Why do women get so offended when you call them the word CUNT?
Men don''t get so angry when they get called a dick or cock, but women fly into fits of rage when you call them a cunt. I love it.
You like making your Mama cry, OP?\
You Are a dick.
I''m glad you love it--and what good karma you''re building for yourself. Poor thing. I''m sorry for what you are about to face.
OP = Mel Gibson
There''s no such thing as karma and cunt is a really nasty thing to call someone unless it''s joking between close friends.
You hope that''s true, R4. You hope.
Why do negroes get so offended when you call them the word NIGGER?\
White men don''t get so angry when they get called a whitey or cracker, but negroes fly into fits of rage when you call them a nigger. I love it.
You believe I hope which is true? That it''s ok to jokingly call your friends bad names or that fairy tales aren''t true? I know both are correct. Take care of yourself.
OP, I don''t mind the word cunt -- you can call me a cunt all day long, if you want.%0D\
OTOH, you''re a sissy-boy faggot with a prolapsed anus and you swing your ass like a girl when you walk.%0D\
Why does this thread topic, or something similar, show up on DL at least once a month? Someone is a little obsessed.%0D\
You might want to get some help for your many deep seated and disturbing mommy issues, OP.
[quote] Why does this thread topic, or something similar, show up on DL at least once a month?\
No, women get called "cunts" here a lot since they got rid of the lesbian forum, but we''ve actually not had, in my 7 years here, a thread on this specific topic.
I think the OP is Mel Gibson
It is not the word so much, as the tone of voice and intention behind it. Just as there is a difference between swearing in general and directing it at someone, there is a difference depending on why you are using the word. %0D\
Exactly, R12. And in the case of abusive men like Mel Gibson, it''s clearly not meant as a joke - it is meant to hurt and demean.\
Just listen to the Mel tapes.
Because OP, society doesn''t tell men that their genitals are bad, dirty, and the root of all evil. Call a man limp dick or little dick or impotent, and see how offended he gets.
Cheryl is a cunt.
Deep down their biggest fear is that they are just a penis hole.
The worst thing you can call a woman is a cunt.\
The worst thing you can call a man is a cocksucker.\
It''s that society has long exalted what is male and what is heterosexual and denigrated and oppressed what is female and what is homosexual.\
Women are keenly aware of this and react to being called "cunts" in kind. They are offended and often angered by it. And justly.
OP, where do you live that people call you a cock?
Never heard that term
I''m a gay man and I am always shocked if someone else says it. It is offensive. Probably the word I am most stunned to hear anyone use.
OOP, watch the scene in the film "Veronica Guerin" where a man who beats her bloody repeatedly yells the word ather while he hits her. That''s how women feel when that word (I can''t even type it, is is so nasty) is used to describe them.
R19, what did you think when you heard Mel Gibson use it hundreds of times on the tapes?
It is because it reminds women of the true inequality that exists between the sexes.
Oh, OP, you silly cunt.
I don''t call women cunts but I''d call a man one in a second if he deserves it. I tend to have more respect for women.
Probably the same reason you get offended when somebody calls you a faggot.
Only a few women deserve to be called cunts. Cunts are several degrees above merely being bitches. It''s a term that should be reserved for only the most vile of women.%0D\
OTOH, I think it''s funny to call men cunts.
R19 ... I haven''t listened to the tapes. Probably won''t ever. I already know Mel''s a jerk, so why waste the time.
Do you like being called faggot? I''m just wondering.
I think there are a lot more negative terms for gay men than there are for women.
Ought not be a competition.
Not OP, but I do find this topic interesting, because I''ve always known cunt was a derogatory word, but never knew it really incited that much rage. I would like to know why.%0D\
I use the word faggot casually with friends. I don''t like to be called one by a non gay males because it is offensive. Just as I don''t mind using nigger with family, since I am black, but I don''t want to be called one by someone who isn''t black. I have been called both over the years by people outside those groups, but never flew into a rage over it.%0D\
You never hear women casually using cunt. Educate me on why this word is so offensive. Is it because it reduces a woman to just her sexual organs, so she is just seen as a place for men to put there dicks?%0D\
Is bitch less offensive because it has no relation to the male / female dynamic?
R32: Yes. %0D\
And it''s "their" dicks. As in, "OP has offended so many people they''ll never want to put their dicks in his sad filthy hole."
Why do faggots gets so offended when you call them the world FAGGOT?
You can be banned here if you use faggot or fag. Dyke and cunt are okay. Why?
