Khunt...Say it...It's Funny

Cheers y’all!!

Seems that some folks are in an uproar over the satirists at The Onion for referring to 9-year old actress Quvenzhané Wallis as a, “cunt.”

Many people are OUTRAGED and have asked for the writers to RESIGN, IMMEDIATELY!!

Let’s get into the crux and impetus of the matter of said “offensiveness” today of a couple of words, shall we? Cool.

Let’s take a look at the word, “cunt”…

Pfffffft. Big deal. You know where the word comes from?

Cunt means, vagina or vulva, etc. It is clearly derived from words from many ancient Indo-European, Hittite, Sanskrit, and Latin-based Romance languages.

Even Chaucer used it in a well accepted sense in, The Canterbury Tales (The Miller’s Tale, line 90, "queynte") to describe the vagina.

It’s been around for centuries, but exactly what happened?

Someone, no doubt a cunt woman, decided along the way (and in lieu of brevity I am not going to get into the details) that the word, in spite of its history and etymology, was a derogatory term for a woman.

Whatever…

Most women I know do have a vulva, but if that upsets you…Have at it, but most men want it, you control it, and you’re not enjoying the full power of your cunt.

Now, let us turn our attention to the word, “nigger”. “Haaaaaaaaaghast. No he didn’t!!?” Yeah, I said that.

This word comes from Latin (niger) and a Spanish derivative (negro) meaning black. It was for centuries, merely a colorful adjective.

It referred to dark-skinned people, mainly Africans. But guess what happened?

Someone, probably some black bitch er... cunt...er African-American decided along the way, that the term, in spite of its history and etymology, is a derogatory word for people of dark skin and/or African descent.

Whatever…

I know…I know...It's offensive because “black” people aren't all black or, “niger."

Yeah, well white folks aren’t all white. Some are pasty white, pale, and/or more of a peach color or variations thereof.

Whatever…

It’s just a general description, people!! Does that really annoy you? If it does? Have at it, and revel in your racial superciliousness.

Listen, I am not advocating the use of the aforementioned words, but try this…

If a person calls you a cunt, just laugh and say, “Yeah, I have one and you’ll never get it.”

If someone calls you a nigger, just laugh and say, “You are very observant.”

My point is this…

Derogatory terms are only derogatory if we lend them credence.  If one believes in him or herself, these words shouldn't have any effect.

In fact, if someone directs either of these terms at you in an angry sense, you probably don’t give a shit about that person anyway.

People who use terms in an attempt to elicit an angry response are prime examples of this adage:

“The greater the ignorance, the greater the dogmatism.”

If we react in an angry way towards the slings and arrows of those types of slurs, we devolve into a level of their ignorance, especially if their words are baseless.

If however, we believe in ourselves, walk away, and without response, realize that we are good people…

Over time, those words used in a derogatory fashion will lose their effect, and much like the original meaning of those words, will fade into the past.

But let me tell you…When Quvenzhané Walli had her name read as a Best Actress nominee  She yukked it up and clapped for herself like a little school girl, and well... acted like a cunt.  A nigger cunt at that.

Cheers!!

Those words are never used in the historical context though. They're used in the most offensive and hurtful context and to insult people. Oh and so the person who said them can say "OOOOO .. Look how edgy I am."

The Onion staff did say "We can call her a cunt cause she has one, that's cool."

They did have comedic reasons for using that word though, which were lost on most people.

I almost neveг leaѵe a responѕe, but I read a feω of thе comments here "Khunt...Say it...It's Funny".
I аctually do have a few questіonѕ for you if іt's okay. Could it be simply me or does it appear like a few of these remarks appear like they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
