Does the 'C word' offend you? If so, why?

Yes, I mean C**t! I don't want to write it out in case any offended folks flip out. ;P I'm not the slightest bit offended by it..of course, I am one and not afraid to admit it, so I just laugh at anyone who calls me that and say 'THANKS, I AM!' ha. However, I use the term 'twat' when referring to folks that I dislike and/or piss me off..that, and 'wanker'. I think I was meant to be from the UK or something. lol.

  • So it bothers someone to be called a c***, but it would've okay to be called a b****? It's a word people, the only power it has to offend is whatever power you give it. Call me what you like, I know who and what I am, if I'm being a c*** then feel free to call me one. Obviously it doesn't bother me.

  • Yes, I find it very offensive. I don't think real ladies should talk that way. You are degrading yourself.

  • It doesn't offend me I just think it's gross and it really is a dirty word. I was called this one day by a man that I blocked in for about 5 minutes. I said I was sorry and he mouthed c*nt-I couldn't hear it because he was in his car. I felt horrible after he called me that-I mean don't you think if he would have called me a b*tch he would've got his point across? I remember that day like yesterday LOL!!

  • It doesn't offend ME, but I can see why it would offend other people. It's a very strong word. Like anon 12:21 said, "bitch" would get the point across - not that name-calling is appropriate, lol. ANYWAY, no, it doesn't offend me.

  • It's just a horrible and degrading word for a woman.
