The word “based” is slang and will wind up in dictionaries, but don’t go looking in any online dictionaries, because you will get biased based, except for Urban Dictionary, which at least identifies who is saying what. Even dictionaries can be bent by editors to favor one side over another.
According to Urban Dictionary, it is “a word used when you agree with something; or when you want to recognize someone for being themselves, i.e., courageous and unique or not caring what others think.”
Considered an adjective, “based” is synonymous with “red-pilled” and an antonym of “cringe” and “woke”.
Some organizations and some people, left or right, have no sense of what young people are thinking and no sense of play. Duds lose my attention.
