Origin of the term

“Mewl” or “mewling” dates back to the 1600th century and is the sound one makes when crying like a baby or like a cat’s “meow”.

“Quim” is also originated from the 1600’s, directly meaning “vagina” but more similar to today’s word “cunt” in its derogatory manner. Around 1935 was used as a harsh and rude word for “women collectively”.

Spread of the term

After not being much used the last few decades, the insult made a great comeback after “Loki”(Tom Hiddleston) uses the term to insult “Black Widow”(Natasha Romanova) in the first film of the celebrated movie franchise “The Avengers” by Marvel Comics.

After the movie, the searches for the phrase spiked as most Marvel fans didn’t know the meaning of the victorian insult.

Since, the usage has somewhat increased in the online community, and a number of memes depicting Loki saying the insult has circulated across social media platforms.
