the cunt argument makes no sense, it's completely misogynistic and he doesn't solely have a fucking scottish audience
Totally agree. The same goes for black people using the N-word. If it sounds offensive to me, it's offensive, end of story.

This Lumberjack Dynasty game he's been playing has made for some great streams. It's such a mad game and he's in his element with it. Lovely stuff.

Literally only ever heard men say that cunt is misogynistic.

Not sure if MrMrs is a man. Hard to tell from the username.

His "you are a fucking cunt" xylophone was the first Limmy thing I ever saw.

Couldn't make a xylophone like that these days. Because Flash is dead.

No idea where I heard it, but I remember in an interview he mentioned he'd re-written it in html5, so indeed you could. His website redirects to Twitch, but I found a version here. No idea if it's the real thing, or a fan copy: https://daftlimmy.github.io/Swearing-Xylophone/

To be fair, that’s not really the same since it’s not a slur directed purely at Scottish people. You’d have more of a point if he was a woman.

Not that it bothers me at all, mind you, I think it’s a beautifully versatile word that flows fairly naturally as part of my vocabulary, but I’ve got to be careful about using it out here in that America because it’s nowhere near as commonplace and still packs a punch - a “gendered” one at that. Not sure HR would buy “everyone in the UK uses it” as much of an excuse, so I imagine the same goes for Americans watching Limmy’s streams.

One of those strange cultural divides.

"Cunt" honestly isn't misogynistic when it's used this side of the Atlantic. Fed up of Americans going "actually you can't say that, it's bad in my country" and yet they keep using "poof" to mean things appearing magically.

There’s a film on Disney Plus called “The Poof Point” and yet they won’t even read my script for “Mickey Mouse Cunts a Cunt’s Head”

I mean, the flippant response "actually you can't say that, it's bad in my country" is just to call that xenophobia. but that's petty and childish

I think it's tricky, as the word has evolved to be almost completely detached from it's biological meaning, when I hear it I no longer even think of the gendered description/insult. But it's tricky as if Limmy is saying "it's not sexist because it's not meant as a sexist thing, it's just used as a general negative insult" then it reminds me of people I've known throughout my life who have defended using the words 'gay' and 'faggot' as pejoratives with "I don't mean it in a homophobic way, I'm just using a word commonly associated with it to describe literally anything negative, it's fine!" which is a bit iffy...

It's not always in a negative sense though, it's used in a inert way as well: anycunt, this cunt etc. Too late for it to be gotten rid of I think anyway.

I agree with you, same with how Australians use it, I was just referring to what someone earlier in the thread said Limmy's reasoning was ("it's just another word for idiot").

It's not a silly argument. When Americans hear the word they have an unpleasant misogynistic associaton in their head. It's exactly analogous with the aforementioned mate who uses "faggot" as a pejorative and claims that it's just the way he talks and that you should just deal with it. The difference is that that mate is probably being disingenuous whereas Scottish people are being sincere. One might say that Americans should just wise up to this. But since we live in an international English speaking world, Scottish people should wise up when speaking to international audiences. Not because I say so, but because it invites misunderstandings.

I wouldn't say pejorative use of a word is exactly analogous with sometimes pejorative/sometimes punctuative/sometimes affectionate use of a word.

Yeah, that's true. Scottish "cunt" can be affectionate whereas the other word not so much.

According to OSW review, YouTube has decided cunt is as bad as the n word or homophobic slurs. Videos now being suppressed, because Google can’t make money off them. Bad news for Limmy

Tell Americans they can't say 'chug' anymore. See how they like it.
