Oh! So I can thank you here then for finally providing an explanation for the chatter I've been reading about "Loki called her the C-word!". Because my initial reaction was "WUT. In a PG-13... I... shouldn't I have noticed that!?" Glad to see it was "in translation", I wondered if that was the case... because otherwise I would have clearly needed my hearing checked. The reason I never caught it is simply because I had never in my life heard the word "quim" before.

Coincidentally, I feel sooooo torn on this. Oh, archaic misogynyspeak, why must you sound so amusing to my modern ears?
I'm serious, I can't... I know "quim" is Ye Oldie Speak for the c-word, but it sounds so FUNNY if you don't know that. So do "harlot" (which makes me think of harlequins) and "trollop" (mushrooms!) and "strumpet" (possibly an edible musical instrument!). All terribly sexist, horrible words, and yet they're far, far too entertaining to say. *sigh*

We had a 400-comment close-reading/meltdown/discussion over the Quim Scene on my personal journal the week the movie came out, and... as far as my blood pressure is concerned, it never happened and we will never speak of it again. I think the two Avengers discussion entries neared 900 comments total because of that. And if there's another entry I've had to close comments on, I can't remember what it is. So. I mean. Yeah. I was very careful to sidestep that argument entirely when writing up that part here.
