In Australian slang, "cunt" can be positive or negative depending on the context, "fucking cunt" is really negative, and "mad cunt" and "sick cunt" are really positive.

STRAYA.

I'd read cobl's comment as a positive thing, but yeah, here in the States, you do NOT use that word unless you want to get slapped in the face. It's very much not seen as a positive word here.

(I've virtually never heard it used among people I know, myself, so I honestly didn't even know it was so heavily frowned upon until I'd hear people saying so on TV, or online.)

I was going to explain that he might be a Glaswegian (where the use of cunt is also strangely positive).

John Howard slayed it on the decks for 11 years here like a you know what, but then they booted his ass. He got a commemorative salad bowl from George Bush though, so there's that.

Who could? Look at the Aussie PrideTM in that last frame.

This just makes me want to come back to America for a third time and just walk around saying cunt all the time

Yes, but he is also viewed with a revisionist hero's glow now, so.

We may be seeing the rise of white identity politics. It doesn't come from nowhere.

Trump is a product of all these things.


I do think Hillary will crush him. I really do. Because he hates powerful women. He likes smart women who work for him, but his misogyny and disdain for some broad in a pantsuit -- which will be amplified during the debates -- will likely render him so unpalatable to women voters that he's DOA. He's already alienated Latinos. Who else has he got other than straight white men with chips on their shoulders?

I hope.
Luckily for all American voters, Mrs. Clinton is running a campaign light on the identity politics

Your last paragraph is well taken, though.

Can we campaign to make cunt as acceptable in the US as it is in Australia?

It is almost pointless to try and have any real discussion in here. People can be so hostile and rude because someone has a different point of view.

Well, ignoring the Trump thing, you do realize you frequently confusingly don't make any sense as you begin to step on everyone else's toes.

You know, like when you tried to tell me what I believe.
