usage note for JAP
JAP is a term of mild contempt, used (most often by Jewish people themselves) to refer to a young Jewish female who is spoiled or indulged. In its reference to a certain stereotype, the word has anti-Semitic and sexist overtones. However, it has been reclaimed by some Jewish females as a positive term of self-reference.
