  •  What is the derivation? (none)
    Is there any proof at all that using pussy against a man derived from the slang use of it for a female body part? I mean, we also know pussy can refer to cat. As in pussycat. And I have seen many times men thought to be wimpy and/or pushovers referred to as pussycats. As in, "he's a real pushover, a real pussycat..." And its usually used in contrast to dog. Such as a man thought aggressive is a "bulldog" or has "dogged determination".

    Is everyone just assuming calling a man a pussy evolved from one definition of the word and not the other? Is there any proof it didn't evolve from calling pushover men pussycats? Is everyone just seeing insults where none is intended and where they want to? Why isn't dick the same thing? No one has given a sensible answer on that one.
