* In''Film/ScaryMovie 5'', Jody sees the words "whore", "bitch" and "slut" written on the bathroom mirrors (in a parody of BlackSwan), and catches Heather in the act as she's still writing "cun-".

In other English-speaking countries, it's nowhere near as mind-blowingly offensive (but still a strong expletive) and it's generally unisex or (as in Britain) mainly directed at men, being something like a stronger, crasser version of "asshole" or "douchebag". In some situations (i.e., among young [[ViolentGlaswegian Glaswegians]], [[LondonTown London cockneys]], [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings New Zealanders]], or [[LandDownUnder Australians]]) it might even be a term of ''[[VitriolicBestBuds affection]]''. See ''Literature/{{Trainspotting}}'' where it's not a word, [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch it's a punctuation mark]]; it's also likely to be practically a catchphrase for any LondonGangster. Other languages can have similar uses for the word. In the Dutch language, in particular, it's considered mostly harmless: you're having a cunt day when there's cunt weather outside and the cunt dog ate your cunt homework, which is, as the Dutch say with heartfelt compassion, "cunt for you". [[note]]The Dutch equivalent word is "kut", pronounced exactly the way you think (like "cut", but with a bit of a softer sound -- "kuht"). It's also not applicable as an insult to men (though this has been changing recently, due to a certain Dutch show, and as the example illustrates, it's most commonly used as an adjective, of sorts. "Die kuthond" (that cunt dog, literally) is, in the context of this example, very much comparable to "that fucking dog". Using it against a woman is still a grave insult, however -- even the swear-happy Dutch aren't likely to do it, except, perhaps, in the heat of an argument. Even then, it's not easily excused.[[/note]] Strangely, in French-speaking countries the word "con" means simply "dumbass" or "jerk" and is a mild insult only (it helps that almost nobody uses it in a sexual meaning).
