Things You C*N'T Say!

Thunderf00t always does an excellent job eloquently explaining why something is bullocks, and his recent video against political correctness—especially the feminist hypersensitivity surrounding the term “cunt”—is no exception.

I was half-expecting him to play a clip of George Carlin’s euphemisms sketch, but I guess I would have to settle for a Life of Brian reference. Seriously, how is the feminist hysteria surrounding the word “cunt” any less ridiculous that a religious mob stoning someone for merely uttering “Jehovah”? Blasphemy. Political correctness. To-may-to. To-mah-to.

And I never really understood why “cunt” was sexist. Granted, it’s not a word I'd ever use, but how is calling a woman a “cunt” any less offensive or sexist than calling a man a “dick.” They’re both terms that refer to genitalia, and they’re both used against someone who’s acting unbearably obnoxious. So why is one word considered “sexist” but the other not? It makes no sense.

Look at me! Looking for sense in political correctness!
