A male who will do anything (even if it involves making himself look like a complete idiot) in order to please a female. Examples of this include spending large sums of money on the female’s birthday, Christmas or dinner (even if he can’t afford it), dissing friends because he wants to spend more time with the female or reprioritizing of the female over family, friends, food, water and air. In short, the male world blindly revolves around the female. The literal translation is “girl clown”.
