Actually, it's not very new. In fact, it's getting so old that even us old people are starting to use it.
I refer to "It Sucks."
So, there's a need for vivid language to express the epitome of badness.
And there's always a need for the younger generation (boy do I sound like an old fogy tonight!) to invent expressions which dismay their elders.
And the meaning of words changes over years.
and so on and so on.
But "It Sucks" is a homophobic expression suggesting that the epitome of badness is how gay men have sex.
And I'm not planning to get used to it.
