The word cunt. how does it make you feel? Hurt? Disgusted? Annoyed? Im using the ‘c-bomb’ in a play im doing soon and we had some negative feedback about me using the word.
To me the word cunt means vagina. It’s never shocked me(well apart from the shock i feel that people are disgusted by the word) I think i can safely assume that people who dislike the c word use words such as ‘dick’, ‘cock’ or even ‘willy’. So why do they hate the word for female anatomy so much!? I understand it has had negative connotations in the past and it is a very aggressive word, due to how bluntly it comes out of your mouth (as in ‘cuntey’ sounds alot nicer and less aggressive) But it genuinely usets me that people, especially women, hate this word so passionately.
So im hoping that by writing this, talking about it in my play, wearing my cunt necklace and by being me, i will help educate and reclaim the word, for our lovely lady gardens
