"What color are you wearing?"
“Speaking of Blew, I’ve got something you can blow.”
“What color are you wearing?”
“Oh… Not blue?”
"Are you allergic to nuts?"
“Good, because I’m about to put some in your mouth.”
This is the picture to go with my recent blog post. I do NOT agree with this.
I was thinking about how much I hate censorship, so I Googled “what is wrong with swearing” to see what would come up. I found a bunch of irrelevant results, and this list. It could not be more wrong.
The reason swearing is taboo is that a swear is like a super adjective/adverb (or when used as a noun or verb, it sort of modifies itself). It shows intense emotion because whatever you’re saying is so important that you used the strongest possible wording for it.
What’s happening now with casual swearing by so many people is that everybody is that, in most cases, people are over exaggerating things. Sometimes they’re used for jokes or just because somebody has a very low vocabulary, but overall, people tend to just want their problems to sound really bad or their good happenings to sound really good.
Even if this is a problem, you can’t just censor whichever words you want. You can’t just say, “You know what, ‘the’ is now a swear. Anyone who says ‘the’ must now receive a punishment of…”
It’s fine to enforce the wrongness of using them around children, because it ingrains into them the idea of swears being for the times when you need to really show how strongly you feel, but once they have the idea, you’re just making them afraid to say what they truly mean. It doesn’t just restrict what words are said, it restricts them from sharing their true feelings with the world. That is all.
Some people practice abstinence to avoid STDs so they can live longer. Why do people want to live longer? In terms of natural selection, if they didn’t want to live longer, they wouldn’t live to reach reproductive age, and thus wouldn’t be able to reproduce. Therefore, those who don’t want to live longer tend to have less or no descendants. Those who do want to live longer tend to reproduce, and therefore are more represented in future generations. Therefore, people who practice abstinence solely for the purpose of avoiding STDs are not having sex in order to have more sex.
