Top definition
(adj.) having the demeanor of a stereotypical (American) White, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant (abbrev WASP).

The stereotype of WASPs is that they have high social status and a disproportionate amount of political power.


A white guy of English and Protestant background who was raised in a $15-million mansion in a place like Darien, Connecticut, or Atherton, California, and whose father was a senator and grandfather a governor; whose family has lived in the States for 30 generations; and whose entire family attended Ivy-League or Ivy-League-caliber universities. This guy is a quintessential WASP.

Someone who is WASPy is someone who comes across as this sort of person.

One need not be a WASP in order to be WASPy. A WASP refers to any American who is white and of English and Protestant heritage, so even a poor, degenerate meth head in Appalachia could be a WASP. Rather, someone who is WASPy is simply someone who seems to fit the WASP stereotype.

For example:
Many Americans would consider the Kennedys WASPy even though their religious background alone precludes them from the designation of WASPs, as the Kennedys are Catholic.
-Dude, the best part of trivia night last Thursday was when that really WASPy guy named all the Ivy League schools in like two seconds.
-I know. I feel like such a lowlife. I'd never even heard of Dartmouth before, and I thought the University of Pennsylvania was a public school.
