Cunt

Would a cunt by any other name still not smell like fish? (with apologies to William Shakespeare)

Well THAT title oughta get me a few hits – just figuratively speaking – I hope.

Cunt, cunt, cunt, cunt. Has the shock value worn off yet?

Cunt, cunt, cunt, cunt. Are you titillated? Shocked? Embarrassed? Enraged?

Cunt, cunt, cunt, cunt. You see I am trying to desensitise you until the word loses its power so you can focus on what I am really writing about here.

I imagine I will attract some readers that I’m really not trying to attract (and hey, that’s okay, you’re welcome too) and will chase off other readers that I would prefer read on.  (Wish you would stay.)

So now that I have your attention, at least for those of you that are curious enough to wonder what I really do have to say – all I really have to say is:

“that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet”

I may not have put it as elegantly as William Shakespeare did when he wrote Romeo and Juliet over 400 years ago, but the point is the word – whether it’s “rose” or “cunt” is just a word.

And so is “Beaver”. It’s just a word and there’s no need to change the name of a Canadian iconic history magazine – Canada’s second oldest magazine – just to please a few uptight politically correct assholes.

After 90 years of publishing, The Beaver, Canada’s history magazine is folding to pressure to change their name to “Canada’s History”. How boring is that for a magazine that was originally created to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the Hudson’s Bay Company?

Is it too much to expect that a “history” magazine have some kind of loyalty to the tradition of its own rich heritage?

The “official” reason given by the magazine claims that online porn filters too often censor them which prevents it from reaching new online readers.

I find that kind of odd because when I Googled either “Beaver Magazine” or “The Beaver” I didn’t get one hit on the first page to a porn site.  My safe search is set to off, by the way.

Same with search engines Bing, Yahoo, Alta Vista, Ask Jeeves, Excite, and Lycos – no porn on the first page on a search on any of them.

Admittedly AOL search engine did return one pretty benign adult dating site.

On the first page of one Google search EVERY link returned was to either the Beaver Magazine website or a story about The Beaver Magazine.

I don’t know a lot about porn filters but if email porn filters are blocking The Beaver Magazine is it possible it’s because Beaver Magazine is actually spamming? Maybe it’s the spam filters causing the problem and not the porn filters.

And just maybe that’s a convenient excuse to fold to pressure of politically correct activists without appearing to fold to politically correct activists.

Or maybe it’s time Canada chose a new national symbol to display on our nickels. What do you think? Should it be a fish? Or a chicken?

    I think appeasing all the activists is the right answer here. No, it`s not what all the ( white )redneck idiots out there gullibly believe. It`s not their chants of ” git rid o` these nigger,chink,gook,sand-nigger, trouble makers”. The REAL activists are the the cigar chompin`WHITE businessmen,the WHITE soccer moms,the WHITE school teachers that are legislated into “non-thinking” assholes. Canada is a ” pussy ” country that bows to the few not the many. Take the fucking beaver off the nickel if it so offends ( maybe not the lesbians but fuck them too ). Replace it with a guy bending over `cause that`s what we get in this country. Just keep bending over and we`ll drive it home, just a little bit harder and a little bit harder every chance we get. I wouldn`t be surprised if your precious Beaver Magazine is run by the very assholes I`ve described. WHITE assholes that are going to save the FEELINGS of the fucking children!

    Does your Mother read your articles?

    Not likely anymore, she won’t.

    If you go to the Vagina Monologues, one of the things you get to do, male or female, is yell “cunt” over and over at the top of your lungs until you have reclaimed the term for yourself, and presumably you vaginal. That’s great for the theatre-goers of the world – they’ve spent their money so they get to waste their time in anyway they want. However, I would prefer that my time not be wasted by other folk who should have better things to do, by making the multifarious meanings of words like “beaver” an issue. Aren’t there better ways for all of us to spend our time?
