Pussy = scaredy cat
That's the usage when I was growing up, and I still "hear" that meaning when the word is used. :shrug: I know today that it has another, sexual meaning, but Taibbi was clearly using it to call the baggers cowards. I agree with that usage.


1. Could imply Vagina"
2. Could imply "Cat"
3. Could imply "coward"

Note: when referring to someone as a "pussy" cowardly meaning is derived from def.2 as in "scaredy cat". Calling someone a "Vagina" does not make sense. Calling someone a "scaredy cat" does. Common miscommunication that results in A LOT of angered women.

1. I went to a strip club, for my 18th birthday, and could see her entire pussy; best birthday yet.

2. The pussy cat was chased up a tree by a dog

3. Your parent's won't let you go to the party? Oh come on man quit, being a pussy, and sneak out anyways.

1. I agree, pussy could easily refer to acting scared/cowardly
Cats are often very timid - and they scare and scatter easily.
Hence the term "Scaredy Cat".

Given the popular usage of the term "Pussy Cat"...
Using "pussy" as a pejorative could very easily be insulting someone for being cowardly.
