The six most hated words by women
Every individual has their own private dictionary of most hated words and it varies according to person, gender, culture, and nationality. But, when underwear company Knix Wear compiled a list of the six words women find it most uncomfortable to hear, the survey team struck by a stunning similarity of the choice of the words by various female participants from different cultures and backgrounds.
Knix teamed up with University of Pennsylvania linguist Mark Liberman and surveyed over 500 women to identify the most commonly hated words. “Moist” caught the first place with a whopping 77 percent of respondents voted against it. They were uncomfortable with “moist,” because of a seemingly inexplicable reflex and not because of any taboo connotations or overuse of the word.
“Squirt” came in the second position in most hated words list. Thus entry remained mysterious for its sexual connotations and implications. But, women tend to throw up the moment they hear or thing about this mysterious word.
Third, but the most interesting entry in the list is “panties”. “Panties” bothers 54 percent of women who took part in the survey. A reasonable explanation for this hatred for panties is that it’s a childish thing originated from the feeling that it is something that comes in contact with your genitals.
“Chunky” caught the fourth place. Most of the participants revealed that “chunky” make them think of vomit. The reasons keep its mysterious origin somewhere deep inside the female psyche.
“Curd” is in the fifth place with almost a quarter of respondents are uncomfortable with that. The word made the women think of “odor,” “cartilage,” and a range of other unpleasant subjects.
“Flap” is the sixth and the last entry in the most hated words listed. This may be the most psychological entrant in the list and has some historical reasons to make women uncomfortable.
The women have a lot of feelings about a lot of words. The survey tallied more than 40 shudder-inducing terms, which Knix then narrowed down using a series of interviews and focus groups.
Our visceral reactions to the likes of “moist” are the result of something called word aversion, a feeling of intense, irrational distaste for the sound or sight of a particular word or phrase. This is a gender specific phenomenon and has cross connections with the respective cultures.
