May 15 Word of the Day
A few weeks ago, no one had “cheugy” in their vocabulary . Now everything is saturated with the word. It’s in our heads. It’s in our homes. Everyone is asking: “Am I cheugy? Am I a basic ass bitch? Am I GUILTY of being cheugy?”

The proliferation of cheugy in the mainstream discourse can only be attributed to one source: mental terror. It’s an orchestrated psychological trap to make you question your tastes and interests in the eyes of others.

You are not a cheug. YOU’RE PERFECT!!!!

It is very suspicious that the cheugy mascot is a Minion, a literal cyclops, a deformed
yellow panopticon in overalls ... do not let the all-seeing eye to control you. Be vigilant. Resist cheugy psyops.
Becca is another victim of cheugy psyops. I saw the garbage truck take all her Ugg boots yesterday. She even removed “I LOVE The Office!” from all her dating profiles. She’s unrecognizable.

A noun for when a person tries to assert that both sides of a debate are equally X (reprehensible, reasonable, etc.)

Also "bothsideism" possible

A possible synonym of "equivocation"

Use of term accelerated with the Trump administration's refusal to denounce white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups, preferring to compare them to their protestors.
From NYTimes Opinion Newsletter, 8/17/17

"A forwarded email from President Trump’s personal lawyer defending the president’s bothsidesism on the violence in Charlottesville wrongly equates George Washington with Robert E. Lee, The Atlantic’s Yoni Appelbaum argues. “The analogy is central to the cult of Lee, to the mythos of the Lost Cause, and to the denial of what the Confederacy actually was,” he tweeted.
