Oh, Darn It

Back in college, i remember a lecturer telling us how much she hates the term "hot chicks". According to her, women are not to be referred to as animals--there's nothing "hot" about it at all. Needless to say, "bitches" isn't her favourite word either. While i have no problem with either words, i see and respect her point-of-view.

What annoys me are women who create a scene when the term "bitch" is used but have no problem being referred to as a "chick". If you're gonna hate on one--for equalising women to animals--and not the other, you're just going to end up looking stupid.

Which is also pretty much the case with people who use "fark", "biatch" and other misspelled vulgarity on their social network sites. Like hello? Do you think changing a few letters would make the word any less vulgar? If the reason for such action is to prevent others from picking up the bad words, well, i hate to break it to you but people aren't so stupid to not know that "fark" is actually "fuck". If you're already cursing and influencing others, the least you can do is teach others how to spell it right. If you don't want to pass on the bad habit to others, then don't swear at all. Geez.
