The Top 5 Words This Victory Girl Would Like to Ban in 2016

Lake Superior University published a list of words it would like to see go the way of 2015, so I thought it might be fun to put my own personal, conservative spin on such a list. So let’s give it a go!

  • Micro-aggression: Used to describe any transgression of speech against one who may, or may not depending on your perspective, be the focus or receiver of speech that may, or may not, be considered derogatory. As in “The white men on campus are always displaying micro-aggression against underprivileged minority women on campus.”

  • Manspreading: On this one the University and I agree. This term is used to describe the way a stereotypical male might choose to sit-with his legs spread open. Evidently feminists think it takes up too much room on public transit, which might actually move it into the column of “Micro-aggression.” I frankly think the term is inane.

  • Slut-Shaming: I frankly think that it is totally ok to shame people who act in slutty manner. After all, isn’t this one of the things the original feminist movement sought to overcome? Somehow over the past twenty years women who dress like $5 whores have moved into commanding respect-or did I just get old? If you want to be treated like a lady-as a dear friend of mine has always said-then comport yourself as one. If that means leaving a little something to the imagination-then so be it. It worked for Bettie Page and Ava Gardner.
    Bettie Page is an iconic pin-up to this day. No sluts here!

  • Cis-Gender: I think the folks at Urban Dictionary put it best: “Used to by transgender to describe all the disgusting people in this world who don’t hate their genitalia.” Boom.
  • Gender Neutral Pronouns: Seriously people. Humanity has survived for millennia without the “need” for Gender Neutral Pronouns like “xer, ze and zie.” Do we really think that we are SUCH special snowflakes in the modern age that we need to destroy thousands of years of language in the name of “equality??” If it was good enough for Shakespeare, it’s good enough for me.

These are my personal top 5 “most hated words” that I would like to see removed for general over-use or simply the ridiculousness of their existence in the first place. Perhaps while we are at it we can ban trigger warnings and special snowflakes in general.

    We already have gender-neutral singular pronouns! In the English language, properly understood, the masculine subsumes the feminine, and in those cases where the sex of the person to whom the pronoun refers, the masculine pronouns are used, and do not imply — except to those of little education — that the referred person is male.

    As for “cis-gender,” it simply means normal. Those who are not “cis-gender” are abnormal.

  • Jennifer says:

    Dana, great points! How about just calling “normal” people normal? I am SICK of the labels.

  • Cyndi says:

    Great list but I am disappointed that you didn’t include “man buns” and “affluenza” These words should have never been uttered out loud by anyone.

  • Rebecca says:

    I could really live without “RINO”. Republican is a party, not a narrow ideology.

  • Jennifer says:

    Rebecca
    I share your frustration with the RINO thing and no, we shouldn’t be a narrow ideology. Bring on that Big Tent!
