Daily Prompt: No, Thank You

Today’s daily prompt:  If you could permanently ban a word from general usage, which one would it be? Why?

I can think of more than a few words I would like to see banned from general usage.  But lately, when reading internet articles, a popular term now that gets under my skin is “baby bump.”


You’ll see articles about pregnant women (celebrities usually) either “hiding” or “flaunting” their “baby bump.”  I don’t know why, but this gets under my skin.  I don’t like a pregnancy and a growing human fetus referred to as “a bump.”  It’s a baby.  A growing baby!  I don’t know where this term came from but I wish it would go away!
