To enchildify someone is when Person A meets Person B and is made insecure by them for some reason, so from now on Person A addresses Person B in an age-inappropriately belittling or condescending manner, as though Person B is a child: e.g.,
1) Speaking to Person B in a high-pitched, soft, sickly-sweet voice when both individuals are adults
2) Pausing and smiling ingratiatingly sidelong at Person B after every few sentences, the way you do to a toddler; an "aww, isn't Person B cuuuute" kind of thing
3) Always asking Person B how their finances are doing, how their relationships or job are doing, which carries the faint, deliberate implication Person B must be doing badly all the time
4) Always offering (within earshot of others) to aid Person B financially or with advice, when Person B has never asked for such help
5) Saying "OHHHH! Isn't that NICE!" or "Isn't that SWEET!" after Person B mentions something good that has happened for them recently
"Enchildifying in action" is almost invisible to men, but a high warfare art among women. Women sometimes enchildify other women if the second group of women have not had babies yet or choose to be single. This is most marked in African-American, Jewish and Mediterranean cultures. The reason men do not enchildify each other is because a man would beat another man severely if he tried it. It is a way of marking territory, a way of Person A declaring themselves bigger and badder than Person B, and of making Person ...
Strongly anti-Semitic term, although sometimes used intraracially by some Jews, to described disliked Jews within our own community. If you are Jewish, please don't use the term.
"Gazaga" is usually used to describe someone crass, vulgar and materialistic who has poor manners and little taste, and seems to exist to attract antisemitism and embarrass the Jewish community. Male "gazagas" are often small in height, hairy (esp. chest and back), sexually lewd, and socially belligerent (e.g., snipped, rude, curt tone on the phone, pushy in bus and other lines, aggressive in traffic, and often overtly racist and sexist).
Many work in the entertainment industry. Steve Lawrence in "The Blues Brothers" was cinematic depiction of a gazaga. The rude nature of the movie business is due to its being overrun not by compassionate, normal Jews, but our vicious black sheep cousin the gazaga.
Female "gazagas" are thought to be unattractive, mannish, aggressive, and undesirable. Like their male counterparts, they are pushy, crude, and mannerless, but carry additional dislikable behaviors such as a whiny Bronx-or-New Jersey accented voice, a frequently pinched, wrinkled-nosed expression (as if smelling something bad), loud speech and laughter in public, and manipulative, vengeful attitudes.
Most Jewish men unfairly and unaccurately stereotype all Jewish women as gazagas in order to feel better about dating and marrying Gentile women.
Both genders of gazagas are often seen i...
Swapping 20's is trading child and adulthood horror stories with someone new encountered in public life as a way of bonding with them and creating the first strains of friendship with them. Derived from "What's your 20", CB lingo for "your location" or "where you're at."
In "female rules", if she wants to be seen as "a nice person", and therefore easy to manipulate later on, the recipient is supposed to reciprocate with similar personal revelations. Often involves confessing scandalously damaging personal information, liberally sprinkled with Dr. Phil-style psychobabble.
1) New female doctor you encountered in grocery store wants to be friends with you, so she confesses to you she sleeps with all her younger male patients, then asks you for your advice when she confesses one of them may be gay and might have given her a disease. Four days after you meet her.
2) New female stranger you ran into at a rock club wants to be friends with you, so her first-ever phone call to you is about how her father molested her as a child. The night of the day you meet her.
3) Distant female acquaintance you've seen once or twice at school wants to step up the next level to friendship, so one night out of the blue you get a phone call from her, find out she got your number from someone who shouldn't have given it, and she wants to talk with you at length about her extensive liposuction surgeries and suicidal feelings. Suddenly. Over wine. R...
