Thread: words you hate?

    (are 'sorcerers' considered superior to 'sorceresses'?)
    There's no moral virtue or empowerment inherent to the word "sorceror", so creating a hierarchy there wouldn't matter anyway.

    Sorcerers aren't inherently powerful? Gee what a waste of magic.

    hah! I have, but only ironically.
    "When a child is abused, he or she will often internalise that abuse as deserved. It is a cruel reality that a child needs the parent so much, is evolutionarily programmed to trust them so implicitly, that when a parent is abusive the child will take the blame rather than completely upend their world and blame the person they depend on for survival." -velo

    Point taken.

    The word I was referring to was..."s-u-p-e-r". Only saying the letters, not the word. Honestly, I hear that word everywhere, everyday. It drives me insane.

    "The greatness of evil lies in its awful accuracy.
    Without that deadly talent for being in the right place at the right time, evil must suffer defeat.
    For unlike its opposite, good, evil is allowed no human failings, no miscalculations.
    Evil must be perfect, or depend upon the imperfections of others."

    Overuse does not make me hate a word, but it does devalue it Watched a bit of 'Britain's got talent, the champions' and the word 'Awesome' got used so much that when someone came on whose abilities actually inspired awe there was nothing left to say but 'I am lost for words'. They weren't of course, but they were empty words.

    Those shows are like an exhibition of superlatives and bad hyperbole.

    "Passion" drives me nuts. It's everywhere, all the time, people going into job interviews at Burger King and talking about their 'passion' and you aren't allowed to question it without being made to look the asshole.

    'Emotional', another one, when used to refer to one's state of being - 'it made me feel emotional'. Is there even a way you can feel something without it being an emotion? So how can you feel emotional? That's like saying 'it makes me feel feeling'. What emotion specifically is it? 'Emotional' is not a state, just say it makes you feel unstable. When people say they 'feel emotional' they are employing lazy language so they don't have to be specific about what they are feeling. I also dislike that it's generally painted as being undesirable, like human beings are robots and their emotions are their failings as opposed to their strengths.

    Last but not least, my least favorite slice of bollocks is when people speak of 'feeling alive' - "I just felt so alive when I was with her." What in the name of pretentious arseholery is that supposed to mean? Nothing, it means nothing, it's filler.

    But do you feel passionately emotional, or emotionally passionate? They are very different things, as the Mad Hatter might think and then say.
