My bitchy subconscious gets to shut up about how I can't pull off cosplaying the Marvel movie Frigga.

Look, "pussy" used to mean "small, furry, soft, strokable thing," often rabbit, as well as cat. In Appalachian regions in my early life, it still meant "soft" in the sense of "lazy." I rather think that calling a man "soft" as an insult did not start out as comparing him to a fuckhole. I think it meant calling him lazy, unmuscled, and unthreatening, like a cat, rabbit, or willow bud (although, seriously? If "unthreatening" is an insult where you are, think about moving). I think the two meanings re-converged and took on the misogynistic overtones later.

That makes it worse, not better.
