But calling men the D-word. slang for male  genitalia  is still OK.

robohobo: AverageAmericanGuy: There is so much nasty name-calling in today's politics and political discussions. Go to any thread on the Politics tab about Sarah Palin and you'll find the same word leveled at her. It's disgusting when Democrats do it to Republicans and it's disgusting when Republicans do it back at Democrats.

The Bush years were especially damaging to political discourse. Once the Democrats decided that he was the Worst President Evar™ they turned their backs on working across the aisle and began with the name-calling.

I had hoped that Obama's election would put a stop to that and we could move forward as a coontry again, but the name-calling hasn't abated at all.

Is calling a woman a coont worse than calling a dude an asshole? I've used both, and interchangeably. In my experience,  normal women take the same amount of offense, while womyn rawr libber women take offense to coont like it's verbal rape or something.. Not that I go tossing either about all pell-mell. I just find it interesting. Also, guys react the same for either word.


Is calling a black person a n*gger worse than calling a white one a honky?

Many will laugh if you're offended at honky, because they realize that it's a reaction from a lack of power.  N*gger is usually regarded as worse because of the historical power differential between blacks and whites.

It's damned near the same thing here, men have traditionally held power over women, therefore using terms from a place of power are taken as worse.

log_jammin: The 30-year-old questioned why his post was an issue. He said it was a "private" post, written while he was between jobs. He angrily said my asking about it was a political hit and an invasion of his privacy.
"I have a private Facebook page that was open to my friends only," he said, adding he had 423 friends.
"It's not for a larger audience - there's a reason I have the security settings in place," he said.


1. something said to 423 people isn't private.
2. I'd say that at least one of his "friends" took offense to the comment.
3. being a facebook friend doesn't mean they agree with you politically.
4. way to accept personal responsibility for your comment Mr party of personality responsibility


Honestly, I would not want this guy working on my campaign if he can't figure out something as simple as social media.

That's ridiculous. The idea that epithets are more or less insulting because of who is saying them is, frankly, one of the silliest things I've heard today, and I read a lot of Fark, so that's no compliment. People would laugh just as hard if a white guy called a black guy an oreo. Yet the white guy is coming from a "position of power" according to you.

ShawnDoc: Why do you get to call men 'dick' but can't call a woman a 'coont'?


Asks the guy who types out 'dick' and gets around the profanity filter for the other. It's considered a more vulgar term.

Dick has a lot of meanings, and I believe (I may be wrong) calling someone a dick has more to do with private detectives (specifically Pinkerton thugs). Back in the 1800's one would not want to be outed as a dick, which was short for detective like cop is for copper.
At least that's how I understand it from watching old gangster movies.
coont is just coont.

So what you're saying is that women's genitalia is more offensive than men's genitalia? That's pretty sexist and disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself.

Face it. There are times when referring to a despicable woman with that word is your only option. Although probably not in political advertising.

She does look like a coont. What's the big deal?

Sticks and stones...
