CYNICK: a failed idealistic female person who has rented the belief that man is motivated chiefly by base or selfish concerns. Her borrowed/learned beliefs dictate that men are mostly dogs who use the excuse of their “dog’s life” to justify their doggie behavior towards their bitches. She didn’t invent virtue (manly courage, integrity of character; purity of soul; performance of duty) as the only good, men did; but she does believe that the essence of virtue is self-control of doggie behavior letting loose with abandonment only when she wants it.
CYNICK comes from the words:
CYNIC: a person who has an overall negative outlook on life, and believes that all people are motivated by selfishness. A cynic thinks that this is a dog's life. “The Greek word kunikos, from which cynic comes, was originally an adjective meaning “doglike,” from kun, “dog.” The word was probably applied to the Cynic philosophers because of the nickname kun given to Diogenes of Sinope, the prototypical Cynic. He is reported to have been seen barking in public, urinating on the leg of a table, and masturbating on the street. The first use of the word recorded in English, in a work published from 1547 to 1564, is in the plural for members of this philosophical sect. In 1596 we find the first instance of cynic meaning “faultfinder,” a sense that was to develop into our modern sense. The meaning “faultfinder” came naturally from the behavior of countless Cynics who in their pursuit of virtue pointed out the flaws in others. Such faultfinding could lead quite naturally to the belief associated with cynics of today that selfishness determines human behavior.”
