I saw this brilliant piece of art the other day and posted it to my Facebook wall. And it got me thinking, you know, as shit like this tends to do.
I swear a lot. It’s worked its way into my vocabulary just as casually as putting on a sweater. I use the word fuck as an adjective, a noun, a verb, an adverb and pop it into any sentence that needs a little emphasis or colouring.
Now, since I am 100% against assholery, I am able to omit it in certain settings. I turn it of when working with children or at my bartending job. But I swear around my own children. Because its my house and I make the rules here.
I tell my kids that saying “grown up” words is one of those things that you have be a grown up to use. And that even when you use them, you have to make sure you know your audience.
For example: Going to a job interview and dropping a couple of f-bombs is probably not in your best interest if you want to land the job. Colouring a good story with a couple of “fuckins” and “holy shits” at school is probably going to land you in hot water.
But seriously, once you’re a grown up, why does it even fucking matter? Why is it “profanity”? Why are people so damn offended by this language?
The world has become an Offend-A-Thon when it comes to petty nonsense like this. Some Cockbucket decided that swearing is offensive and now we’ve got shit like “no swearing” policies in the workplace. Seriously? How about you go and figure out how to do your job and stop monitoring the adjectives coming out of my mouth? I am 39 years old. Get a a grip and find something enlightening to share with the world besides your ability to be a completely useless human being.
We live in a place where not everyone has clean running water. Where women make less money than men for doing the same job with the same qualifications. Where law enforcement can shoot a man because of assumptions they made due to the colour of his skin.
Where health care isn’t considered a human right. Where wars rage over oil and religion. People are starving while some of us throw out extra food. Children are being exploited and abused.
Shall I go on, or do you get the point?
The point is, FIND SOMETHING ELSE TO BE OFFENDED ABOUT YOU CUNTS. All this shit going on in the world and some asshole has time to get all worked about the words coming out of my mouth? Can we please expend our energy into actually making the world a better place rather than worrying about whether I swore at you?
I’ll make you a deal. I’ll stop using the word Fuck, when someone finds a way to solve all these Fuckworthy problems in the world. Stop giving me so much shit to swear about and I’ll clean up my mouth.
In the meantime, I will continue to delight you all with my Mouth of Potty.
