an article

I just read this. I like it. An article, originally from Lustbites, by Kristina Lloyd, on the use of the word cunt in erotica and daily life. I think I'm with Kristina, who is a writer and general cool girl.

A lot of people don't seem to want to recognise the mysogyny behind the word that makes it so loaded. But I don't ever want to be slayed by the word were it to be used against me, nor do I want to be paralysed by disgust and fear in its presence - I think I agree with KL - I'm for demistification rather than remistification. Especially in this world of rude blogging boys.

In this game of calling blogging boys rude, I see your fancy words and raise you a scrotum.

No, you keep your scrotum Maxi, you might need it.

I'm merely making an observation about playing with the rude boys, no judgement!

Even Maxi couldn't shock that author.

jothemama said...

God, no. She's a professional!

Hate hate hate hate hate hate that word. I have used it sparingly online (usually in reference to Twenty), but I am incapable of even saying it in real life.
