which would come to mean obsession with trans people. In our dynamic language, words come to mean different things over a short span of time. I remember discussion on DU within the past couple of weeks about the verb ‘drop’, which I can’t recall being used a scant 10 years ago in the sense of an artist releasing new music or an online influencer uploading a podcast. In actuality, I believe the entire MAGAt movement - and I use that word in the most scatological way possible - will, in the long run, contribute nothing new to our lexicon.
