to tell the difference between shooting stars and satellites
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.
OK hold up that is literally a false cognate and the idea of it being weakness does have a slightly separate etymology but the general rule of thumb of the western episteme is that a word holds cultural currency for known definition, not syntactic origin, so whatever it may have sprung from, white boys aren’t calling each other pusillanimous cads.
