Historically an acronym for White Anglo-Saxon Protestant, but used traditionally and frequently to mean White Affluent Schooled Person(s), regardless of a precise national origin or specific christian denomination or religion. Especially relevant in references to persons or families with old money ties in positions of certain power, notably those residing in certain pockets on the East Coast.

Commonly used with an inherently negative connotation by non-WASPS.

The term is often associated and used interchangeably in reference to the perceived subculture of "Prep", "Preppy", "Prepdom" because of historical and unmistakable ties.

The acronym "wasp" has not become commercialized as greatly as the perceived "prep" lifestyle through clothing companies which try to sell this lifestyle to the aspiring common populace who strive to overcome the reality of exclusivity.

"White Anglo Saxon Protestant". The most common place for W.A.S.P.s would be New England. Smart, witty, posh, classy, old money, top of the social chain, good looking, country club members, nonchalant, old school, boat owners, capable of outdoing anyone on anything, original prep (none of this new popped-collar, tacky pearls, and ribbons), boat shoes, Polo's, Lacoste, scandelous in private, small stature.
There are two types of people who go to country clubs:
People who let you know that they attend a country club, and those who you had no idea because they don't go about telling everyone. We call those people w.a.s.p.s.

"Wow, you should be in a porno."
"No, I can't do that."
"Why not?"
"Because I'm a w.a.s.p."
