    Post This later became 'frigid tart'

    From Ulrika Jonsson: I hate my huge breasts. They have to go | Mail Online

    No doubt these were early signs of short-man-syndrome, as he took out his frustration on me by labelling me 'frigid'. This later became 'frigid tart' which, I was wise enough to spot, was a contradiction in terms, and to that end he went down in my estimation as a bully.
    It is little wonder, then, that paranoia about my body, nay, my breasts, set in early on. This was compounded by the fact that Tracy Salter grew a fine pair and Sally Smith appeared to have got my share.

    What do the words in bold mean?

    A tart is a promiscuous woman and frigid means sexually unresponsive and emotionally cold.
    Little wonder = no surprise
