In general, simp is not a very nice thing to say, because it has evolved past its original definition, and is now a misogynistic term aimed at the men who value women, as. MEL Magazine pointed out.
If someone is calling you a simp for being nice to a woman, simply ignore them. Being nice to others and valuing other people, women or not, is the single best thing you can do. It is true, however, that most teenagers use the term as a joke, mostly on TikTok, without really willing to use this definition. But just be aware. Don’t use it in misogynistic way. Be nice to everyone. On top of MELs story, you can read about NYT’s take on the term Simp.
