today is a derogatory term used in Spain and Mexico against “masculine” women, and that is synonymous with Marimacho. The reason for inclusion in the dictionary is that its first reference is older than Marimacho, as appearing in the Spanish-Latin Dictionary by Nebrija, published in 1495. At that time, and today has the first meaning of “sterile” and the second “mannish”. Corominas relates it to the alleged inability to have offspring of mannish women to whom equate with lesbians, but we think it is a feminine and derogatory variant of the word macho, applied to those women who, for whatever reason, did not comply with the strict code of female behavior, as we explained in this dictionary entry, Marimacho, having nothing to do with the orientation or sexual life of women, at that time, quite limited.
