Could you explain why they infuriate you or why you feel that they are thrown around easily?

I don't think any words really bother me, it always needs context.

For all intents and purposes...just what the heck are "intensive purposes"? No, really, does anybody know?

Which begs the question--NO, IT DOES NOT!! It "raises" the question!

'Google' as in the verb "to Google" something or someone. I'd say it's thrown around so easily, because they are so ubiquitous, commonly used. My Microsoft phone and notebook do "Bing" searches.

I feel weeaboo is thrown around too easily. Too many people use it as a derogatory way of addressing people who just like anime which really doesn't match the actual definition. It's like calling someone who picks flowers a murderer.

Weaboo. I seriously scorn anyone that uses that term as a serious insult. It seems to have evolved from its previous colloquial meaning into a derogatory word for anyone that likes anime. I hate that word.

Sexist

Racist

Misogyny

Islamaphobe

Weaboo.

Done, That's about all. These are all thrown around seriously way too much these days.........

EDIT
I saw the comment above, and I totally agree. Also I hate many of the other terms used to generalise and mistreat anime fans.

EDIT 2
I also noticed that another comment above hates the term hoverboards being used.

Yeah, weaboo is a terrible one. It's like "you've watched an anime before or don't think Japan is stupid? F'ing weaboo!" And then there's people out there who try to claim it's not an insult. It's just.. ugh.

I also really don't like how the word "hate" is used these days. Just because you don't like something or don't find something appealing doesn't mean you hate it. To me using "hate" to express even casual levels of dislike not only lessens the impact of the word itself but also shows a fairly poor level of vocabulary.

Use of the term Social Justice Warrior infuriates me.
