Condescending thing to call someone in Spanish?
So, I'm working on a story about Ernesto and Teresa, and I want to think of something he'd call her that's not outright profanity, but is so horrendously condescending that it's obvious she's barely a person (equivalent to "babycakes" or "sweet thing" or "sweetcheeks"... things men call women when they slap them on the backside without consent). In the '10s in Mexico. ;p Oddly, this turns out not to be an easy Google search, though I've found many lovely pages full of contemporary colorful insults.

My husband suggests “jovencita”—“young lady” but with the diminutive, and he says that could convey the same sort of condescending attitude.
