Look, if you nicely tell me that swearing makes you uncomfortable and you politely ask me not to, I will stop immediately and speak nicer than a nun.
But if you start acting like you’re on some fucking high horse, or telling me that I’m going to Hell for talking the way that I do and you can’t “be around that kind of language” then you can bet your motherfuckin’ ass that I’ll be fucking cussing like a cunt-fuckin’ sailor you maggot-ridden piece of dick.
“By the first world war, soldiers swore so much that the word 'fucking' came to function as no more than 'a warning that a noun is coming'.”—Holy Sh*t: A Brief History of Swearing by Melissa Mohr - A Review
Signal boost to other schools
If you live in the North Jersey area or anywhere around there you’ve probably hear about this “swear-not-to-swear” pledge at Queen of Peace High School. It is the most sexist thing I’ve ever had to witness. On Friday, this pledge was put into action. It FORCED all of the girls in school to stand up and make this pledge. Yes, it is in the student handbook to not curse in school, but this pledge was not made for that reason. It was made to make the female student body “More lady like,” in the exact words of the faculty member who initiated the pledge. This school DOES NOT have the right to set the standards for women, and certainly does not have the right to tell young women what being a lady is. Even though they did brush upon the fact that men shouldn’t swear in the presence of a woman, that is (in itself) and extremely sexist comment seeing that they didn’t make the men pledge not to swear. It’s okay for men to curse but not for women? This is 2013, not the Renaissance era.
As a male student in this school, EVEN I FIND IT DEMEANING AND DOWNGRADING OF THE FEMALE STUDENTS TO FORCE THEM TO TAKE THIS PLEDGE!!! If you’re going to make the female students more “lady like,” then you should have the men be more “gentlemen like,” or just abandon this plan overall, It is an extremely sexist pledge that should be petitioned off. It is NOT FEMINISM as the school is trying to make it sound like.
PLEASE IF YOUR SCHOOL IS TRYING TO MAKE A PLEDGE SIMILAR TO THIS STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS!!! WOMEN ARE WOMEN, NO MATTER IF THEY SHOUT OBSCENITIES OR ARE PRINCESSES OR ARE PRINCESSES WHO SHOUT OBSCENITIES!!! DON’T LET YOUR SCHOOL FORCE YOU TO BE SOMEONE WHO YOU’RE NOT!!!