They get offended because they are women.....if they don''t have a soap box to stand on, they don''t feel whole
Because a "dick" is the the thing that fucks. A "cunt" is the thing that gets fucked. It''s like geting slapped in the face for a woman - that''s why they look so shocked when they hear it.%0D\
Calling someone a "dick" implies that he''s an asshole, but at least an asshole that needs to be dealt with or taken seriously. Calling a woman a "cunt" is dismissive - at if that''s all she is, and she''s lucky anyone puts up with her silliness at all.%0D\
It''s the trump card of insults. If it goes any further, you''re likely to get shoved or hit.%0D\
Now go in the kitchen and make me a sandwich
A cunt is a vagina. IS that SO bad?%0D\
My brother always calls himself a half-cunt, because a full cunt is useful
"I think there are a lot more negative terms for gay men than there are for women."\
I used to believe that it was the worst possible word anyone could say -- because I had been told so. But after a while -- especially after seeing it used so frequently here on the Datalounge -- I see that it''s just a word. And it''s stupid to let any word have that kind of power. Grow up.
First known reference in English is said to be c.1230 Oxford or London street name Gropecuntlane, presumably a haunt of prostitutes. Avoided in public speech since 15c.; considered obscene since 17c.
okay, ladies, what about if a man calls himself a cunt?
In the UK they throw around the word cunt like it''s nothing. Both men and women use the word. It''s nothing to them...\
I''m more offended to be called a Van Ark. Seriously.
Constnce McCashin, eating popcorn but wishing it was Screaming Yellow Zonkers
[quote]You never hear women casually using cunt.\
My friends and I use the word "cunt" casually all the time. But it''s a word we only dare to use with each other, never with other people.
I''ve called one woman a cunt in my entire life and she truly deserved it. She''s a very cruel and insensitive woman who loves nothing more than to demean and belittle people for her own amusement. It''s kind of strange that slang for female genitalia is the best word I can use to describe her, since the only other people I''ve met who''ve approached her level of cruelty have been men. In fact, she has a very masculine energy. It''s hard to imagine her getting periods or even crying.
OP is a needle dick...\
Hence his need to feel superior.
I think it''s funny when friends use it toward me when we''re joking around. However, I once had an acquaintance (gay male) ask me why I was "such a cunt" about a particular issue, and I was highly offended. I''ve never looked at him the same way, knowing he could use a word like that in such a circumstance.

This is why lesbians are always seen as being humorless.
OP is obviously a faggot troll. Why is anyone taking him seriously?
R49, he wasn''t using it in a humorous way. He was being completely serious, and he certainly didn''t know me well enough to be playing with words like that. If I had called him a fag, you can bet he would have been pretty "humorless" himself.
Another gay man here who doesn''t like it.\
Calling someone a "dick" -- something popularized by guys -- didn''t have the connotation of "manhood" being the bad thing, or even that a guy was thinking with his dick.\
Calling someone a "cunt" -- again something popularized by guys -- has a venom toward women as women that stands out. \
And bitter fags that say it bring an extra nastiness to it, the kind that really validates the sense that they hate all women because they can''t be them.\
Every time I read a post on DL where someone hurls it, even if I take the word OUT of the post I still see this deformed twisted troll shrieking the rest, spitting when it speaks. Like the Quentin Crisp version of Gollum.
See you next Tuesday!
Cu-unt? ... cun-t?? hahahaha... they dont give two shits about you calling them cunt. At least not around here. \
Not one single female here has the appropriate reaction to that word here, nor do all the estrogen-soaked males who get all self-righteous about so much other stuff.\
Now, use a little word like FISH... and Oh, my God... \
but cunt ... on here... meh ???
^The neighborhood retard finally shows up.
nobody can give a logical answer
When you resort to name-calling, you always intend to belittle and dismiss, whether it''d be "faggot", "cunt" or whatever. \
It''s mostly straight men trying to verbally impose the status quo, and remind everyone else of their place in the power hierarchy.
A logical answer, R56?\
Why don''t you give a logical answer for using it? OP did -- to make women angry and to relish in it. Because that''s logical (not), but still says it all.
Funnily enough, I knew "cunt" as a curse word long before I found out it also meant vagina. Yet I also knew implicitly never to call a woman a cunt. As far as I was concerned, it was a curse word only used between, and about, men.
This is like leaving a wound and then challenging the victim to define how exactly the weapon caused the harm.
