Shortened from legitimate, Legit refers to either the validity and/or acceptance of an item.

Can also be used as the opposite of bogus, meaning that all is fair and valid.

Now used by the more generic and less insightful of our peers to convey a sense of "good" or "appreciable" similar to terms such as "cool" or "awesome"
Correct usage: Nazism is a fallacious ideology that leads to a betrayal of naturally evolved human instinct. Nazism is not legit. Nazism is bogus.

Common usage: "Wow bra my teacher is really hot. Therefore I think she is legit.
