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.
The reason no one else knows this is because it’s not true.
It’s fine to call someone or something pusillanimous if they’re acting timid or cowardly, but there’s no etymological connection between the words pusillanimous and pussy*. It’s a false cognate.
* I apologize for the terrible font on that web page.
