How is "gearslutz" pronounced and where does it come from?

Hi,

I guess it's US based. So how do native English speakers pronounce "gearslutz"?

Where is "lutz" coming from?

It's from southern Kentucky and it's pronounced "Gare-slu-z" and Gearslutz was a Shawnee Chief during the early European expansion. "Gearslutz" roughly translates as "sh!t from your ass."

A lutz is a rearward leap while on ice skates.

And naturally anyone can make that leap... it's how you land that matters.
