Fiotte is a contraction of the term Fillotte, from the dialect of Franche-Comté, which in turn comes from the French language Fillette which means little girl. There are records of the derogatory use of the term since the end of the 19th century, although in origin it seems that the meaning was more that of cowardice or not much virile, pussy. Throughout the 20th century and especially at the end, the term Fiotte, even without losing its sense of cowardice, has been used as a synonym of Pédé (sissy). Others terms like Fiotterie (fagness) or Fiottard (faggot) derive from this word. We already know that it is important in any language to distinguish between the top one (fiottard) and the bottom one (fillotte).
