Which word from 2012 would you ban?
Lake Superior State University in Michigan is compiling a list of words and phrases that became popular in 2012 that it would like to see kicked to the curb. Among those chosen are “spoiler alert,” “bucket list,” “fiscal cliff,” and “trending.” YOLO, or “you only live once,” tops the list of the most annoying terms of the year.
Which word or phrase would you like to see banned?

When people say I’m gonna rape you and stuff I find that offensive.. My brother just started using the word rape as slang and I don’t find it funny.. . I’d ban that one for sure.

Ratchet? Isn’t that a tool that has been around for a hundred years or more?

It’s not removing a freedom of speech. It’s an oppinion of what word you’re not a fan of that you think should disappear! Nothing more than that..

i dont rlly care about banning words because everyone has the right to say what they please… but i will speak on a few things
NIGGA will not be banned until racism is dead
RATCHET that word will die when they leave which means never so sorry
YOLO thats easy when drake dies so will it
****** does not mean what people use it as… to keep it 100 its a bundle of sticks… that is all for now
