"To suck" or "you suck" is derived from, or is a shortened form of "to suck dick" or "you suck dick." In effect, it is the equivalent of saying "that's gay" or "you're gay." (You suck dick, so therefore, you must be gay.) This, in turn, comes from the assumption that homosexuality is "wrong" or "bad." Therefore, if something "sucks" it is "bad."
Isn't it strange how widely accepted the term is? Everytime you hear someone say "that sucks" on TV, they are essentially saying "that sucks dick."
Lil' Timmy: Dave, you suck at hopescotch.
Dave: Frig off, Timmy - you are so gay.
Not good. Bad.
The early Jazz musicians would say that a guy could really "Blow" if he had a good sound when playing the horn. If he couldn't play very well then they would say that he was "Sucking" on that horn. That's where the term "Suck" as being something bad came from.
He plays that horn so poorly that he must be sucking on it.
He doesn't blow, he sucks.
If you suck, it generally means you have no skill and/or talent.
