About

Yassification is an internet slang term that refers to the process of something becoming more LGBTQ+ adjacent. Although the term "yass" has been prevalent in LGBTQ+ meme circles for some time, "yassification" wasn't used until August 2020 on Twitter. The term spread to other platforms like Tumblr and TikTok going into 2021 and also inspired variant concepts like "to yassify" and yass pills.

Origin

In late August 2020, Twitter[1] user @MINTCHIP was the first to coin the term "yassification." The tweet used the phrase "yassification gas" in reference to an imagined gas that would "yassify" unsuspecting people. However, @MINTCHIP's account has been suspended for unknown reasons. Evidence of the tweet can be found in a reply posted on August 26th, 2020, from Twitter[2] user @puppyoveralls. The reply (shown below) reads "I鈥檓 choking on the yassification gas."

Spread

On August 28th, 2020, Twitter[3] user @yukikaerotica posted the first known use of the phrasal template, "the yassification of X," tweeting a picture of Japanese singer Yukika Teramoto with filters and stickers over her. The tweet (shown below) received 14 likes over the course of one year.

On November 6th, 2020, Twitter[4] account @colindotcom reused the term "yassification gas" in a tweet that read, "BREAKING: Biden has begun releasing YASSIFICATION gas into the environment and transmitting slay yes mamas through 5G 馃毃." The tweet, however, cannot be accessed because @colindotcom has a private account as of November 2021. The tweet received replies[5] though that give evidence of the tweet's virality.

In February 2021, Twitter users began comparing celebrities with each other by having one celebrity being the post-yassified version of the other. Twitter[6] user @matthewokay was the first to do this, tweeting, "slayyyter looks like the yassification of marjorie taylor greene," on February 8th, 2021. The tweet (shown below) received 42 likes over the course of nine months.
