Why do men use the word whilst instead of while Anonymous 19174

What are your theories as to why? It's such a bothersome word to me. It's weird because it happens whether or not they're British.

Also, this is a discussion/theory thread, so no smegsies answering. We like mystery (but not mystery.jpg).

Ahh! I meant to specify that I don't notice any women using this term online or irl. Only men. That's why I'm curious.

I use whilst all the time, I'm English.
Why does this bother you?

I've never heard anyone use "whilst" in real life, ever.

Foreskin boys get insulted for apparently having smeg, mostly from insecure cut guys. I guess it came from that.

Am I the only who genuinely thinks "smegsie" sounds incredibly cute?
It reminds me of some cute shy boy

Still cute when you look into it.

If you look too much into it, it's even cuter.

great thread op real head scratcher

if men around you really use whilst more, it means they go for the more formal and literary sound. i personally use both in writing to not have too much of the same word because that doesn't look nice.
