It depends on your audience, calling someone a cunt in the US will make them recoil in horror, in the UK or Australia it can be a term of endearment. Racist epithets are always a safe bet.

It's always been very disturbing to me that there are countless (sex and promiscuity related) words to insult women with, but only a few you can insulta a man with.

That exchange student must've been a bit posh, because in common UK/Australian vernacular cunt is an extremely flexible word, from an insult to calling someone a true friend. I guess douche could be a matching US insult, yet again something to do with female genitalia.

If you're after imaginative insults, look no further than the Scottish; they've got it covered, although they're not that easy to understand (unless translated or you've read a lot of Irvine Welsh).

He's right.  There are contexts where it can be less offensive, but it's not the same as when a bogan uses it.  It's likely that your UK friends just think you're a cunt.

Wouldn't be surprised as they're cunts, too. But I have to admit that it's more prevalent with the Ozzies.

I am from the UK though, it's 100% an insult, nowhere near as serious as in the USA but it's not a nice word to call someone. In Australia on the other hand it's just like saying 'mate' at the end of a sentence so it's different.

OK, thank you for clearing that up, now I feel like a twat - but then cunt would work as a general insult towards any non-Australian English. Add racial epithets to the mix and you can probably get a rise out of most people.

But in the UK you can call a guy a cunt and not be a weirdo, whereas in the US, you’d get strange looks before being punched in the face.

                             In today's Word on Wurst news:

Wurst luck: half-eaten sausage helps German police solve cold case

Inquiry into 2012 burglary is revived after French police turn up a DNA match for unrelated crime

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2021/mar/12/wurst-luck-half-eaten-sausage-helps-german-police-solve-cold-case

German police say they have solved a nine-year-old burglary case after DNA found on a half-eaten piece of sausage matched that of a man detained in France over an unrelated crime.

Police in the western town of Schwelm said on Thursday the sausage belonged to the victim, and the suspect – a 30-year-old Albanian citizen – appeared to have helped himself to a bite during the break-in in Gevelsberg in March 2012.

Immer wieder erstaunlich, wie wenig Respekt dieses Zigeunerpack vor dem Privateigentum ordentlicher Bürger hat. Alles wird geklaut, was nicht niet- und nagelfest ist, auch ganze Scheunen. Und das alles unter dem Deckmantel einer angeblichen Armut. Eine Sauerei ist das!

In Danish you can say “kraftedeme” which in old Danish means “cancer eat me”.
