Made-Up Word Monday

If you’re a regular reader here or on my Instagram page, you know I like to make up words. “Trumpectomy” and “Back-to-normaling,” for example. Every Monday I’ll feature a new word here for open minds. Any suggestions? Would love those, too.


Freegrettable

Today’s made-up word is freegrettable (adj.): used to describe deplorable acts committed by those who mistakenly believe they’re entitled to deny the rights of others in the name of their own personal freedom.

Derived from: free (enjoying personal rights or liberty) + regrettable (deserving regret; unfortunate; deplorable).

Related to freedumb (slang): “Stupidity masquerading as love of freedom; an assertion of one’s personal liberty which is perceived to be unreasonable or motivated by stupidity.”

  1. So clever! I’m guessing in its noun version it’s freegression? Freedom + Agression – the agression towards other and society masquerading itself as freedom? Thanks for the smile and food for thought!

  2. I just stumbled across your blog. I want to say hi! And also these Monday made-up word posts are a riot! 😀 I can’t see myself using freegrettable so much but freedumb is now definitely joining my vocabulary. And I’m sure more of your words will too. Thanks!
