    Default Butt Hurt ~ the childish bust that gamers love.

    There's a lot that could be said about this slur or internet slight or dis or however it's used. The homophobia, the indirect gay bashing, the fantasies of anal rape, hemorrhoids, idk what the origin is. Whenever I see it my impression of the person writing it distinctly bottoms out.

    What comes to mind for me is a dear sweet woman who meant a lot to me and many people in my community, a strong woman who fought for her last breath, a fight that lasted years. Of the last times I saw her I can't forget the staggering walk she took from her front door to the car to see yet another specialist. seeemingly every step took more effort than most of us exert in a day. The "doughnut" ring she carried with her, with which she sat upon to help ease the severity of pain.
    There was no beating the cancer. Macrobiotic diets. Removal of tissue, cutting her apart month after month.

    I've lost a couple more friends to colon cancer since then. I'm sure some of you will know or have known loved ones who's lives ended very much butt hurt.

    As for your homophobic, ass rape,hemorrhoid internet dude bust; please consider a more thoughtful means of expressing your dismissal of other people's opinions.

    I never interpreted this phrase to even vaguely relate to any of that. I've never seen it used to imply homophobia or anything that would be offensive to someone suffering from an ailment. And as someone who had to have a complete colectomy and continues to suffer from complications of living life without a vital part of my digestive tract I think I understand what it means to be truly "butt hurt" in that sense. I think you're being overly sensitive about a silly phrase that kids thought sounded funny so it memetically spread.

    But it is indeed a childish phrase people use to dismiss criticism. The problem is not that the phrase is offensive, it's that the phrase is stupid and intended to lazily insult someone's opinions instead of responding with a real argument.

    After the last few weeks of posts here, I found myself about to address this stupid phrase today as well.

    Every time I've seen the phrase, it's been used to slam someone who was bitching about something for a ridiculous reason. Such as, "He's just butt hurt that he can't get what he wants without paying for it," or "Stop acting so butt hurt over someone not agreeing with you. It's called an opinion," and whatnot. I've never seen it used to imply rape aftermaths, cancer, hemorrhoids, sitting pillows, or anything like that.

    Sorry, I was mocking the fool that started calling everyone butt hurt.
    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    I'm not suggesting that it is directly meant to imply those connotations.
    But we must wonder what the origin of the phrase was, and why it has an affinity with children and internet trolls. I believe it goes back to junvenile fascination and ridicule of unpleasant anal experiences. It has certainly taken on another life within gamer arguments, but the underlying background is still there.
    The first times I heard it, it definitely carried the wink wink nudge nudge connotation of "you got fucked up the ass, you homo."

    Out of respect to the OP, I will only use "butt devastated" from now on.

    But I'm not going to stop using a silly frase just because some people somewhere might be offended by it.

    If and when I use that frase talking to someone suffering from such a condition, I'll obviously apologize since my intention was not to joke about it.

    Will you tell me to stop using "break a leg" next because some people have suffered horrible accidents?

    The first people I heard who said it used it in such a way as to suggest you'd been fucked up the ass in a gay way.

    Just to be clear..........are you saying there's a non-gay way to have that happen?
