“Simp” is the new “cuck,” a catchall term that internet losers on the right and in the manosphere like to apply to any man who’s insufficiently misogynistic in their jaundiced eyes.
Just as the definition of “cuck” moved far beyond its literal meaning of a man whose partner is cheating on him to include any man who has sex with a woman who’s ever slept with anyone else ever, so simp is moving beyond its definition as a man who behaves in an obsequious manner towards women he hopes to bed to encompass all men who treat women with anything other than deep disrespect.
To one commenter in the MGTOW2 subreddit — a supposedly misogyny-free alternative to the much larger MGTOW subreddit — the word “simp” now means anyone who’s had sex with a woman, presumably because the shrieking misogyny of non-simps like him would tend to get in the way of consensual sex with women.
This post proved unpopular enough to win it nine downvotes from the denizens of MGTOW2. How sad and angry does a man have to be to alienate a bunch of MGTOWs with your excessive misogyny? I guess exactly this sad and angry.
