What Exactly Is Mom And Dad Slang?

Have you ever heard of someone calling another person “mom” or “dad”? Apparently, tons of people are leaving comments on celebrity’s social media pictures referring to them as mom or dad. Keith Habersberger, a staffer at BuzzFeed, kept being called a dad, but he isn’t a dad so he didn’t understand why people were calling him one. He did some research to find out.

Back when Kim Kardashian posted her infamous “break the Internet” picture, Lorde tweeted this in response:

People were seriously confused as to why she called Kim Kardashian her mom, so she took the time to explain what she meant on her Tumblr. Lorde explained, “Omg haha ok so. time to explain this. i retweeted kim’s amazing cover and wrote ‘MOM’, which among the youthz is a compliment; it basically jokingly means “adopt me/be my second mom/i think of you as a mother figure you are so epic” (obviously i love my own mama and she is the best tho) but straight after that i think someone else called out the cover saying kim has no right to look that sexy as she is a mother which is TOTAL trash – why should that stop her?”

In short, if someone refers to you as mom or dad, take it as a compliment. It’s a term of endearment and shows that you inspire them and they look up to you.
