1. Noun. The physical sense of repulsion upon encountering a concept or situation one finds disgusting.
2. Noun. A situation or concept which engenders this reaction.
3. Verb, transitive. To cause someone to have this reaction.
4. Verb, intransitive. To experience this reaction.

The concept of the "squick" differs from the concept of "disgust" in that "squick" refers purely to the physical sensation of repulsion, and does not imply a moral component.

Stating that something is "disgusting" implies a judgement that it is bad or wrong. Stating that something "squicks you" is merely an observation of your reaction to it, but does not imply a judgement that such a thing is universally wrong.

The statement "kiddie porn squicks me" and "kiddie porn disgusts me" may both be true. In my case, the second sentence is true, and I assume that the first is also true, but, having never encountered it, I have no way of knowing for sure.

In general, distinguishing between "squick" and "disgust" is an important part of living in a tolerant society.

It is my contention that most anti-gay attitudes, for instance, are the result of people finding that gay sex squicks them -- and, because they don't know about the concept of the "squick", they assume that gay sex DISGUSTS them, which implies that there is something morally objectionable about it.
Joe loves hot wax, needles through sensitive parts of his body, cutting, and flogging -- but tickling? That squicks him.

Jan 15 Word of the Day
The Nussy, or the โ€œnose pussyโ€, if you will, was discovered during the corona virus pandemic of 2020. People that had to be tested for Covid-19 had to have their nose swabbed right where the brain connects, which often led to people rolling back their eyes and gagging.

A nose-swab-fetish developed from this, because we, as humans, ruin everything.
โ€œOh fuck yeah, swab my nussyโ€

Sir, please, I went to medical school

โ€œuwuโ€

A term originated around 1994 in the alt.tasteless newsgroup as a response to the question "What is the sound of a good skull fucking?" The term was quickly picked up by the alt.fuck.the.skull.of.jesus group and used primarily within Subgenius circles as a verb meaning "To fuck someone in the skull." The term was co-opted by the BDSM community some time latter, and its original meaning is often overlooked or ignored.
It's not often that I get to squick, but since I've become a mortician it is much easier.

An interjection expressing physical disgust at an object, action, or situation.

Somewhat similar to ick, but implies more disgust than simple distaste -- something that elicits the gag reflex would also be worthy of a "Squick!"

For example, if presented with a plate full of broccoli for dinner, one might say, "Ick." One would say "Squick!" if this broccoli had been at the back of the refridgerator for two months and was now moldy, slimy, and rotting.
"Look at that bloody roadkill! Squick!"

Squicking is similar to skullfucking in that an individual copulates with the skull of another individual. It differs, however, in that while traditional skullfucking uses preexisting orifices, squicking involves the creation of new ones, possibly through the use of a drill.
I brought my drill over to her house and squicked her.
