    One Of The Worst Words Imaginable..

    'Init'. It's just such a horrible colloquialism (slang) and it makes me cringe every time I hear it. I've ranted at numerous people over how bad the word is >.<. Honestly, why not just say "Isn't it" - actually, that sounds rather confusing (hence why 'init' came about.) Why...

    I think stupid is so prejudicial and is only used to hurt someone.  Every person has their spike of creativity and genius...and every person has their weak areas.  If you call out the weaknesses, you miss the strengths.  Stupid is a judgmental way of identifying...

    Weird, I know, but I've always found the word wholesome to be especially unappealing. I don't hate it as such, but it's just... nasty. I dislike the connotation, I guess, because the literal meaning isn't all that offensive.

    "Cute","girlie," and anything else along those lines sets me off. I lose it when people use those words to describe me, and I have no clue why. It probably has something to do with my intense hatred towards stereotyping and gender roles.
