About

Hagmaxxing is a slang term popularized on X / Twitter and 4chan in 2024. While the earliest known viral use of the term saw X user @kinematografi encouraging people to start "hagmaxxing" by "living in the swamp" and "stirring potions constantly" (describing a hag witch), later use of the term was popularized by a fake Vice article supposedly written by journalist Mack Lamoureux, the headline of which reads, "Meet the hagmaxxers: Gen Z's new social trend of dating older women." A screenshot of the fake article was originally posted to 4chan's /int/ board, before it was circulated on X in May 2024.

Origin

The earliest known use of the term "hagmaxxing" online is a September 12th, 2021, post on 4chan's /r9k/ forum,[1] with an anonymous user writing, "I don't care about looking old. Im hagmaxxing. If it repels p**** away from me, then even better."

I dunno how my 30-something ass feels that my generation (millennial) is already being called hags. I mean shit I don't even view gen x'ers that being "that old" yet. Granted it appears people are using it as an affectionate terms so I'm probably being silly.
