Píča

Píča

Píča (IPA2|piːʧa), sometimes short piča or pyča (IPA| [pɪʧa] ), is a Czech and Slovak profanity that refers to the vagina similar to the English word cunt. It is often represented as a symbol of a rhombus standing on one of its sharper tips; both of these tips are connected by a vertical line representing a vulva. Sometimes the symbol is appended by beam-like lines surrounding the rhombus, symbolising pubic hair.

The meaning is clear for most Czechs and Slovaks. In some other Slavic languages it has other spellings, but similar pronunciation. Drawing this symbol is considered a taboo, or at least unaccepted by mainstream society.Fact|date=June 2008

ymbol in culture

This symbol has occurred in a few Czech movies, including Bylo nás pět. In the 1969 drama "The Blunder" (Ptákovina), Milan Kundera describes the cruel fate of a student who drew the symbol on a blackboard. [Jan Čulík, "Milan Kundera", 2000, [http://www.arts.gla.ac.uk/slavonic/kundera.htm electronic version] on University of Glasgow website] Jaromír Nohavica confessed, in the 1983-song "Halelujá", to "drawing short lines and rhombuses on a plaster" (in Czech "tužkou kreslil na omítku čárečky a kosočtverce").Fact|date=June 2008 A customised version of the symbol with three vertical lines inside the rhombus is a logo for the musical group Tři sestry (Czech "Three sisters").
