Why is it these new combination insulting words lean more towards the female gender? Or do you guys call each other the C word too?

Ah a nice few days off then. Paperwork at home lmao you'll be on ATS half the time!

Swollen black eye though is not a good look walking into shady backstreet pubs for some food earlier...

Gosh swearing is common among friends, it just depends on the tone of voice and context...having a laugh I can call all my friends and most strangers a word which will not offend them, imagine laughing and calling someone a jerk for whatever then in my world any swear words go.
We have loads in Britain which ATS censors miss out, Brit's use them often in Brit threads.
Swear words are a massive part of English communication in the UK, it's all about tone of voice and context.

Yes we do. A lot. Us Brits are equal opportunity and gender inclusive when it comes to insulting each other.

Of course, the "tw" in "twunt" obviously is "twit". Honest.

Yes, we do. There is a similar word we use, too.

If you would like to research British swear words I heartily recommend that you Google "Roger's Profanisaurus". If you have a robust sense of humour, otherwise probably best not.

I would post a link but my work computer does not like it, for some reason.

Weird how the same C word is the absolute bad word for some people in the right context, yet I was called it today while laughing with someone who I didn't know, in conversation. I wasn't offended because in my world it is the tone of your words which may anger me, not the words, the real emotion which leads to fights.

Shakespeare was fond of it eg - 3rd one down, Ophelia and Hamlet:

You Don't Know Shakespeare

Once my Scottish boyfriend called me a 'twit' because I said something he found odd, or didn't understand because our cultures were different. Even though he said it in a joking manner, my response was that I was not amused and let him know it. He never called me that again.

He might have tried begging.

That was an interesting read

I don't really know much Shakespeare, read The Merchant of Venice in school, enjoyed that.
I played 'the wall' in Midsomer nights at youth theatre as well, but only really understood my own part.

It's fairly mild:

Twit - Noun

Lol, you'd dump me in a heartbeat without mods around to stop me using such words!
We have loads of swear words in the UK, they all have different nuances to each other, but tone of voice and emotional intent is more important than the words to the average Brit.

Urrm, yep, which is why I don't interact with you how I normally do in real life with my chosen words.

But why would you when you don't really know how I would react? First impressions and all.
