‘Bitch Face’ is in the Dictionary Now!

Your resting “bitch face” is now officially a thing, at least in the dictionary it is!

The Oxford Dictionary has been trying to keep up with the times, as they continue to update their pages with modern day common words.

Joining “bitch face” in the pages are words like “bruh”, “mic drop”, and “manspreading” along with a few others.

Oxford defines “bitch face” as:


“(Typically with reference to a woman) a scowling facial expression, especially as the natural cast of a person’s features.”

The definition seems pretty on point but the example sentences could probably use a little work:

She strapped on her bitch face and attitude.”

“I will personally come to your house and crack you across your bitch face if you’re not in attendance.”

Can you remember the last time you ‘strapped on your bitch face’? Neither can we.

Oxford did however, miss the mark entirely with their entry for bruh.

noun/US informal

“A male friend (often used as a form of address)”

The origin sounds like a bad scholarly analysis:

“Early 20th century (as an informal title before a man’s name): perhaps originally representing an African-American pronunciation of brother; compare brer, brah.”

Their example sentences prove they really didn’t research the use of the word:

get off the Internet and get a life bruhwhere are my bruhs at?

Should we be excited the Oxford Dictionary is attempting to keep up with modern times? Good for them but we’ll stick to Urban Dictionary when it comes to words like these!
