derogatory or pet name used for a woman, i.e. dame
. However, the word comes from the candy- "Tootsie Roll." The name "Tootsie" is short for Tutankhamen
, the King of Egypt during the XVIII Dynast. The Tootsie Roll is also sometimes given the racist pseudonym "nigger-roll"- which is obviously horrible- however unknowingly accurate since the candy is already a euphemism for this.
