Man Repeller

I found this website called Men Repeller and I LOVE the explanation of the term:


man·re·pell·er1  [mahn-ree-peller]

–noun
outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex. Such garments include but are not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls (see: human repelling), shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.
–verb (used without object),-pell·ing, -pell·ed.
to commit the act of repelling men:
Girl 1: What are you wearing to the party?
Girl 2: My sweet lime green drop crotch utility pants!
Girl 1: Oh, so we're man repelling tonight?
*DISCLAIMER: the above conversation is not a dramatization, took place in this room 5 minutes ago.
Origin: 
2009-10; repellius (ptp. of repellia to eliminate male attention), equiv. to L repel- (s. ofrepellix) unattractive, celibate, paris fashion week, M.C. Hammer + -repel -ler1



man·re·pell·ant, noun

I love it most because right now, at this very second, I am wearing both boyfriend jeans and clogs.
