    Here in Northern Ireland we generally call a spade a spade.
    One of the phrases is “He’s a real Ginnyanne”. You can see what that term would indicate.
    Has it ever been labelled at you?

      Some more sayings we have are
      The lift doesn’t go to the top floor.
      He’s a couple of slices short of a loaf.
      If he’d brains he’d be dangerous.
      You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.
      There was a football/soccer referee who had no hair and we shouted take the hair out of your eyes baldy.
      Mothers used to say come over here till I hit you (after you’d done something naughty).
      He swings both ways.
      There’s a few others I’d like to post but they’re too crude.
      Typical working class area, where there good honest plain speaking.

      Another phrase we use is “He sits down to pee”.
      I loved the comedian Les Dawson especially when he and Roy Barrowclough played Cissie and Aida. They used sayings which the women of working class areas in the North of England used to come of with. We’d similar sayings in Belfast when I was growing up.
      I don’t claim to be a Psychologist, but I often think has the way these women spoke rubbed of on me?

      “i
      Ekie-thump! I ‘ve ne’er heard o’ “ginny anne”

      By heav’n as like, I’d no idea what the’ means !.

      I’ve been called lots of things but never that, but tbh, my search skills have failed to provide me with anything convincing. And that is strange. I’ve tried two words, I’ve tried taking the ‘e’ off the end, I’ve made sure ‘safe search’ is off. But no.

      Angela has obviously had more luck. And I’m struggling again. in that I’ve never seen ‘whimp’ spelt with an ‘h’? Perhaps I’ve lived a more sheltered life than I thought, lol.

      By the way wimp can be a perfectly respectable word these days:

      “a hypothetical subatomic particle of large mass that interacts weakly with ordinary matter through gravitation; postulated as a constituent of the dark matter of the universe”

      I bet you didn’t want to know that.

      Never heard of that one. It must be a very local saying from your neck of the woods. Looking it up it means whimpish boy and a reference to being gay. I’ve been called a whimp though…
