I love to swear. Over the years my language has become very blue. It could be years of working in newsrooms with a bunch of men and fighting to get heard. It could also be because over time society just finds cursing more acceptable. I remember back in the 1980s when it would be shocking to hear the s-word in a movie let alone the f-word. Now on British network TV after 9 p.m. talk show hosts and their guests are dropping f-bombs left, right and center.
And it’s precisely because we’ve become a bit of a sweary society that there is one special word I like to reserve for people who especially pi** me off. When I use it I spit it out with emphasis and disdain because it’s the last shocking word left. But this celeb mom dropped it on social media, in relation to her kids and some people are having a meltdown.
