    My whole life I have heard someone say that a man is whipped.  However, I don't know if everyone has the same belief in what makes a man "whipped".  It's like there is no in between.  He is either a jerk or "whipped".  What do ya'll think?

        Haha! I am married.  I have been married for a whole month. lol!  This was just something that came to mind.  One of those random thoughts.  It's like if you are nice, then you are whipped.  It's not about me though, it's about someone I can not name incase they read this. haha!  He is basically told what to do.  Just wanted to know what everyone thought.

      A man is whipped when he no longer stands up for what he believes is right. A man is whipped when he sacrifices his values because he lacks courage.

      A man is not whipped because he cries, compromises, loves, takes care of, acts responsibly, or behaves in a gentlemanly fashion.

      A man is a jerk when he lies, cheats, beats, shows off in a troubling way, or disregards the feelings of others.

      Exception: you can disregard the feelings of others if you are not a jerk but the other person is.

      Rule of Thumb: If someone says something unkind about you, live your life in such a way that no one will believe them.

      Food for Thought: I don't believe the qualities of gentleman ever really change. A gentleman is foremost a creature of honor, then of civility and grace. He is not hard to identify because he treats all other men as gentlemen and all women as ladies.

      More Food for Thought: However dull a woman may be, she will understand all there is about love. However wise a man may be he will only know but half.

        True story and well put, couturepopcafe. Though I would like to add one small bit to the whipped category. A man (or woman) is whipped when they allow the negative things others think about them rule their behavior.

    You'll find out soon enough. smile

    Married guys usually are whipped. Like you say, they do as they're told; they're on a leash; they give in. It's like the old saying which applies to arguing with one's spouse: "You can be right and unhappy, or you can be wrong and happy."

    Or something like that. And more importantly, still get some every now and again.

      Who would want a husband like that? If I wanted that I'd get a dog.

    It depends on what leather she is wearing and what kind of whip! smile

    I agree with couture. I don't think a guy is whipped if he respects the woman he is with and does nice things for her, but if he sacrifices his values because he lacks courage, then he's whipped. I hate that word. Guys say that to other guys with girlfriends to bust their balls then if they are insecure they start acting up.

      Yeah, pretty much.  I see it happen all to much.  Gotta be a "man" right?  The definition of man has been jacked as well.  And they do start acting up, in an attempt to "prove" they are not whipped.  Hate the word myself.

    A wife or woman who doesn't respect him and a lack of respect for himself.

    Whipped basically means the submissive one in the relationship. I believe this refers to people who do not call the shots or make decisions for themselves and are taken advantage of in any way.

    Many men become whipped because their lives are not actually about anything. If your life isn't about something, it will wind up being about women. You will dress to impress women, take on jobs that you think women will like, etc.

    Then when he gets the girl, and is basically guaranteed sex indefinitely, his subconscious says "well, my work is done" and it's time to rest. Many men will then just do the minimum work to keep the girl satisfied. Their girl becomes their whole world. It's revolting. And girls hate it.

    Often the girl will then naturally start seeking out new guys who are more driven, more passionate, have more of a direction in life, and the cycle begins anew.
