ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Okay, so imagine you're playing with your friends and you're pretending to be a bossy person who always wants their way. That's kind of what a termagant is. A termagant is a word that people used to use a long time ago to describe a woman who was really bossy, mean, and always yelling. Sometimes people still use this word today, but it's not very nice to say because it's kind of mean. It's important to remember that everyone deserves to be treated with kindness and respect, no matter how they act.
