What does Bada** mean?

An awesome rule-breaker

Being called a bada** is actually a compliment. It means you’re the kind of person who is seen as cool because you don’t just follow the rules. You may even have a leather jacket and a motorcycle, but owning these items is not a must to be labeled as such.

The term bada** has been around since the 1950s. Back then, it was used to describe someone who was seen as a threat for not fitting into societal norms, like a rebellious political activist. However, the meaning has changed over time.

These days, you don’t have to be dangerous to be a bada**. You just need to be willing to break a few rules and do cool things that others might not dare to do. These rules can be minor or major, it doesn’t really matter.

You might come across the term bada** in person, in text messages or online. When used online, it’s often abbreviated to BA to save space and time. This doesn’t change the meaning, it’s simply a shorter way to say the same thing.
