Lavette is used to name a weak man, characterless or coward and hence it is sometimes used to point to homosexual men since, as on so many occasions, the negative characteristics of some men are assigned to homosexual men by the simple fact of being so, characteristics that in this case are also socially assigned to women. There is a whole collection of similar expressions in Quebec, such as Mauviette (weak), Femmelette (little woman) or Moumoune (pussy), which, while not being direct synonymous with sissy, are used to scorn gay people by their feminization.
