Is there something in Mandarin like "I don't give a f***", something that expresses the same sense of "I don't care" but with more force.

    Sorry to use Chinese. 本来“屌”和“鸟”是同音的(均为“屌”的音),后来人们觉得这样太不好了,就把鸟的读音变成niao了。@macskuz所以其实“关我鸟事”也是“关我屌事”的意思。《水浒传》里面经常用“鸟”来代替“屌”。

  • yes, 屌 means cock,but a HongKong famous singer named ZhouJieLun(周杰伦) use this word very often,many many young peope follow him in mainland of China,so it is used very common in all China area.

  • ZhouJieLun is a Taiwanese singer. The 屌 is used slightly differently and with border context in Hong Kong than in mainland China.

Strong but not vulgar answer: 我才不管


I don't give a f*** what he thinks




A direct translation would be:"我不在乎".

If you want to make an emphasis or show your anger, you could say:"爱咋咋的". "爱咋咋的" is more commonly used in Northern area, which literally means "[do] anything you like to[, I don't care.]", you can also simply say "随便”.


管他妈的, why didn't anyone suggest this?


Another - not very vulgar - option is 我不管.
