Lest We Forget

This title would have been much more appropriate (or perhaps inappropriate?) if I'd gotten around to putting it up on ANZAC day, but never mind - I'm sure you can summon fitting somber facial expressions as you read this solemn post of rememberance for a lost love one.

I would like to dedicate this blog to the memory of my beloved Facefuck group "I don't find the word cunt offensive, cunts are friendly, in my experience".

The group, which had the noble aim of restoring 'cunt' to its rightful place in our lexicon as a descriptor of things warm and lovable and sought to remove the nasty negative associations that the word has been unfairly saddled with, was taken from us late last year.

Facefuck cruelly shut down the group in its prime declaring:

"The group "I don't find the word cunt offensive, cunts are friendly, in my experience" has been removed because it violated our Terms of Use. Among other things, groups that are hateful, threatening, or obscene are not allowed. We also take down groups that attack an individual or group, or advertise a product or service. Continued misuse of Facebook's features could result in your account being disabled.

There was so much more to be said about cunt that I have decided to create this blog to explore every nook & cranny, to get right to the bottom of cunt and perhaps right to the bottom of bottom too, if I have the time.
