It's moronic. Intelligent people understand that works are 
meaningless. Shit means nothing except in thee mind. Anyone that 
gets offended by shit but not poop or feces are idiots... as are 
people who are ok with copulate or sex and not fuck.

The problem with these works is their multiple meanings. When 
someone says shit or fuck or any other word I don't generally 
think of the fecal material or the sex act... so, really it shows 
that the people who get offended have a serious mental issue 
since they interpret these words in the most vulgar way.

It just goes to show you... it's no different than the word 
nigger. It's just a word, like any other word...

The word originated in the 18th century as an adaptation of the 
Spanish negro, a descendant of the Latin adjective niger which 
means black.

Basically it means black... but we can't use it because it's 
"offensive" because some psychopaths used it. People are morons. 
Most of the time they have no direct connection to the word but 
just perpetuate the problem.

E.g., maybe it would be offensive to slaves who were abused and 
in which that word was connected to he abuse... but for some 
black person today who has ever been a slave any more than any 
white slave but yet gets even more upset than the real slave goes 
to show they have no concept of what is going on.

Words are meaningless, we give them meaning by our reactions... 
and some people just love to overreact to words. Context is 
EVERYTHING and yet some people are totally clueless about it.

For example, if I were to call you a fucktard in some language 
you couldn't understand and did it with a smile, you would not 
have a negative reaction.

In fact, you can do this with animals... they go off the context. 
  You can say "I'm going to kill you" with a nice voice and they 
will wag their tail. If you say "I love you" in a very angry 
voice they tuck their tail.

Only humans fuck up the communications channel... I suppose 
because of the mass indirect communications we use. In any case, 
it's not my problem... I'm not the one offended by them, so those 
that are can fuck off!
