Manʹka (манька)

The Russian word Manʹka (манька) is a derogatory variant of Manâ (Маня) which is the hypocoristic of Marʹâ (Марья), whose English translation is Maria, the woman’s name. In Russia, people use this slang to refer derogatorily to homosexual men, especially effeminate ones. So, we could translate Manʹka into English as a sissy.
