    I hear that word all the time and I just don't know what it is. All the white people say it, and none of the black people do.

    I went to a predom-white school, and then when I went to my hood and said it around my family they looked at me like wth...

    I don;t even know what a douche is,
    but what is a douchebag...I just am so curious lol...

    I know it has something to do with women or something (the douche.)

    But why is it an insult.icon_biggrin.gif
    I know I sound so weird but I gotta know.

    And do you ever use the term?

    Literal: douche bag is in blueEnema_Bag_and_Douche_kit.jpg_250x250.jpg

    Figurative: A guy who gives you that undescribable feeling of dislike because of some unrespectable and unlikable thing he does. Everyone gets put-off by his behaviour but he is unaware or willfully ignorant.

    You fill the douche bag with water or a cleaning solution, and attach the tube to it, and spray the contents into a vagina or asshole to clean it out.

    Did they not invent the internet for questions like this? icon_rolleyes.gif

    douche [doosh] verb, douched, douch·ing.
    noun
    1. a jet or current of water, sometimes with a dissolved medicating or cleansing agent, applied to a body part, organ, or cavity for medicinal or hygienic purposes.
    2. the application of such a jet.
    3. an instrument, as a syringe, for administering it.
    4. a bath administered by such a jet.

    verb (used with object)
    6. to apply a douche to.

    verb (used without object)
    7. to use a douche or douches; undergo douching.

    Origin:
    1675–85; < French < Italian doccia water pipe, back formation from doccione drainpipe (where -one was taken as augmentative suffix) < Latin ductiōn- (stem of ductiō ) drawing off, conveying (water), equivalent to duct ( us ), past participle of dūcere (see ductile) + -iōn- -ion

    The "douche bag" appears in red:

    It's used to shoot water or a cleaning solution to fulfill the first definition above.

    Colloquially, it's just a general insult, like "ass hole," "loser," or any number of things you could think to call someone.

    Douche bag is often used to describe a male with a big ego and little or no morals. Often times shallow and brash.

    I don't know if there's a black equivalent of the term.

    Besides a lack of tact and emotional intelligence, the other hallmark of douchebaggery is a total lack of self-awareness.

    The term "douchebag" generally refers to a male with a certain combination of obnoxious characteristics related to attitude, social ineptitude, public behavior, or outward presentation.

    Though the common douchebag thinks he is accepted by the people around him, most of his peers dislike him. He has an inflated sense of self-worth, compounded by a lack of social grace and self-awareness. He behaves inappropriately in public, yet is completely ignorant to how pathetic he appears to others.

    He often talks about how cool, successful, and popular he is, yet never catches on to the fact that he comes across as a total loser. Nevertheless, he firmly believes that he is the smartest, most desirable, and most charming person in the room... and will try to bad-rep anyone who would threaten to expose this facade.

    He fancies himself a ladies’ man, yet tends to be a joke to all but the most naive of women. He tries to portray himself as part of the in-crowd (a fashionista, an upwardly mobile professional, the life of the party, etc.) but only succeeds in his own mind.

    To everyone else, he is an annoying and arrogant phony who comes across as a wannabe overcompensating for his insecurities. He tries to appear like the center of whatever group will tolerate him, but in reality, he is just a tag-along who mooches drinks, women, contacts, social standing, and other benefits from the group... while contributing nothing.

    A-list ego; D-list status.

    I always saw the slang thing, but I wasn't sure..but how is that an insult.

    It's no different from calling someone an Enema.

    How is that...i just don't...nevermind lol.

    Is that force that reaffirms your stance on something, but does it by being against what you believe.
