I heard Geraldo Rivera say the “c” word is equivalent to using the “n” word..
Cunt has to be worse. Women kill you for saying that. Nigger they say all the time on tv and in songs so it has to be more acceptable.
He's right: they're both totally acceptable words (in an informal context, of course). Let's see what SOH censors: fuck, bitch, cunt, nigger, gook, chinaman, zipperhead, towelhead, sand-nigger, dink, jap, etc... it's ridiculous to exclude words from usage, because all that does is give them the power that people fear. If I'm dropping "nigger" every hour or so, everyone around me stops giving power to the word.
They're both just words. Grow a thicker skin and stop being a snowflake if you're offended by a single word.
They are both derogatory words.
What, cunt? Hell no.
Geraldo seems to have gotten this one all the way wrong. There’s a shocker.
They are just words. Some people attach feelings to them for some reason but they have now power
I agree with this. Both are used to degrade people.
I told my son this today.
It is derogatory to women the same as the n word is to black people.
Only an idiot would think that.
It's actually far worse. I consider the "c-word" to be the single ugliest and most inexcusable word in the English language. Its use is simply NEVER acceptable.

What are we analyzing and rating bad words now? Gimme a break. Certain words only certain people can say?
Sticks and stones.
I guess this means cunt which I perceive as no more offensive than being called a bitch, a-hole, or the likes. As far as N referring to black people I’ve been told it’s as offensive as calling them negro but I wouldn’t know. These are all offensive as they’re meant to offend people.
The issue is that as a society we’ve accepted the natural use of these words but have kept nigger sacred as a different classification of offensiveness. It’s all nonsense to me to think nigger is more offensive than cracker for whites, rafter for Cubans, yellow skins for Asian, or Mexican for Hispanics. In fact it’s crazy that blacks call themselves nigger among friends. I’ve always been taught to respect myself if I’m to demand respect from others. Guess not among black people.
Not even close.
Worse. You are relegated to a body part where as the other represents a whole human.
A whole “inferior” person.
Or a black hole.
People living in Australia and the UK must be really offensive to talk to.
I tend to doubt that. But I'm neither a woman nor African-American, so...?
What a cunt.
Boy it’s hard to put into words how pathetic the faux competition of the outrage level of collections of letters are.
You have SJWs who want a monopoly on word outrage and trumpsters who want in on the game
Is someone about to take away cunt? How will I road rage now? Twat is still available. Thank Yeezus.
They want cunt? They’ll have to pry it from my cold dead mouth. Cunts
