On the other hand most Filipinos think that to be called "PINÓY" is fun, pride, is a cool way to call themselves because the word originated from the U.S.A and has the notion that anything from the U.S.A. is a good thing and is hip. But they do not know, of course, that the monicker "PINÓY" is a coinage, made in the USA, fromparts of two words: PIN from "PhilipPINe" and OY from "unggÓY" meaning "monkey", "chimp" or "simean".
Thus, the literal meaning of the name PINÓY is a "monkey from the Philippines" PINÓY is also an offshoot of the American lyrics for the tune of "No te Vayas a Zamboanga" which goes" "For monkeys have no tails in far Zamboanga".. .. popularly sang during the American invasion and occupation of Las Islas Filipinas.
This vile minority of Filipinos, which is demonstrably ignorant, if not stupid and corrupt from the start and to the core, is the only one who in fractured English denies that the Filipino is Hispanic.
Meaning: That monkey needs to go back to their jungle.
Most Filipinos or Pinoys are christians largely dominated by ROMAN CATHOLIC religion approx. 87% of population. Some 10% percent Protestants...and some muslims in the south.
Stranger 2: No I am not!!!
Pinoys&pinays: "Fuck yes!!"
-Pinoy is a term of endearment and is rarely used in formal settings. The term is akin to that of a nickname which is used by close family members and friends so that one who uses it somehow already developed some close ties with Filipinos.
-The term especially gained popular currency in the late 1970s in the Philippines when a surge in patriotism made a hit song of Filipino folksinger Heber Bartolome's "Tayo'y mga Pinoy" (We are Filipinos), and later with famous Filipino band Bamboo's "Noy-pi" (Pinoy in reversed syllables).
-In addition to Pinoy, Filipinos also refer themselves as Filipinos and Filipinas, Filipinos for the male gender (masculine), and Filipinas for the female gender (feminine).
