Spotted in Hamra: "My pussy is not an insult."
Forgive my French, but isn't "kiss ummak/ikhtak" rather akin to "ayri feek"? So if a vagina is not an insult, can a penis be? Aren't we all equal in the bra-less world of feminism?
That being said, genitalia-related insults have been frequent for centuries. Just take for example, the eloquence of Shakespeare in Henry VI: "Thou mis-shapen dick!" (Seriously, I didn't make that up).
We can all agree, sexism is totally not cool. But as long as swears hit on both genders equally, then I see no problem with the aforementioned Lebanese colloquialisms. Or you know, we could just be classy and just not use them altogether.
But I'm a realist.
