(Adj.) a person that is immune from proof and will not consider evidence, change his or her perspective, or reconsider an idea. The same way that a waterproof boat is protected from water, a proofproof person is protected from proof.

(Adj.) a theory that is constructed in such a way as to be impossible to disprove, ie it is non-falsifiable.
“Wow, Sean Hannity just admitted that he will not believe that Russia colluded with the Trump campaign no matter how much proof there is. He is proofproof.”

Immanuel Kant’s deontological theory of rights is based on the supposed inherency of worth or value to certain ideas. So no matter how much evidence or logic you muster, it won’t change. It’s a proofproof theory.”

n. An industry that likes to mask social judgment in terms of people’s health and well being. So for example if you think crowds are unhealthy in general but not for people protesting what you consider to be a worthy cause, then you are in the field of public health. Not to be confused with pubic health which is more important
It’s great when public health professionals steered people to harm reduction during the HIV crisis rather than abstinence only education.

n. A sweeping phrase used to describe any range of behavior involving sex, intimacy, or genitalia that is alleged to be inappropriate by the accuser or the speaker. The behavior may be illegal such as extortion, assault and battery, or indecent exposure, but more often it is a legally ambiguous situation where two consenting adults were involved in the situation until one participant, usually the woman, seeks to contest the context, unspoken assumptions, or power dynamics in the circumstance. The disclosing party usually wishes to publicly expose or air moral qualms with the situation. Whether or not the conduct is truly wrong depends on ones personal views on matters involving gender roles, sex, marriage, jocular conduct, and workplace norms. The phrase is closely associated with the #MeToo movement whose proponents call for shifting the balance of power between genders in the workplace and opponents accuse the movement of being joyless manhaters.

I was like on this first date with a dude and he didn’t ask if I wanted white or red wine. When we got to his house he tried to hook up right away win any conversation. After a night of raunchy oral sex I really regretted it. That’s sexual misconduct!

Wow. The anchor of a morning TV show called *me*, a 21 year old intern, to his office and exposed his Johnson then walked away. He hasn’t fired me or even acknowledged my existence before or since. That guy is a strange dude and I’d say that was sexual misconduct.
