Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

That's why I can't spell it out in english, it's very crude.

I got his point, though.

I don't really get why one would invoke it as an insult though, seems to go against everything a heterosexual man in good health and spirit stands and strives for. Oh well. (In french of course it's another matter; though the word is invoked often, the content it carries is so far divorced from the original term that it carries no signifaction for the user; perhaps it did long ago, but its new meaning was reified so far into the past that the etymology is no longer relevant. Not so in english.)

The Hun is always either at your throat or at your feet. Winston Churchill
