The Brief: Thotumn, a combination between the words THOT and autumn is a successor to Hot Girl Summer.


As Pumpkin Spice Latte season begins, it looks like Hot Girl Summer and City Girl Summer may soon be over. Luckily, according to the internet, thotumn is coming next. A combination of the term THOT and “autumn,” thotumn is presumably a time for people to enjoy themselves and to pursue hookups and romance before cuffing season.

Although THOT is typically used as a derogatory insult directed towards girls and women, the usage of the word in relation to thotumn suggests that women are using it with a positive connotation to imply that they will be going out and having fun this fall season
