I'm going to date myself with these 2 that I heard a lot in the late '60's:

"Groovy"

"That's my bag"

 ;D

"*******" yes, I still hear it used, unfortunately.  Not often, but once a year is still too often.

Apparently the filter agrees with you.  ;D

What's "selfies"?

My pregnancy related term that I hate: "baby bump".

NOTHING gets my dander up like "baby bump" "preggers" and "preggo".  Where I come from, Prego is pasta sauce.
"After all this time?"
"Always."

Great but now we still don't know what you meant and you're making me very curious.
Any hints? Some context?

I love it when the filter does that, because it filters "republ ican," "dem ocrat," and "les bian" all the same way.  Which means there's usually a humorous fill-in-the-blank possible when a poster says something that's bleeped  :P  There are very few posts where "republ ican" and "les bian" would be interchangeable . . .

It begins with R and ends with "tard"

Ohh! I hate that too. There are few words I find offensive, but this is one.
And the same goes for "gay" used as a derogative word like Slartibartfast mentioned.

Boy, am I old.  About ninety percent of the expressions posted in this thread are complete mysteries to me; never heard them, and don't really want to do so.

My hot button?  "Hating on".  "Hate" is a verb.  One doesn't "love on", "like on", "want on" or any such thing, so why this prevalence of "hate on"?  To me, it just smacks of a complete lack of creativity.  Surely there are so many more ways to convey this point!

End of sermon.

"Healthy" and "choice/s" and/or any combination thereof, including "un-."

Also, not so much trendy as wornrighttheheckOUT:

pristine
plight

... OK, yes, I've been working the enviro beat too long.

"Haters gotta hate"...usually used by someone who is about to do something really ill advised and being dismissive to those telling him/her its a really bad idea.

Jumping in with two three more trendy expressions I hate...

  • Cray-Cray
  • Tuna-fish (either it's a tautology or in some countries, people are so regularly given tuners instead of tunas that they need to specify when ordering sandwiches!)
  • Vajayjay- aside from the fact that the vagina is just a body part and people should never be ashamed of the wonderful body, calling the vagina/vulva by such an infantile, cutesy wootesy name just reinforces the misogynistic beliefs that women are nothing but "cutesy wootesy, infantile creatures". Especially since the female reproductive system, and female sexuality, are such strong symbols and icons of femaleness and womanhood.   >:(

"bro"
"adorkable"
Hashtags, especially where they don't belong (Facebook, for instance.)






And I second "haters gonna hate" and "so gay." (I love this chart ;) )
