Using the power of 1000 GET I resurrect the terminology thread! I also banish "cuckcake" as a term forever.
By the power of numerals let it be done.
>Why's "cuckquean" spelled funny?
Orality and Literacy in Early Middle English edited by Herbert Pilch 1996 pp26 (https://books.google.com/books?id=jBVIrowvY_sC&lpg=PA26&ots=wgirgXLRdr&pg=PA26&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=false)
is part of a long section on the translation of the Middle English "quene" and mentions that the Middle English Dictionary shows the root as OE cwene- a) a woman; b) a lowborn woman … harlot … term of abuse; but OE cwēn - a) a pre-eminent female noble… … etc.
It goes on to explain quean and queen as having their distinctions in the Old English roots of cwene and cwēn. Bascially queen evolved from a term of high praise while quean evolved from a derogatory one.
shows Old English cwene "woman," also "female serf, hussy, prostitute" (as in portcwene "public woman"), but I don't know where they sourced that from.
Less reliable wiki sources are somewhat confused. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/cwen
under derived terms shows cwene (woman, wife, prostitute), but https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/cwene
shows its definition as simply a woman. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/quene
also lists the Old English root of "quene" being cwene "woman, wife, prostitute"
>What's all this "compersive" and "humiliation" I keep seeing mentioned?
Compersion is joy in another's pleasure. You already know what humiliation means. Compersive cuckqueans do not feel humiliated by their men fucking other women and get their kick out of the joy they feel while he does it. Humiliation-driven cuckqueans feel humiliated by their men fucking other women and get their kick out of this humiliation. The two tend not to understand each other very well, and humiliation-driven cuckqueans tend to ignore the existence of their compersive cousins.
