Why is being called a cunt so offensive?

33 posts in this topic

I thought a cunt was a pussy. I don't get it. Maybe it's a white thing because I've never heard the word used in any black movies, stand up comedy, or anything. Enlighten me pale faces.

But does it mean something other than vagina? I know it's used towards women who are evil, frigid, bitches but it seems like the word cunt is worse than calling someone an evil, frigid, bitch.

It doesn't offend me either. To be honest, I kind of prefer it. It has a cleaner sound to it than "pussy", and I always feel a little more satisfied after I say it than "bitch". Switches things up a little.

I have a friend who can't stand it, but she justifies her anger by saying it's "disrespectful" - this doesn't clarify things much, so I've always been in the dark. Glad I'm not alone.

hmm. not sure. jim jefferies uses it a lot. hilarious.

the word doesn't offend me. although, i have a bit of a potty mouth.

/edit: JayG makes an excellent point re: semantics. I hadn't put a whole lot of thought into that before!

I think it's just generally a nasty sounding word. It's more semantic than anything. You usually only hear it used as in "so and so is a cunt", and not a women using it to actually describe her hoo-ha.

Of course, we can change that. Let's start a cunt movement.

*edit* or for a different opinion, see post above!

Louis CK has a funny bit about how "cunt" isn't a very good word for vagina. Since vagina are such wonderful, lovely things and cunt sounds like a something that would stab you in the face. Or something.

I don't understand the hate for it either. However, as it is the only curse word that actually offends people, I am quite happy to have it in my arsenal. Stupid cunts should really know their place.

It's got a lot of hard consonants.

I actually learned a little bit about this in a linguistics class I took...phonology has a lot to do with how words are perceived. It just sounds like a mean and ugly word. "Pussy" sounds softer and less harsh. Also, there's "pussy" as in "pussy cat." Cunt is just cunt.

the fact that it polarizes people is what is so wonderful. i can say fuck, and you'll probably just brush it off. but if i call you a loopy cunt... well, it's on.
