Being a cunt.

"....I appeared to be pretending to be a cunt. Why was I doing that? There are enough cunts in the world already. We don't need anymore. The only kind of pesron who would pretend to be a cunt probably is a cunt. This faux-cuntiness was a cunt's game"

Caitlin Moran, moranthology, page 12, 2012.

This is a quote in regards to a review in 1994 where she wished the singer of Ned's Atomic Dustbin dead in Melody Maker. Anyway It was probably worth it just to write that 18 years later.

In regards to the use of the word cunt it seems people from the UK and Australia have a very different use of the word compared to Americans. For us (Aussies & Poms) it's a wanker who is an arsehole and could be a man or woman. Whereas in the States it seems reserved for the most misogynist men to use towards a woman to denigrate her to being of use for only one thing- her cunt. I've been watching dvds of the Sopranos and boy when it gets used in that it seems filled with so much hate and resentment towards women. Someone said to me the other day 'the way you say cunt it almost sounds nice.' When Americans say it, it seems way more offensive. Am I right?

I agree with Caitlin that pretending to be a cunt is being a cunt. Make of that what you will.

Anyway I reckon this is a fantastic pop tune as good as anything the much overrated Nirvana ever did. This'll get yer party started every time. Style and taste are overrated. C'mon Caitlin you know you like this.
