Alright knobbers, I recently had an altercation with some bint on the basis that i called her a 'stupid cunt' when she knocked beer over me not once but twice in a busy bar. Now i am normally pretty easy going and being bumped into once is something i can deal with as accidents do happen, but when some ignorant tramp does it on the way into the bar and then on the way back you have to say something. The fact she didnt even apologise fucked me off even more, so i called her a stupid cunt, she heard that alright and proceeded to turn round and have a go at me for calling her the dreaded 'C' word and how offensive it was, at which point i pointed out if she was so fucking ignorant to bump into people without realising it and spilling their beer without apologising, then she fucking deserved it. She kept on droning on about the use Cunt to which i replied would you prefer it if i called you a shit licking, father fucking, family cock whore? Apparently that comes across as more offensive and things got a bit more heated after that, decided to move on before my secret thoughts of headbutting her till her face fell apart became a reality. But my question is: Is Cunt a really offensive word? Seems to be only women that whinge about it and this includes bints in the army etc who i have seen do some pretty nasty stuff thi that once they reach the status of SNCO and above think they are 'Ladies' and as such cant abide swearing WTF? and i guess that while i swear a fair bit myself i dont use the 'C' word unless i am pissed off and i guess this is mostly due to the fact that women have fucking moaned about how offensive a word it is when in reality it is just another description for minge? should we refrain from using it and if so does anyone have some better words or descriptions to call people when they piss you off?
