FROM LILY WHITE LEFEVRE spotted here.
…[C]hallenging writers to simply cunt up and write.
Not ordinarily a choice of words I’d ratify — or even make for myself. But somehow, in the context, it has an odd, rough charm to it. As a male writer who writes a lot of female characters (dunno why, that’s just how they appear to me), I appreciate it lots when a real grrl steps off the pedestal. It helps me make my own ladies more breathable. Or however you’d put that.
And, yes, I recognize the male antecedent of Lily’s phrase. No need to state the obvious in comments.
