Cunt

What is so bad about the word Cunt? Why do women find it so ridiculoulsy offensive above and beyond almost any other word?

No, Brad's right though, and I think I've commented on this before here too. If you ever really want to piss a girl off, you just call her a cunt.

I think part of it is because it is a curse word that isn't over used. Like you call a girl a bitch or a slut or whatever and it's lost its value through repetition. But if you play the cunt card, you'se searching for a slapping.

I may be wrong here but I think its because a lot of woman think their own vaginas are gross. The word cunt brings to mind is a negative and harsh word for something they already think is disgusting. Calling them a cunt is therefore pretty offensive. And as it has been said the term has yet to be over used.

Interesting, but I don't agree.

I think these "why do people get offended about X" topics are funny. Bitching about certain people taking offense to these things is not going to change whether or not they get offended by it.

If you want to offend people go ahead and say it. If you don't want to offend them, don't say it. Pointing out how they are "stupid" or "wrong" etc. for getting offended certainly isn't going to change their mind, just piss them off more.

Because you are taking a body part which is exclusive to their gender and using it in a derogatory sense-when women are sexually degraded on a common basis already.

True-men have to put up with stereotypes and shit-but women do moreso and on a more regular basis.

Also, lots of society places degradation/guilt on a woman's sexual pleasure-and using 'cunt' further degrades female sexuality.

Moreover, the word cunt is deriven from the french word which in American culture carries a negative stigma-however in french is very positive and beautiful-much like the english word vulva

Yeah I agree with Vin. Also I always have the policy that if a word offends people I won't use it unless it's the only word I can find for that situation - there are plenty of words you can use to express something being negative so I don't understand why people use words that particular people have clearly said offends them. Actually I do understand - it's because the people using the words are selfish and think that if a word doesn't offend them personally then it's ok to use it - also they don't have much respect for the people they are offending. There are plenty of words that don't offend me but I still won't use them - especially on a public forum as opposed to with people who I know in person. I guess though that when I see people use a word that I know is offensive to some people in a public place like modified I lose a lot of respect for them too. Sometimes I guess people also use offensive words because they are ignorant.

If I called one of you a boob, you wouldn't raise a fucking finger. All your logic is trash. Cultures just put more emphasis on some curses, and less on others. That's all it is. None of this crap about using a body part as a bad term.

You're an ignorant ass filling this thread without intelligent responses and simply asinine commentary. That was an innapropriate and worthless response.

Since you're always on peoples dicks about grammar, you should've said "with uninteligent responses" not "without inteligent responses."

I gotta say, Dan, I really love that disclaimer. it's kept me from writing a lot of angry responses to a lot of your absurd posts.

Although, really, you need a new username. The "Shred" part of "BainbridgeShred" is kind of misleading. How about "BainbridgeFlame" or "BainbridgeHarass"? Maybe "BainbridgeLame". or "BainbridgeCantShred"?

keep up the good work, you boob.
BRICK!

It would be great if this thread didn't turn into a Dan vs. everyone thread like so many do.

I don't find any part of my body gross or disgusting.

I think you're missing the point. Women don't just dislike being called cunts, they hate the word itself. There's a difference between being offended at someone calling me a jerk, and being offended at the work jerk being said in my presence. Although you're right that most women really don't like being called cunts either.

I think it's really funny that this question was asked of the posters on modified, which is mostly made up of young guys. Your answers have been enlightening.
