Good one, r4. If someone says "the gay lifestyle" you just know he/she is a piece of crap.

by Anonymousreply 609/19/2013

On that note, r4, "sexual preference". I didn't think much about these terms before and thought they were harmless PC-isms till it was pointed out here. Really nasty connotations there.

The worst is "alternative lifestyle".

Eric Mabius of Ugly Betty says it, and I know he doesn't mean anything and is probably trying to be PC but it just sounds so horrible and condescending.

Not the terrible plots, the wooden acting, the sophomoric dialogue, it's the constant reaching out that does it.

"Reach out" gets my vote as well, r182. Perhaps it's appropriate when phoning an AA buddy who has strayed from the 12 steps, or writing a letter to your mother who disowned you, but in most other situations "contact" will do just fine.

My former colleagues at an educational publishing firm fucking LOVED corporate speak. I heard "reach out" about one million times daily, along with such gems as "best practices," "ideate," "actionable items" (yeah, you freaks, some of the shit that goes on here is actionable, but not the way you think), "bubble up" (this one always sounded like a reference to some unsavory bodily function), "circle back," "lock and load," "impact" used as a verb, "impactful," "on a granular level," "let me puree that for you," "value added," "core competencies," "buy-in," "moving parts," "scalable," and probably hundreds of others that I thankfully can't recall at the moment.

Ugh. These babbling dolts were supposed to be guiding students to love and master reading and writing, and this was the best they could do with their own language?

[quote]Using "asshole" as an insult is mildly homophobic.

Oh, please, r211. I can buy your argument where "butthurt" is concerned, but "asshole" as an insult is not meant to suggest the idea of anal sex; it's just meant to liken the recipient of the insult to the ignominious body part from whence comes shit.

Anyone who says or writes nonsense about 'pairing' a certain wine with a certain food. JEEBUS PETE!!!! Why can't you just say 'serving'. Pairing sounds like you're going to mate the two. And that would make a mess!

Anything in 'hipster talk', like this ridiculous sentence: "A chipper is giving a frado the frigidaire." WTF?

Just look at this nonsense, hipsters are insufferable!

bronson - beer

bust a moby - to dance

chipper - a woman who's easy

clothesline - the gossip that is on the scene

cronkite - boy

deck - a key word for most Hipsters, similar in meaning to the antiquated fresh. To be deck is to be up on the latest trends, cutting edge, and/or hip.

fin - the opposite of deck, similar to outdated terms like "wack" and "lame."

frado - an ugly guy who thinks he's good-looking

the frigidaire - the cold shoulder

jerry - a stoner or hippie

kale - money

midtown - uncultured or unhip

piece - cell phone

shitter - someone who constantly looks like he/she is taking a shit.

tassel - girl

I did not know hipsters talked this way. It is insufferable, but as long as hipster boys continue to wear girls' jeans, especially cords, I can deal.

'Help me understand' what 'belt and suspenders' refers to, besides the literal translation? I'm out of the business-speak arena -- thank GOD!

by Anonymousreply 22809/24/2013

Because I, like you, R229, was, like, "WTF" over all this hipsterical terminology, I googled "frado," thinking it probably should have been "fredo," after the character in The Godfather. Turns out there's a "Hipster Handbook." Click on "glossary" and there you are.

by Anonymousreply 22909/24/2013

'Help me understand' what 'belt and suspenders' refers to, besides the literal translation? I'm out of the business-speak arena -- thank GOD!

It's used to describe 2 ways to keep something bad from happening (in other words, you don't want to be caught with your pants down so you wear a belt AND suspenders, in case one fails).

We used it a lot when designing store systems. It referred to two ways to do something in case of a failure. For example, if a store's register #1 was responsible for obtaining credit authorization and that computer went down, authorizations would fail over to register #2. But we gave register #3 the same ability in the rare case of both registers 1 and 2 went down. So register #2 was the belt, and register #3 was the suspenders, thus insuring the store would always receive credit authorization.
