Word Choice

I thought bed-wetting in this context meant "too easily frightened," but possibly I was thinking of "pants-peeing" instead.

Well, this provides some support for my interpretation, but this definitely supports Liberman's interpretation of "immature." These (fewer false positives) suggest immaturity to me, but mostly it seems to be used as a generic term of abuse. OK, that's enough braincells devoted to this one.
