The way Billy Connolly uses the C word, or any swear word for that matter, is like poetry. It takes some of the offence out of it, no matter what he's said.

Read once that C*nt relates to the Irish word Cuan, meaning harbour. Not to mention its possible etymological roots in Cu, or Cw, very feminine words.

It's a word probably overdue for reclamation.

On the contrary, I respect them way more which is why I don't pretend to be someone I'm not around them. I'm not calling my partner a c*nt btw. I just use the word in general conversation as it's a great word. i.e "The cupboard's being a right aul c*nt coz it won't close properly", " Ah, my c*nting leap card is out of credit", " you should have seen what this c*nt on boards.ie is after saying.." etc.

I think being ladylike and classy is sexier and more attractive than being a tomboy. I don't want my male friends to be attracted to me sexually so I'll act however I want and won't make an effort to be classy or sexy.
I think he'd lose his attraction to me if he saw me acting so brass. I may be wrong, it's not like I'm a nun around him or completely different. I'm still me, just toned way down.
Apologies if this has been said already but, isn’t your partner the one person in your life who you should/can be your true self around? Isn’t that the point?
