Cedric doesn't have the word sissified, but Pomeroy does...wow.
There is another one though, I believe it's a bit more common and known than those listed. And really "completely sissified" for Sisyphus? I can understand if they mentioned that the nn of Sissy can be used, but really? Sissified shouldn't be used to describe any names, imo.
I'm going to start another thread, so we don't over take this one.
@augusta is correct-- I should not have borrowed her word 'oppressed.' It was sloppy. It implies historical reality rather than the social prejudices I was attempting to discuss. I borrowed in an attempt to illustrate a fallacy but in doing so went down a totally false road. She was right to call bullshit on it.
There was also this fine blog post:
East93, Cedric is mentioned as being "sissified" within the first paragraph of the description. I missed it too, on my first read-through.
Someone should make a thread about which 'girl names' it'd be interesting (if highly unlikely) to give to/see on boys...
I absolutely love this thread. :)
