If any male has license to call any one female a 'cunt', I think Courtney Love more than applies. It's an issue of semantics, really. Would you be just as fired up if I called her a twat or a cum-dumpster? Because she's those too, Clucky. She's all of the above and worse.

Doesn't matter what someone "is". Slurs are slurs. Really don't see how calling someone a "cunt" is any better than using the n-slur or f-slur. (Except apparently those are censored here but "cunt" so I guess AP.net is okay with sexism, just as long as it isn't racist or homophobic sexism)
I get what you're saying, and to a large extent: you're right, but let's call a spade a spade here. She's the c-word.

What's your the point though? A black guy is still the n-word. But saying "let's call a spade a spade" doesn't make it okay for me to call him one.

There are words you just shouldn't use. They promote misogyny or other forms of hatred -- the idea that Courtney's love problem isn't just that she's an asshole, she's a female asshole and that is somehow worse. Even that isn't the intent behind the word, its still how its going to be perceived by many, and so especially when you're on the internet and so many of the communities on the internet are thinly disguised pools of misogyny, its good to set a better standard and say "If you're problem with Courtney Love is that she's an asshole, just her an asshole. Don't use a different word that carries a broader meaning". We don't have to stoop to the same level. This place is usually really good about the racist / homophobic stuff, so I guess I just don't get why sexism is any different.
Cunt is a unisex slur, though.

Thank you, CallMeTroy and Louie C.K. That's basically how I feel about it.

All women aren't cunts though. Just Courtney Love.
