To most Americans, I suspect hearing the word cunt is like looking at a medieval leper who also happens to be covered in boils and suppurating sores and pustules. It’s a word that, when mentioned, comes far closer than you want it to. Close enough for you to see the bits that have fallen off.
“You don’t like it, do you America? Every time I say it, there’s women who go, ‘Ugh, Jeeeesus!’ You just don’t like it, and you accept it from me because ‘Oh, he’s foreign and doesn’t know better.’ I do know better, I just don’t give a fuck. You’ve got worse words in America…You don’t hear me say ‘motherfucker.’ It’s ridiculous, that word. The word motherfucker is much more offensive than cunt …Cunt is in Chaucer and Shakespeare. It’s the oldest swearword in the world. It’s lovely. Motherfucker is so brash — let’s break down the word motherfucker. It’s a boy fucking his mum…in the cunt. It’s horrible.”
