Question "Feedism" vs. "Feederism"

I'm not new to this topic but I have noticed that recently several folks here have begun to use the term "feedism" over the term "feederism" when talking about 'Erotic Weight Gain.'

Is this done intentionally (on purpose)? Why the shift to the term 'feedism'? (I could guess but I don't want to presume to know)

personally i like the new term, because feederism only tells feeder, feedism also includes feedees and foodees maybe, its just feed-ism.

i like it so much, i dont know if i am totally correct but this is the way i feel.

Because this is the internet and new popular terminology spreads like a viral 4chan meme? =o

Feederism implies that it's all about the feeder and kinda ignores the feedee, which seems like a rather backwards view of it to me. After all, a feedee can stuff and gain on her own, but a feeder needs somebody to feed.

Feedism is a more accurate way of describing the fetishes and has less of an assumptive bias.

Does it really have to be an "ism" at all? Can one not simply talk of people who rather like it when attractive members of the opposite sex rather overdo the food and put on a little weight? Or would that be entirely too straightforward...?

It would take too long to type all of that out. Feedism is much quicker.

Methinks this is the terminological equivalent of a, "backronymn". A couple lazy people - either accidentally or on purpose - shortened the term, "feederism" and now we're all coming up with ways to make it sound legit.

No, Totmacher, there was a thread discussion a few months back about something to do with feederism, and someone said he preferred the term feedism because he said it was all inclusive. It was the first time I'd heard it. I think maybe it's caught on. I've probably used the term feedism myself since then. I can't remember the thread or the poster tho. Sorry.

Well I definitely used it in the "Who is the 'feedee' of whom you speak?" thread. I might have used it earlier in another one tho.

Just because the term's been around for a few months doesn't mean it wasn't coined at some time. I stand by my belief the term's been around before it had a meaning.

I'd like to think the change in terms was more intentional rather than just due to lazyness. E.g. As Fuzzy says "Feederism implies that it's all about the feeder and kinda ignores the feedee" while feedism is less assumptive.

I still wonder how a change in terminology like this can be adopted by the group en masse. Should it be voted on? Or just by its usage seen to have been adpoted? And I wonder if those who use the "other main site" (Fantasy Feeder) would take on a similiar change in terminology so easily?

Yah, what they said. I don't remember who proposed it, but I thought that it was a better term than feederism. I'm still not totally enamoured with it, as I think for a lot of people interested in feedism there is not so much of a 'feed' component, but it is the best term we've had yet IMO.

The same way any word gets changed/added/dropped from any language. Languages evolve and/or die out. I'm sure that 500 years from now the English language will be quite different from what it is now, assuming it survives that much longer. There is actually a branch of linguistics that deals with just that, but I forget what it's called at the moment.

I don't know that all languages do that. The English language is particularly idiosyncratic, patchwork, and promiscuious. If it wasn't for British imperialism, I doubt anybody would have bothered to learn it.

Icelandic language spoken today would be perfectly intelligible to an individual of that region from centuries ago.

I think you just argued my point. I just can't imagine that any language, even one's spoken in relative isolation, wouldn't evolve. Technology brings new words, new understanding of the world around you brings new words. There are many living languages besides english that are quite different from their younger selves, but still recognizable. They've evolved.

You're speaking about vocabulary. In the english language pronounciation, grammar, and graphology in addition to vocabulary change at a rate that, on the surface, appears quite rapid even when compared to the growth of science, technology, and philosophy over the same period.

You're absolutely right, but just to be clear, I wasn't just thinking about modern day science when I posted before. Anything that humans invent or discover to make a task easier is technology. I was actually wondering about how something like the invention of soap would have changed a language, like does it change the meaning of "clean?" Was there a different form of the word "clean" before soap? Like that kind of thing.
