I don’t think I use much modern slang unironically…but I’ll definitely use all the insufferable slang mentioned above ironically or just to be silly around hubby. Anyway, ones that make my eyes roll to the back of my head when they’re used sincerely:

”Broke the internet”, “Fam”, “Woke”, and “Cuck” which is just gross and over-misused.

I have teenagers with high IQs. They love slang. They are also fully literate. Each generation believes the subsequent one is filled with brain dead morons. Which reminds me of the meme they just sent me…

pearl311 :  lol…. Has ‘I’m shook’ made a comeback in the vernacular of the young ones?

That was a very old school term and I had to laugh because if you are a Golden Girls fan you would have heard Blanche use the term ‘I’m shook’ several times throughout the series.

If ‘I’m shook’ has made a resurgence I’m going to start dropping ‘mintox’ and ‘rad’ in my everyday conversation and hope it catches back on with the younger crowd. If you start hearing mintox and rad everywhere, you Bees will know my plan was successful!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

This is my main point of reference for the word “yeet” thanks to my 15 year old son.

I will use all kinds of slang when I’m being ridiculous, mostly to make a joke, be ironic, or emphasize how dumb or silly I think something is. 

Just because someone knows or uses slang doesn’t mean they’re automatically an idiot, but if some early 20s kid calls me fam, I’m going to be tossing a side-eye their way.

I LOVE old slang. Like black and white movies slang and how they have influenced culture. My favorite example of that is the movie Gaslight. It has Ingrid Bergman in it and it is AMAZINGLY good. I was just telling my boyfriend the other day that I think watching that move should be a requirement because it is literally where the term being gaslighted comes from aside from being a super good movie that perfectly shows what that term means.

I hate when men refer to women as “females”, it makes me feel like a test subject or the focus of a National Geographic documentary. I’ve noticed guys in their twenties say it more often than other age groups and when they say it, it’s usually not in reference to someone they respect.

ETA: Fam. Woke. Any and all of the words/noises anyone has ever said or made at the beginning of a hip hop or club track. That “brrrrrraght!!!” shit makes you sound like a broken vibrator, bro.

The ones that bug me are the abreviated words like “perf”, “ridic”, “whatevs”, “cray/cray cray”… I just dont get the point. What’s wrong with saying the whole word?! lol. My dad uses “Oh, snap!” allll the time (even doing the finger snap thing that goes along with it) thinking it makes him seem young & hip… it does not, but we just laugh internally and let him think he looks super neat lol.

Calling everyone with whom you have issues or don’t like “toxic.”

“Good on you” and “on accident” though I don’t know if these are slang or regionalisms.
