“I think once you’ve thought about how a person sleeps, how they’d feel pressed up against your back, or your head on their chest, how compatible your bodies would be in the same space of a bed — once you’ve thought about that, you’re fucked.”—(via xeak)
To many the word “cunt” is one of the most vile, obscene and vulgar swear words in the English language. But while researching the origins of this word I was amazed to find out that in its original meaning we, consciously awake women, might all be “cunts”. Sacred cunts.
The Meaning, Magic and Power of the Word “Cunt”
#1 A spiritually, enlightened woman
The word ‘Cunt’ in the vernacular means vagina. The word itself was originally a term of respect and reverence for a powerful, spiritually enlightened woman. ‘Cunt’ derives from ‘Kunda’ or ‘Cunti, the Oriental Great Goddess. She was the Great Yoni (Sanskrit = Source of all life) of the Universe, where all life came from and to where all life returned for renewal. Source
#2 A High priestess
I recently came across the book “Phallic Worship” which explored how “Cunts” have been high priestesses who had sexual union with people to bring them to a higher level of spirituality.
#2 A woman with divine power & life-giving ability
Western transcribers of ancient texts were shocked to find that the term ‘cunt’ was synonymous with ‘women’, but what they did not realize was that the term was not being used as an insult, rather an acknowledgement of the divine power and life-giving ability they bore.
#3 The latin origin of the word “cunt”
The most immediate sources is the Latin word ‘cunnus’, meaning the vulva. (Wikipedia) Its ‘poshest’ form is in the word for that loveliest of erotic pleasures, ‘cunnilingus’. A related Latin word is ‘cuneus’, a wedge, rather descriptive of the cunt itself and also found in the word ‘cuneiform’ (which will be described later in this article). Source
#4 Other derivatives of the word cunt
‘cunabula’ = a cradle (and like the mother’s womb, protects and soothes the child)
‘Cunina’ = the Roman goddess who protected cradled children.
‘Cunctipotent’ = being all powerful; having cunt magic
“The idea that sex is something a woman gives a man, and she loses something when she does that, which again for me is nonsense. I want us to raise girls differently where boys and girls start to see sexuality as something that they own, rather than something that a boy takes from a girl.”—Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (via coyotegold)
“I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”—Maya Angelou (via aclockworkorange)
