It's not uncommon for guys to give ladies nicknames. And while some of these are supposed to be pleasant when dating someone, like "honey" or "love", others carry a negative connotation that come across as straight-up sexist.
In a new study performed as part of Special K’s new ‘Strength Is…’ campaign, 2,000 British were asked to identify the nicknames they most hate hearing come from a man's mouth, with these being the top-5.
- 1. Bird – 56%
- 2. Doll – 45%
- 3. Chick – 42%
- 4. Babe – 38%
- 5. Queen Bee – 33%
Other sexiest terms that were towards the top of the list of words to either ban or go unused were things like "drama queen" and "diva", which, if you're a guy dumb enough to say to a woman, deserve any and all consequences.
You can see the entire results from the study over at The Mirror, which will, hopefully, help men grow up a little bit and refrain from using such derogatory monikers towards women.
