RECLAIM IT!

Cunt is an English slang word that refers to the human female genitals. It is considered by some to be the one of the most offensive words in the English language...

That's why I turned it into a handbag.



My mom gave me the idea for this actually. My Step father called her a cunt one night during an argument. And after my mom told me about it I thought, why not go with it?

Just like Bitch, some words need to be reclaimed.

If some guy gets pissed off because you are a powerful, strong, independent woman and he calls you a Cunt to make him feel better about himself, then smile and say THANK YOU!

Mwahaha! I can imagine the tutting you're going to get in the street. Good for you, it's just a word. Strangely, it's a word I only ever use to descibe men.

Hah! I love it.
Glad to know I'm not the only one who uses this word to describe guys.

I love the bag! It sounds like your mom could benefit from some of the domestic violence resources that a commenter left on your previous post. Obviously we know nothing about her/your situation though. ;)

See, now I would never take this bag out in public either, which just goes to show that the word does need to be reclaimed. Are you gonna rock it? I can just imagine people on the street-- "Betty, does that young man's bag say what I think it says??" LOL

Hey, are you making that Sesame sweater from MagKnits? I just started it.

Personally, I perfer to say C U Next Tuesday or C U Next Time. It's polite and they don't know I'm calling them, well, um, that word.
