Yesterday was another of our lazy rambling Sundays with Riddhi. When I mentioned my last post, his immediate reacton was, "So what are the swear words in a matriarchal family?"
My guess was that even then perhaps, the father of the person you want to insult would'nt be touched.

Why is it that the worst insults you can think of are all about your mother?
I hadn’t thought of it this way:
Why aren't fathers the butt of insults so much as mothers? "The underlying idea is you're attacking what your rival came out of. That's why it's mothers rather than fathers who feature in the more potent insult. Everybody comes from their mother".
