Simp and goading; What is a simp? What is goading? Let's find out together!
simp and goading

Huwag kasi puro simp and goading.

Bago tayo gumawa ng kung anu-anong post sa Facebook, basahin muna natin kung ano ang ibig sabihin ng mga kinahihiligan natin na terms:

How is a simp defined?

1. simp (plural simps) (slang) A man who foolishly overvalues and defers to a woman, putting her on a pedestal. (Wikitionary, 2020)

2. A man that puts himself in a subservient/submissive position under women in hopes of winning them over, without the female bringing anything to the table. (Urban Dictionary, 2012)

3. Simp is a slang insult for men who are seen as too attentive and submissive to women, especially out of a failed hope of winning some entitled sexual attention or activity from them.

Translation? The word simp is meant to troll young men for doing anything for a girl to get some action he supposedly deserves.

While much older as a term, simp massively trended among late 2019 and early 2020 due in part to a TikTok trend among male members of Generation Z called “Simp Nation.” The slang has been criticized for stereotyping such men as effeminate and implies women are manipulative sexual objects. However, the term is also evolving some more general senses of liking someone, akin to the slang stan.

Example: If telling his girlfriend he would always be there for her makes him a simp, then I guess he’s been simping for a long time now. (Dictionary.com, 2020)

4. simpleton: a person lacking in common sense


What in the world is goading?

1. provoke or annoy (someone) so as to stimulate some action or reaction. (Oxford, 2020)

2. drive or urge (an animal) on with a goad. (Oxford, 2020)

3. to touch an animal with the end of a pointed object in order to make it angry or encourage it to do something. (Cambridge, 2020)

4. to make a person or an animal react or do something by continuously annoying or upsetting them  (Cambridge, 2020)

5. something that urges or stimulates into action (Merriam-Webster, 2020)

6. something that pains as if by pricking (Merriam-Webster, 2020)

Ang ibig sabihin nyan sa simple na language ng online na mundo AY BAITING. HINDE PO HAYOP ANG MGA KALARO MO PARA I-GOAD mo TO GET ATTENTION and REACTIONS.

So, simp and goading?

Sana ay naintindihan po natin kung bakit hinde biro ang simp and goading.

Maraming salamat po sa pagbasa.
