Reminds me of 10-15 years ago when “hipster” was used to describe anybody who dressed somewhat different than the most mainstream fashion…or listened to indie rock or…liked books, or coffee…or had a road bike…or whatever other weird lazy ways it was used as a descriptor. When a word is used that often it loses power and meaning pretty rapidly.

Problematic, radioactive, abusive, oppressive, difficult, soul-crushing. Any of these words are better than toxic.

likehelpful

I associate “toxic” and “problematic” directly with difficult, entitled people. So I tend to be more specific when referring to a person/situation. Terms like “insulting” “intellectually dishonest” “childish” etc.

Totally. Partner at my agency fucked a junior, groped another, sexually harassed another at a work function, and is now dating a former intern. We need a new word for that.
