Poopsie is a word used by my ex-boyfriend which I thought as sexist and demeaning he might’ve treated me nice but I was his concubine, bound feet, dyslexic, suzy wong or trophy wife. He’s a psychologist of Belgian or Jewish descent. After a 7-year relation he got his 7-year itch and the following year he got me arrested for domestic violence after I got laid off. I was homeless for 6 months he encouraged me to collect disability benefits as he surfed the net for a Russian Jewish-Korean wife. She is 29. He keeps 2 houses in P-Town and his rent stabilized apt in Soho. Of course, there is no word for a man unless he’s a Casanova, a playboy and other positive things to prove his virility.
