Well, boys and girls, if you're counting ways to get me to plonk, here's another one.

Of course, I'd probably be happy to if you asked me nicely as well. A sort of "friendly mutual plonk."
Which remarks in the ticket thread??...and of course it a horrible word... use bitch, whore, prick, bastard, motherfucker, asshole, slut, or harlot, and it hasno effect.

But for some reason, that short, simple, 1 syllable C-word, has a catastrophic effect for some reason. Im not sure why, compared to others its defined intention is more innocent than the others...

Yeah, I don't quite get that, since "He's a dick," doesn't ever get the same horrified reaction as "She's a cunt." Maybe it's an onomatopoetic effect, I don't know. But it puzzles me.

I kind of like the word, myself; it has a strong, deep, sturdy sound (Proto-Germanic?), rather Shakespearian, I think. I like it better than "pussy," anyway, sheesh... :roll:

Yeah, the whole language for women and for sex in general is problematic. And certainly when a man is putting down other men by giving them women's anatomy or attributes that's a big red flag, as a feminist and as a little bit gender-queer.
If it makes anyone feel any better, I'm quite liking Bernie Gunter/Philip Kerr's "plum." "Mouse" I'm more ambivalent about. I once met a men who liked "quim." (Derived from qwm which must be one of a very few english words without vowels. Derived from the Welsh for "valley.")
English has more words than any other language in the world. It's too bad that we don't have a better selection in this place.

I'm trying to imagine using those words in an intimate exchange, or in erotic fiction, and really not getting very far! Oh well I guess I need to free my mind. Thanks! I will take these thoughts to bed with me. 8) It's after midnight here.

The other night, we watched Hal Sparks, a comedian on one of the premium channels. He pointed out that a pussy stretches 3 times its normal size and bleeds once a month and does not die! Yet the term designates someone who is "wimpy".

Meanwhile, a guy with big balls is supposed to be all macho. One little flick of the balls and the guy is on the ground in misery! So someone with "balls" should actually be the wimp and the pussy should be the tough one! Makes sense to me!

I prefer "love tunnel drenched in labial essence."

Trish prefers the simple term, "VAG."

The one and only time an adult called me a cunt it struck me as so funny that i burst into laughter. I couldn't stop laughing for quite a long time. Totally made the guy calling me that look like the goofball he really was. I haven't been able to take that man seriously about anything ever again.

and then once my stepdaughter called me cunt, as that is what her mom said to call me. I asked her what she thought that meant, she didn't know and then we looked it up. It made her sad. After that she would run things by me that she learned from her bio before she used it in public. poor kid was 5. Yes, we had custody for pretty obvious reasons.

For the record, crypt, I would definately not use that word toward a guy, It would not even cross my mind, and I have never personally heard it used as an insult for a guy. It really would not make sense, and a guy would not give a fuck, perhaps the term bitch for a guy would be more effective in that case. In my post I was using a general insult towards people, fuckhead, prick, or asshole would have worked just fine, and the insult was intended toward snarky PEOPLE in general not women.

Even If a man was offended with that insult because it is calling him a woman, I understand where they would be coming from. Men often take pride in their manhood, just as you women do of your womanhood. I would bet the average woman would be offended if someone told her she was manly and manly looking, especially if she took pride in her womanhood and sexuality

Also for the record, with you being a feminist, I personally feel that getting offended at the word "cunt", JUST because you are a woman, is in itself sexist. Had I posted prick, bastard, or dick, you would not have thought twice about it or mentioned it. Kinda oxymoronizes the idea of feminism, which I assume is equality among sexes, or am I wrong about this? Is the goal to achieve higher societal status over men?

P.S. Oh yes yes yes, I just invented that word, oxymoronizes, and I LIKE IT! >;)

For the record, I don't use the C-word because I know how volatile it can be for some women, and also,because use of those words tends to do much more damage to the person using them than to the recipient.

Having said that, I am glad that I have not let any "magic words" have such power over me.

Agreed, words are words, When writing that word I envisioned not a man, not a woman, but a Snarky PERSON. If it offended, than I apologize. perhaps I shoulda used a more gender neutral insult, like... Meanie Heads... :idea:

It is seldom that I find anybody that is truly worth berating.

If I do, the best retort is the C-word.

Since life is change, and change is life, the responce is "dont ever Change".

And the best advice is "Change your mind".
