A word whose existence i am in complete disagreement with.
General definition: someone who will do anything for someone, usually their bf/gf.
I do not understand how this would translate into being “whipped”. Nice, maybe. Extremely selfless and giving, probably. It seems entirely unfair that someone who gives so whole-heartedly would be pinned with such an unfavorable title.
It’s possible that those who label others as whipped are in fact jealous that some people in this world are so giving it makes them look bad. So, to retaliate, they make that person look bad.
Seriously, how is it anyone’s business to say if someone is whipped or not? How often are we clear about the person’s intention? Maybe if the guy didn’t want to do something, but does it just b/c the gf wants him to can be called whipped, but the fact that he chose to do it shows that ultimately, he’d rather do it than not do it. This choice of action would lead one to think that it is because he would derive more happiness doing what would make the gf happy than doing what just makes himself happy. So what’s the big deal?
Just a theory.
Although most commonly associated with bf/gf, ther term “whipped” is not restricted to this relationship. So was Mother Teresa “whipped”? Was Jesus “whipped”? Was the Buddha “whipped”? They would do so much for the world… for people they didn’t even know, but their actions are looked upon as saintly and not “whipped”.
True, there are times when it seems obvious that a person is not exercising much rationality when they abide by another’s request. Ex. if i ask my bf to bring me soup when he’s at work. If he did leave, risking his job, just to bring me soup, does that mean he’s whipped? No. I think that just means he’s dumb. Maybe it’s just a war over words, but i think there’s more to it. Whipped implies that there’s something negative about someone being willing to do anything for someone. Dumb just means that they failed to exercise reason.
Am i just deluding myself?
Bottom line – Just because someone is willing to be nicer than you are doesn’t make them wrong.
