I actually didn't hate the word problematic until I heard about a billion Canadians start using the word unironically and 15 times per discussion. When I would hear it now and then, it suited what it was used for.
The NBN is problematic. Canadian Universities arguing over pronouns is not.

Throw in fake news. ******* horrid term, usually used wrong.

"Cancel culture" can fu** off and die as well.

Wasn't YOLO around 2010 or 2011 as well? Its basically dead but lets put more dirt on that grave to be sure.

Might as well through in triggered, NPC and snowflake too.

At least YOLO, whilst unbelievably lame and cringeworthy, was actually positive in outlook. Unlike all the current isms which all seem so angry and negative.

Makes one long for the whimsy of totes amazeballs.

I haven’t heard it in a while, but a couple of old high school friends used to say “lol” and “rofl” in person. Used to shit me
I can honestly say the word amazeballs has never crossed my lips, ever- have just done it in written form, ie here.

Ppl who SAY lol should be punched in the face.
