I Hate The F Word
And I HATE that's it's used for emphasis with everything anybody says or sings or writes now. I'm not "out of touch" with peoples' "freedom" to talk how they want or the curse police wagging my finger at offenders; but twenty years ago, that was the worst word anybody could say and was reserved even among my (then) peers for when things were really a lost cause and you got really really steamed at something. It was an immature, juvenile and filthy word then and it still is. It's increased use in no way makes it more acceptable to me. I hate it more now than I ever have. Never dreamed I'd hear that word standing in a grocery store being played overhead. Or hearing school girls say it like they're talking about a new jacket or a pair of earrings. Now, bring it on in all of your comments, because since I've already said I hate it, I know there are those of you who just can't resist the opportunity to offend me further. I won't read them anyway.
