** Confusingly to native-English speakers, there's also the Dutch word ''kont'', which sounds even more like the infamous English C-word - but ''kont'' but refers to a different part of anatomy, that both men and women have: it is just a fairly mild word for a person's behind, comparatively even milder than "ass" in English - mostly akin to "butt".

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 most offensive insults in the English language, perhaps rivaled only by the infamous N word (whose level of offensiveness [[NWordPrivileges varies depends on who's saying it]]). It's virtually always used to express bitter, mocking contempt, and is more likely to be directed at women than at men; when used by a man against a woman the argument has just gone thermonuclear. 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.
