I absolutely HATE this word! http://www.catforum.com/viewtopic.php?t ... 053cf68aa1

It's obviously not viewed as vulgar by most, or it would have been edited out automatically. I don't understand it, though. How vulgar! Kids are reading this, and I guarantee you they are getting detention if they are using the word at school I don't like to have to see it myself, and I don't know a respectable person who would use it. Bring on Jerry Springer.

Excuse me, but this is s pet peeve. I don't appreciate Zelensia using "dammed" to get around the rules, either. We're a family site. AARGH!

I'm not a fan of it either. Sort the liquid equivalent of the word ****. I unfortunetly used **** and **** all the time myself though. :( They've been engrained into my head now as "safe" words.

Speaking of - I've notice a shocking rise in swears on Canadian broadcasting. Most news programming is phasing out bleeping on interviews (and yes that includes the s and f words).

And last night I had the CTV program "11th Hour" on last night (it's a drama about a news program) which was on at 10pm I believe, and it not only used the f word a lot, but also female nudity from the waste up. Kinda shocked as it's pretty well a "primetime" show in a way - on late but advertised extensively. It did have warnings, but so does CSI.

I think ****, **** and shi* are commonly used. I use them when I'm angry, but never at school! If parents use them at home, that''s their concern, but I don't think anything labeled as "family entertainment" should use questionable terms.

You're right, Bean. The media is getting looser and looser with language and what is portrayed. Heaven forbid that the porn films beat them out of some money! The kids learn things pretty young on their own. We don't have to help to teach them crass language.

GRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

*Of course, to **** someone, if we had that power, would be the most horrible thing a person could do to another. The word has lost its power, so people are using language they think is more powerful, especially the F word. I am so sick of hearing that word repeatedly ini movies and seeing in in books. I guess we'll just have to come up with something that sounds worse when F loses its shock value! George Carlin made a recording of the seven words you can't say on tv to show that people give these words their power. The four letter words, according to etymology (study of word origins) were medical terms in medieval Germany.
