The term simp is used to describe a male who is kind-hearted toward women. It is short for "sucka idolizing mediocre pussy". The term came into prominence in the post-3rd wave feminist period as increasingly, men took on the mantle of being feminist in the hope of possible getting into the good books of women, ostensibly in order to get laid. Due to the overlap with self-debasing, simping eventually increasingly became a derogatory term.
Many in the manosphere believe simping spoils the women by increasing their courtship expectations, reaffirming the solipsism and thereby inflating the price of sex on the sexual market (for men that is, of course) and rendering women socially unsustainable.
Theory[edit | edit source]
Theoretically, simping shouldn't be derogatory as being nice to women, since at face value, being altruistic and empathetic are inherently positive virtues. Altruism and having empathy fall in line with the central creed of all the major religions, which is one that encourages following the Golden Rule; do unto others as you would wish upon yourself. However, women have brought it upon themselves that being nice to them is now seen as lowly. Take the term nice guy for instance; a bluepilled outlook would suggest that a nice guy procures all the benefits of being an upstanding member of society. However, a more realistic take shows us that female instinct ensures these males fail at one of the most important goals in life, that is procreation, due to their inherent scelerophilia and hybristophilia, which manifests itself in women at different levels of intensity.
Backlash[edit | edit source]
Women, especially those with feminist sympathies increasingly resorted to a backlash in light of the increasing usage of the term simping. These women believe that exhibiting a respectful, kind, and loving posture towards the fair sex shouldn't induce ridicule. However, this backlash is never going to hold any weight as the nice guys finish last or good-hearted guys finish last trope is a real-life phenomenon entirely begotten, fostered and effectuated through the attitudes of the female sex.
Simps are happier[edit | edit source]
Research indicates that men who believe in simping have a higher subjective wellbeing. This suggests the pathologization of simping in the manosphere is primarily a response to the perverse exaggeration of the women-are-wonderful effect in modern times, combined with the rise male sexual frustration spoiling the females, rather than simping (or investing into the female) being unnatural or harmful in itself. Since women have been dependent on men's resources throughout human history, it should be expected that men also have evolved to derive pleasure from investing into the female as ensuring the survival of the mother and enabling her parental investment is heavily conductive to men's reproductive success, especially among k-strategists.
