What's with the zoomers saying "simp" all the time lately?

I don't know how or when this got tendy but i noticed it's a popular meme now to call people simps and to preach on how not to be a simp. even women are using the word orbiter all of a sudden.

This is primarily in the 18-23 crowd though. Why did this catch on so suddenly? It's kind of annoying because they are all very much blue pilled still

King Nation vs Simp Nation, just alpha and beta repackaged for a new generation.

makes it easier for the zoomer gen to pick up on it. making more kings by the day

[–]IAmLeejun38 points39 points  (13 children) | Copy

Simp is a 30+ year old term. Anyone who isn’t the main demographic of TRP knows this.

Edit: This is a term that has been used throughout the black community for generations. It wasn’t until the use of it in the song by Three 6 Mafia - Sippin On Some Syrup that other people (read: white people) starting using it for anything other than the meaning “simpleton”

TRP is standard black culture but written nice and organized so you nerds can understand it.

[–]AncientDragons5 points6 points  (3 children) | Copy

Yep- quite old. My dad’s generation used it to refer to anyone who was idiotic or “simple” meaning simple-minded or obtuse.

[–]liquorbaron3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

Yup. Or simpleton. I'm almost 40 and even I remember people throwing the term around once in a while. "What a simp" meaning what an idiot.

[–]Mescalean2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Ironically it still fits lol billy beta isnt the smartest dude on the block street wise usually

[–]passepar2t0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It doesn't come from the word 'to simper?'

[–]mortalcoil11 point2 points  (6 children) | Copy

Simp is an old word meaning idiot, but Gen Z recoined the word simp to mean:

Sucker Idolizing Mediocre Pussy

[–]IAmLeejun0 points1 point  (5 children) | Copy

It’s had that meaning since before Gen Z.

For a trill, working the wheel, a pimp not a simp Keep the dope fiends higher than the Goodyear Blimp

Sippin On Some Syrup - Three 6 Mafia

[–]mortalcoil10 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy

Was Three 6 Mafia not referring to a simp as an idiot?

[–]IAmLeejun0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

No. Pimp not a simp is a phrase that compares two opposite things.

[–]mortalcoil10 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

I think they just wanted a word that rhymes with pimp.

[–]IAmLeejun0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

No. It is well known amongst members of the black community that the current definition in pop culture of the word simp has been the standard definition since before the 90s.

[–]IAmLeejun0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

No. Like I said, in the black community this has been the standard definition for generations.

[–]IAmLeejun2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

White culture and black culture differ greatly. Black people have been using this in regards to it’s current meaning for generation. See OP

[–]catsdontsmile135 points136 points  (11 children) | Copy

Pewdiepie made a video about simp memes. If pewdiepie covers it, its already mainstream lingo.

[–]AntonioOSalazar32 points33 points  (9 children) | Copy

This is the correct answer, I wonder if he's redpilled too

[–]OfficerWade65 points66 points  (5 children) | Copy

He mainstreamed red pill through YouTube if you ask me. Just not in the way this sub is writing it. I think Pewds takes a more acceptable approach to what everyone is already thinking. It’s brilliant really because he kinda sneaks it in your drink without you knowing it.

[–]Acidwipes11 points12 points  (0 children) | Copy

totally get what you mean

[–]MonkModeKhan5 points6 points  (3 children) | Copy

I agree. Like when he was posting videos about books, most of them are /lit/ staples, so it seems like lurks/posts there, but he’ll never confirm it for us lol

[–]magicmetagic0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Could you link that video?

[–]natensk1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Look up pewdiepie red pill on YouTube, you can find all sorts of videos.

[–]MonkModeKhan0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

https://youtu.be/sbPjVsfnS_c Stoner by John Williams is a virtual unknown, but /lit/ on 4chan ranks it in their top 100 every year. No Longer Human isn’t exactly unknown, it’s one of the most widely read classics of Japanese literature, but it’s also beloved by /lit/ and is /r9k/core as well.

[–]IAmLeejun5 points6 points  (2 children) | Copy

This is my last comment about it but, red pill culture is just black culture that’s taken white people this long to become savvy to. Everything in TRP to black people is obvious.

[–]plastic-watering-can2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I thought I was the only one who noticed that lol

[–]AshyBoneVR40 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

This explains so damn much.

[–][deleted]  (1 child) | Copy


[–]Simpsrgay84 points85 points  (26 children) | Copy

Yeah its crazy how its all over the internet now, red pillers used to say it before it was cool.

[–]opper-hombre14 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

I still prefer the word cuck

[–]askmrcia0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That's popular too.

They even made a movie called "Cuck" on Vudo.

I watched it and it was basically a movie making fun of Red Pill extremist. Like whatever the general public think of MGTOW/RedPill, the main character of the movie was that.

They even used some of the RedPill lingo too. It was a pretty messed up movie too.

[–]CoyoteMusashi36 points37 points  (3 children) | Copy

Espscially Teenagers pick up words and slang pretty quickly. They mostly don't even associate a deeper meaning with a term. Although they know what it means, they don't internalize the deeper meaning.

It's like a 17 year old saying "what are thoooooose?!" to a classmate about his or her shoes. It was a pretty popular meme two or three years ago. Doesn't mean this particular teenager hates those shoes - it only means that he's making use of the meme to show his peers that he is in on it. Peer pressure in some cases.

[–]666Evo5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

show his peers that he is in on it

Nailed it.

[–]rprookie0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Not necessarily. We usually use the word “simp” to call out someone who’s chasing a female over the internet for some ass.

