A term of abuse and hatred used in high school against someone who never heard the term Anglo-Saxon, hardly ever went to church, and of course, is white. Which Protestant Church to go to is not clear.

The same person might not be invited to a 'coming out' ball for being a Jew, which they never heard of before, either, and then get two invitations a both a stolen a all the attendees at the paaty a appose a be hoes.
"You're a W.A.S.P.!!"

"A what?"

"A wasp!"

"What's that?"

The teacher assigns you to write a research paper in literature on: "The Lost Cause Of The South" and you write an excellent paper and you can see that the grade is an 'A', but she hands it "back" to another girl and the other girl gets a prize from DuPont at graduation because she is supposedly so smart.

Evil scary yellow and black stripey insect that flies around stinging people and has a nasty little face like Darth Vader, not to be confused with the humble bumble bee who is just a little flying teddy bear that makes jam and gets shit-faced on pollen.
I'm not going out, I can see a wasp out there, it will kill us all.

1) stands for White Anglo-Saxon Protestant.
2) people who usually come from privileged background, typically in the New England area
3) abbreviation for Williams, Amherst, Swarthmore, and Pomona (the top four Liberal Arts Colleges in the nation. Strangely, those colleges are full of WASPs themselves)
1) If John Kerry were Protestant, he would be a WASP.
2) George W. Bush is a WASP
3) Dukkakis went to a WASP college

Everyone who is a PREP and embraces it. For everybody who spends the final weeks of the year tossing the disc or playing lacrosse on the circle of their boarding school, wearing the spring colors from Polo, Lacoste, and Lilly Pulitzer. You tretch through the northeast snow with help from your LL Bean boots and stay warm with their slippers, and yes, the JCrew people do know you by name. You play at least two raquet sports, bonus points for paddle and raquet ball and tend to vacation on the shore, ACK, or Martha's Vineyard. If you pop your pastel polo collars, wear aviators, ribbon belts, and own Nantucket Reds, then this is the group for you. For every girl who wants to get a guy with hockey hair and to the guys who have to keep their blazers on because hey, thats the classy thing to do.you define old money by owning a yacht and a summer house and belong to at least two country clubs.
Most WASPS end up at boarding schools...

White Anglo-Saxon Protestant

Descendants of colonial-era immigrants from the British Isles--especially England, but also from Wales and Scotland (irrespective of the fact that Scots and Welsh people are predominantly descended from Celts, not descendants of Angles and Saxons)--who belonged to the Presbyterian, Congregationalist, and Episcopalian (Anglican) denominations of Protestantism.

The term is redundant because all Anglo-Saxons are white.
To this day in America, the W.A.S.P.s are the one group about which--in a politically correct atmosphere--jokes can be made with impunity.

1) A White Anglo-Saxon Protestant - a person of English descent who follows one of the branches of Protestanism, typically Anglicanism (Church of England); Anglo-Saxon is not be mixed up with just Caucasian, Anglo-Saxon refers to the Germanic invaders who conquered England shortly after the Romans fell from power, thus it refers to strictly to English people and their descendants.
