Bekakt is a bit of a slang term to indicate posh people in Dutch. Literally it means "shat on", and people who use this type of accent are often called "kakkers".
hahaha I didn't know that it was so rude
I only knew that it's the Dutch word for 'posh
' in English.
It's not super rude, but it's certainly not very highbrow speech. The regular word for posh is "deftig".
I knew that it was a bit slang, but not that it was a bit rude. I thougth that 'deftig' meant 'smart' like nice clothes etc.
I remember when I discovered that "rot op" was rude, before that I didn't realise, and thought it was similar to "shut up", but a Dutch person said it was more like "fuck off" I was really surprised that I hadn't known haha. It was the same with "scheisse" in German, a German person said it wasn't nice for a girl to say it, but I thought it was like in French or English where it's not so bad.
