I hate it. It's extremely sexist and offensive to use a severe curse word that signifies the female genitalia, and I hate it when rude men use it to mean "bitch" when discussing a woman. But I find it incredibly offensive when a man uses it regarding another man, to mean "asshole" or uber-jerk or something along those lines. Usually uttered "You **** in this awful, spitting kind of a way. Women hardly use "dick" in the same way- maybe "dickhead", but that doesn't connotate a kind of vulgarised male essence the way c*** does about a woman. It's disgusting, and the only curse word I personally refuse to use, even in my writing. I've heard it used too often as some incredibly insulting term usually directed at a man or an "uppity" woman.
Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
And this town ain't never gonna be the same.
Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls, they are so pretty...
