    Default What is the meaning of "Pussy" in this case?

    Hi Everybody,

    I got this conversation from American TV programme...."Hey! Man....I am not a pussy." I want to know the meaning of "pussy" in this case. Thanks.

    Probably we'd need more context, maybe he's stating that he's a tough man not a weak one...I don't like this word though

    It means a weak or a feminine guy. Possibly cowardly.
    PS: as for the double (triple?) entendre: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIfcKy-VcXo
