The Brief: No Simp September is a month-long period challenging people to refrain from simping.


No Simp September is an ironic event challenging people to abstain from simping for the month of September. Information about this informal holiday is spread online via memes and jokes. The premise is similar to that of No Nut November. A subreddit called “Stop Simping September” has over 860 members.

Urban Dictionary defines No Simp September as “A challenge where you aren’t allowed to simp for any being om this earth including fictional characters for the whole September [sic].”

This event is the opposite of Simptember, which encourages people to simp during the month.
