Is anyone ever prepared for the first time someone calls them a filthy name?
Oh, that last one will get you in trouble if you use it on the wrong woman. Before you hate something, shouldn’t you know what it is?
Oxford Dictionary refers to the word cunt as “a woman’s genitals” You love the word pussy, but you can’t fathom the thought of someone calling it a cunt. Does that make any sense at all? Let’s test that out of a moment with two of the same scenarios.
Scene: Laying in bed with your lover, his hands lovingly embracing you. Fingers are tracing over the soft folds of your womanhood. His voice hoarse, filled with lust.
- Baby, I love the sweet scent of your wet pussy.
- Sweetheart, I’ve never seen a vaginal as lovely as yours.
- I want to fuck that cunt until you beg me to stop!
Can you honestly tell me which one you want to hear in the heat of the moment? Are you the sweet and straightforward housewife who finds sex to be a marital duty to your husband? Or, are you the wanton little cunt who sent the kids off to school so she would call her husband home for a day of fucking?
Remember the first time someone ever called you a name that you found offensive, and your mother said, “Sticks and stones will break your bones, but names will never hurt you?” Was there comfort in knowing that no one could hurt you because of something they said in the heat of the moment? Argument, passion, or general conversation, we use words to convey our feelings to one another.
Let’s pull back the layers of a word and find out what’s inside that dreaded word that women fear so much.
- On the surface, you find a derogatory word used for a promiscuous woman. She might be a whore, a slut, but call her a cunt, and she is suddenly the kind of woman that you keep your husband, children, and family away from knowing.
- The middle of the word digs a little deeper into the foundation of the way the word’s used. Was the phrase cunt used in anger, sexual situations, or maybe someone said it for shock value. Every case will give it a new meaning.
- The bottom layer of the word is the one you, yourself, place on it. A lot of this comes from our upbringing, homelife, and religious beliefs.
A word is just a word until you give it meaning. If we continue to cry about what someone called us, we forget the beauty within. I am a firm believer that a woman owns a vagina, a pussy, and yes, she owns a cunt. So next time someone calls you by that dreaded word, smile. There is no greater honor than to be referred to as one of the most beautiful parts of a female body.
Live well, and remember always to use your words wisely.
James Joyce was one of the first of the major 20th-century novelists to put the word “cunt” into print. In the context of one of the central characters in Ulysses (1922), Leopold Bloom, Joyce refers to the Dead Sea and to
… the oldest people. Wandered far away over all the earth, captivity to captivity, multiplying, dying, being born everywhere. It lay there now. Now it could bear no more. Dead: an old woman’s: the grey sunken cunt of the world.Credit to James Joyce
