man (n.) O.E. man, mann "human being, person (male or female); brave man, hero; servant, vassal," from P.Gmc. *manwaz (cf. O.S., Swed., Du., O.H.G. man, Ger.Mann, O.N. maðr, Dan. mand, Goth. manna "man"), from PIE root *man-(1) "man" (cf. Skt. manuh, Avestan manu-, O.C.S. mozi, Rus. muzh "man, male"). Plural men (Ger. Männer) shows effects of i-mutation. Sometimes connected to root *men- "to think" (see mind), which would make the ground sense ofman "one who has intelligence," but not all linguists accept this. Liberman, for instance, writes, "Most probably man 'human being' is a secularized divine name" from Mannus [cf. Tacitus, "Germania," chap. 2], "believed to be the progenitor of the human race." So I am as he that seythe, `Come hyddr John, my man.' [1473] Sense of "adult male" is late (c.1000); O.E. used wer and wif to distinguish the sexes, but wer began to disappear late 13c. and was replaced by man. Universal sense of the word remains in mankind and manslaughter. Similarly, Latin had homo "human being" and vir "adult male human being," but they merged in V.L., with homo extended to both senses. A like evolution took place in Slavic languages, and in some of them the word has narrowed to mean "husband." PIE had two stems: *uiHro "freeman" (cf. Skt. vira-, Lith. vyras, L. vir, O.Ir. fer, Goth. wair) and *hner "man," a title more of honor than *uiHro (cf. Skt. nar-, Armenian ayr, Welsh ner, Gk. aner). MAN TRAP. A woman's commodity.

F**k B***hes

 

I gotchu - No one is K-ing you today

 

Break the shackles and set fuck free – only way to fucking solve

 

Fairman‘06

(Chistopher, Professor of Law at OSU, National Expert in Civil Procedure, Legal Ethics, and Taboo language “Fuck,†Public Law and Legal Theory, March, Pg. 74, TVB)

 

Regardless of its source, when taboo becomes institutionalizedthrough law, the effects of taboo are also institutionalized. If we want to diminish the taboo effect, the solution is not silence. Nor should offensive language be punished. We must recognize that words like fuck have a legitimate place in our daily life. Scholars must take responsibility for eliminating ignorance about the psychological aspects of offensive speech and work to eliminate dualistic views of good words and bad words. Taboo language should be included in dictionaries, freely spoken and written in our schools and colleges, printed in our newspapers and magazines, and broadcast on radio and television. Fuck must be set free.

Suppressing fuck perpetuates the taboo – turns the fucking kritik. Fuck.

Fuck is a taboo word. According to psycholinguists, its taboo status is likely due to our deep, subconscious feelings about sex.19 The taboo is so strong that it compels many to engage in self-censorship. However, refraining from the use of fuck only reinforces the taboo. In the process, silence empowers small segments of the population to manipulate our rights under the guise of reflecting a greater community. Taboo is then institutionalized through law, yet at the same time is in tension with other identifiable legal rights. Understanding this relationship between law and taboo ultimately yields fuck jurisprudence.20 However, all the attempts to curtail the use of fuck through law are doomed to fail. Fundamentally, fuck persists because it is taboo, not in spite of it.21 Dr. Leo Stone’s 1954 lamentation that “scholarly information about this important

word is remarkable for its scarcity†remains true today.22 The first recorded use is disputed.

Fuck is inevitable

Suffice it to say, fuck is everywhere. As author Roy Blount, Jr. puts it: “the f- word is a fact of life. It thrives.†One recent Internet search revealed that fuck “is a morecommonly used word than mom, baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet.â€61 It is present in movies, television programs, and popular music.64 Our President reportedly uses it with aplomb. The Vice President embraces it as well.66 But if you wear a t-shirt imprinted with pictures of Bush, Cheney, and Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice labeled “Meet the Fuckers,†intended as a parody of the popular comedy “Meet the Fockers,â€67 get ready to be kicked off an airplane.68 Fuck remains a word “known by all and recognized by none.â€69 To understand this dichotomy over “our worst word,†I turn to the realm of psychoanalysts, linguists, and sociologists. The answer lies in taboo.

