Hybrid Neologism of the Week

Gentsult [jent • suhlt] 

1. a truly sincere, mild and almost amiable yet slightly insolent or contemptuous rude action or remark.
2. a guileless pseudo-compassionate and nearly encouraging affront.

1. to treat or speak to with the warmest and most bewildering degradation. 

e.g. "You're one of my favorite people. I love that I feel such a kinship between us. It makes me feel so connected to you. Like, I used to also really struggle with compulsive overeating and be terribly painfully awkward in social situations. No I mean like, you're my favorite."


Your comments are why I get out of bed in the morning. Just kidding. But I do like them.
