  •  I confess I don't get what you're not getting (none)
    about this.  "Cunt" refers to female genitalia; using "cunt" to refer to someone who is heartily disliked equates female genitalia to something heartily disliked--ergo, female genitalia are being referred to as something heartily disliked.  Feels like you're just arguing to argue.

    •  Bitch isn't... however (none)
      and that would have been a better example to use (especially since that is the word that started this meta discussion).

      Again, I get it perfectly well. You don't seem to be getting what I am talking about.

      To equate bitch or cunt as an axiom to apply to females as a category, is as flawed and extrapolation as equating dick to be an axiom to apply to any and all penises, hence all males.

      It is spurious leap.

    •  BTW... You presume I don't get something here. (none)
      I get what you and many others are saying, so to confess that you don't get what I am not getting is a flawed assumption from the outset.

      cheers,

      •  Well, your logic is not really making sense, (none)
        it's sort of tangential at times, but whatever.
