Jane Fonda, famous actress, anti-Vietnam War activist, and daughter of acting great Henry Fonda, appeared on the February 14 edition of NBC's "Today" show.
She described a bit of the production, "The Vagina Monologues," a popular stage portrait of the issues of women discussed in monologue form by women.
All of a sudden, Jane used the taboo word "cunt" to describe the vagina, a most definite no-no on spoken media.
Host Meredith Vieira apologized later for the Network, but was unshaken throughout.
Good for you, Meredith! Don't be afraid to say the cunt word!
The bottom line: What was the big deal? Everybody, including the kindergarten crowd knows vagina, pussy, pud, snatch, love hole, slash, gash, clam, box, slime hole, and other slang for this most exciting part of the female anatomy. And, that talk includes cunt, as well. And many men feel Jane is one herself from the Vietnam days when she appeared with the enemy.
So America, give up your puritanism! Besides, cunt added some spice to the show and got a few guys off.
Was use of cunt worse than Diane Keaton's accidental use of "fuck" on the January 15 edition of "Good Morning America," which freaked out host Diane Sawyer? Give the real people a break for once, dammit! The real people do use gutter language and we all love it!!!
Cunt, fuck, cunt, fuck, cunt, fuck...there...its power is gone. George Carlin, where are you now that you can smile?!
Well, maybe, it's been so long, since he did his four-letter word routine, that a fucking cunt means nothing to him, anymore!
