    What? All I was saying is that both people would be extremely offended and that's why that argument is bad.
    I literally stood here for a minute not knowing what to say because it went way over your head.

    That's my entire point, it's not a bad argument. People will be offended if you call them bad things.

    It's on an international forum. If you want to keep nonamericans out of it then discuss it somewhere, where nonamericans can't get into.

    Of course you still have not defended your claim that cunt was used or is being used in direct opression as opposed to being more of a word that's sitting next to it.

    You don't have cunt laws, you don't have people talking about cunts as a social group. When it's used, it's used directly against the person in question. It's is both derisive and offensive. But border between both of them tends to fairly small.



    So it was bothering him and made the son up. That still doesn't make him a misogynyst. If it was a guy and he called him a dick, fag or whatever he wouldn't be a manhater, homophobe either. He'd just be using a random insult that fit the situation.
    lol, so fag isn't homophobic now ? Go tell that to the sexual minority kids who killed themselves after being harassed with that word. oh wait you cant because they're dead.
    How about you talk to the depressed ones and tell them to get over it because fag is just a regular insult and means nothing !

    the word fag currently is shifting over to mean something else, a lot of people already don't associate it with homosexuals anymore.

    motherfucker, men can't be offended by you bringing attention to the fact that they're men
    What the fuck? Woman that can be offended by bringing attention to the fact that she's woman is insecure of her gender. And insecurities are not something to be carefully protected from reality.

    hi buddy

    a good fraction of your posts are unwarranted snipe posts, insults, and "STOP POSTING XD"

    help yourself before you make snide judgements

    although i've told you this about half a billion times, along with other people as well from my understanding

    you should just look at yourself dude
    Why are you constantly trying to give me an intervention about the way I post. I get it, you're easily offended by what I say. Get the fuck over it and deal with the topic on hand.

    You know for someone who is claiming to have the high ground, you sure are doing exactly what you're claiming me of doing.

    Edited:

    Simply because you believe the word can be used in another context does not change its meaning in its targeted context.
    And the meaning of its targeted context does not change the fact that not everyone who says it says it with that in mind.

    Jesus christ it's the context, I'm white, and when I hang out with my black friends I don't get jumped for saying nigga because they know there wasn't any hate behind those words. However, the way the word cunt was obviously an expression of anger and hostility.

    the context is that a michigan representative called a woman a cunt days after giving an unconstitutional gag-order on a fellow representative because she said the word "vagina" during deliberations on abortion


    that is the context.

    you stray away from the 'topic at hand' with snide insults (and some fancy assumptions to top it off) and you flaunt how witty you can be

    when that occurs, you don't continue, you think about it; if i make a piss-poor post that people throw their comments at, i think about it at the very least, and try to take in and act upon their critique

    that is actually the point, this kind of thing depends on where you are

    culture and language is different in different parts of the world

    If this had happened in Australia I'd be calling it stupid because the word cunt is used across the board (more toward men though), but I don't know how the word is used in America. Everyone in here needs to stop trying to judge this shit when they don't even live in America.

    In the US, "motherfucker" can be a positive or neutral exclamation in certain contexts. (e.g. Badass Motherfucker.)

    "Cunt" is wholly negative here, and carries extremely derisive implications for women. Nobody in the US uses "cunt" as a compliment, and it is rarely used in regards to men. It is synonymous to "bitch" or "whore."

    That one seems to never stop surprising me. I mean, "motherfucker" implicates very unpleasant meaning, and yet it's almost free of actual out-of-context meaning. Nice lingual culture you have there, guys.

    I'm curious, is there any use of word "dick" (or any other obscene term for penis) towards women in the US?

    Extremely rare and likely satirical.

    Personally I've never heard a woman being called by a male gendered slur. If "bastard" is used in reference to a woman it's probably used literally, and not in the sense of a slur.

    We usually use non-gendered profanity when we don't want to imply gender. "Asshole," "shithead," "motherfucker," etc. "Prick" is the closest thing we have to a commonly used gendered slur, but it's mostly used toward men. "Cocktease" is a feminine slur, despite the first syllable, implying the woman is a flirt who doesn't put out.

    Funnily enough, the english language has no commonly-used gendered slurs for men who either have lots of sex or have no sex, and yet it has tons of slurs for both sexually active women (whore/slut) and for women who don't have sex at the drop of a hat (cocktease).

    You've mistaken me for someone else, I don't call my friends cunts. That's highly obscene and offencive word in Russian, it even sounds sickeningly, "peez-da", with stressed "a" and hard "d".

    Even more funnily, Russian alternative for "whore/slut" can be both used against women and men. It's more obscene, though. What I find funny, is that Russian language relies a lot heavier on gender than English, and yet most of our obscene abusive words are universal.

    Sorry, thought you were the Australian.

    I prefer Spanish obscenity but that's just me. They have a word for everything. None of thus multiple-meanings ambiguous shit. There's a words for both "stupid jackass" and "evil jackass".

    Sexually active men in the US are usually referred to as "player" or "gigolo," which carry more positive bro-fist implications than negative shame-on-you implications.

    U.S. culture high-fives men who have sex with lots of women and shames women who have sex with lots of men. There's a pretty big double-standard when it comes to sexuality. Women are called whores when they have sex with lots of people and ice-queens when they don't. Men can just sort of do whatever they want with their junk and nobody judges them (save for homosexuality, which is a whole other issue.)

    Calling someone a cunt is not sexist, because it is just a way of insulting someone on no specific feature or stereotype- Same thing with dick. However, there ARE insults that are frequently used that are sexist, such as calling someone a whore or a slut. These perpetuate stereotypes, which cunt does not.

    Cunt perpetuates stereotype in the US usage.
