Define Asshole…Posted: February 7, 2017
No, dievca’s not talking about anal sex.
She’s been dealing with a Gentleman who she defines as an
an irritating or contemptible person.
And she wants to make sure that she got the verbiage right.
Moral philosopher Aaron James, in his 2012 book, Assholes: A Theory, gives a more precise meaning of the word, particularly to its connotation in the United States:
A person, who is almost always male, who considers himself of much greater moral or social importance than everyone else; who allows himself to enjoy special advantages and does so systematically; who does this out of an entrenched sense of entitlement; and who is immunized by his sense of entitlement against the complaints of other people. He feels he is not to be questioned, and he is the one who is chiefly wronged.
Yes, dievca did get her choice of verbiage correct.
Thank you for letting her work it out.
