Slurs I just realized were slurs

#1 Post by j.p. » Sun Jun 24, 2018 3:54 pm

"Cocksucker": Until the uproar with Alec Baldwin I never once associated this expression with gay people, cocks, or suckers. Used it all the time. It simply describes someone who you believed wronged you.

"Cotton picking": Never, until now, associated this with black people. Just a expression that rolls off the tongue nicely used to connote frustration.

"Cunt": While I have always considered this a slur, I have been surprised at the reaction lately to this rather benign descriptor.
It means ditsy women and I used it often to describe males as well.

I will try not to used these expressions in the future. However I can't think of a suitable replacement for "cunt".

Yes, when I was a kid cocksucker was a word you used to insult someone, because real men didn't suck cocks. On a side note, I've always been amazed at how Bart Simpson made "This sucks" common vernacular, given the implication I grew up understanding what it was that was being sucked.
