ASL Meaning On TikTok
TikTok users are using the short form ASL to describe various things, although the real full form of this abbreviation is American Sign Language. TikTok users are writing the term in short and capital form to refer it to various things.
One full form that TikTok users and various other social media users refer to is “as hell”. You might have seen this before on social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. For your understanding we are sharing an example of it: one Twitter user wrote, “I woke up about hungry asl this morning lmfaoo.” Another user wrote: “I gotta be getting old asl because every time I get an iOS update notification, I go ‘another one?’ I used to be excited asl when them updates would come through.”

How To Use ASL On TikTok
As users have come to know about the meaning of this slang term they have responded differently. Being annoyed by the meaning, one Twitter user wrote, “I just wanna know… who decided asl…. meant as hell… bc make it make sense… idkkkk sounds silly”.
Another user said, “’Asl’ now meaning ‘as hell’ really throws my old millennial brain for a loop”. “I just wanna know… who decided asl…. meant as hell…. make it make sense…” added another.
Not being able to figure out the relevance between ASL and “As hell” another annoyed user wrote, “Who the f–k is using ‘asl’ as a shortener for ‘as hell’? I’m old [as f–k] because that will always mean something else to me.”
Some Twitter users believe that the term ASL stands for Age, Gender, and Sex but Gender Z seems unsatisfied with this explanation. For the latest generation, ASL is the short form for As Hell.
The war between Millenials and Gen Z remains intact as they are not ready to compromise on any one of the meanings. For Gen Z ASL stands for As hell and Millenials refer to it as Age, Gender, and Sex. However, another slang term that is making its way towards the foryou page is cheugy.
