Perhaps..........but right about now, I'll bet they're all equally offended.
Which brings me to the thought for the day: why does the word "cunt" prompt such outrage? As a guy I don't believe women are merely being overly sensitive when hearing it. Rather it's a fair reaction to the intentional derision with which it's slung. But it's still just a word ...........admittedly with multiple meanings and connotations. Geni-clature itself is applied to both genders routinely.
The funny part is that the slang depicting genitalia is not used similarly. For guys' parts, you hear most typically: dick, prick, and cock, and of the three, cock is rarely applied to a person (unless you add "sucker".....which changes everything). But calling a guy a dick is not like calling a woman a cunt. Dick is almost playful and can even be leveled with a smile. Dick = jerk. And while it's not a compliment, it carries little to no venom.
When you do want to say a guy is a nasty jerk you use prick. But even prick does not generate the offence cunt does. Probably because the type of guy who gets called a prick is too arrogant to care. He may even be proud to be regarded as a prick by his adversaries.
The feminine counterpart slang consists of pussy, twat, and the aforementioned cunt. Interestingly when pussy is used towards a female, its meaning changes drastically. Referring to a woman as a pussy or more commonly "as" pussy means she is merely a receptacle for a guy's cock. But call a male a pussy and he's a wimp.
Twat means a woman is sort of silly or stupid, but not necessarily the jerk a dick would be. And there's the problem. Women can be jerks but there's no geni-clature to deal with that. Instead, you move right to cunt which is a more offensive equivalent to prick. And maybe the real issue is how women react to being labeled as bitchy. Whereas the guy being called a prick is somehow almost proud of it, a women hates being seen the same way.
So perhaps there are three issues at work: 1. no female dick-equivalent (hey, maybe clit should begin to be used in these situations? "Oh come on, Sally. Now you're just being a clit!" ) 2. women are generally more uncomfortable when being seen as ruthless, and 3. men know the impact of cunt and therefore use it maliciously to browbeat aggressive women.
As always, thoughts, suggestions, and opposing views are welcome!
