It's most definitely used as an insult.

It's majority of the context I've seen are from people who were lower on the social ladder and try to get revenge feeling superior about knowing about subjects/jokes etc that other people don't.

Yes, its an insult for people who think there's any value in the status quo, used often by progressives who think society needs to be radically altered because there's not sufficient equality of outcome between people

For example, someone who believes women get paid 77 cents on every dollar a man earns may call someone who does not believe this a "normie", since from that first person's perspective, the latter's ignorance is holding society back from a state where women will be paid 100 cents to every dollar a man earns.

i work in a field basically devoid of women, because they just can't handle the work. women can get the same pay when the can lift the same load. if a woman can only lift 77 pounds for every mans 100 why should we be paid the same? equality isn't equality unless our metrics are the same. whats actually ignorant is to assume all work is worth the same amount based on gender instead of performance. thats just downright stupid. anyways, feel free to dogpile on me for being "misogynistic" since im quite certain none of you feel the same

Read my post above. We’re moving away from this off-topic discussion (on top of other things wrong here). Last chance!

Can you elaborate on how this can take place in the workplace? 

I find it hard to believe a company posts a job and offers less salary to a woman as opposed to a man. Usually when a job is created the wage/salary is predetermined before the hiring process. 

My understanding is that the wage gap is an average over time, which is due to women taking more time off work then men. Usually due to maternity leave, which is a totally normal reason to be away from work. The fathers tend to keep working because after all you need income flowing in constantly to keep the growing family going.

Doesn’t get more obvious than this. The next post about ‘women in the workforce’ receives a moderation. No exceptions.

People should have thicker skin these days.

So do you think its not an insult? I've alway found that the word implies that the one saying it is better than the subject. If you said you enjoyed something popular and you were dismissed as a 'normie', would you not think that is an insult?

An insult depending on the context like most things,the argument you made about it was ridiculous imo as the OP that used that word didnt mean to use it in an insulting way.



It is just like a young person dismissing an older person's opinion with the line, Ok Boomer! People need to toughen up and get over it.

In the context that this word is usually used, I would say yes, it is an insult.
