Politcally Incorrect Musings
Offensive Language and a philosophical point of view.

I warn you, I will be using offensive language.
Tonight, I have had a first. I called a woman a "cunt". I have never used that word to describe a person, of any gender, before. Some others took great offence to it as they heard me say it. I stood by my claim. The individual, in my opinion, just has a nasty attitude toward me regardless of my civility and generosity. Tonight, I was being both civil and generous and was attacked for it. I stood by, and still stand by, my statement.

Later, tonight, it struck me as to the oddity that this term, "cunt", should inspire such offence in others. Why? Do we not call men a colloquialism of their privates when they are of a poor disposition? When men are abrasive, rude, vindictive, and short, do we not call them a "dick" or a "prick"? Yet, the weight carried for a reference to female genitalia seems to carry more weight when used in the *exact same fashion* against a woman for the *very same reasons* we call men "dicks". Why is that?

Double standards - aren't they wonderful? Not!

I think "Cunt Hairs" would be a good name for a punk rock band.
