Specifically, how (at least in North American works) it's the one word nobody ''ever'' uses unless they want to break someone down and in the process make themselves look like a total and complete JerkAss. Even shows comfortable with using [[SevenDirtyWords other swear words]] hesitate to use it, and Internet filters sometimes block other words that happen to [[ScunthorpeProblem inadvertently contain it]]. Also known as "the [[TWordEuphemism C word]]". In North America, it is among the worst insults in the English language. It's virtually always used to express bitter, mocking contempt, and is more likely to be directed at women than at men. Considering that the word's literal meaning is simply "female genitalia," the extremely negative connotations attached to "cunt" have UnfortunateImplications. In America and much of the English-speaking world, "pussy" typically serves as a more commonly used "cute" slang word for that part of the female anatomy, though this usage has rendered it rather vulgar and hence a frequently used word in foul-mouthed rap songs. In Canada, New Zealand, and Australia, the still relatively innocuous "beaver" is sometimes a more common euphemism, though like "pussy" this leads to a lot of {{Double Entendre}}s and the occasional InnocentInnuendo from HavingAGayOldTime.

* Its inclusion in ''LadyChatterleysLover'' was a major issue in the Penguin Books obscenity trial of 1963. A much more recent BBC play about the trial included an uncensored reading of the passages in question. Post-watershed, naturally.

** This is also a [[ViewersAreGeniuses homage]] to the fact ''FinnegansWake'' author James Joyce is a main character; Joyce rejoiced in word-plagues like this.

Annie Social has no problem with "nasty tricks" because she admits she and Kimber Lee do use them but also reminds people WSU stands for "Women Superstars Uncensored" and so welcomes anyone who really thinks they are cunts to just come out and say it.

* In GeorgeRRMartin's ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', the word is occasionally dropped. Most notably, Asha is attacked in a skirmish by a clansman who shouts the word every time he strikes at her, until he eventually pummels her into unconsciousness. He later finds her as a prisoner of war and apologizes for his insulting language, [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments though not for trying to kill her]]. While a prisoner, she's repeatedly degraded by Suggs, a particularly vile knight, who likes throwing the word around. Asha remarks, "It was odd how men like Suggs used that word to demean women when it was the only part of a woman they valued."

* There's a ''YTheLastMan'' comic where the leader of the Amazons gets called "cunt" by a girl she's taken prisoner and calmly explains the origins of the word and claims its origins don't justify how it has come to be used as the most offensive swear in the English language... Then, after the girl calls her a bitch, she orders Hero to kill the girl.
