Surely it's got to be 'wanker'.

I mean show me a bloke who isn't.


"You wanker!"

"Yeah, and...?"

Probably when a heterosexual male declares love for a woman and then his mate says: "Errr, you're gay!"

You're either a wanker or a liar.

There are words like 'git, 'sod', 'pillock' and tit' that are so tame that they will hardly offend anyone. Who call's someone a 'tit'? Tits can be attractive things, to insult someone you would have to say something like 'fuck you you saggy, wrinkly, leathery old granny tit'......


or something.......

Historical misogyny and the reduction of female sexuality to a single reference point and perceptions that female sexuality was unclean and the least unwholesome thing to exist?

I like the origin story for the word as coming from Gropecuntelane in the 12th Century which was a lane populated by the low, thieves and prostitutes (apparently the first historical reference to the word) and there is a suggestion that this was where the first hints of the word being "unclean" originate. Also there is the nautical cunt splice which is a form of splice (now called the cut splice). In fact in Chaucers day it was a perfectly acceptable word and up to Elizabethan days was often used in a non obscene form (in fact the word lap played that role although was also non obscene at the same time).

At the end of the day do what I always do. Blame the Victorians.

Alright, Mr. Logic. Although surely that should have been the most unwholesome thing?

I thought that was actually just a generic nickname for streets that hosted prostitution? Because the street was named after the activity?

I think there's a certain ex-forumite who would have been ideal for this thread.

Alas, it is not to be.

Apparently they all originated from one street (although this appears to be from a 1954 book on etymology so is a bit word of mouth ).
