1. dishonorable person: a person who thinks excellence is of higher priority than honor, which is opposed to what Prof. Winnie Monsod advocates. This connotes stealing other's work, for instance, which is an immoral (dishonorable) act, is allowable as long as it bring about excellence, be it superficial, to the thief.
2. academic thief: a person who constantly steals another person's intellectual work, but is persistently vocal against theft. In addition, the person may have a tendency to call other people user (exploiter), even though they may not be, to emphasize his dislike for stealing other persons' intellectual work.
3. revolting person with an equally revolting partner: a highly dislikable person, when it comes to both looks and atitude, who has an equally repulsive boyfriend/ girlfriend who looks like a pre-evolved human (i.e., looks like the missing link between humans and other primates)
origin: a portmanteau of the Filipino words "bakla" (a homosexual male) and "shokoy" (an ugly mythical underwater creature fromthe Philippines)
Disclaimer: Part of the origin of the word being defined is "bakla", the Filipino word for gay man, but in NO WAY does this suggest that any gay person is necessarily a bakoy. The pronoun "he" is consistenly used in the definitions, but the word can equally be used to a person of any sexual preference.
(Setting: Today is the deadline for submission of assignments. There are no classes today so the math professor requires the students to submit their work by inserting it under the door of their professor's room. Two friends see from afar someone, a classmate, trying to slide a spoon under their professor's door to steal his classmates' works.)
A: He's stealing our work!
B: Oh shit! Do you know him?
A: Not really. But as far as I remember, I was assigned to check his assignment once and his answers are much worse than any sophomore math student could ever commit. My god... I can't believe someone could go that low, stealing other people's work. What an abysmal creature! Revolting! And he has the guts to call me a user when I asked one of our classmates how to solve some of the questions in our assignment! The nerves! By the way, have you seen his boyfriend?
B: Yeah. He's the missing link to humans and other primates. He seriously looks like a monkey from the zoo. And I don't like him either. His attitude stinks. He's always competitive and always annoying. I now think his boyfriend doesn't love him. His boyfriend is just using him. Since no one loves them both, they only have each other. No choice. I guess it's a match made in hell. They're a perfect match, aren't they? They are both bakoys!
A: Bloody bakoys.
