Sissy (derived from sister), also sissy baby, sissy boy, sissy man, sissy pants, etc., is a pejorative term for a boy or man who does not demonstrate masculine traits, and shows possible signs of fragility. Generally, sissy implies a lack of courage, strength, athleticism, coordination, testosterone, male libido, and stoicism, all of which have typically been associated with masculinity and considered important to the male role in Western society. A man might also be considered a sissy for being interested in typically feminine hobbies or employment (e.g., being fond of fashion), displaying effeminate behavior (e.g., using hair products, hydrating products, or displaying limp wrists), being unathletic or being homosexual.
Sissy is, approximately, the male converse of tomboy (a girl with masculine traits or interests), but carries more strongly negative connotations. Research published in 2015 suggests that the terms are asymmetrical in their power to stigmatize: sissy is almost always pejorative and conveys greater severity, while tomboy rarely causes as much concern but also elicits pressure to conform to social expectations. In some communities, especially ones whose members are prominently part of Generation Z, highly effeminate males are referred to as \"femboys\" (feminine boy), a term which aims to provide a way to refer to effeminate males without negative connotations.
The term sissy has historically been used among school children as a \"relentlessly negative\" insult, implying immaturity and gender or sexual deviance. It has been identified as sexist in guidance issued to schools in the United Kingdom and described as \"just as unacceptable as racist and homophobic language.\" The terms gender creative, pink boy, and tomgirl have been suggested as polite alternatives. The Japanese word bishōnencode: jpn promoted to code: ja (literally \"beautiful youth\") and the Korean word kkonminamcode: kor promoted to code: ko (literally \"flower boy\") are also polite terms for a man or boy with gentle or feminine attributes.
By the late 1980s, some men began to reclaim the term sissy for themselves. The spelling variation cissy was used in British English, at least prior to the mid 1970s. In the United States, the Comedy Central television series South Park inverted its meaning in a 2014 episode titled \"The Cissy\", which lampooned the controversy over transgender students' use of school restrooms; in the episode, a restroom initially designated for use by transgender students is later re-designated as \"the cissy bathroom\" for use by transphobic cisgender students.
Sissies are sometimes perceived as threats to masculine power. For example, in 2018, official Chinese state media derided \"sissy pants\" young men (who use makeup, are slender, and wear androgynous clothing) as part of a \"sickly\" culture that threatened the future of the nation by undermining its militaristic image. In 2021, China's Ministry of Education issued guidelines for the \"cultivation of students' masculinity\" to \"prevent the feminization of male adolescents\" through sports, physical education, and \"health education\" in schools.
In 2021 the National Radio and Television Administration of China added a ban on \"sissy men and other abnormal esthetics\" to its rules using the offensive term niang paocode: zho promoted to code: zh .
The term sissyphobia denotes a negative cultural reaction against \"sissy boys\" thought prevalent in 1974. Sissyphobia has more recently been used in some queer studies; other authors in this latter area have proposed effeminiphobia, femiphobia, femmephobia, or effemimania as alternative terms.
The discourse of straight-acting produces and reproduces anti-femininity and homophobia (Clarkson. 2006). For example, feminine gay men are often labeled \"fem,\" \"bitchy,\" \"pissy,\" \"sissy,\" or \"queen\" (e.g., Christian, 2005; Clarkson, 2006; Payne,2007). They are perceived as if they perform like \"women,\" spurring straight-acting gay men to have negative attitudes toward feminine-acting gay men (Clarkson, 2006; Payne, 2007;Ward, 2000). This is called sissyphobia (Bergling, 2001). Kimmel (1996) supports that \"masculinity has been (historically) defined as the flight from women and the repudiation of femininity\" (p. 123). Thus, sissyphobia plays as the communication strategy for straight-acting gay men to justify and empower their masculinity. (p. 38).
Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film 3 and stars out of four and wrote, \"The movie exists outside our expectations for such stories. Nothing about it is conventional. The three-member household is puzzling not only to us, but to its members. We expect conflict, resolution, an ending happy or sad, but what we get is mostly life, muddling through . . . Colin Farrell is astonishing in the movie, not least because the character is such a departure from everything he has done before.\"
Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle stated, \"What we have here . . . is a movie about a friendship and about the changing nature of families. We also have a movie about what it was like to be a child in the late 1960s, a teenager in the mid-1970s and a young adult in the early 1980s. In these aspects, the film is sensitive, sociologically accurate and emotionally true. But the picture is also the story of one character in particular, Bobby, and when it comes to Bobby, A Home at the End of the World is sappy and bogus.\" He added, \"Farrell is not the first actor anyone would cast as an innocent, and he seems to know that and is keen on making good. His speech is tentative but true. His eyes are darting but soulful. The effort is there, but it's a performance you end up rooting for rather than enjoying, because there's no way to just relax and watch.\"

Since its release, Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ(2004) has proven to be as commercially successful as it has beencontroversial. Given its use of ancient languages, controversial subjectmatter and lack of high-profile stars, what began as a Holy Week release withan uncertain future turned into a surprise blockbuster sensation. Citingthese very challenges, New York Times columnist Frank Rich wrote in advanceof the film's release, \"it's hard to imagine the movie beinganything other than a flop in America.\" (1) Nonetheless, the film brokeopening day records and, building on that momentum, went on to become2004's highest-grossing film world-wide, making over $608 million.Further, it became the all-time highest grossing R-rated film, and its DVDsales have continued to contribute to its financial and popular success. (2)Anticipating one of the most prominent controversies surrounding the film,Rich reported on Gibson's response to being asked about whether thefilm's portrayal of Jewish people might offend some. The directorresponded, saying, \"It may. It's not meant to. I think it'smeant to just tell the truth.... Anybody who transgresses has to look attheir own part or look at their own culpability.\" Since that time, manyhave indeed examined Passion for what they see as problematic portrayals andthe particular \"truth\" it depicts.
Looking back on the tenth anniversary of its release, the quantityand range of critical responses to Gibson's landmark film is remarkable.Debated in the media, as well as by religious leaders, the film sparkedintense popular interest. Although it has been praised for its cinematographyand spiritual impact on many viewers, it has also been criticized for itsexcessive violence, historical inaccuracies and portrayal of Jewish people.Further, the film has been the subject of numerous journal articles(Crawford, 2004; Cunningham, 2004; Flannery-Dailey, 2004; Hamm, 2004; Lawler,2004; Madden, 2004; Mork, 2004; Paawlikowski, 2004; Reinhartz, 2004; Sandmel,2004; Silk, 2004; Cooper, 2005; Moore, 2005; Astell, 2006, Brown &Lindvall, 2007, Gonshak, 2008; Maddux, 2008; Lundberg, 2009; Trammell, 2010;Gunn, 2012) and academic books (Corley & Webb, 2004; Gracia, 2004; Plate,2004; Beal & Linafelt. 2005, Garber, 2006; Beal & Linafelt, 2006).The array of scholarly reflections on the movie and its impact is impressive.At the forefront of these academic reflections are critical considerations ofThe Passions' anti-Semitism (Corley & Webb, 2004; Gracia, 2004;Flannery-Dailey, 2004; Hamm, 2004; Mork, 2004; Paawlikowski, 2004; Plate,2004; Reinhartz, 2004; Sandmel, 2004; Beal & Linafelt, 2005; Cooper,2005; Garber, 2006; Gonshak, 2008). 59ce067264
