3 Gay

People see being gay as the most obscene think in the world. You don't like it when your persecuted for something about you. How would you feel if you were gay and you were seen as the lowest thing on earth. It also sucks that religious books tell people to hate them and kill them simply for who they are.

Especially Christianity. Just read Leviticus. People shouldn't be wasting so much effort on taking away gays rights and been nasty. If you're not gay you have no rights over a gay's life.

The lowest people on earth are pedophiles not gays anyway. At least taking away their rights will protect children.

We Christians don't hate gays just because we disagree with their lifestyles.

"That's gay" when used to describe something bad. Besides being a homophobic remark, it means "happy", and that should be the only definition for it.

I hate this word because many people say is gay something they don't like... some things deserve the word but other things don't deserve it only because they don't like it - rock2metal

Can’t they just use another word? - blackflower

Keep yourself safe - Not_A_Weeaboo

Those bullies... - MrCoolC

The best insult - BlueTopazIceVanilla

You seriously think that a wish of someone dying a good insult? - MrCoolC

On the toxicity of the internet these days... If you get easily offended, please stay away from multiplayer settings because I've dealt with this before. Seriously, it's etched into your memory for a long time. And if you guys don't know what the slang means, it's "Kill Your Self". - Kwaysar

5 Cringe

! CRINGE! Hey look, that girl is singing. CRINGE! CRINGE! #CRINGE! This word is so annoying

I remember when cringe was used correctly. Now it's used stupidly. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

It's meaningless and pretentious how frivolous people use it. It's trending on the Internet as more people use it more to asser their opinion. This needs to stop

I never used this word. - Userguy44

6 Autistic

Not only is this overused, but is morally wrong. It isn't their fault if someone is autistic. So don't use it as an insult. If you highly believe autism just makes someone look dumb, then that disgusts me, because I have high function autism myself, and I have an above average IQ. - SpectralOwl

Using autism as an insult is horrible. In fact using any disability as an insult is disgusting. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

Listen, folks. Autism is a real thing. It doesn't mean "stupid" or "cringeworthy". Rather, it is a mental condition/disorder that acts as what I call a "tilt". One side (for me, existential and linguistic intelligence) is better than average, at the cost of social skills. Now, don't get me wrong. It can be a curse far more often than a blessing. This includes when people use it to insult random things. It's offensive and outright cruel. - Cyri

My brother keeps on calling me that, he doesn't know what “autistic” really means. Not just him, also many people. I actually don't have autism. - Ghalia14

The Newcomers

? Ship

I recently noticed that this word is being used as a short form for "relationship." I grew up knowing that this word has to do with something that floats on the water - unless it is called "S.S. Minnow," "The Poseidon," or "The Titanic." - giddyjoker

The Contenders

11 Troll

Nowadays it seems like it's the only word people think they can use to describe any negativity whatsoever. Really, really stupid. I've been called a troll on YouTube for telling a user to stop arguing with another. Really, really, REALLY stupid. - naFrovivuS

This word died around the time that Rage Comics died. I hate the sudden influx of people using this word, thinking they're "trendy" and "cool" for using a word strictly used online. Any time I see the word "troll" on this website I cringe because it's old and dead and needs to stay that way. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

He's the one that won't let the goats cross the bridge. - giddyjoker

But trolls are amazing. - DarkBoi-X

12 Racist

This word is so overused and annoying - christangrant

No I'm not I'm just saying this word is overused I honestly don't care about what color someone is everyone is equal. Plus where am I being racist in that comment? you're an example of why this word is overused - christangrant

Especially when it’s used wrong. - blackflower

13 Cancer

Whatever happened to cancer being defined as a serious health disease that people are suffering from rather than a stupid term to describe anything people hate. This can actually be very disrespectful to people who are suffering from cancer and those who had to go through losing their love ones since they suffered from cancer. - HoldenFanatic

This is actually the worst, it should be 1 - venomouskillingmachine

Joint with autistic as an insult this is flat out awful - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

It is also the name of a horoscope sign. - giddyjoker

YOLO= Carpe diem (seize the day in Latin) for stupid people

Just used to justify being stupid - blackflower

15 Daddy

You know what, I am sick to death of seeing "daddy" being used in comment sections of YouTube videos and in tumblr posts/urls by younger people. It's disgusting. Thanks to this, a lot of people (including me) have been thrown off calling our dads 'daddy' since it will make us look like freaks. Oh and a message for them: FATHER'S DAY IS NOT FOR YOUR CREEPY OBSESSION. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

I can't speak with my dad because the new meaning of this word

16 Epic Fail!

I want to punch someone in the face when I hear this the fad just won't end and it's not even cool. - happyhappyjoyjoy

Say this all the time...

This fad is an epic fail! - Ashes

Hate it.. - Ananya

Annoying on the news. Annoying on the internet.

18 Your Mum!
19 Elitist

Aka a word that has no meaning because everyone can be considered one - christangrant

20 F***

Should be #1. Bad words annoy me so much. Why can't everyone be nice and use nice words?

Stfu dark boi

BAD WORD NEEDS TO BE 1 it is stupid! - ArcticWolf

21 Terrible
22 Duh

those annoying girls flirt with this word, it makes them very annoying

like when they said it "duh, you're ugly, duh, that's gross, duh, that's crazy, duh, I hate it

my most hated word ever - ronluna

Just no. Don't 'Duh' me it seriously makes me want to hint you as hard as I possibly can.

Girls always say this word I'm like 😠

23 Triggered

It's not even safe to feel angry about something any more without meme slang rolling in. - Entranced98

24 Swag

SWAG means secretly we are gay

What does it even mean? - blackflower

25 Homophobe
26 Poser
27 Bae

It actually means poop in Danish.

Bae is so useless there is already enough "love names" and you wouldn't want to call who you love poop

This should be number 1. Pronounce it right, or don't even make it a thing.

Never heard of this one before. Variant of the girl's name Bea or Bee, maybe? Hm... - giddyjoker

30 Dank

What does this even mean?

Short form of dunk tank? - giddyjoker

Good memes though. - DarkBoi-X

"What does this even mean? "
I think you must be talking about "Dank Memes" which are yet more unfunnier and not really dank version of memes. Honestly, I think wet is better word but, still dank is mostly used just for memes.

31 Bro

I don't think its annoying when they say it in a positive sentence, but in a negative sentence, and if they use it all the time, its annoying!

You should only use "bro" if you're African American. Nothing more pathetic than little white kids trying to be as cool as black people and throwing "bro" in every sentence. Ultimate cringer : "U mad, Bro? ". Awful.

I am not your bro. Especially if it's to say "F you, bro"

That guy that got tazed in Florida used this one. - giddyjoker

This... Is spelled "Hollar".

37 Savage

Savage nowadays just means annoying behavior that is somehow considered as awesome. It really isn't. Annoying is annoying no matter what it is. - NuMetalManiak

38 Liberal

This word used to refer to anything that was related to liberalism, but nowadays, it's virtually a useless buzzword along with "conservative". I highly do not recommend making a drinking game out of this word and its variants. Same thing goes with "conservative" and its variants. - WindWakerFan

I'm not even a liberal and dear god the word has pretty much lost all it's meaning. - Swellow

39 Yo

"yo"... Uhmm, yes... And?

Why are people on this site like I was born in the wrong generation because Yoko and swag annoys me?
