"Current year" terms that piss you off

  • The site is having difficulties because our bandwidth is totally overextended. Our 1Gbps line is at 100% even when there aren't 8000 people on the site. We were supposed to get a second Gbps line months ago but I'm struggling to get technicians scheduled to set it up.

I don't have another term to add, but I do have a story that's on topic.

When I got a job at the local public school district we we're required to attend this orientation which was, I shit you not, a fucking Marxist education session that was meant to control our speech. For instance, we were told not to say "blind person" or "disabled person" but "person with blindness" so as not to identify the person with their disability.

That was over a decade ago. With how activism has progressed it would not surprise me if those well intentioned (but still bullshit) speech standards are considered LITERAL GENOCIDE today.

Was this in California or some other Socialist hellhole?

The constant misuse and abuse of the term "human rights".
So it's like this, I take it:

Old meaning: freedom of speech, protection from torture, right to vote, etc.

New meaning: protection from microaggressions, protection from misgendering, protection from toxic masculinity, etc.

2018 meaning: protection from not being allowed to force women to wax your balls

Or in the case of the city of Detroit, the activists chanting "Water is a human right" because they feel they shouldn't have to pay for it.

This is a little bit related to race issues, but... when normally browsing social media, my eyes tend to disintegrate when seeing

I call this the "When you" format. A white background, a single """"funny"""" stock image portraying something super relatable xd.
By that extension, you might as well add "X people be like" and "deadass". Why do so many people continue to be entertained by the exact same punchlines and stereotypes over and over again?

Cis and all of its forms. Cisgender, cissexist, cisnormative. I didn't like it when I first heard it—I didn't ask to be labeled—and I hated it when the troon/NPC cult community started throwing it around as an insult. Anyone who uses 'cis' unironically pisses me off, and there are few other words that have me clicking the back button faster to get away from your article.

Even the sound of it, the inflection and the pronunciation irks me. Cis. Isssss. Like a snake.

EDIT: And a recent one I just picked up on that irritates the shit out of me: tone policing. So any time an SJW chimps out on Twitter with a dozen posts about straight white heteronormativity and privilege, you are not allowed to respond with "lol calm down." Because these insufferable people have a label ready for anyone arguing against them.

"Boomer" being used to downplay anyone over age 30. Because my 60-year-old parents fucked after dad made it home from World War II in 1958?

All SJW-isms that you just know some neurotic, would-be authoritarian, control freak womyn or troon with neon hair came up with solely so zhe would always be right and you would always be wrong.

Anyone who takes terms like "mansplaining" seriously should be laughed at until they commit suicide.

But you know what I can’t stand? Referring to people as “bodies”, like “violence against black and brown or trans bodies” or whatever. Why do people even do this?

I think it's an attempt to get you to visualize something concrete instead of the abstraction called up by a phrase like "black people." It's emotional manipulation, basically.

Also, "bodies" don't have agency. People do. Progressives think everyone is an oppressor or oppressed, and they think all minorities are agency-free victims, so... "black and brown bodies."

aren't we supposed supposed to avoid judging people by their color - or lack thereof - now?

No, that was what that wanted for the last 70 or so years since the Civil Rights era. Now they want the exact opposite for totally valid reasons. Try to keep up, bigot.

All these words are overused and lazy ways to express ideas. It seems like everyone relies on these words to stay with the times and appear smart (especially problematic)

That's because they're terms that started on far-left college campuses. SJWs are trying to borrow the intellectual cachet of academia... without recognizing that fewer and fewer people respect academics because of their silly, extreme leftist ideas.

Triggers - As I've seen discussed elsewhere on the 'Farms, mentions of triggers and trigger warnings make me think of items that could unknowingly disturb a victim of PTSD or other traumatic experience. To trivialize the concept as a list of stuff that merely makes someone uncomfortable is a huge disservice to those trying to cope with the aforementioned traumas.

Similar to the above, "trigger" is a real psychological term that has been appropriated by SJWs to make them and their stupid ideas seem legitimate.

Can somebody tell me why 'yes queen slayyyyyy' is a thing? I really, really hate it.

It's from gay culture, and progressives think gay people, by virtue of being gay, are morally and otherwise superior to normal straight people.

Oh yeah, and "fake news" or "alt-right."

I never even heard those terms before Current Year.

"Alt-right" existed as a term before the '16 election, but it was mostly a self-applied label by loud and proud white supremacists, white nationalists, and others in that small orbit. Hillary Clinton redefined it in a campaign speech into a slur to mean all of that plus Trump-supporting, non-establishment, right-of-center voters.

"Fake news" was literally coined by the mainstream news media after Trump's election to denigrate all non-MSM news sources. Trump reversed it and used it against them, and now they pretend he made it up.
