Just like I find wussy, friggin, freakin, s-bomb, f-bomb all offensive.
All those are terms used by shock jocks to get past FCC sensors.
N-word, is simply a term that Johnnie Cochran used very successfully to convince a jury and the rest of America that the word ****** is so offensive as to not be said in open court while TV cameras are present.
It was a tool he used to sway a jury, and he used it well.
That trial in my opinion was the start or at least escalation of the word ****** becoming more and more offensive. I really doubt that Johnny Cochran even considered what impact the term would have outside of that trial.
I can go on radio or TV and say freakin, but not fuckin. Does anyone really not know what I was meaning when I said it?
I can say S-bomb, but not shit, F-bomb but not fuck, n-word but not ******, wussy, but not pussy....Guess what, you and everyone else knows exactly what you mean either way, but some prudish twit convinced the world that one is more acceptable than the other.
What if you have never heard the word fuck? If I then said to you "the F-word" what would you be thinking I mean, Frog? French toast?
What if you had never heard the word ****** and I said to you N-word? Am I saying nose? Nincompoop?
I find it amazingly funny that some people are willing to surrender all control of their emotions simply by someone saying ******.
If you are willing to surrender your emotions over a single word, you can be put on tilt at any time simply by someone speaking one word. Don't let me know that. I'm an opportunistic bastard that will use it against you at a time of my choosing.
I don't care if that word is ******, cunt, popsicle, frog, kitten...
Take a good look at this post. I did not put any asterisks in this post.
Just as many women are offended by the word Cunt, as blacks are by the word ******, yet this forum or the writers of this software are OK with letting cunt show. Something is fucked up about that.
Does anyone besides me find it laughable that ****** gets asterisked out yet Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, Cocksucker, Motherfucker, and Tits all remain intact?
FYI those are George Carlin's 7. http://www.erenkrantz.com/Humor/SevenDirtyWords.shtml
I guess people have forgotten the simple nursery rhyme. Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.
For all those that can't wait to label me a racist, before you send me PMs, negative feedback and groan me, first ask yourself what the odds are that I might really give a fuck. Hint: you should not need a calculator to figure these odds.
