United Kingdom Privilege (NSFW)

you can keep the word fanny
yinz bunch of Jagoffs

As an American with a lineage that's about a quarter Scotch-Irish I suppose I can literally just say one letter.

Perhaps one at a time? "C." "U." "N." "T."

Or back to back? "C. U. N. T."

Maybe I can just spell it? "C-U-N-T."

This feels a bit unfair, if I'm being honest.

I suppose I can just let other folks, like an entire nation, say it for me.

Caramel Frappe:
I never swear, but only because I find it to sound bad on my end... as in, I don't sound logical when I say it. So I never speak of such words and describe things differently. For example the common person may say-

Random Person: "AAHHHH F*** I STUBBED MY TOE!! GOD D*** IT!!"

Me" "OOOoowwwwwwwww ... holy crap, my toe! I hit it quite hard and now i'm in sheer pain!!"

... Lame I know.

Hey at least you communicate it, I just say "Chingado" in a really deadpan but annoyed tone everyone just thinks I'm just minorly annoyed, one time I accidentally got burned with a hot pan and my skin got sticked to it so when I dropped it and it took a piece of my skin with it everyone thought I was just annoyed that I accidentally dropped and no one even realized I had charred skin hanging from my arm and pus was coming out where the skin used to be, it was disgusting but I was to busy to stop working at the time.

You come from the land that gave us Trailer Park Boys. If anything, I would think this would be right up your fucking alley. :O

Congrats, guys! I'm glad to hear that by being white privileged men from a country that has oppressed people around the world for centuries, both male and female, you can freely use a word that is exclusively a derogatory term for female genitalia. Hell, why don't you just give yourselves the pass to use the n-word whenever you feel like it and toss around some homophobic slurs while you're at it? I see no flaws with this plan.

Hey man no need to be a racist cunt about it.

Well, that's one way of getting me to read an entire forum thread. (Quite the entertaining read, mind; good show, old cunts).

Also a great way of making the word "CUNT" lose all meaning.

Yup. This looks like bait. Just back quietly away...

You have cunt, but we have spaz. That one is pretty benign here but is pretty controversial in the land where people drink tea and never see the sun.

Hey, that's not entirely fair. We get to see the sun anytime we want, in pictures and Television. Westerns on a high brightness and colour setting is how I work on catching my lushious rays!
There is definately a lot of tea here though. Not sure who keeps leaving it, but can't complain.

I'm Scottish and we use Cunt as a friendly term as well an insult:

"Paul? Aye, Pauls a good cunt".
"Paul? Aye, he's a fucking cunt".

We just don't see the problem with the term at all. Saying that, Kevin Bridges (comedian) said it better than most that we use swearing in place of punctuation. :)

I kinda hate that I can't bring myself to type it either. Too repressed I guess. I was going to do something like "Critical Miss" more like "C***able Miss" but my prudish childhood just keeps winning out...

Check your privilege, Cunt.

OT: Surprised nobody has caused genuine uproar yet about this comic seemingly implying that Ireland is part of the UK.

Sorry. What I was trying to say was, I'm pleased to live among people who cannot use that word.

But it's only a word.

A vulgar word. The fewer of those I have to listen to on a daily basis, the better for me. Still, I must admit that even without that word, people in the US really are no less vulgar in the way some of them speak. Also, it somehow sounds less vulgar when said in the UK.

I cunt remember Ireland oppressing anyone actually. We just weren't that kind of a cuntry.

Redlin5:
I just love Gavin's passport.

Also I'm wondering what Canadians have a card for...

Generally, it's one for people's blind trust.

Quite the powerful card to have, use it well.

Until like, two years ago when I saw a kerfuffle on the internet about someone (in America, obviously) using the "slur", not only was I not aware of that perception, I actually thought the insult was gendered male. I'm not sure if, in the whole 19 years of my life before that, I'd ever even heard a woman being called a cunt, and I wasn't exactly sheltered from swearwords.

Although, actually based on that I think we can make a rule that works for both sides of the pond; "cunt" only becomes a slur when you're actually using it to refer to a woman, and in any other context is just an ordinary swearword, although I think it is also the strongest normal swearword the language has, other than compound ones like "motherfucker" and the elder swear.

You're giving simple words too much influence over your life. "Cunt" has many different meanings depending on the context, only some of which would be considered vulgar.

MiracleOfSound:

I had to read this 3 times before I realised the puns at play. Well played, ya cunt.

