WWJD? Not This, One Hopes

Oh, Sweet Porn Divides a Family

I especially love the father’s quote comparing porn to crack cocaine. He probably kept a few of his son’s best mags, being sure they were hidden away from his wife. Source: Michigan man sues parents for $86,000 for tossing his porn collection – ABC News

Foul, Offensive Language vs Curse Words

So if I say the word ‘fuck’ or ‘shit’, some people will be offended. Someone might say “I’d prefer you not use such words’. I get it, that person’s sensibilities have been bruised by what is commonly deemed a curse word. What I don’t get is this: using one curse word is to some a great offense, but having a president who denigrates war heroes, abases the parents/spouse of a fallen soldier, panders to white nationalists, gives crude nicknames to others while on the national stage  –  this is a-okay, no problem. Well, I call bullshit on this. One four-letter word upsets some people no matter the circumstances. Seriously though, isn’t it more vulgar and obscene to do as our president has done in the above cited instances? I mean, those utterances by Trump are what I find fucking offensive. That is the most foul kind of language there is, and yet some prim and proper folks go into fainting spells when they hear ‘fuck’. These same people too often give our president a pass when he goes off on a private citizen, denigrating them in front of the entire fucking world. That’s just messed up.
