Reclaiming Language

when asked what the most offensive word in the english langauge, one of my friends responded:

i love the word cunt, i recently freed myself from arbitrarily not saying it. now i cun’t get enough!
nigger is pretty offensive. i’d feel a lot more comfortable calling a black guy a cunt than a nigger. but i still wouldn’t call a woman a nigger. i won’t even say “nigger” behind someone’s back.
i think “cunty” is great, like, “don’t be so cunty.” it’s reclaiming the word, has nothing to do with gender
