Did Gawker Just Re-Coin An I-A-Bism? Yes! [Pic+]

Submitted by: laura1991 5 years ago in

Gawker just ran a poll to find a new word for "Bro." Looks like Fancy"s word for douchebags is finally taking off.

This is the exact OPPOSITE of what IAB`s been trying to shove down our throats with this stupid "Chad" thing.

That`s not how this works. You can`t just declare a new word and have everyone automatically start using it.

It has to integrate itself over time.

I know someone irl named Chad who is really similar to IAB`s Chad stereotype. :P

Oh look, IAB thinks it`s more socially relevant than it actually is.

Wasn`t Chad already associated with Bro? I`m pretty sure most bro`s I know are named Chad.....

I`ve always thought of "Chad" as being some guy I was aquainted with, felt kinda sorry for but would NEVER want as an actual friend.

"Chads before ho`s" doesn`t have the same ring.

I thought a "Chad" was the creepy, loser guy who lives with his mom and has acne. A socially awkward guy who could be a serial rapist or killer.

But the way IAB was using chad, was to describe a wormy ,socially awkward looser... not an over-muscled orange version of the hulk (typical Bros).
I dunno...

Chad has been used for a typical white person name by comedians for like a decade now, this really isn`t that new

I thought Chad was the name for a guy in a picture whose name is unknown.

Hmm, I never thought of Chad as being a `Bro` or a `douchebag`... more like a loner. Maybe a `Dilbert` sort of thing.
