Of the 600,000 plus words in the English language fuck is probably one of the most versatile and the most used. Yet for some bloody reason it remains the most censored, something I can't quite wrap my head around it.
I could go go on and on about how words are simply sounds clumped together for communication. I could go on and on about how these hodgepodges of noise mean nothing without the meaning behind them, their syntax and situation, their semantics. That, however, is really for another time and place. (In this case, another article)
What I wish to talk about is how pointlessly ignorant censoring
words like fuck, ass, cock, shit, god damn, and hobo really is.
You may have noticed that whenever these words are used on television they're bleeped out. Despite this it's hardly ever impossible to figure out the phrase used. It really is just censorship for the retarded.
