Not sure if I've mentioned this here or not, but I don't say "cunt". I'll write it, but I don't say it -- partially because I figure you need to keep one swear word in reserve for when you really mean it, partially because it's the line in the sand I drew as a younger person to convince myself that I was still a Good Boy, partially just out of habit. Anyway, this isn't about searing insights into my innermost innerness (that's what LiveJournal's for). The point is that it seems I may have to rethink my habits if I'm to fit in with a changing world.
And the world is changing, make no mistake -- you can see it in the great cultural barometer of Hollywood films. It used to be that you could get away with saying "fuck" once in any blockbuster, either to put emphasis on a climactic moment (off the top of my head, Armageddon and Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion) or sometimes just as a throwaway (Army of Darkness springs to mind). Now it seems the "one fuck" rule has been replaced with the "one cunt" rule. Witness the likes of Blade 3, Domino and now Inside Man ("You really are a magnificent cunt" -- fabulous delivery) -- same phenomenon, different profanity.
"Cunt" is the new "fuck" -- what a time to be alive.
