An overly PC person at work today told us that we shouldn;t use the word “flip” anymore because it’s a slur against those from the Phillipines.
I went to the internet to see if there was any proof to this.
All I could find was one site saying it’s a shortened version of Phillipines used by neighboring islanders (which sounds plausabile). Another site claimed it stood for Funny Little Island People, which to mee sounds too much like a CABAL, For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge or POSH rumor to me.
So what’s the real story. Is this a term I am not aware of or is this some sort of misunderstanding?
