Why I’m A Feminist
omg I’m sorry to ruin this post or whatever but calling someone a pussy has nothing to do with the female anatomy lmao. it comes from the word, pusillanimous which means lack of courage.
In actuality you just completely made our point. Why is a word that means lack of courage compared to a parts of a women? Because people believe that women are less.
For the same reason cats are called pussies. In the 19th century people used the word pussy to describe things that were soft and furry. Quit being offended by everything. Seriously, not everything is about man’s evil plot to enslave the female gender…
I didn’t say that. But the real question is why do men believe being compared to a women is offensive?
For the same reason I don’t want to be called a man, because I’m not one. If someone says you have man hands you take it as an insult. Does that mean you think a man’s hands are inferior?
However, they are not saying the other person looks like a women. They are saying the other person has the character of a women, and I don’t see how that’s should be an insult at all.
Who said they have the characteristics of a woman? You did. They called someone a pussy (aka soft). You’re the only one saying that it’s also related to being a woman. I’m not trying to be rude here, but you’re being more misogynistic than anyone. I don’t equate a guy being called a pussy to my womanhood. You’re telling me I need to.
I’m telling you that’s what guys see a pussy as.
And you know this how? Your extensive time spent inside the male mind?
Pussy is a slang term for a vagina or a woman
The people who use the term pussy as an insult do not know the actual meaning that you stated
They think it means a vagina or a woman
It does not matter what it really means if people don’t bloody know that!
Pussy is slang for soft. It’s used for cats (because they are soft). It’s used for vaginas (because they are soft). And it’s used as an insult for anyone (I’ve been called a pussy plenty of times in my life and I’m a woman) to call them soft, or weak.
The argument you’re essentially is making is that by saying a house is big, and saying a dog is big, I am saying a dog is a house. That’s not logical at all.
