The Shuster pejora-bomb? Adjetoxic language.
I want a new word.
I want the word adjetoxic to be used when somebody makes a reasoned comment but goofs by using a hugely negative descriptive noun verb or adjective in their statement.
I.e., the golf announcer Kelly Tilghman used the word lynch in reference to Tiger Woods when 'beat the crap out of' would have not caused, well, such an adjetoxic uproar. (adjective plus toxic)
David Shuster adjetoxically used 'pimp' when two-faced hypocritical Machiavellian manipulation (of sweet Chelsea) would have been acceptable.
