Norwood Vocal Tics
#1
This thread is for documenting words, phrases, or styles of argumentation that are endemic to Norwoods. I'll start off with one:

"You Nerd" / "You Dork"

You see this one a lot on Twatter, as a sentence-ending particle conveying the Norwood's disdain for their interlocutor. It's funny for two reasons:

  1. It depends on a a notion of "high school social hierarchy" - nerds, jocks, preps, etc. - that is totally informed by media, and has no connection to contemporary life (I think Sphag posted about this). Thus, in trying to shame the target for being "out of touch", the Norwood shows his own ignorance as to how status hierarchies are actually structured.
  2. Following from the previous reason: It is almost solely used by Alphabet People and other unequivocal freaks. They are the lowest of the low, but still desperately want to believe there's someone below them.

The word "dude", for one. Also a tendency to mimic patterns, inflections, and phrasing from south park when speaking. I feel as though south park and its' influence on 'woods is possibly worth further analysis and discussion in general.
#3
Referring to a group of people as "dudes" is high Norwood.

However, the most Norwood phrase on the internet at the moment has to be "goes hard". When not pretending to be schoolyard bullies, Norwoods will use the phraseology of their favorite wholesome niggos.

This is part of a more general trend, common to Norwood-adjacent groups, of adopting regional / dialectal slang to try and sound like "common people". See also: wokoids' adoption of "y'all" and "folks".

“Dork” was popularized by Chapo Trap House.

I have heard a couple of very cringe late millennials use “my dude” and “my guy” to be very condescending to people. Not sure if this is common.

“Goes hard” might be bn slang but in the context Norwoods use it, the subtextual joke is they are mocking lower class young white men who proudly enjoy stuff like rap music, Halo, Eminem, Monster Energy, etc.
#6
"Bud" is also one, goes with "dude". Conformity through peaceful submission. Can be done by redditized youths, spiritual norwood.
#7
"Yikes."

"lot to unpack here..."

I think it would help to distinguish soy from norwood. Soy can be in youth, but it is youth broken into submission quickly, says schoolmarm toned words like "yikes" or "bud", as I've seen firsthand. Norwood is a slow burn that manifests fully by age 30, it is subtle and wasn't pointed out until recently.
#9
Starting sentences with "I mean," is comorbid with thinning temples.
#10
Perhaps "Please face the wall" & variations thereof when angered. Impotent soyrage.

Interesting how they pretend to be the bully and the schoolmarm at the same time.

One of my favorite things about you people is how you come up with "new" variations of what's essentially the same insult (NPC, Bugman, Norwood) every few years and act as if you've come up with this unprecedented breakthrough every single time

They're very distinct characters. This is as ignorant as suggesting that gigachad is just chuck norris.

The distinct characters of "disparaging mental caricature of an otherwise normal person",  "disparaging mental caricature of an otherwise normal person", and "disparaging mental caricature of an otherwise normal person". You got me!

The NPC is just the unremarkable member of the hylic masses, someone who can be reprogrammed into accepting that we've always been at war with Eurasia in a heartbeat and this won't really register any more than a slight change in the weather.

Bugman and Norwood I consider essentially different from this. They're the defeated souls, rather than the soulless. I'd say the rough definitions you can use to tell them apart is that the Bug is a sharper human specimen who has been crushed down into spiritual irrelevance by consistent long-term pressure, now just a complacent servant of the hive. Maybe smarter and livelier than an NPC, he might chastise renegades, but never with any vigour or ingenuity. The last shred of humanity in them demands action, but it's totally sublimated to the machine that broke him.

Norwood is similar but maybe less integrated, a kind of free-range bugman. What the people who would have become bugmen are becoming now that the machine has fewer stable slots for its servants to be pacified with. These are guys who have a light inside them, maybe not quite bright sparks but they have potential, and despite the fact that the world gives them less reason to every single day they're still stuck in this slavish state of making any concession against and compromise with their nature necessary to keep in step with the normalfag combine. It's this spirit of grimacing out a smile as you "joke" that "racists don't care what race you are as long as you're racist". Torn between the light inside that's trying desperately to avoid being snuffed and the promise of peaceful oblivion if they'll just embrace the encroaching darkness. This is the norwood. He knows we can't trust the government to serve us, he listens to the edgy podcasts, but he'll still die before he risks offending anybody who's *in* with this social system that's killing us all. They're a disgusting character because they had the potential to see but not the will.

Using the word 'normal' as something to be proud of or aspire to is a norwood vocal tic.
