Glad you're still with us, mate.
Being told that I'm "hypermasculine" because I carry a knife and a gun. In fact, a really irritating trend is all the new words that folks have created to support what they want and deride someone who thinks different.
I'll give you a word usage issue and new phrase that has ALWAYS irritated me. New word? So(as used as the first word in answering someone's question), and "Going forward"(I mean......in life we ALWAYS go forward in our actions. Does life go backwards????).
Ain't nothing wrong with being a man !
I Live Here Scott..For War Veterans....
Och Aye the Noo..
No, i heard some dipsh*t academic calling it Toxic Masculinity, the other day. She looked and talked like a dead fish.
Good for you. I just read up on the place. IT looks like a great place for veterans.
Did you really just break Google translate?! Gee, thanks.

Actually, I'm convinced that one day it will be a crime to be a heterosexual male. When that woman called me hypermasculine, it was not a compliment. They see any man that believes in the standards of manhood to be a misogynistic dinosaur.
Ah ha! Thanks.
Yeah, "so" has become the new "umm."
"At the end of the day" is pretty annoying too.
That is why I am so happy I am married.
The use of the phrase: "You know what I mean", after every sentence. I watched an interview with Houston Texans football player, DeAndre Hopkins, and it seemed he couldn't say one sentence without adding that phrase. He sounded like he had no education at all. Very sad that Clemsen University would allow him to go 3-4 years, as a Communications Major, and that was all he could say.
I think "so" has also replaced "well". Not for me! Yes, there are so many more sophisticated options for "at the end of the day":
In the end
In the last analysis
In the final analysis.
Can we imagine the words of that lovely Beatles song being:
And, at the end of the day
The love you take
Is equal to the love
The Beatles knew the right words.(they used And....in the end)
There's a lady at my gym who uses that pretty routinely. I like to call her the "Jack Nicholson clone"(course she's a lady, and he isn't .
Yes, actually it was a compliment, even if she didn't realize it at the time. "Thank you, that was very kind of you to say that" is the correct response.
Separate names with a comma.
