Although taught traditionally in all good homes (through gesturing, whispering, references to select alphabetic characters, use of acronyms and extreme parental violence) that this word is never to be uttered in polite society, this term is long overdue for a definitional makeover by sheer virtue of its empowerment factor. In the past, this term was utilized by truckers, sanitation workers, bartenders, plumbers (of course...) and others of low birth and social status (all of whom are male...well, occasionally the spurned lesbian...oh, cmon' ladies, I'm a sister too!!! You know it's true!) to refer to a justifiably sexually reluctant woman by analogizing her in a derogatory fashion to that part of a woman's anatomy they would like to call home on a daily basis (never mind that they have been permanently denied access, due to bad behavior, unattractiveness AND/or poor personal hygiene.) Therefore, due to its relegation to usage hell, this term merits resurrection. Why it is that when "dick" is used to refer to a man, it is met by snickers, the usual nods and general apathy, but when "cunt" is is used to refer to a woman, it is always followed by the startle response?! When a man has "balls" he is applauded, but when a woman is a "cunt", she is reviled. I fail to recognize why it is that a spongy, occasionally blood-filled (can you say Viagra?) vestigial organ and a glandular sac engenders more respect and dignity than the sacred passageway of life. You figure it out?! Does the user realize that the utterance of this word impugns the very vessel from whence life sprung forth from their mother's womb? No, I think not! And why, you ask? Because the user is small...very, very small...in the literal, figurative and metaphorical sense of the word. And for this very reason, this term merits the following definition..are you ready? A STRONG, CONFIDENT, EMPOWERED WOMAN WHO TAKES BULLSHIT FROM NO FUCKING MAN...AND I MEAN NO MAN!!!
As Dorothy pedaled past the stately arches of the Chestnut Street Bridge on her Pepto pink-colored Schwinn, she was brutely and viciously knocked to the ground by a masked male marauder. As she strugged to her dainty feet and threw the bike atop her attacker, she stomped it into his nuts, and shouted proudly, "Don't mess with this cunt, you punk-ass bitch!!!"
