There are many meanings for the word skunk besides being a smelly animal.  I am so forutunate that one is living under my front porch. The odor is absolutely delightful. Not to mention driving anywhere you can smell the fabulous perfome at least three or four times per trip. Plus, let’s not leave out the dogs.  They are very upset to be cleaned in an effort to remove the odor.  However, I have heard people use the term skunk when referring to another person.  It is usually a derogatory term an individual may refer to a person they dislike or that they may have done something they have a strong disapproval of. It is not very nice primarily if you have ever experienced their fine smell it is something you dislike intensely and will never forget.  People often say it when they find it as a way to make the other person well aware of how awful they are.  People do many things on a daily basis that others do not like.  Rather than swear it is a disparaging remark that makes the recipient truly aware of how the other person feels.  I frankly do not like name calling.  I find it serves no purpose.  Either tell the person how you really feel or keep your remarks to yourself.  However, in today’s society that seems next to impossible.  How many of the Karen videos have you seen on Facebook?  They all feel so entitled and believe they have the right to criticize, make nasty remarks and in general be rude.  They are no better or worse than anyone else.  They are not priviledged.  The old saying we all put our socks on one foot at a time is still true.  The world would be a much better place if people treated each other with kindness and respect, don’t you agree?
