The other day I saw a friend use the term “frape” to describe having her Facebook being hijacked. I told her that it made me really uncomfortable to see a portmanteau containing “rape” to describe something so trivial, but I was afraid that she’d start an argument or tell me to lighten up. In reality she instantly deleted that post and thanked me for correcting her.
