From the French term, pensée, meaning "to think". Around the 15th century, it was the women who were criticized for "thinking too much". If a young man behaved the same way he was considered effeminate and less of a manly stud than the other men. He was regarded as having no machismo and labeled a sissy. Well, well you namby-pambies looks like you'll grow up to be men with the awesome power to think on your own; a free thinker!
