A slang word originating from Shakespeare's use of the word "swaggering" in "A Midsummer Night's Dream." It is not used in the same manner, but that's the first time it appears in the English language.

It was not created by the Scottish, by men in the United States to express their sexuality, by Jay Z (lol yes, people actually say this stuff), the unintelligent, by teenagers, or younger children. The word "swagger" was made by Scandanavians as early as the 1530s, but Shakespeare's use of the word gave it a new meaning (as early as 1590).

Many hate this word because they believe that black rappers made it, and so many people use it so often. It compels them to get on the internet with the sole purpose of bashing others for using the word.

It's very sad how so many people who insult others for using this word don't understand the word's origin, nor the basics of any language... As time passes, languages evolve.

If you think I'm wrong, use the internet to learn something. Do your own research, don't take my word for it.

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.

A stupid saying that's overused. People 90 per cent are dumb teenagers, 10 per cent are little ass kids trying to be cool use it for EVERYTHING and also as their facebook name thinking that shit's cute: 'I just opened a cabinet, SWAG.' 'I just fell down, lol, SWAG.' 'SWAGNIFICENT' '(your name) idontgiveafuq gotsswagg' 'lives in swagtown' 'works at swagville' 'That show was so SWAG.' 'I just finished brushing my teeth, SWAG.' 'Hey guys, just woke up, SWAG.' 'Lol, I got kicked out of class, SWAG.' 'I cursed the teacher out, SWAG.' 'Tumbling on tumblr in class, SWAG.' '(your name) the swag god' 'texting in class, SWAG' ... 'SWAG.' You don't have no motherfucking swag.
You: 'I got swag.'
Me: 'That's because you're a fucking retard trying to be like the rest of the try hards thinking their dumb ass have swag.'

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.