Seriously though, it would be ridiculously hypocritical for us Irish people to be systematically oppressing others considering our history.

blackrave:
Fuck this noise!
Notion that someone may "own" the word is idiotic.
Either it's ok to say by anyone, or it isn't... you cunts.

Jandau:
I'm from the non-english part of the word, I can call you things that would make your ears bleed in languages you can't begin to comprehend! :D

Also, love the crayon-drawn Irish passport.

Hehe, same here. I'm from Sweden, and the Swedish language has this beautiful and extremely handy trait that lets you combine almost any two words to form a new one. It opens up a whole new world of insults. :D Heck, we even have at least one song that is entierly compsed of one long string of insults. It's beautiful.

Hey, dicknugget, it isn't something unique to swedes :D

Combining two words you can do in any language, sure, but it's not always "legal" in accordance to grammatical laws. It is in Swedish. Write dicknugget as one word in an english text editor and it'll complain. Write, say... nötjävel (nut-devil. It doesn't need to make sense) in a Swedish text editor and it won't. At least as long as it's properly programmed. ;)

Pyramid Head:

But not to anywhere near the level that cunt apparently is in the US. Yes, you'll rarely hear spaz (or spastic) being used any more (if anything, it's more dated than controversial). However, I've never seen anyone reluctant to even type/say it, or use a euphemism like 's-word' or s***, the same can't be said for cunt.

Interesting. This is news to me. I'm all ears.

Windknight:
this really needs English To American

Though I have noticed a certain English slang word for cigarette generally does not get used when something is intended for a wider audience as people are very much aware of its homophobic connotations in america.

Though it does give me a great anecdote about a friend of my mother getting herself in trouble on an american holiday by walking into a shop and asking for 20 (BLEEP)s. Luckily, her husband was american and cleared things up for her.

I remember in Shawn of the Dead they had to change a line because they thought americans would get confused. In the scene with the zombie in the garden one of them says "Shes drunk!" instead of "Shes pissed!".

Well you are a right cunt arnt you. dont dare say ireland is a part of the uk or that an irish man is british, i dont care if your joking or not it is fucking offensive

Irish citizens aren't British any more than US citizens are Canadian. Comic is good, OP is being a cunt.

I really like that so far, the only thing that have offended people in the comments is the notion that an Irishman is "British". And he's not. You cunt.

That and the "British Isles" thing are the only two types of bait guaranteed to work with Irish people on the internet.

And I'm just partly Irish...

And just to be clear, Webster defines "British" as "The people of Great Britain or the Commonwealth of Nations". (I.e. not someone from the British Isles, like the people of Ireland or Northern Ireland, the latter of which is in the UK (for the time being), not GB.)

Yeah but Northern Ireland is a part of the Commonwealth (although that is a very strange and expansive definition since it means Indians, Australians and Canadians are all "British" too, which they aren't).

I never knew it was a legal requirement in Ireland to draw your own passport.

White Americans may not get to use "charged" swears, but we do get to use British swears without people thinking they are swears at all. Hence why Disney heroes Jack Sparrow and Loki get to say "bugger" and "quim". It doesn't count if the kiddies don't know what it means!

Loki? A hero? Have you watched the same movies I did?

He's just misunderstood.

Andy Shandy:

I wonder how many people will come into the cuntments comments just to say cunt.

It's not like I can blame them, it is rather cunthartic cathartic

Nobody in the world can say cunt like Peter Capaldi.

Can't find a clip of the glorious "Fuck off out of my house you miserable Scottish cunt" from Skins, alas.

Also, the other Big C.

Bob_McMillan:
What exclusive words do we Asians get then? :(

What part of Asia?

If there's a specific insult for people who're bad at Starcraft, that might be the one :D

As a Canadian I can say that the study from a few years back which found that Canadians swear more then anyone else is true, which really conflicts with the stereotype we have of being nice, polite people.

What is a "quim?"

*Quick google search* ...ohhh I see! Never heard that before :) Time for social experimentation!

Wait, so when Loki said "you mewling quim" he was really saying "you whiny cunt". Oh my...

...I love it.

That's arguable, quim isn't particularly well used and hasn't developed the meanings that dick, cunt, twat etc have when used as an insult, it is literally just a term for vagina. It isn't interchangeable with cunt, at least in the British sense. That said, from what I can tell (I might be wrong) the American usage of the word cunt is basically saying "you are nothing but a vagina, that is your only use", so I suppose referring to her as a quim lit. "vagina" could fit the US usage of the word.

I think us Aussies use that word more than you Poms!

I would very much like to see the Monty Python "Spam" sketch but with every "Spam" replaced with "Cunt".
