Cunt VS Vagina

So many times when I use the C word (Cunt!) women go into a rage, understandably.
But let me explain why by looking at the origins of Cunt and Vagina:


------------------------------------({*})----------------------------------------------

ORIGINS OF THE WORD CUNT

by Gloria Bertonis, M.Ed. from the book Stone Age Divas

"Cuneiform", the most ancient form of writing, derives from "kunta" meaning "female genitalia" in Sumerian of ancient Iraq. "Kunta" is "woman" in several Near Eastern and African languages and a Mother Tongue that is being compiled by linguists today. It was also spelled "quna," which is the root of "queen." Since priestesses were known to be accountants/administrators of Temple of Inanna in Sumeria c.3100 B.C. when Cuneiform was first used, it is highly likely that cuneiform was "the sign of the kunta" who kept the books (clay tablets) for the temple economy/redistribution of wealth that evolved from communal economics of ancient mother-cultures.

So when an abuser calls a woman a "cunt" he is actually calling her a "queen who invented writing and numerals."



ORIGINS OF THE WORD VAGINA

From the Doctors at MedicineNet.com

"The word "vagina" is a Latin word meaning "a sheath or scabbard", a scabbard into which one might slide and sheath a sword. The "sword" in the case of the anatomic vagina was the penis."

------------------------------------({*})----------------------------------------------

Taking that into account I choose between a queen who invented writing and numerals and a holding place for a penis. I chose Cunt. I sing Cunt. I love Cunt.

Thanks Catherine!
This reference doesnt go as far back as Gloria Bertonis did in her research of the word yet the 'Queen' origin pops up again.

I use the word cunt, but admittedly in a very naughty way. Usually to refer to very nasty people. I am, however, equal opportunity and I apply it to EVERYONE who is being nasty and non-loving. Men, women, bosses, drag queens, faulty office equipment, when I stub my toe on something or run into a wall.

Nina, we gotta take it back! :)

We should be using this word to empower ourselves.
It was our word, a word we used to define ourselves, we queens, and then it was taken and turned into something horribly nasty.

we should never use it in that context, never feed that fire. Regardless of the gender/sex you are directing it at, you are still calling them a name directly linked to female genitalia and using it to express something terrible/nasty about that person.

There is nothing terrible about my Cunt, my Cunt is my queen. <3

It's a beautiful word... and it doesn't really sound offensive. It just turned into an offensive word for some reason.
