Or in this case where it's completely out of the intended context. You hit it square on the head. The question though in terms of how extreme a word it is (regardless of context) has to do with the word itself, not necessarily what I'm talking about. (And for the record, I originally started this discussion with maturity analysis in mind so make of that as you will.)Are you asking if perverted in that context is extreme dialogue or insulting? It's not. In that context, it just means that something has been changed or warped, usually in a bad way.
Even if I did, the fact is that when I end up using that word on some real-life consequence and my family is involved, they literally go "ten commandments" on me for doing so. (Never mind that we're all guilty of at least some form of that madness.) That more than anything is where the cultural reference is derived from, in case it helps to understand my intent.I think that "a godd***ed lack of understanding" would hardly count as a "cultural zinger". Very anodyne. It looks to me as if you might be over-estimating what counts as extreme.
