A Rather F—king Timely Note on Swearing

Posted By on Thu, May 16, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Dear Readers Who Are Offended By Harsh Language:

From a post on Jezebel yesterday, "Fuck Your Delicate Sensibilities, I'm Going to Swear as Much as I Want":

The problem is that people mistake the "language is powerful" argument for "it stings my granny when you say the fuck word." The history of swear words is interesting, but swear words themselves don't matter one fucking bit. Swear words are what people whine about when they want a cheap way to derail an argument. Swear words are for people who don't have anything real to complain about. I wish my life (or, at least, my awareness of the shit going on in the world) was simplified to the point where swearing could be my top priority—where swearing could be worth complaining about. But fuck that.

Please read the whole fucking thing right here.
