"Shaking my head," isn’t it? Although I always just read it as a frustrated noise.
I only knew “shaking my head” - these answers informed me of “so much hate” but I’m very old vs. tumblr’s demographic
Shake my head or so much hate. Depends on context.
This is what I found out today — “shaking my head” seems so weird to me. Weird and kinda lame. It’s like a shrug — “i shake my head at you.” Why even bother posting a reaction? It’s nowhere near as aggressively silly and fun as *SHAKY FISTS OF DOOM* ;)
(none of that is aimed at you all, i was just very surprised that people use “smh” for “shaking my head” and IT FEELS SO WRONG.)
so much hate?
so much hate??
So Much Hate
I always THOUGHT it was “so much hate” but have been repeatedly informed its “shaking my head.”
So much hate - I remember hearing it actually means shaking my head, but I had been reading it as so much hate for so long that it stuck!
So much hate. I didn’t know it also meant shaking my head.
I prefer So Much Hate.
I always read it as “so much hate.” But then I am a terrible person.
Ha, well, if you’re terrible than I’m terrible and we’re all terrible! It makes me happy that so many more people (that responded) use it for “so much hate.”
I remember looking it up ages ago — probably when I first saw it on ONTD. It just fits “SO MUCH HATE”— and in these three small letters, it feels like that murmur under your breath when someone does something horrible or pisses you the fuck off.

you win, missnumbat! from now on, i will read all frustrated SMH posts in an australian accent, decrying their anguish with their newspaper.
