What does ‘poggers’ mean?
Poggers is Australian slang for someone who engages in emotional diarrhea aka tears/weeping/crying.
Think of poggers as crying with absolutely no restraint, without a care of what’s socially acceptable and without any concern or respect for others. It’s the kind of crying that makes you feel worse about your own problems because it triggers an unexpected wave of empathy. We’re talking ugly, snot-slinging sobbing from the depths of your soul weeping – the kind that makes your eyeballs throb and puts a migraine on speed dial.
It’s like Camus said “The whole world is watching me weep”. One day you will shine bright like a diamond at least once when all eyes are on you.
Poggers is a term used in Australian slang for young girls. The term comes from the assumption that these girls are pubescent, or ‘pogged’ up, and still have traces of innocence left in their eyes.
Pogers were believed to be innocent until they turned 18 on January 1st after which it was assumed they would become ‘grogers’. These terms were most likely coined by longshoremen who would see teenage girls on ships and docks, where IDs weren’t checked. ‘Grog’ is a type of alcohol and it’s also been suggested that this was related to the idea that underage drinkers might not be able to handle alcohol very well since they had never touched it before as teens.

Poggers is a slang word for someone who is constantly in touch with others on the internet and has an addiction to staying up-to-date. The term originates from Facebook but is commonly used now for all sorts of social media including Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, and everything else.
Poggers use the internet excessively and even find it difficult to have conversations without referring to what they’ve seen online that day first. It’s like they can’t get enough information since they always need more feed backs from their friends or followers or whatever. They’re usually over stimulated by how much information there was on the web that day and are desperate for more only a few hours after coming online again.
