Douchebag (pronounced "doosh-bag") is a derogatory term that describes someone who is a pompous jerk, often mean to others without caring about hurting their feelings. There are several variations of the term, including douche, Dbag, doucheling, and douchebaggery.
Origin of douchebag
The slang term "douchebag" comes from the actual douchebag, which is part of a medical apparatus for cleaning out human orifices for hygienic purposes. The usage of douchebag as an insult dates back to at least the 1940s when people used it to insult people as "dirty" or "unclean."
However, it didn't become popular until the 1980s and 90s, when people began using it as an insult to describe others who behaved poorly. For example, if a jerk at school bullies people, you might say, "I can't stand that douchebag."
Since douchebag is a harsh insult, some settings, such as schools and formal workplaces, prohibit people from using it. Therefore, be reasonable with whom you use it because people may get offended.
