Well, what they spoke here is "你妈逼的", which normally is a swear term in Chinese, much like those four-lettered words.

However, it can also mean "your mother forced it" or "your mother made it so". "逼" means "force", but in Chinese colloquialism, it also means female private parts. (In fact, there is another character for the private parts, but most people use this one in written form.)

I think the book which some expat spoke of sometime ago in this forum (on swearing in Chinese) might help you understand or this.

No offense here meant. But it's just so much fun listening to this heated exchange.
