20 Responses to ‘Go Off Sis’

Hello, sisters in the building! We have combated the woes of being feminine in modern society and the war is still ongoing. With the rise of feminists and civilization, women happen to be winning. However, like racism, gender discrimination is nigh impossible to entirely rid off.

 To fight for the rights of women, we have seen powerful feminists stand fiercely before authorities and ‘go off’. You may have heard the phrase ‘Go off’ or ‘Pop off’ before. Some would say ‘Go off, Sis’ or ‘Go off, Queen’ and you wonder how to respond to it.

Your response depends on what the speaker means and how you feel about it. We will explore the possible meanings of this phrase to women and how you can respond.

Meaning of “Go off Sis”

‘Go off’ (or ‘Pop off’) is an English phrase that implies expressing oneself freely or uncontrollably. It can be used in several ways and may even be used as an insult. When a person goes off, he or she may be;

  • Criticizing something fiercely
  • Ranting angrily about another person.
  • Getting serious or intense with an activity

When you hear ‘Go off, Sis’, it is important to realize that one doesn’t need to be told when to get angry or serious. However, saying this phrase is usually used as an encouragement so it is not always negative, just as it is not always positive. Below are possible meanings when a person tells you to go off;

  • Your criticism is supported
  • Your effort is supported
  • You are making a fool of yourself
  • You should get angry.

Your criticism is supported

 A person can say ‘Go off, Sis’ to a feminist while she is ranting about the authorities. Your response to this will depend on how you feel about the statement. While it could be a show of support, it could also be a sarcastic way of telling you to keep wasting your time.

Your effort is supported.

This does not necessarily have to do with feminists and may not have to do with speech either. The person being referred to may be participating in a competition.

It could be a debate. It could be a race or something else that requires efforts. Chanting ‘Go off, Queen’ or ‘Go off, Sis’ will serve as an encouragement to the player.

You are making a fool of yourself.

 In the middle of an argument, a person can bring up a finalizing point that shows you have been arguing wrongly the whole time. Saying ‘Go off’ is a sarcastic way of telling you to keep ranting about the wrong idea and making a fool of yourself.

 It’s probably hard to find a good response in this case. It would be very embarrassing.

You should get angry.

Telling you to go off may just be a person trying to make you get angry. This could come amid an argument. If the person feels you are getting pissed already, he or she can just make you angrier so you can mess things up.

No, I won’t.

I like feminists. They know the difference between the bully and the bullied. Two people of equal rights get in an argument and one reacts weakly while one takes the upper hand. One teases while the other takes the bait and reacts as expected.

One of the ways to stop a bully is to not react as he or she would expect you to. When a person tells you to ‘go off’ in the middle of an argument, you should know you appear to be losing your cool. Correct your facial expression and smile. You can’t go off unnecessarily, especially when it’s all they believe you can do.
