    about how the many different English words for male and female genitalia have such utterly different connotations.  Both the words you mention have different usages than, for instance, "twat".  "Dick" does not imply the same thing as "prick" or "schmuck."

    This is probably another diary in itself.  But you are correct that gendered insults, especially female-gendered insults, always mean entirely different things depending on the gender of the insultee.
