Have you ever noticed how certain words become a trend?
I started noticing when a person I know announced on Facebook that they were pansexual.
I thought my vocabulary was fairly extensive, but I have to admit, I don’t recall hearing that word before, so I looked it up.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary pansexual means “of, relating to, or characterized by sexual desire or attraction that is not limited to people of a particular gender identity or sexual orientation.” Meaning a pansexual person is attracted to all kinds of people-males, females, transgender, and those who identify as non-binary (neither- male or female).
Words, ar like other things. As one person told me, “you never see a yellow car on the road until you buy one, then you see them everywhere.” Did the color yellow become trendy as a vehicle color, or did the person just never noticed the color before?
Here is a list of words that I have noticed in the past few months that I hadn’t noticed for a very long time.
