Dictionary.com is considering adding the offensive LGBT+ slang “bussy” to its list of definitions.
The online dictionary is considering the addition after Lil Nas X made the request on Twitter.
The country/trap rapper tweeted: “for pride month it’s really important that our government finally takes a stand and adds bussy to the dictionary.”
Dictionary.com, which is not owned by the US government, responded: “We added WAP to the dictionary, so anything’s possible. dictionary.com/e/acronyms/wap.”

However, dictionary.com might have trouble defining the word “bussy” for people who aren’t familiar with LGBT+ culture.
The word is translated as “boy pu*sy” by Urbandictionary.com.
Lil Nas X is the first openly gay country trap rapper in music history. He found cross-over fame after Billy Ray Cyrus hopped on the remix to “Old Town Road” in 2018.
LNX is still being pushed by the industry as an influential artist, largely due to his sexuality, not his talent.
