why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.
also not correct. Pussy just comes from cats. It evolved form being a term of endearment for girls to being used on men who were considered tame and domestic (like cats…or girls). It evolved some more to mean cowardly. The ‘pus’ in pusillanimous is even pronounced differently (like pew not puh).
