It does NOT mean 'Secretly we are gay'. Morons.
Origins:While many common terms have entered the English language as acronyms. only rarely did that phenomenon occur prior to the mid-twentieth century. Yet that fact stops few from reaching for acronymic explanations for a variety of far older words, especially in instances where the true etymologies aren't crystal clear.
Swag is one such misunderstood word. Some of the acronymic explanations for it that we've encountered are:
- Secretly We Are Gay
- Stuff We All Get
- Stuff We Ain't Got
- Scientific Wild Arsed Guess
- Sold Without A Guarantee
Not surprisingly, none of those explanations is correct. The word 'swag' is not an acronym, nor has it anything to do with homosexual men surreptitiously attracting like-minded souls to partake of a group activity. It is instead a corruption of the Scandinavian "svagga", meaning "to rock unsteadily or lurch" and entered the English language in the 13th or 14th century, with its earliest print sighting dating to 1303. Over time its meaning evolved into that of "hanging loosely or heavily, to sag," and by 1794 picked up the additional meanings of "booty or plunder" and "a hanging wreath or garland."
In current common usage, swag has a number of meanings:
- Illegally obtained goods.
- Free stuff
- A decorative garland hung in such a way that loops of it hang freely.
Man: Look at that dude's clothes, he has Swag.
Man: Let's see what swag you have from robbing that house.
The most used word in the whole fucking universe. Douche bags use it, your kids use it, your mail man uses it, and your fucking dog uses it. If you got swag, you generally wear those shitty hats side way, and your ass hanging out like a fucking goof cause your pants are half way down your white ass legs. To break down the word, it means (Secretly We Are Gay). It is also a word that means to represent yourself/ the way you represent yourself, baggy clothes, shitty hats, small penis and basically a way to say your afraid to come out of the closet.

Orginally from the Scottish
slang word "swagger
" which was a description of the way some Scots walk (in a swaying motion), the word was then misinterpreted by the English
as "the way someone presents themselves". Eg, whether someone looks cool
The word quickly made its way to the states and has ever since become the catchphrase of douchbags and tools everywhere.
