Why I Now Use Failipino/FLIPFAG Instead of Pinoy for Bad Filipinos
Better yet know as Failipno or FLIPFAG pride...
In the past, I have been using Pinoy as a term as the Get Real Philippines website defines the Pinoy as the bad Filipino. In Get Real Philippines, they call the Pinoy as the bad citizen of the Philippines who is lazy and inconsiderate. However the term Pinoy like the term Negro or Intsik can used neutrally. The word "Pinoy" is a demonym which is a term for the residents of the locality.
Using the word "Pinoy" in a derogatory manner can lead to offensiveness not just to butthurt bad Pinoys but also to good Pinoys. A good Pinoy may not react like a bad one, however he or she may say, "Sir/ma'am not all Pinoys are bad just like not all Americans are bad." Pinoy can just be used neutrally like how sometimes, the word Filipino or Chinese can be classified as a good one or a bad one. Sometimes, Pinoy can refer to "ethnic Filipinos" in general or Filipinos are descended from the natives of the Philippines, who by the way are also composed of Malaysian and Indonesian settlers plus 400 years of Spanish rule may have added Spanish blood.
Now what about the term Failipino or FLIPFAG? Just as the term "Murican" can be used to be a word to mean "Bad American", the term Failipino is always a derogatory word for note, bad Filipinos who can be classified as oversensitive, ethnocentric, not willing for change for the better or that he or she is not which leads to the failure of the nation hence the term FAILipino which is different from Filipino, which can be a neutral word to to simply refer to a "citizen of the Philippines" or "Pinoy" as those who are supposedly Filipino by blood. In short, the word Failipino is NEVER a positive word like the words evil, malevolent, maleficent, malicious, perverse, etc. the word Failipino will always be a derogatory word.
FLIPFAG stands for Failipinos Loving Ignorance/Incompetence Purposely (or as I add Perpetually) For All Generations. That is they think incompetence and ignorance are knowledge and competence, they think that all their wrong practices like not following simple guidelines, being always late, fiesta mentality, praning culture, etc. makes life worth living in the Philippines. The view themselves to be the greatest hence they consider every valid criticism as an act of insult and put-downs, even when the critic just wants to help.
Again, when you want to call a bad Filipino a more stinging name, call him or her a Failipino or a FLIPFAG.
