  •  a bit of history... (4.00)
    Cunt: A Cultural History -- I stumbled across this a while back, and found it quite enlightening. Perhaps one day there will be a movement to take it back (as there is now with vagina); until then, just remember that you can't have cunnilingus without a cunnus ('vagina').
    •  Wow! That's some link. n/t (4.00)

    •  I do like... (none)
      Completely Unnecessary Neo-Trash, and I've barely scratched the surface of this essay.

      Also, the 'pygmy village' Spoonerism, dated by the author as "(199-)" goes back much farther.  I first remember it from an 'English' or 'Speech' textbook from the mid seventies but I can't place it accurately.:)

    •  Embracing cunt. (none)
      There is a movement to take back the word cunt. It is at least partially due to the great book, "Cunt: A Declaration of Independence" by Inga Muscio. Highly recommended for everyone, including the cuntless half of the population.
    •  oh I know plenty (none)
      of women who consider themselves feminists who use the word 'cunt' - they just don't use it as an insult.  they use it directly as a noun to refer to their own body.  

      but can people kinda see that all insults are insulting?  they're supposed to be insulting if the point is to insult someone.  the more layers of insultingness you can squeeze into an insult, the better.  if that's what you're looking to do in the first place...
