Hello everyone! I'm not sure if this thread belongs in this forum, but anyway here it goes. I get the idea that this word is used as some kind of disapproving comment. Here's the story. I am Jewish but I don't follow the tradition in any way. The thing is that yesterday I went to a sinagogue because there was a special celebration in honour to my best friend's son. This sinagogue is a very strict one, and even when I knew I had to wear a skirt, I didn't. I decided to wear formal trousers, instead. So, when I arrived to the women section, among the other women there was a mum with her two little boys (around three or four years old), and as soon as the boys saw me, one of them told his mummy: "look, mummy; there's a toté" (accenting the last vowel). The mother didn't respond to the comment, to which the boy made the same comment again. Still, the mother didn't say a word. (Presumably she considered it was kind kind of disrespectful to aknowledge the comment since i was present) All the other women were chatting, so it's not that she didn't speak because it was one of those "no speaking, just hearing" moments. Judging from the whole picture, I think it has to be some kind of disapproving word to refer to a woman. Am I Right? One more thing: in case it's relevant. The scene took place here in Uruguay, and the boy speaks Spanish.
