    Empowering to some, offensive to others, Cuntfest arrives at Penn State this Saturday.

    The all-day festival, sponsored by Womyn's Concerns and the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance, is inspired by Cunt: A Declaration of Independence, a book by Inga Muscio. Muscio feels the word, which once had positive connotations, should be reclaimed by women. In her book, Muscio says 'cunt' stems from words that were either titles of respect for women, priestesses and witches, or derivatives of goddesses' names.

    "Cunt originally started off as a good word," said Michelle Yates (junior-women's studies), who initiated the event. "And it got transformed into one of the worst words you can call a woman." "I just want all people, but particularly women, not to be bound by so many negative words about the female body," Ausburn said.

    It's time to reclaim cunt, she said.

    "Vagina comes from a word meaning 'sheath for a sword,' and I find that offensive and heterosexist," she said. If women reclaim the word cunt, Yates said, it won't have to hurt when someone uses it.

    "It would be a beautiful day for a woman to be able to say, 'Thank you. Thank you for calling me a cunt,'" Yates said.

    There's something oddly attractive - yes, horribly oddly - about that mallet-faced bitch.
