Funny article on certain non-dirty words that apparently make a lot of women cringe.
One of the big offenders: the word "moist". There’s even a Facebook group with over 70 members dedicated to "I Hate The Word M***t".
And they’re not kidding. Some comments:
IF YOU EVEN UTTER "THE M WORD" NEAR ME, I’LL CASTRATE YOU!
My friends and family taunt me with this word constantly. I hate the way it sounds so nasal at the beginning of the word and that it sounds exactly like the meaning. Like its onomatopoeic or something. Urgh.
I’m glad I’ve finally found a place I can feel I belong!
I hate it went the word m***t is used in cookery programmes to describe the food. Its not appropriate!!!
M***t haters of the world unite! I despise the sick, repugnant word! It?s almost as bad as vaginal! Uurrrrhh – Gotta go chuck now!
AHHH i can’t believe there’s a group for this! amazing!! I have wanted to barf on anyone who has said m***t for my whole lifeee gah EWWwweewww
