Zero tolerance of the word Banter

Where did this come from?

I didn't think southerners in England tolerated this.

Am I right?
Banter.

It's London street slang. Globalized across the UK lmao.

Pretty much a lot of slang used by teens, 'peng', 'leng', 'on my ones', 'wasteman', 'yard' is all London. A lot of it originates from Jamaica.
The word banter is usually okay in London, the home counties and Manchester.
"Bants" on the other hand. :argh:

I always hear it more in the North of England. Maybe its the culture of the North ?

Slang has immersed all over the UK, its almost the 'culture' of just teens tbh.

But the slang is in adults too. They use it aswell.

It isn't all about just the teens.

Yeah, you're right actually. The demographic seems to be mostly teens though but that could just be a misconception of mine - I don't know stats or anything lmao.
I love banter unless its weak and one dimensional :u:

What's wrong with the word, no need to take it so seriously, it's just a bit of banter that's all.
I can see why people don't like the word/slang though.
Its being from London is conjecture at best, there is no serious evidence whatsoever. Its origins are unknown and have been for 350 years.
Didn't know banter was a slang word.

Millennial adults have a thing about banter because they were teens during the era when it was the coolest thing ever. The teens these days have ripped a lot of their pop culture straight out of the early 00s playbook.
