Thot (2)

noun; acronym
That hoe over there; a woman who appears sexy or makes herself look available to men.
 
You would call a woman a thot when it is clear she is type of person who is actively trying to appear “hot” or “sexy” to grab the attention of other men. The word is used a lot in social media exchanges or on comments of pictures posted on apps like Snapchat or Instagram. A thot appears sexy and confident but in truth she is most likely self-conscious and seeking approval and validation of others, especially those of the opposite sex. However, “thot” is a very sexist term and is mostly used by men, although some women do use it.
Etymology : “Thot,” pronounced like the unrelated word “thought,” is an acronym for that hoe over there. “Thot” is essentially synonymous with more vulgar terms like slut, bitch, or whore. Therefore, “thot” likely developed as a euphemism for those taboo insults, as it seems less negative to comment “thot” on social media (where the term is usually used) than to post what you really mean which might otherwise be considered outright offensive (i.e., slut, bitch, whore). “Thot” is believed to have come from the Chicago rap scene around late 2011/early 2012, apparently being used in a rap music video. The crew on the music video set started using the word, and later in 2012 other Chicago-based rappers started incorporating “thot” into their lyrics. By 2014, “thot” began being used by more mainstream rappers, and the word caught on from there, appearing all over Twitter posts of rap lyrics.
