I just read the word 'cuck' >_< ...
Hearing or reading the word 'cuck' thrown at someone has the same feeling as someone punching me in the back of the head (for reference, I was once punched in the back of the head at a Distillers show... I mean, by accident, I think that person was just trying to get up to the front...)
I hate this word.
'Cuckold' has been appropriated and bastardized by alt-right cis straight men so that it insults with reverberation, a kind of sonic boom so that it hits everyone, not just the person who's being aimed and fired at. Taking someone out with the word 'cuck' offends primarily twofold: 1) it's to humiliate and emasculate men (this will hurt if they haven't revised their definition of masculinity yet) by pointing out that their weakness was not being able to hold power and control over a woman; 2) once again, it's to carry on the double standard that it's ghastly and shameful for a man to have let himself not just be victimized (this isn't where the shame is), but let himself be victimized by a woman (this is where the shame is). It keeps in place outdated gender roles and perpetuates a/the power struggle between the two. I could go on and on about this, and that's how 'cuck' functions, that's how it moves, that's the weight it pulls... it tends to fill every single last space where there needs to be insult.
So when you hear this word, whether it was meant for you or not, don't take it lying down. Don't roll over. Don't take it like it's shitty for a woman to have assumed power in sex politics just because she's a woman. Say something, please. It hurts all of us.
I guess what I'm saying here is: whoever throws the word 'cuck' at someone deserves to be punched in the back of the head.

P.S.: I like for it to be put on record that I generally don't condone adultery, which isn't really the topic here, but in case anyone got confused or needed clarification.
