It is. I could go on and on in a rant about the sexism of it all, but I guess that's more of an FYM topic.

True, around here.

Ask Axver and he'll probably disagree because of the context it's used in where he's from.

Ah yes that is true too. I forgot about the name calling.

Not what the titles can say but maybe ease the mods on what we say in here. Just throwing that idea out there.

Oh, I know. It's well-intentioned, I just don't think it would make any difference in all honesty.

To my ears, "bitch" is worse than "cunt". I find "cunt" more generalised, as the harshest personalised insult for somebody or something that is rather intensely disliked (and although it's a word I rarely use, I'd say I've more frequently used it with reference to males), though still less strong a word in general than "fuck". "Bitch" feels like it has more overtly sexist overtones and it's the swear word I avoid more than any other.

Fuck is used on a daily basis in America, by almost everyone I know. It's not nearly as bad as cunt. I dont even like to type that word. It's sick and disgusting and I really dont care to see it on the main forum page every 5 seconds, and I'm sure the majority of this forum wouldnt appreciate it either.

Shit, bitch, fuck, damn, crap etc.. common used words here. The other, no.

Take as an example from today. My camera died just before I was about to take an amazing shot that I knew I would have to wait 20 minutes I didn't have to replicate. I blurted out "you cunt!" at the camera. Slightly less harsh than "fuck!", and not sexist like "you little bitch!" would've been.

Right, and that's probably normal for you and most people down there. Understood.

For me, and most of us over here, our reaction would have been something like "you little fuck!" or "fuckin' piece of shit"...

or what elfa said "motherfucker" is a good example.

I'd say the daily level of usage here probably isn't much different. I rarely hear anybody use "cunt", and my aforementioned usage of it today is quite possibly the first or second time it's left my mouth this year. I suspect part of the reason why it's not viewed quite as harshly as "fuck" is precisely for that reason - it slips a little off the radar due to more infrequent usage.

But fair enough. Like I said, my surprise at the edit (which, I emphasise, is surprise, not objection) is based on the fact that since Fucking stayed, I thought Fire Cunt would too.

Agreed. It's one of the few swears I absolutely refuse to use. That and racial slurs.
