Why's it called taking a dump, when you're actually leaving one?

Why is 'abbreviation' such a big word?

Cats always land on their feet, dropped toast always lands buttered side down. If you strapped a piece of toast buttered side up to a cat's back and dropped the cat, what would happen?

For some reason, it doesn't offend me like it does a lot of other women.  Probably because I've heard it used by men against men far more than against women.  And I always hear it in an English gangster accent. tongue

To me, it means the ultimate jerk. And it's interesting that it was first used in a negative way for that. Wonder when it was first used in reference to a woman's body part.  

That said, I'd react the same way to being called cunt as I would any other name meant to be a cheap insult. I'd think the speaker/writer wasn't clever enough to express themselves.

Who's going to be the first to use Gropecuntelane as their forum moniker?


So I was reading the backlash from when The Onion tweeted something during the Oscars about a sweet little girl being "kind of a cunt, right?" and my question is, why is that racist?  It wasn't extremely funny but I can clearly see what they were trying to do - point out the exact opposite of what she is. It's funny to call sweet things evil. People do it with pets and babies all the time.

I'm maybe super stupid and naive here but why is it racist? Does that mean that every joke or insult made about black people or other non-whites is racist, not just a joke about a person? It's just cunt seems to be used as much for whites as any other colour of people. Like I said, mostly English white or black men against English white or black men. And more to mean extreme asshole than anything racist.

Good luck strapping buttered toast to a cat's back.

Hehehe, indeed.

Must admit the reactions to The Onion's tweet is the first time I've ever heard it suggested that there's a racist element to the use of 'cunt' ... it's an 'across-the-board' insult, as far as I know.
