It is perplexing that despite the lengthy and pervasive legacy of expletives, certain populations or environments prohibit their utterances. At this point, it is almost inconceivable that an individual could actually take offense to such a generic, ubiquitous word as “fuck”. It is obvious that those who take offense are foolish, as they are partaking in a delusional exercise of superficial superiority. Any utterance of the word is an excuse to be offended by their brutish company, as the refined literati have no use for such vile speech. This is one of the many, many telltale signifiers of ignorance, and is apt to incite much frustration.
Often overlooked, however, is the symbiotic necessity both parties have for one another. Without the snub-nosed, rigid-spined people to take offense, expletives are stripped of their potency. And without the swearers, there is one less thing to savor being offended by.
