What does ARS mean?

Ars
Ars, or Arsim is a derogatory Hebrew slang term for the Israeli stereotype of a low-class young man. The stereotype may also refer to attributes such as flashy jewelry and clothing. A woman fitting this stereotype is an Arsit, the word formed by adding the Hebrew feminine ending "it" to the Arabic word "Ars". Other term used for women is Freha, originally a female Moroccan first name popular in the 1950s and the 1960s, during the large immigration wave from Morocco to Israel. The Ars subculture traditionally was associated with young Jews of Moroccan, Yemeni, and Iranian origin, but in recent years has expanded to a broader range of ethnicities. The term is often considered offensive and racist towards Mizrahi youth, and is usually considered pejorative when said in person. Some criticize the term for stereotyping Mizrahi youth culture and for being inaccurate. In Arabic the word ars has several meanings: ⁕A pimp in general ⁕A cuckold, a man whose wife is unfaithful to him ⁕A man who pimps his wife ⁕A wicked or contemptible person, a "bad guy" ⁕A bastard, an illegitimate child
