    a word from English criminal jail slang

    Hi everybody.
    I have a question about translation of one word.
    This word is used in Russian criminal jail slang.
    In its direct meaning it means "cock".
    In the slang it means the following:
    a man - prisoner - who is placed by other prisoners on the lowest
    place of prisoners internal hierarchy and is regularly raped by all
    of them.
    What's its analog in English (British and American) jail criminal slang?
    If you know many analogs give me all.
    Thanks.

    петух
    The bear looked at the car, and reflections of fire danced in his eyes. He knew what to do.

    Well my book translates it as "a passive homosexual". I know that isn't quite the American slang term, but maybe this will help someone more familiar with the prison jargon to find a word. DDT, I am looking at you!

    Nope, sorry! But somehow I have managed to, so far, avoid the slammer. Maybe Dogboy knows. he he he !

    According to "Краткий англо-русский и русско-английский словарь англо-русского уголовного жаргона" by Ю.П. Дубягин and Е.А. Теплицкий:

    дочка, козлёнок, плашкет, чебурашка --- подросток-гомосексуалист, гл. обр. как пассивный партнёр для сокамерника

    bo, gunsel, punk --- a pansy boy, esp. a prisoner's catamite

    ---

    акробат (голубок, гребень, гудок мешаный, дама, додик, жося, козёл, копчик, кочет, люська, маргаритка, петух, пивень, пинч, шурик) --- пассивный гомосексуалист

    bender, fruit, gash, girl, hat, hump, Mary, nance, pansy, podger, taker.

    I didn't look through all the book, it's kinda tiresome to read all this stuff. Maybe you'll find something suitable.

    Yeah, some of those could work. Of course, the vast amount of literate English-speakers wouldn't know what the word meant unless there was some context... just like Russians wouldn't automatically think of пассивный гомосексуалист when they hear петух... or do they?