Is cunty just as offensive as cunt, just askin''
"It''s mostly straight men trying to verbally impose the status quo, and remind everyone else of their place in the power hierarchy".%0D\
My G*d, could you be any wetter? I''m sure the janitorial staff at the U.C. Berkeley campus call you a c*nt every time they have to mop up the little pools of disenfranchisement you leave, everywhere you go. Dry up.%0D\
In case R56 "really" needs it spelled out, let''s sum up from what he apparently hasn''t read:\
* Because the word "cunt" is used to say someone is nasty, vile, evil, and stupid, equating those qualities with a vagina\
* Because of ALL the other insults at our disposal -- idiot, asshole, stupid fuck, shithead, creep, and, even if you want to go hormonal, bitch -- when you CHOOSE the word "cunt" you''re saying none of those other words convey the disgust you have like a woman''s vagina. \
* Because with all of the other choices for insults you have, particularly when you''re hurling it at a woman, you''re going straight for her genitals.\
* Because if you say all the words you normally use to attack someone sound like they''re describing guys and not women, clearly your issue with using the word "cunt" is about something you particularly see in women.\
So tell us, R56/OP, if there''s some "benign" reasons you''re using it, tell us what that is.
A gay man who doesn''t believe other gay men are really so dense.
OP here. First, this is DL and I exaggerated. I read the word on the internet and it reminded me of a time when I was in high school or college and I said the word around my sister and she flipped her lid, but I obviously was too scared to ask her for an exact explanation at the time. Other than that time, I''ve never called anyone that or used the term in conversation just like I''ve never used the F word for gays or N for black people or any of the other insensitive words, I just didn''t get exactly why C was the ultimate bad word for women. Now I have a better understanding.
I never used to say the word "cunt." Then I started reading Datalounge and that changed. \
No, I''m not sure that''s true. Maybe it helped but now that I think about it, I did have a gf who threw the word around when we talked about some people. She never said it out loud, was actually too much of a lady (yes, dykes can be ladies) but she said it. And then I started saying it. I think I say it at least once a day. It''s become my new "dyke." Used to, that word was enormously offensive but no more. I even use it to describe myself sometimes. \
OP, I don''t know the answer to your question but I can tell you honestly, if you called me a cunt, I would laugh. Then again, I''ve become immune to other people''s opinions and can indeed be a bit of a cunt sometimes. To the right person. \
But it is a powerful word. I know from experience that if I think a woman is a cunt, I have come to the point where I have no respect for her and will never regain it.
Well kudos to you for admitting it and being understanding, R64.\
The fact that you justify "exaggerating" the fun of hurling a word to see "women" (just women) get upset because "this is Datalounge" speaks volumes about what Datalounge has become, who''s infesting it lately, and the kind of group-think that gives gay people, particularly gay men, a bad name.
Wow, R65, just wow.\
I knew someone would come along to razz me for ragging on DL.\
I didn''t know while I was typing a lesbian who''s starting to behave like the worst of DL would come along and validate what I was saying.\
I like to use the word "snatchikins".
Hmm, I hate to say it but mhb is right. You can call me a cunt and I''ll laugh. I will know more about you and keep that knowledge for future reference but I won''t make a scene, I''ll say "damn right I''m a cunt. What''s it to you?"\
But call me "fish" and I. will. kill. you. I don''t know why I feel that way about either word. Weird. And mhb made me aware of it, which is even stranger.
First of all, I re-read my post and it''s nearly indecipherable. That''s what I get for talking on the phone and typing at the same time. I meant that my ex would use the word during private conversations with me but never say it in public. \
R67...what? Put the crackpipe down, you''re not making sense.
Someone asked if Cunty is as bad as Cunt.%0D\
In some gay circles, cunt is used interchangeably with firece. As in those shoes are so cunt. %0D\
Hell, even Kevian Aviance had a hit song with CUNTY, with a refrain of "She''s Cunt, He''s Cunt, They''re Cunt, I''m Cunt.%0D\
I think the use of the word in this case comes from tranny''s taking female hormones and the feeling they get when they kick in - "Feeling the ''mones" - makes them feel Cunt or Fierce.
Because OP, society doesn''t tell men that their genitals are bad, dirty, and the root of all evil. Call a man limp dick or little dick or impotent, and see how offended he gets.\
You are correct men don''t get offended they get mad. Most men act as if their cocks are gold and for you to call out that its not cool. This is a fact for str8 men not sure about gay men.
I have been called a "cunt" on here so many times it is not even possible to count, and never.. not one single time... has anyone, male or female, not one politically correct lesbian or one "culturally sensitive" male of the bunch who so hypocritically loves to play like he is in enlightened solidarity with the oppressed women of the world, complained or taken on the person who called me that. NEVER.
I don't mean take up for me... or agree with any of the content i write... i have never cared about that in the least from any of you...
I mean challenge the poster who used the C word for every single reason every one of you mentioned above seeing who could out-genuflect each other on the alter of political correctness.
