There’s been some tension amongst our small team of bloggers about the word ‘sissy’. As many of my readers know…I just can’t get comfortable with it.

That’s why, every few weeks, I tend to have a minor ding-dong with Elle about her constant and unrelenting use of the word. This finally blew up in a testy e-mail exchange and that’s when she challenged me to find a synonym or replacement for the word, ‘sissy.’

I thought I’d share my results with you.

1. Syster

I love the word ‘sister’ and ‘sisterhood’ so came up with the obvious trick of infusing the word with a ‘y’ from ‘sissy.’ Of course, it’s fundamentally flawed because when you speak it you don’t know the ‘y’ is there.

2. Padavka

This is the  straightforward linguistic approach. After translating the word ‘sissy’ into 56 languages on Google translate (in many languages they simply use the English, sissy) I liked ‘Padavka’ the most. It’s Czech. Other candidates included…

  • Vekling (Swedish)
  • Curica (Bulgarian)
  • Nezhenka (Russian)

3. He-fail

Ok, obviously this one is just a joke, but as the sissy community is diverse I thought I’d throw a bone to our masochist friends.

4. Blonde on the Inside

Ok, this isn’t a noun, but I thought it was a pretty good euphemism – the sissy equivalent of ‘he’s batting for the pink team.’ One of the principle characteristics of crossgender fantasy is the stark difference between the real you and the fantasy you. Many of us are ‘blonde on the inside.’

5. Femeleon

I’ll admit that I may have started to get a little tangential here. Okay…a sissy changes its appearance in a ‘fem’ way, but now I think of it, this is a little bit too Xmen.

6. Novagirl

This comes from the Latin ‘nova’ for ‘new’. I liked this name so much that I decided to buy the domain and change the name of my website (a hasty decision I’m starting to realize!) However, I still love the term because I’m generally obssessed with starting a new life…especially as a girl.


Well, I don’t think I’ve found a definitive or adequate substitute for the word, sissy, but I had a lot of fun along the way. Tell me in the comments section what you think would be a good substitute…or are you a ‘sissy’ loyalist?

The End…

If you’re interested in understanding sissy fantasies, crossgender behaviour and crossdreaming, then I recommend our collection of books. It’s a single download!

  1. I’d have to agree with Felix on this that ‘Sissy’ is a derogatory term which is meant to deride guys off their feminine qualities by others. The underlying connotations of the term have become so perverse today that there is a sure need to replace it with a ‘more perfect’ term. A singular word, which is easy and quick to remember should do the job. Unfortunately, I can’t come up with a better term myself but Nova Girl does come close.

    • Thanks so much Shubham for your input. As you have such a wonderful and grandiose name, maybe you should think up the replacement term.

    • I am a proud ultra-feminine submissive Sissy. The only “masculine” parts of me are under my skirts. I love being a Sissy.

  2. @ Barbara Haskell : it’s interesting how you analized the need to have a barrier between the 2 “me”, I’m in this case and I also think that pejorative words like sissy or other name “degrading” tries to maintain this barrier, but is this indispenssable? For my part, in the beginning it helps me, but now I evolve, and I do not think I still need this kind of qualifier, the masculine self having accepted the feminine ego. A naughty feminine, not to say a lot more to deprive, of course, but in what it deserves a devaluation of my feminine self, I accept and love that game sex but not outside, like a real woman are. Jespere that google translation will make me understand, excuse me I’m french 🙂
