So, here goes my two cents..
Sweetie – who are you talking to a child
Turned up- I can’t even say enough about this one
Obsessed- not really
Thot- we are all garden tools of some kind
Boyfriend- we want and need real men
Girlfriend- same difference- women rule the world
Gold digger- who wants a financially unstable mate? Who? That’s what I thought
Boo- The ghost have been busted, long ago
“I woke up like this” – I must admit I like it. So, forgive me a bit if you hear me say it
(Anything).com- need I say more
Winning- if you are there’s no need to say it yourself. Let others celebrate you
Ratchet- if these girls are, lets teach them to be dignified, respected and praise worthy. By any means necessary
Baller- guys stop calling other guys this
Pimp – aren’t we all in some way or another. It is one of the oldest occupations
Queen- mean it when you say it and don’t call us BITCHES behind our backs when we don’t give you the (you know what)
Gurrla – just f*#*ing sounds like “guerrilla”… I don’t know about you but, I don’t want to be referred to as such.
Dog – DMX is a classic.. Let him be
Homey- I don’t want to take you home and I don’t want to go home with you
Not a sermon just a thought of mine!
We can surely find alternative words to replace these colloquialisms.
Challenge yourself, your children and your friends to learn at least one new word a day or week to broaden their vocabulary.
Words are powerful tools which can help us empower ourselves.
