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.
from the fucking etymology section of the wikipedia article
"The medieval French word pucelle referred to a young adolescent girl or a virgin, although this derives from the Latin puella, rather than referring to cats (but cf. French chatte(female cat), a current vulgarism for the female genitalia). In the 17th century, the term was also used to refer to women in general.
It has been informally suggested in folk etymology that it is a shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which comes from Latin words meaning “tiny spirit” and is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as “showing a lack of courage or determination” or cowardly. Though this meaning would seem to be consistent with the intention of the word “pussy” when used as an insult toward a man, it is a false cognate unrelated to the Germanic derivations of puss and pussy.”
