Q: What is the "rebel cunt army"?
A: Some words I liked and sang.
Q: But is it a real thing I can join?
Q: Do I have to have a cunt?
Q: Do I have to be a cunt?
Q: What does that mean?
A: "Cunt" is a derogatory term akin to "bitch" but nastier. Being a cunt means being disliked. Being in the "rebel cunt army" would mean being disliked by the straight white supremacist capitalist patriarchy - which currently clings to power. Terms like "pussy" and "cunt" are terms of gendered violence used by men and women alike as a way of expressing that they don't like someone and they don't like them so much they are calling them the worst thing you could possibly be: female genitalia*
Q: So why are you using the word?
A: I find it cathartic to reclaim the words of gendered violence and throw them back in the faces of our oppressors.
(*Important note: not all women have cunts, not all cunts are women.)
