In regard to a possible sexual harassment issue, a man of Mexican origin, now living in the Los Angeles area (California, USA), is alleged to have called a woman a "paletero" (or possibly paletera). Other than "popsicle salesperson" I am wondering if there is any sexual or obscene meaning associated with the term. "Paleta" is used by some to describe the shoulder blade (escápula, hueso del hombro), the kneecap (rótula), and even shin bone (espinilla). I wonder if it might also be used to refer to a woman's private parts. Gracias a todos.
