Two Terms the Media Use that Annoy Me

6 Jul

Two terms that absolutely, positively annoy me are “untimely death” and “a new body.”  These terms are often used by different media sources for different reasons.

What does “untimely death” mean?  Is a death really ever timely?  Even though we know that we all have to leave this earth at some point, no death is ever “timely.”

Also, when female celebs lose weight or tone up or whatever, it is often referred to as “a new body.”  It is NOT a new body; it is the same body that has undergone transformation.  It is neither old or new; it is different. This is only used to describe a change in weight for females.  I don’t know if has been used in reference to men.  All the more reason to be annoyed.

Just wanted to share.
