After reading the word BUTTHURT on a post here for the God who doesn't exist only knows time, I started to wonder how that word came to be the choice for so many who simply wanted a new way to call somebody a cry-baby. A little googling on the word's history led me to three different explanations for its origin. 1. It's a reference to a spanking. 2. It's homophobic. Like calling another Man a fag as a put down. 3. It's referencing anal rape of either gender. Nothing makes someone feel More submissive then being held down and banged in the rush, I guess. 4. Nobody really thinks of the meaning or history of the word when they write it. It's just synonymous with being a cry baby. So curious, when you use butthurt or read butthurt, do you think about it at all?
