I keep hearing calls to retire the word "douchebag" because it's played out or overused. (Here and here, for example.) Really? So is the word "the," but we still need it! I mean, with people like Nikki Sixx and Spencer Pratt around, we have to have a word that adequately signifies a thing that's really bad for women. I plan on still using it, but if we had to, what's the best replacement for "douchebag"?