Hypocrites. If you ralfly believed what you are writing here, you would vigilantly denounce the word each and every time it is used and demand banning from the webmistress but you don't because many of you use it with the same wink and nod that old racists used to use the "N" word, whispered and quietly in small groups where nobody had the guts to call out someone they would later see at the country club over it.
THERE. You know Im right.
oh, and in case you didnt get it. I am R73
Oh, we got it, MHB. The reason you are constantly called "cunt" is because you represent the epitome of the word in its worst context, which is why none of us "PC types" ever complains about it. I would certainly never call a woman a cunt for any reason, but you? Gladly. And no, there''s nothing hypocritical about it.
Pity party, table of one.
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaacccccccccc ulllllllleeeeeeee, it is THE epitome of hypocrite.\
Either you think the word is vile and you don''t use it, or you use it and by doing so commit a vile act yourself and forfeit any moral authority to judge others when you do.\
That is, if indeed it is the word you object to.\
if it is ME you object to, then you can find a different word or call me any name in the book you want. I dont give two shits.\
What you hate about me actually, is I call bitches like you out on this shit. And THAT is what you really hate.
I like the word and use it as I see fit. Many women are cunts. Of course, "as I see fit" means not using the word in certain company or when it is not socially proper (I know, when IS it ever "socially proper?") Well, if I have been treated poorly or cruelly by a woman or her behavior indicates a strong sense of entitlement, I have NO problem crossing her and calling her a cunt right to her face. Mean spirited women or self absorbed, nasty women can very easily be cunts. A lot of professional ball buster type women are cunts. %0D\
It is a delicious, uber-effective word when used in the right situations. In fact, no OTHER word quite fits some women.%0D\
And, no, I am not Mel Gibson. I am a gay man who does NOT take any crap from women when they try to dish it out.
ok... im waiting for all you to rush out here and jump on R78 as a "woman hater." huh?? Where are you? lets see it.\
IN. DIG. NATION. Identify her with troll dar and follow her from thread to thread. She is vile isn''t she.\
A woman hater,. We have found one... quick burn the witch.
Why? So you can THEN should HOW it was a POST made bayou from a DIFFereNt ip addresS?
r79, I am SO not a "woman hater." But I have no problem using that word. I didn''t say I used it a LOT either, did I?
WOW, is MHB off her meds, I think it may be intervention time.I''m a fan, but lately.....
I once called someone a stupid fucking cunt in a certain post on a public site. Thing is I call them as I see them and this particular cunt deserved it. \
For that I got labeled, I kid you not, as a "Danger to Women". \
My first thoughts were of the "Are you fucking serious?" line.
""It''s mostly straight men trying to verbally impose the status quo, and remind everyone else of their place in the power hierarchy".\
My G*d, could you be any wetter? I''m sure the janitorial staff at the U.C. Berkeley campus call you a c*nt every time they have to mop up the little pools of disenfranchisement you leave, everywhere you go. Dry up."\
Well - you certainly are hitting my definition of a cunt. And you''re not even witty. Don''t be so hung up on pussy, darling, we all know you''d get luckier with straight men if you had one.
The biggest cunts in the world are men. Always.
Again, nobody can give a logical answer.
Cunt is one of the meanest, nastiest words you can call a woman, in my opinion.
Average Liberal Gay Man
What about snatch or cooze? Are those less offensive. "What a fucking cooze." God I love the Urban Dictionary.%0D\
Cunt: Derogatory term for a woman. Considered by many to be the most offensive word in the English language.%0D\
Cooze: A cooze is a superficial, shallow, provincial, and generally ignorant girl, who is so intellectually and socially repulsive, that their only redeeming qualities come in the from of sex appeal. Thus, their only value to society comes in the form of their oozing, jizz filled vag. They often sluts, and are commonly considered the most contemptable, worthless wastes of life on the planet.%0D\
Snatch: The second most horrific sounding nickname for the human female''s genitals(after cunt). So much so that it can only be properly applied when descibing genitals that are presumed or understood to be filthy or disgusting.
How is it different than calling a guy say, a ball sack or a dick?
I had a very sick & twisted boss who was one.%0D\
That terrible word describes her. It''s what she was...if she were a man she''d be the same thing.
I''ve heard young women and teens/tween girls say the word very causally.
Cunt is now offensive because Andrea Dworkin and Catherine MacKinnon told their sex-loathing followers they should become hysterical every time they hear the word.
Yes, I''m a prick.
Sad to say, but I know what r78 is saying and I agree. I use faggot the exact same way. Most gay men are cool, but occasionally one will try to take her Miss Thang act too far with me and she needs to be put in her place. Nothing works as well as the F word.