 

Desire Turn

 

1. Attempts to ban the word fuck reinforces the Oedipal and suppresses the fruition of desire

It finds expression in those researchers who explain fuck’s taboo status as a reflection of the Oedipus complex.103 According to Dr. Ariel Arango in his book Dirty Words: Psychoanalytic Insights, “the ‘dirty’ word, to fuck, always means, at root, to fuck one’s mother; to go back to her womb.Such is the universal Oedipus longing.†Everyday use of the word would awaken the “sleeping dogs†among fathers and sons. Therefore, a ban on the word fuck is essential to bury the universal incestuous desire.The importance of psychoanalysis to an understanding of fuck is not to the exclusion of other disciplines. Etymologists provide us with a valuable historical account of usage and taboo.106 Linguists point out that the phonological pattern of consonant+vowel+hardconsonant+consonant may explain why fuck survived while 16th century contemporaries like swive and jape did not. Sociologists note the cultural influences on offensive speech. For example, use of fuck may be appropriate for some contexts (like a dorm room) but not others (like the Dean’s office).

 

2. Oedipus takes and negates our value to life by forcing us to desire our own repression. Only under these conditions is fascism possible on the microscale. The impact is the loss of value in life.

 

Seem 83 (Mark, Intro to Anti-Oedipus, xvii)

 

To be anti-oedipal is to be anti-ego as well as anti-homo, willfully attacking all reductive psychoanalytic and political analyses that remain caught within the sphere of totality and unity, in order to free the multiplicity of desire from the deadly neurotic and Oedipal yoke. For Oedipus is not a mere psychoanalytic construct, Deleuze and Guattariexplain.Oedipus is the figurehead of imperialism, "colonization pursued by other means, it is the interior colony, and we shall see that even here at home ... it is our intimate colonial education." This internalization of man by man, this "oedipalization," creates a new meaning for suffering, internal suffering, and a new tone for life: the depressive tone. Now depression does not just come about one fine day, Anti-Oedipus goes on, nor does Oedipus appear one day in the Family and feel secure in remaining there. Depression and Oedipus are agencies of the State, agencies of paranoia, agencies of power, long before being delegated to the family. Oedipus is the figure of power as such, just as neurosis is the result of power on individuals. Oedipus is everywhere.For anti-oedipalists the ego, like Oedipus, is "part of those things we must dismantle through the united assault of analytical and political forces."4Oedipus is belief injected into the unconscious, it is what gives us faith as it robs us of power, it is what teaches us to desire our own repression.Everybody has been oedipalized and neuroticized at home, at school, at work. Everybody wants to be a fascist.Deleuze and Guattari want to know how these beliefs succeed in taking hold of a body, thereby silencing the productive machines of the libido. They also want to know how the opposite situation is brought about, where a body successfully wards off the effects of power. Reversing the Freudian distinction between neurosis and psychosis that measures everything against the former, Anti-Oedipus concludes: the neurotic is the one on whom the Oedipal imprints take, whereas the psychotic is the one incapable of being oedipalized, even and especially by psychoanalysis.The first task of the revolutionary, they add, is to learn from the psychotic how to shake off the Oedipal yoke and the effects of power, in order to initiate a radical politics of desire freed from all beliefs. Such a politics dissolves the mystifications of power through the kindling, on all levels, of anti-oedipal forces-the schizzes-flows-forces that escape coding, scramble the codes, and flee in all directions: orphans (no daddy-mommy-me), atheists (no beliefs), and nomads (no habits, no territories). Aschizoanalysisschizophrenizes in order to break the holds of power and institute research into a new collective subjectivity and a revolutionary healing of mankind. For we are sick, so sick, of our selves!

 

AND - Bitch refers to female dogs - AND - Turn - It was originally an insult for men - We solve patriarchy by attacking as per your discourse evidence

Etymonline.com No Date (http://www.etymonlin...searchmode=none. JCook.) bitch (n.) O.E. bicce "female dog," probably from O.N. bikkjuna "female of the dog" (also fox, wolf, and occasionally other beasts), of unknown origin. Grimm derives the O.N. word from Lapp pittja, but OED notes that "the converse is equally possible." As a term of contempt applied to women, it dates from c.1400; of a man, c.1500, playfully, in the sense of "dog." Used among male homosexuals from 1930s. In modern (1990s, originally black English) slang, its use with reference to a man is sexually contemptuous, from the "woman" insult.

No one defended gender roles here. The entire point of these cards is that the word man as used generically is not assuming specific genders. Having different words for different genders should be what you think is weird, if anything. Quit being such a fucking bitch.

 

Just kidding because I love you. Heart.

 

Also, those Fasching cards and the Guatarri card kick ass.
