What does 'bae' mean? and is it a bad word?
I think most people use this word, 'bae', as someone's boyfriend or girlfriend. (I'm just guessing.)
Recently, I saw people using this word on certain websites or comment sections.
However, I also found that some people were upset and felt uncomfortable
about using this word and someone who uses this word.
(ex1 : Would upvote if you didn't use 'bae')
(ex2 : I don't know what's worse... The use of the word bae or the emojis)
(ex3 : If you use the word bae you're either retarded or you're really really retarded)
As a non-native English speaker, I don't even have a clue what does this word actually mean.
Is 'bae' a bad word? and where did it came from??
At first, I thought it was simply a shortened version of 'babe' or something.
But if that's true, I don't see any reason to call it a bad word.
Or, maybe, is it a bad word in certain languages?
Please answer me If you have any idea of it. Thank you so much and have a nice day. ^^
