Can't tell THOT and thought apart? Let Petro Magno, writer and self-confessed language nerd, school you on today's slang words that every #imapreviewgirl should know, as featured in the urban dictionary article 'Thot Catalog' from this month's Preview Pulse. Because, girl, you don't want to be called a side piece or a basic bae by any fuckboy. (Yeah, you'll get what we mean if you read on.)
It's the most basic term of endearments to be used for your number one. Bae is simply a shortened "babe," and not an abbreviation of "before anyone else." Sorry to burst your bubble.
Whoever you're f-ing around with that isn't your main bae. If you have a side piece, you must be naughty by nature.
Thirsty Hoes Out There.
The new "hypebeast," like that loser in your squad who drops mad stacks on designer brands just to cover up his sad cluelessness.
The new "tho," which basically means "though." It's pretty much the same, but it needs to be built into a proper conversation. Here's how to use it: if homeboy thinks your side piece is toothy, you defend her by saying, "Dat sparkling personality doe."
AF, TF, FOH:
Polite variations on common clauses that contain the F-word, e.g., as F-, the f-, f- outta here.
How you feel when listening to a track that is straight-up fire.
The new "legitimate." Or, yeah, "legit."
If you don't know what this means, then you must be one. (Take this quiz to find out!)
