Ok, so hear me out. I would never say “cunt” or even type it up in The Crimson. It’s a triggering word. In fact, My blockmate Jane is so scarred by the word, that she becomes physically ill if she even reads the word “cunt”. Jane reads all of my Op-Eds because she is a good friend, and she’s a History concentrator so she has the time.
It might be hard to stop using the word “cunt.” It sure is for me. Really, really, hard. Life is different now without “that word” (cunt). I mean heck, what are you supposed to call your TF when she doesn’t give you an extension and her name is Ms. Cunt?
If you ask me, for every time you refer to a woman as a “cunt”, you should have to seek out a woman in person and tell her she is not “a cunt.” I shopped three WGS classes last fall.
The word “cunt” is everywhere. I bet you’re even saying the word “cunt” in your head as you read this op-ed. And that’s bad. You are bad.