[–]TheFowo17 points18 points  (14 children) | Copy

As a person who's 21 and likes memes: simp is a person, orbiter, who is literally begging woman to date them. Literally. IDK where did the name come from but it all started with a video of very muscular guy who is stretching his muscles in the mirror while repeating "please my queen would you allow me to text you" unironically. Ofc girl who received the video sent it onto the internet and it quickly revitalized "friend zone" or "NiceGuy" memes under new name

[–]Hambone_Malone19 points20 points  (0 children) | Copy

It was used way before that. Probably like the 60's or 70's. It's the inverse of pimp. The acronym associated to it is Suckas Idolizing Mediocre Pussy.

[–][deleted]  (2 children) | Copy


[–]theyearsstartcomin4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Nick fuentes. Probably not the original, but him and the groypers and people who ran in those corcles were using it specifically in reference to "no egirls NEVER"

[–]smhfamswag0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy

simp isn’t from the red pill community lmao, niggas been calling losers who pander to bitches simp for decades. like someone said, mainstream media (white people) now just are picking up on the slang

[–]MalikDoJo0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

All the people in this sub are white my guy, you can tell by the way they talk. The language overall is just weird. Niggas ask the most obvious and dumb questions on here, I like to read it though. A few days ago I saw some dude ask “How do I handle a bitch who don’t like me at work” I was crying.

[–]smhfamswag1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Lmaoo, hell yeah. Saw a post that asked if it was beta for his girl to peg him. You know he white LMAO. Race aside, I get alotta knowledge from here and some of the posts are straight comedy like you said.

Most black men are naturally red pill, but you always got the loser simps here and there

[–]mikkeldaman0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Uhm... you know what's really beta? To laugh ("lmao" to quote you) in front of an internet stranger. Are you a little giggling bitch?

[–]smhfamswag0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Letting a woman peg you is probably the most bitch made thing you can do besides participating in cuckoldry. You’re basically begging her to cheat on you

[–]Monitorul-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

I think simp is a contraction of "simpleton", and people started conflating it with "chump", which already existed in the redpill community in the term AFC, or Average Frustrated Chump, inherited from the PUA days.

[–]breakdatass1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

please my queen would you allow me to text you

Can anyone find that video?

Slaving over mediocre pussy

Did you hear? The new cool thing to do is the “skull crushers” challenge & you’re a pussy if you don’t give yourself a traumatic brain injury on camera!! Gotta keep up with the trends!

[–]i-am-the-prize2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

one of my sons who's gotten some age appropriate RP info asked me last week: "dad, is a simp like a whiteknight you told me about?" he's 13. me: "um, yes, why?" him: "simp is an insult and meme being used now..."

[–]king_of_red_alphas1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Has nobody read Pimp by iceberg slim? I’m pretty damn sure it was in a that and that takes place in the 50’s.

In rap, It’s pimp slang that Too Short has been using since the early 80’s.

It just means a chump playing himself for pussy.

[–]69swagman1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

SIMP: can be used as a verb or a noun, it is an acronym that stands for:

Suckers Idolizing Mediocre Pussy

[–]wyota1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

You mean *14-23 because younger Zoomers are online at least as much as older ones

[–]rprookie0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy


[–]onereadyboi0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It blew up on tiktok a few months ago and now it's becoming a mainstream term.

[–]empatheticapathetic0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Simps are reversing the meaning of the word now where they might have previously used incel.

[–]shitpostlord43210 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Same I was reading some YouTube comments in a Doom video and in one thread it had a bunch of people calling a specific dude a simp. It’s basically the new cringe, wholesome, etc. One person sees the word and then a bunch of other people follow like sheep spamming the word every chance they get.

[–]Jacked5parrow0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It seems as RP influence in bleeding into mainstream conversations...but not really in a good way. It’s literally all just shit talk.

[–]doesntpostnuttin0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

From what I’ve seen a lot of the just chatting community on twitch was preaching about simping and being beta, calling each other out etc. This could be a reason why so many people have started using the lingo.

[–]Unboundaries0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

It got said on some social media app and now it's mainstream. If this discourages the simp treatment women get for simply being women and nothing more, I can't complain. It should be called out for what it is.

[–]volvostupidshit0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

If you are a high value man then you won't care. Otherwise, this is good for men out there that are in the bottom barrel.

[–]Kronosfkg0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Basically an extension of the King memes

[–]Sintar070 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

To most if them it's just a cool new insult that hasn't been around long enough to be cliche yet, so people drop it constantly. Kind of like when the left discovered the word "incel."

[–]cuteman0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yet another fad picked up and consumed by those who are young and impressionable.

[–]opper-hombre10 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

No simp 2020

No simp for life

[–]DANTE214FIRE0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I have the same question

[–]rprookie0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It’s not only the 18-23* crowd it’s also 15-23.

I’m 17 it’s not only your generation.

I see this as a wake up call.

[–]LeatherBoundWisdom0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Redpill is slowly becoming mainstream. I'm in college and you don't know how many guys I've met who have been exposed to it if not redpill themselves.

[–]mikkeldaman-1 points0 points  (2 children) | Copy

It's a meme and it will be gone within a year or so (kind of like how no one uses anymore "me gusta" or trollface except in really underground circles). Just because people know the lingo doesn't mean they know the concept. Just look at how popular this sub has become for "simp" questions and advice as well, despite everyone claiming they spin numerous plate and that they don't care about a girl about which they just wrote a post.

[–]smhfamswag-1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy

Simp isn’t a meme you bozo it’s slang black people been using for decades and it ain’t going nowhere as long as these beta males keep pandering to these hoes.

[–]mikkeldaman0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

For the general public it will go, bozo.

[–]W_O_M_B_A_T-3 points-2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Found the simp.

Heh heh heh.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
