Charles C. Boycott †1897 English land agent in Ireland who was ostracized for refusing to reduce rentsCharles, according to the alleged link on wikipedia, looked the part of a snotty tweedy Tory overlord:
Both Bill O'Reilly and Adam Carolla complained that the word "boycott" is seemingly sexist and offered carp gender neutral morphologies of "girl-cotts" or "miss-cotts":
It somewhat begs the question of what on earth people think the second syllable "cott" possibly means. Perhaps they're being old school and assume its the obsolete definition of "cote" :
To go side by side with; hence, to pass by; to outrun and get before; as, a dog cotes a hareOf course, perhaps I'm just being humorlessly overly pedantic and persnickety in my unsolicited feedback, and should just chill out in a "buy-cott" of Chick-Fil-A.
