cunt

cunt
• the vagina.
• I have left many of the really obvious slang swear words off of the site to save some time but I feel the inclusion of arguably the 'strongest' word in the English language is necessary. The word can be used to describe a woman's sexual organs, and is very much disliked by nearly all women. This dislike probably stems from the aggressive sound of the word which conjures up a nasty image of the vagina rather than one of a sweet smelling tidy body part like 'quim' or 'muff'. It has been said that the aggressive way in which men use the word is related to vaginal fear, I leave you to make your own mind up there ! The word is mostly used as a derogatory term for someone who you have extreme dislike i.e. "He's a total cunt !" and sometimes more playfully in male company where it's harsh meaning is somewhat watered down i.e. "Don't be a cunt John". All in all it's the one remaining taboo word in the English language today. You never read it in newspapers or hear it on TV (except in the Monty Python 'Travel Agent' sketch where it is masked slightly, "what a silly bunt !") and it's appearance in film is largely confined to the past ten years. How long the 'C word' remains taboo will be interesting to see.
