Definition of the noun Spide
What does Spide mean as a name of something?
- [context: Northern Irish English, pejorative] a chav or smick.
Spide: A spide is a pejorative stereotype in Northern Ireland, particularly in Belfast, used to refer to young, working class thuggish males. The female version of a spide is a "millie", a term that is decades old and formerly referred to girls who worked in the Belfast mills. Essentially the equivalent to the English "chav", many negative perceptions are associated with the stereotype. These include allegations that they engage in anti-social behaviour including drug dealing, car theft, joyriding, and loitering in public places in large groups, usually drinking alcohol and causing commotion. They are also seen as boy racers that drive inconsiderately in "souped-up" 1990s era hot hatches and sedans, particularly Vauxhalls and Hondas. Many are unemployed and live off benefits. In terms of dress code, they are perceived as having high and tight haircuts and being clad in jewellery and sportswear, usually baseball caps, Berghaus and Helly Hansen jackets, tracksuits and Nike Air Max trainers.
