Ok..."butthurt"

I’ve never heard this word until about a week ago. Since then I’ve heard it from 3 different girls in real life and now I just read it here on the SDMB (over in the pit.)

Is this some new craze? Was it on Friends or QEFTSG or something?

I’m feeling severely out of the loop.

I learened the word “butthurt” when I lived in Phoenix for a few years. I had never heard it before then, but after 5 years of hearing it , it grew on me. And it just explains things so nicely.
You heard it from me in the Pit probably.Heehee

i have never heard that before. what’s it mean?

If you say someone is butthurt, it menas they got an attitude over something.
Like, " I told him his hair was looking pretty bad and he got all butthurt."
