@Baptist John "effeminate" in Paul's time didn't mean what it did even in the time of St. Thomas Aquinas who covered this term extenseively.

Simply put, the actual word Paul wrote meant "soft/ weak".

The Greek was translated using a Latin word that conflates those physical (and moral) qualities with those of gender. Effeminate stems from the From Latin effeminatus, past participle of effemino, from femina (woman).

Not all women are soft/ weak, particularly in their character or morals. Witness The Blessed Mother, the sorrows she endured. Similarly, the hundreds of women martyrs and saints the Chruch also recognizes for their strength and courage.
Baptist John
"

Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,

Nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God."

-The First Epistle of Saint Paul to the Corinthians
