Sand nigger suicide bombers, who hope that when they die the will receive 72 virgins, the only catch is, the 72 virgins look like Rosie O' Donnell, suckers.

A martyr is a person who dies fighting for what they believe in. A martyr can either kill themselves or be killed.

In the 19th Century, a woman in England named Emily Davison (A member of the suffragette party) becamame a matryr after killing herself by jumping infront of horses at the "Epson Derby".

Martyrs gain a lot of sympathy by the public for preforming such an act which is one of the main contributing factors as to why they do it in the first place.

Martin Luther King is a martyr as he died defending black peoples rights

Most of these definitions are wrong or half right, there are two types of Martyrs:

1.) One who puts themselves in harms way so that someone else doesn't have to. One who would die fighting for a cause.

2.) An attention whore who puts themselves in harms way and/or complains about it expecting others to feel thankful or sorry for them. For Glory.
1.) Although Rambo is a fictional character, he is the ultimate example of a Martyr.

Although the Spartans wanted glory, they did what they did anyway glory or no glory, they aren't really attention whores.

1. Eli always volunteers to work late and then complains about it. He is such a martyr.

Fomerly known as your Wingman or Taking one for the team. A guy that sacrifices himself by removing the we gotta go girl or the ugly chick from the gaggle of women that you are attempting to take home. Since women know what Wingman means, this is the deceptive term to get their guard down.
Lets go over and talk to those girls at the bar. Dan, you are going to be a martyr tonight, the butter face is all yours.
