Eat a bag of boobs, LeMel.

All right, I have to go to choir rehearsal. I will try not to substitute any Latin religious text with "eat a bag of dicks."

It's been glorious discussing profanity with you all on this fine evening.

Now that's a niche insult if I've ever heard one.

Enjoy choir rehearsal, asshole.

That was a legitimate laugh out loud moment. Ha!

This thread got fun!

Damn hipsters .

The "MF" word definitely works. It's not one I use, but done right it can halt a conversation/argument pretty quickly.

Right. It's generally supposed to be another "gay"-type insult.

I don't think most women would take too kindly to someone saying that to them. My guess is a man who says that to a woman is risking being slapped across the face.

This is me, too. I'd NEVER have the guts to say these words right to the faces of the people I'm using them towards. I say them in the safety of friends and family, after the person I want to insult walks away. Like I said, I rarely curse offline-I feel more at ease writing/typing out my insults rather than trying to say them out loud. It always surprises my friends when they hear me cuss.

Cursing someone out in your head is fun! I use that method most often at work if I'm dealing with a pain in the ass customer. Polite smile and tone as I try and deal with them, but in my head I'm finding all sorts of ways to tell them to fuck off.

(Customer service employee of the month, yeah!)

I usually go with "asshole", or "dumbass", or the ever-fun "dipshit" if I'm insulting someone's intelligence (the last of those I save for someone who really pisses me off. Like, say, Santorum ). I've heard a lot of the other ones people brought up here, but I've never used them myself, fun as some of them may be. Otherwise I revert to the usual "moron"/"idiot" sort of insult.

I've been trying to steer away from dick, asshole, or pussy because they're a bit over generic/cliche. Bitch is meaningless- am I your bitch or am I being a bitch? Am I too weak-minded or too strong-minded?

When I'm really marinating in someone's stupidity, I reach for something like "you are truly a god damned idiot".

Anyway, the real objective out of all this I'd hope would be to make sure all headline writers are aware that some common phrases like "gypped" both can have intentional/unintentional racist aspects, and that they are cliches you lazy morons think of something better.

Just wanted to add my two cents.

I use "cunt" all the time with my (male) mates. Thailand was just a constant stream of swear words and insults, for two straight weeks.

really? Wasn't it all about reclaiming the word or something? I honestly can't name that many hip-hop songs (outside of De La Soul) that don't use the word "nigga". I can't imagine hip-hop without it. I'm always listening to it, and a lot of my friends do as well, so it's become part of our vernacular.

I think the thing a lot of people forgot when people use these words is that in a lot of cases there is no malicious intent. It's like when Kobe called the ref a faggot. Does anyone really believe he was making a derogatory statement on the ref's perceived sexuality? It was a heat-of-the-moment outburst. I'd find it hard to believe whoever wrote the headline did so maliciously. And I think it's telling that this was a huge story the world over, but Lin just shrugged his shoulders at it.

People need to stop being offended on behalf of others.

That's kinda fucked up, dude. Even putting aside any offensiveness or whatever, there are few things more pathetic than a bunch of skinny white kids running around calling each other nigga. -5 points for Friggin Cobbler

Um, YEAH, that's exactly what he was doing. It was meant to be derogatory, as in only a gay man would make such a call.

I don't think so. Pretty easy to say something you don't mean in a situation like that.

I more meant repeating lines from songs or skits, like "y'aint got no yeezy nigga!" we don't actually greet each other with "yo nigga!"

But I should probably stop, before I dig a deeper hole.

I realize how idiotic this sounds, but I feel like when someone says 'fag', it isn't necessarily meant as a homophobic slur; it's meant more like jerk or ass. But when someone says 'faggot', it's meant the other way

I guess that's a little better.... I guess.... but still, would you say it if there was a black man in the room?

The word is meant to be a cut down, correct? So ask yourself why?

Is he really just calling him a 'bundle of sticks'?
