carebear
 n.— «The new word, an insult, is carebear. I was called a carebear today by someone who didn’t agree with my assessment of a game that I didn’t enjoy. I’ve also seen others use it directed at people who they don’t like. Such as: “U suk. Ur a carebear.” or: “U must b a carebear, cuz u suck.”» —“New Slang Of The Year” by Matt Burris Good Blimey! (Interlachen, Florida) Apr. 27, 2004. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
