I may be sticking with a limited vocabulary this year.
I can’t subscribe to the “so bad it’s good” school of slang.
As in, “He was great. He killed!”
Or, “Awesome art. Totally sick!”
Let’s not even delve into the “War on Drugs” slogan.
I believe some writers hope for fame by desensitizing readers. These wordsmiths wish that shocking words might be more shocking in a positive context.
I’ll pass. These words have real, original meanings. Pain-filled meanings. By jumping on the “opposites attract” bandwagon, trendy phrases disrespect what the recipients of these words experienced.
Most of all, I would compare slang to a carton of milk. Both need “best if used by…” dates.
