Romanian profanity (from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


These are words generally used of or toward a person, expressing strong distaste in them or their actions.

Fundaş, poponar, curist, bulan and găozar all refer to male homosexuals, roughly the equivalent of "faggot", literally meaning something like "ass user". All of these words are derived from other slang words relating to the anus or buttocks. A word formed in a similar manner is pizdar, which is a womanizer or "skirt-chaser": someone who is obsessed with women. Bulangiu, which is generally translated as "faggot", is used of a man who doesn't want to do something that he should do. It is a harsher equivalent of "slacker". There are many other words referring pejoratively to male homosexuals, but those discussed here are generally the most common.

A puţoi is the possessor of a puţă (see below). It is used either as an insult towards someone suspected of having a small penis, or a rough equivalent to "punk", that is, an immature boy that tries to act "tough".

Nenorocit, originally an old popular phrase, that literally translates as "unlucky", is now used in a powerfully pejorative sense, similarly to "motherfucker" in English. It is used mostly in the vocative form "nenorocitule".

Lăbar and labagiu are rough equivalents of jerk-off. They are used to describe a male who masturbates more often than is absolutely necessary.

Peşte, which literally means fish, colloquially refers to a pimp. The women who work for a peşte are: curvă, târfă, traseistă, botanista and muistă. Muistă & botanistă refers to a prostitute who specializes in fellatio. There is a male equivalent, muist that means "cocksucker" and generally refers to a homosexual male. Târfă also means "bitch" in some contexts.
