It's not appropriate to use the word 'stinkyhole' to describe someone who lies to people and exploits their grief about dead relatives/friends in order to scam them into some kind of 'psychic reading' in order to profit and have a TV show?

"stinkyhole" is a slur, just like "friend of the family" or "kike." It's not really interchangeable with "rear end in a top hat," "scumbag," or whatever word you want to describe someone like cold reading-scam artists. Or try using "friend of the family" next time to describe someone like the Long Island Medium, and see how well that goes over, I dunno.

It's a slur that denigrates women, just like "kike" denigrates Jewish people or "friend of the family" denigrates blacks. When you use a word like that, you're reducing someone to a single characteristic that signals that they have little or no worth, based on their gender, religion, or skin color. This isn't something new that came about from Tumblr in the last year.

I mean, I get that in much of the English-speaking world, it's a catch-all term on the level of calling someone an rear end in a top hat. At the same time, it's an ugly word with a nasty history and it's pretty offensive when it's used as a slur. If you're going to use it on an American-based message board, and it's been explained why it's offensive/taboo, and you have the power of the Internet to explore the history and loaded meaning of the word, go nuts, but understand why people bristle at your use of that word.

I get that, which is why I understand why it's more taboo in the USA than other standard insults like rear end in a top hat or whatever. I myself don't particularly like to use it or other similar slurs referring to a group of people - I hate to say 'I've been jewed' for example. But, why is 'stinkyhole' so much worse than 'pussy' or 'retard' which is flung about all the time? Or even calling someone a vagina or telling them to sack up?

If you say those words/phrases are also sexist I don't necessarily disagree but I'm talking about consistent enforcement of rules.

You kinda lose me there though. What history does 'stinkyhole' have really? I mean yeah it's a storied insult but it has no history other than that afaik. It was never used as a tool of dehumanization in order to justify slavery for example.


e: also fwiw the Oxford Dictionary of Slang: "2-A foolish or despicable person, female or male" and in fact apparently it is more common in the UK/Australia to refer to men as cunts vs women.

Just say "cunny" when referring specifically to women and "stinkyhole" when referring to men to avoid confusion.

It's not hard to figure out fellas. Americans have de-stigmatized all of our big swear words except stinkyhole. Let us have this one thing, you cunts.

Where I come from it's nearly a term of endearment. You call people you hate "mate" and your mates "stinkyhole". It's also used mainly as a descriptor for men, strangely enough. Like "pussy" I guess, but you can call someone a good stinkyhole whereas we don't really call someone a good pussy, that is something a woman has rather than is.

Here in America, black people get to(?) call each other "friend of the family*" all the time, and use the same justification.

It doesn't mean it's okay or that anyone should do it. Because feelings.

It's the same situation with non-Americans and "stinkyhole."
