Yes, Neggers. This is spelled correctly. Not to be mistaken with the other, very racist 7 letter word whose spelling is very similar.
I think we’ve all had this happen to us. You’re out somewhere having a good time, and a guy starts talking to you. Out of nowhere, he throws out a “neg” – a subtle diss letting you know that even though he has been standing there for 20 minutes, he’s just NOT that into you.
The idea behind negging is to make women feel like they are not special – kind of like a subtle way of putting you in your place. The idea behind negging is to catch the woman off-guard and make them more open to a man’s advances. Personally, I think this is just more proof that men are insecure about the way women make them feel, and need to feel like they can control us.
A couple examples of negs:
“Hey… you look like that cartoon character… yeah that’s right, Rainbow Brite remember her?”
“I like your eyes. Hey… are you wearing colored contacts??? (before she can answer) Oh my god, no way, you are…”
I firmly believe that you shouldn’t dish it out if you can’t take it. Therefore, ladies, the next time you think a guy is negging you – give it back to him. I’ve created a list below for your future use.
“You know, you’d look a lot more like Chris Helmsworth/Brad Pitt/ (any hot actor’s name here) if you hit the gym more often.”
“You studied WHAT in college? Oh…..I see……”
“Has anyone ever told you that you look like a shorter version of Tom Cruise?”
I guess this is a good start. I am sure you’re all smart enough to come up with your own witticisms to deflect the naughty neggers who want to put you in your place.
