A local judge has dismissed a defamation lawsuit in which the plaintiff alleged that the defendant called him a “pussy” on numerous occasions.

Donovan Lee, 28, complained that his co-worker Frank McKay, 57, frequently used the term as an insult, to hurt and embarrass. In his testimony, McKay confessed to having called Lee by that name but insisted it was intended as a compliment.

“Mama always told me, ‘You are what you eat,’” McKay explained, “so I considered it the highest compliment to Don’s masculinity.”

Lee countered that he was a known homosexual and further alleged that the defendant was well aware of his sexual orientation. McKay denied this knowledge, citing the plaintiff’s clothes and “manly” gait as proof.

After instructing the plaintiff to walk the length of the courtroom, the suit was dismissed with prejudice.
