A “loser”, according to Mr. Oxford, is a person or thing that loses or has lost something, esp. a game or a contest. However, the word “loser” isn’t always used in that context. Usually, appointing someone the title of Loser indicates lack of social status and assumes (and/or expects) of them the consistency of failure—failure at life. The term loser is closely associated with losing to someone or failure to succeed at something. In a game, someone who does not win is not the winner, and is therefore, automatically the loser. A loser at school takes on the role of an individual with no or a scarce number of friends though may have many academic accomplishments and may be viewed as someone who has “no life.” A loser in society is defined as one who is never or seldom been successful at a job, personal relationship, etcetera—someone who generally “sucks at life.” What type of term is a loser and how is it used? It is a term used to degrade or describe the degraded, and at most times degrades those who use it. But who is a loser? A loser, in the eyes of the victims of public opinion, is a person who may have all of the above traits; a real loser is a mindless human specimen holding an identity illustrating everything but a loser, but assigns the term, labelling others, as if it would in some way upgrade themselves. They (who they have been taught by some kind of idiocy or trickery of another alike their kind) ridicule those who fall under the falsely defined definition of a “loser.” But the most essential lot that makes one an authentic loser is the failure to recognize themselves as one—the lack of perception as they are faced to faced to their loss of and detachment from their own self-worth.
