Why do references focus on woman sexuality when one uses curse and swearwords? Moving on from this question, in this piece of study, in which the approach towards women is examined in the context of slang expressions and curse, the data that has been acquired by the shifting through the work called "The Great Slang Dictionary" (Büyük Argo Sözlüǧü) by Hulki Aktunç, are recognized as indicators. It is possible to observe the flourishing judgment based on the estimation that there is a one-to-one relationship between language and sex, in the slang and curse usage. The slang and curse, which can prove that the "woman" has been seen as the "other"-when considered in terms of both cultural and linguistic codes- in patriarchal societies as it could also be viewed in the examples provided in the study, becomes a fact that one encounters as a field and a style of speech in the sovereignty of men.
