than one of her children.

I also do not like "ratchet" as in "that was so ratchet man!" I had a girl in one of my classes who used the term constantly to describe everything she thought was cool or dumb. And she would say it in this high pitched voice to put emphasis on how "ratchet" something was. I really wanted to strangle her.

I also can't stand "Booyakasha!" A lot of young boys between the ages of 6-11 belt this phrase out constantly where I live. I was in line at the store with three nine year old boys behind me and they kept saying. I wanted to turn around and punch one of them in the face.

And yeah, a pet peeve of mine is people who use internet acronyms in everyday conversations. My particular hot button one is when someone says something like "I was so OMG when I saw that, seriously LOL" or just lulz... :mozgus:

When someone refers to their spouse as their "hubs" or "wifey". It just makes me cringe and feel nauseated at the same time.  :puck: I'm also not too big on "besty" for best friend, although I can tolerate it.

When people say "moist"

After hearing a 48 year old woman say that she's "as moist as a cellar down there. All mildew-y", I got to agree with you.  :isidro:  :troll:

Seriously though a word that I've been hearing for a while now and even more so in my place of work that I don't particularly care for is "mixology". I don't know how official the term is, but I hear it a lot in reference to bartenders and people serving drinks, I guess to give the job a kind of scientific professionalism. It just sounds so phony and when I hear it announced on the radio, as in, "come sign up for classes in mixology" or "after this course you'll be an expert in mixology", it annoys me. I get that there is a level of science involved in making mixed drinks but lets be real, you're a bartender. No need to call yourself a "mixologist". :schierke:

Some of these feel more like what someone would be afraid to hear rather than what they hate to hear.

Fantastic pairing of avatar and post.

That's a PROBLEMATIC statement, I think it comes from hundreds of years of liberal thought being APPROPRIATED by dull zealots and parroted 140 characters at a time. I can't wait until they have their come to God moment with the reactionary conservatism they were born for so they can become the literal puritans they were always meant to be.

Not a word but a phrase, "It is what it is."

There's something so defeatist about it. My coworker says it at least twice a day about any topic that you can think of. I never noticed it until I started working with this horrible person. It's even worse when my current romantic interest said it to me, which felt like being punched.

Huh, I also worked with a person who would say it, not as often as that, though. She was a pretty positive person, but sometimes shit just happened and it was her way of saying "Well, this sucks, let's accept it's suckage, quit whining about it and move forward."  :ganishka: I guess it depends on the person who's using this phrase's attitude and the context it's used in. I never particularly liked the saying and sometimes it seems like people just use it to be dismissive, like "It sucks, but I don't want to deal with it."

In high school, I had a friend who I always enjoyed talking to and had the utmost respect for as a very smart and reasonably progressive person. I have never been one for debate amongst the presence of more than a couple of people, but my friend always held herself very well in the heat of a large class discussion and was an enjoyable orator. When we went our separate ways to university, she and I met up a few months later in our hometown. We were discussing something over a drink and the conversation culminated in her accusing me of 'mansplaining' and being 'conditioned by patriarchal power structures'. Unsurprisingly, I was quite taken aback by this and had no response, being rather confused and hurt that a former bastion of healthy, calm discussion had shut down the conversation with what seemed like ad hominem. From then on it felt as if I had lost my friend, as if she was the one who had been conditioned.

The rub of this tale is that I don't like the word 'mansplaining'.

Well, if it makes you feel worse, that sort of attitude on your friend's part helped bring about this:



We can't even make peace with our friends, let alone change the hearts and minds of our ideological opponents. This, and the weight of History, is why I'm now a self-described misanthrope. It's the only way to be fair and stay sane in this brave new world.

BTW, I couldn't help but scroll up a bit and see this:
That's a PROBLEMATIC statement, I think it comes from hundreds of years of liberal thought being APPROPRIATED by dull zealots and parroted 140 characters at a time. I can't wait until they have their come to God moment with the reactionary conservatism they were born for

At least I'm never disappointed.

Cuck. I can't stand it, there's already a word for what they mean, quisling, stop killing my language.

I did not know these words were synonymous, but it makes sense given the context it's usually used in online. I always saw it as a self-identifying/describing word by the ones using it though (Cuckophobe? =).

Dogma, Conservatism.

Everytime i hear something as "because it says so", referred very generally to a code of laws or precepts i feel something contorting in my stomach. I feel there's something very wrong in following laws and tenets just for the sake of it. But that's what so many people do, without stop and thinking that maybe the one they're following is not the best of the possible system, and without even giving a chance to new potentially better ideas and instead discarding them automatically. It's like laws and dogmas were more important than searching what is objectively true and right.

Rural.

In my native language, Portuguese, it's really simple to pronounce, but in English it's a complete torture :mozgus:

And I'm really curious: you guys have trouble or think it is annoying to pronounce it, or the problem it's me who is not an English native speaker?
