That's right up there with "fauxmosexual."

I just read "Fauxhemian" and thought surgeons came up with a name for repairing a woman's virginity.

/Fauxhymen would make an awesome band name

They can all go fauxck themselves into oblivion.

How about 'douchebag', as in 'Look at that douchebag'.
 
2010-03-23 07:07:13 PM
So this is sorta along the same lines:


I have a question. The word gay didn't use to mean homosexual. Gays/the media changed the meaning of the word....which is completely fine by me.

I want to know why they think they have the right to lock the word down. When I use the phrase, "that's gay", it has nothing to do with gays.

So why do they get the right to add to a words meaning, but other people can't?

Funny this should come up. Future wife and I were talking about hipsters. I am for all purposes retired. I ENJOY doing groceries and driving the roads at 9am when the crazy drivers are gone. So I go in to Hannaford grocery store when the old people rule and I get a dirty look from all the Frogs. It definitely is the old peeps time.

So I asked Lynne, "How do I make them like me?" Her answer? "Dress like an old person." So I say "But won't I like like a hipster?" She replied "Just yell you are retired to anyone that will listen to you! You have got to gain their trust!"

Why couldn't they just stick with "Unemployed"?

kukukupo: How about 'douchebag', as in 'Look at that douchebag'.

Apparently, Doucheoisie (as in bourgeoisie) came in second place, which is a much better and more appropriate name for them (yeah, I'm well aware its redundant).

Full name: Pathetic Doucheoisie

I'm calling 'em that for now on.

Yes, words change, and add on meanings, but to pretend that it has nothing to do with gays is disingenuous. Own up to the fact that it is mildly homophobic and rather stupid.

We gays generally don't think we own the world... but we are also tired of the "oh, it's not related to homosexuality" defense. ORLY? I guess you are going back to the original meaning of the word, happy and carefree, which is, I guess, a bad thing?

And what the fark does that have to do with hipsters? Are you just feeling so oppressed by gays that you looked for the most tenuous outlet for your rant? Next up: ranting about the quality of airline foods in a thread about beer!

Hipsters suck.

They're worse than emos.

Gods, can't you kids come up with any counter-culture that isn't borrowed from Gen X? Shiat.

Meh. I voted for trendslut, I think.

It's just the poor man's version of trustafarian, which is one of my favorite words ever. Hell, I think I already used it today.

And many, many, many times while going to college in a liberal town. I get along with real hippies quite well, but the trustafarian is another breed altogether. Probably some of the other hippies I knew could fall back on mom and dad, but they just chose to live like they couldn't.

Hence the beauty of the moderation system. As stupidly high school as it is, if you don't have a star no one's gonna see a discussion you start unless they click an extra button.

Started going there to watch the best-of clips from the Leno/Conan/Letterman/Kimmel awesomeness. Check in now and then, and somehow managed a star from a long drunken rant. Good times.

That's like my mother-in-law's rant about how gay people stole the biggest icon of happiness and innocence for all girls: The rainbow.

She just got a new car, so of course I'm sending her one of these:

As for these hipsters, it's just going to be history repeating itself. Sure it's all carefree right now, but just wait until they actually need something from socieity. They're gonna make the greed and selfishness of Baby Boomers look like a kindergarten playground compared to how they'll wind up.

I once told a girl I know to GTFO after she used 'that's so gay' about 3 times in a conversation. 6th grade called, they want to talk to your parents... I'm all for colorful language (Go Biden!), but that phrase is ignorant. She couldn't do anything better than to criticize others, so I wasn't going to waste time on her.

Just heard Demitri Martin's bit about this on the radio the other day:

I really like rainbows but I'm straight, so under my rainbow sticker I had to add "Not gay". But I donn't want people to think I'm homophobic so I had to add "But supportive" under that. Hogging up refractive light? Pretty greedy gays. Pretty greedy...

If not hipster, the rightful name, I personally favor the more straightforward "dipshiat" or perhaps "dumbass." If the douchebag tags it to full Palin-American, then combos are good, i.e. "dumbass hipster dipshiat." "Farkup" may also be used at times.
