Quickies In My Kitchen - Cunt - Netflix

Cunt is a vulgar word for the vulva or vagina and is also used as a term of disparagement. Reflecting different national usages, cunt is described as “an unpleasant or stupid person” in the Compact Oxford English Dictionary, whereas Merriam-Webster states that it is a “usually disparaging and obscene” term for a woman or an “offensive way to refer to a woman” in the United States. The Macquarie Dictionary of Australian English gives “a contemptible person”. In Britain, New Zealand, and Australia, it can also be used as a neutral or, when used with a positive qualifier (good, funny, clever, etc.), positive way of referring to a person. The earliest known use of the word, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, was as part of a placename of a London street, Gropecunt Lane, c. 1230. Use of the word as a term of abuse is relatively recent, dating from the late nineteenth century. The word appears not to have been taboo in the Middle Ages, but became taboo towards the end of the eighteenth century, and was then not generally admissible in print until the latter part of the twentieth century. The term has various derivative senses, including adjective and verb uses. Feminist writer and English professor Germaine Greer argues that cunt “is one of the few remaining words in the English language with a genuine power to shock.”

Quickies In My Kitchen - Radio - Netflix

On 6 December 2010 on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme, presenter James Naughtie referred to the British Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt as “Jeremy Cunt”; he later apologized for what the BBC called the inadvertent use of “an offensive four-letter word”. In the programme following, about an hour later, Andrew Marr referred to the incident during Start the Week where it was said that “we won't repeat the mistake” whereupon Marr slipped up in the same way as Naughtie had.