R88, did you read this thread before you said it?
Let's say you're a white. If a black person calls a white person a cracker, it doesn't hurt much. The black guy's family couldn't have lynched your grandpa. If we were all living in the 19th century, he couldn't own your ass till the end of your days.
When a woman calls a man a dick, it is not at all the same thing as when he reduces her to a body part. Look at Saudi Arabia. Look at the women in Mad Men, even. Those men don't treat women like they're real people, and because they're bigger and stronger and more or less control schools and commerce, women had to take it. It's much better now, but the US is still a sexist country as much as it is a racist one. If you're comfortable calling somebody a nigger to his face, if you're OK with a straight person calling you a faggot in anger, then by all means, use cunt as an insult. It's like ending an argument by saying, "well, you're black" or "and you're gay" or "you're just a piece of meat that gets fucked," and spitting on the ground, like you've just made a great point.
"Let''s say you''re a white guy," rather. Obviously I didn''t re-read before I posted.
I can''t believe the idiocy in this thread.\
It''s all to do with privilege. The straight white man has always been privileged over everyone else. When a heterosexual calls a gay man a faggot or a lesbian a dyke, when a white person calls a black person a nigger, and when a man calls a woman a cunt they are asserting their historic privilege over them. It''s power. It''s control. \
That''s why calling a man a dick is no big deal. Sure, if we all lived in a vacuum then "dick" and "cunt" would be equally acceptable (or equally offensive) but we don''t. We live in a world with a history of repression.\
This is why it''s even more disappointing when gay men, a group with direct experience of being repressed and discriminated against, show themselves to be racist or sexist or homophobic.\
Seriously, you should have learned this shit in grade school.
The only gay in the village
I saw a web comic recently where there were 2 men, one British and one from the US, and the guy from the US complains about the use of the word "cunt". The "punchline" was that the guy from the UK says "we use the word ''cunt'' because we''re not a bunch of fucking children." (I''m somewhat paraphrasing.)\
Lots of people heralded that as being both funny and mature and basically said "Oh those stupid Americans, it''s just a WORD and it''s not anti-women at all." In the midst of those comments were things like "women just like to bitch about things" and "feminists have ruined everything"... and it became very clear that the use of "cunt" wasn''t the benign term they were claiming it was.
its just more of the fish who have to show that whatever any group or gender has they get to/ have to/ must have... the same.\
so the blacks got a word that they made totally off bounds and some sort of cardinal sin to utter and got some childish power back from trying to mandate to the world that there is a word that no person can ever say...\
and the fish had to rush in and get theirs, too... as always... to prove something... whatever it is they think they have to prove...\
their equality fetish known no limits or shame.
I think we all know that cunts come in both genders. You can be a real fucking cunt and be a guy. Being a cunt is more about being this horrible person that just so happens to imply some of the worst traits of women. I think that is why women hate it so much because they know that somewhere there is an element of truth to the whole cuntish concept.
R102, you sound like a teenager explaining why it''s OK to call things "gay."
R102 is the tired southern racist who gets called out for saying Ni**er and responds by claiming he didnt do anything wrong because there are plenty of white people who are ni**ers, too.\
It''s a tired, sad ridiculous statement that just makes you look worse retardo.
Helen? Are you actually calling someone out for misogyny?
What is the origin of the word "cunt", when was it first used and how do women know to be offended by it? %0D\
I am female and the word doesn''t affect me any more than "bitch".
Same reason K*ke, S***, N*****r> Honkey, because there''s a history and set of actions that go behind it. You can''t come up with an equal word to cunt, there''s no experience to back it up.
Can someone tell me how to pronounce the words in R108''s post? I don''t know what sound a "*" makes.
Because that's exactly what they are, women don't like the truth.
For the same reason men get offended when they are called a pussy.
But you knew that.
Trolldar r85. This is a straight woman who turns up on any thread where she can get away with saying faggot and then follows up with what she always imagines to be the ultimate insult - that faggots wish they were women so they could have straight men. If you want to feel superior, get a cat or something. You can name him "Faggot" and then you'll always have a reason to say your favourite word.
r85 is a cunt.
Be nicer next time and call her a "gash" instead.
Why do you get offended when straights call you a fag, op?
Any time anyone here brings up the "dick"-"cunt" so-called equivalency, all they are doing is highlighting the fact that men are rarely, if ever, called dicks on DL, while women are called cunts repeatedly. And at least 50% of the time it is clearly being used as a synonym for "female."
This was pointed out in another thread not too long ago, and no one could offer a justifiable explanation for it, probably because there isn't one.
