Why is it that sex is so closely tied to insults? Perhaps it is because making very intimate matters public is inherently shaming. Certainly it has to do with the Puritanical wave that dominates the country. These theories help explain catcalling but fall flat when facing the Great Pumpkin of all insults:
Fuck you. Why is this not a compliment? "Oh, thank you for that, you know, it's been quite awhile since anyone has wished sexual fulfillment upon me! You're a gem!" At least this is how things in my imaginary universe go. Damn you, on the other hand, is easily explained: the insulter wishes the insulted party damned for all eternity. But fuck you? Please, someone alleviate my confusion!
*YES. Watch me resort to lolcats! This will not be the last time! Ha!**
**Ok, it was gonna be a lion batting a porcupine, but that's comparing your ideas to quills. Also this cat has counselor paws, so there.
