The term degenerate is defined as “having lost the physical, mental, or moral qualities considered normal and desirable; showing evidence of a decline” but is usually used by aforementioned social conservatives to refer to various progressive social developments such as the normalization of casual sex, the LGBTQ+ community, the usage of drugs, the degradation of religious values, etc etc.
