Sirs, mesdames

This word, that is, "effete", has been discussed in a recent article in the Times. I know, though because this is the "English only" forum I may not say, its etymological antecedents, so I am not allowed here to use or refer to the Latin origins of the word.

What do you, English Foreasters or anglophone members, understand by this word?
