🇳🇱8 Dutch Swear Words for Your Cursing Pleasure 🇳🇱

I spent a year in The Netherlands when I was in high school. I have retained very little Dutch other than some swear words. Here's what I remember. Keep in mind this was 20+ years ago so I don't know if Dutch folks still swear like this now.
  1. 1.
    Godverdomme!
    "Goddamnit!" A swear word that pretty much every American or English speaking person learns immediately because the Dutch use it a lot. However religious folks in Holland find to really offensive. But there surprisingly aren't that many super religious people there. At least not that I can remember.
  2. 2.
    Klootzak
    "Asshole!" Actually it literally translates to "ball sack" ie. scrotum. But it basically used like someone would call another person an asshole.
  3. 3.
    Rotzak
    "Asshole!" A variant of klootzak, used in the same manner but literally translates to rotten or diseases testicles.
  4. 4.
    Lul
    "Dick" as in "don't be such a dick" sort of way. It literally translates to penis. It's kind of a mild swear word.
  5. 5.
    Kutwijf
    "Bitch" It gets used a lot as way like "oh she's such a bitch" but it literally translates to c*nt wench or c*nt wife. So maybe it's a little more aggressive than just "bitch".
  6. 6.
    Sletje
    Slut. It's actually the diminutive version of slut. The word "slet" means slut but the Dutch love making anything diminutive. Just there a "-je" at the end of practically any word and you'll sound like a native.
  7. 7.
    Klote/Kut
    Testicles/Vagina. These are basically the masculine and feminine versions of the same thing. The words can be used as a noun, verb or adjective. Closer to c*nt or balls really. But it's oddly used in phrases like "ik voel me kut" which literally translates to "I feel like c*nt" meaning I'm feeling under the weather. Or "het weer is klote" translating to "the weather is balls" meaning this weather is terrible. However if you call someone a Klote or Kut it's pretty offensive.
  8. 8.
    Kanker
    Cancer. The Dutch love to hurl insults at each other by telling them to go and get a disease. Or they'd just use it when they slammed their hand in a door or something. You trip over a rock and you'd yell out "Kanker!" like it was a terrible thing that just happened. Cancer, for whatever reason, is a popular disease to throw out as an insult. They stick it on everything. "Kankerhoer" means cancer whore. "Sterf aan Kanker!" means I hope you die of cancer! That sort of thing.
