"Cunt" defended by university president
KUSA-TV 9 Denver |
"In a sworn statement to be made public Tuesday, University of Colorado President Elizabeth Hoffman said a four-letter word used toward women can sometimes be used as a 'term of endearment.' The comment comes from Hoffman's latest sworn testimony in connection with a federal lawsuit against the university... In the deposition, Hoffman was asked whether the "c-word" is 'filthy and vile.' She said she knows the word is a swear word, but 'It is all in the context of what - of how it is used and when it is used.' She was asked, 'Can you indicate any polite context in which that word would be used?' Hoffman answered, 'Yes, I've actually heard it used as a term of endearment.'" [cf. Cunt: A Declaration of Independence]
