Mandatory TikTok Trends: 10 Ways to Know If You’re Chuegy in 2021 (And What the Hell the Word Even Means)

It’s hard to keep up with all the new slang these days, but you really should try because you want to know when someone’s insulting you, right? The latest term being slung around is “chuegy” (pronounced chew-gee), and it’s not a compliment.

It originated on TikTok and essentially means “unfashionable.” But if you want to get really technical with it, here’s a handy-dandy alignment chart from Twitter that helps differentiate the adjective from other slang terms.

So how do you know if you’re “chuegy”? Well, it seems to be more common among millennials (according to Gen Zers) and women (which some think makes it misogynistic) but there are other signs you can look for to see if you’re hopelessly out of touch (or just getting old).
