Can we just agree to stop using this word as a bastardized term of endearment? I mean seriously. It makes the user sound like a bae headed idiot.I know that language changes in form and meaning. I get it. But this one just make the user sound so damn lazy. So lazy that they shortened a 4 letter word. (At least FUCK is the short form of procreate.) So lazy they can’t manage to come up with a term of endearment that ACTUALLY means something endearing. So uninformed and uneducated that they can’t be bothered to find a word that is uplifting or beautifying to call the person they profess to care about.
I wish I could slap them in the back of the head every time they mutter the word. Eventually they’s gonna git that it a dis. Until then, I call upon all the word smiths and essayists out here in the electronic ether to help your fellow humans find a better word… babe, darling, honey, beau, dear, lover…
