It's the latest in the 'modern phrases I hate' series. I mean what the fuck does it mean?

What usually happens is someone accuses someone else of having a nasty opinion usually based on very tenuous evidence and if the other person denies being racist/sexist/whateverelseist they get told to own it or accused of refusing to own it.

It's bollocks, that's all. I'm not buying it.

Nah it's good.  Cheers.

So you're planning to own it by being gifted it?









One of my bugbears, the old "gift" as verb.

Yikes, okay. Let's unpack this. This ain't it chief, not a good look! Oof. Who hurt you? You must be fun at parties. Is this really the hill you want to die on? Seems like you're having a normal one. Big "own it" energy.

Yeah no, I just can't even

I still say 'owned'. As in 'Wolves got owned by Man City'.
