ps the "mewling" qualifier only amplifies the vulgarity. think im gonna borrow the phrase the next time a (male) friend is moaning about something or other - "Don't be such a mewling quim, Chad. She's not worth it." - in lieu of "whiney b***h".
I think you'll be able to catch most people off-guard with it and confuse them. Unless people look it up, most won't know how hard they are being insulted, if at all.
