Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If they were calling the scumbag lawyer a "cunt", you'd have a point. Though I wonder if you'd have complained if they called him a "prick"?

They're carefully picking "scumbag" precisely because it isn't sexual in nature.

There aren't many really nasty insults left in English when you start pruning the sexual ones, and you can't have scumbag.
