I’m not a swearblogger. I hardly ever swear on my blog, I have no problem at all with the likes of DK, Obo and Steve Shark swearing on their blogs, and in fact I find it very entertaining especially when it’s inventive. I do sometimes wonder though, how much they swear in real life?
I swear a lot in real life. I have a customer-facing job so I can’t swear in front of them, but in staff-only areas and outside of work I swear like a trooper. And yes, I quite often steal the more offensive, inventive and amusing offerings of those mentioned above, as well as others. I also find myself using the “C-Word” more and more often, and have started to wonder about this.
Years ago, I never used it. Then I started using it occasionally, and only when confronted by persons truly deserving of such an extreme and shocking (as it was then) profanity. Now? I use it all the time. I thought that perhaps it was a combination of the devaluation of the word’s shock value and a habit on my part. However, having recently given it some serious thought I’ve come to a shocking conclusion.
The world is full of cunts, and it’s getting worse.
I’m right, aren’t I? Just take a look around you. Nobody has any respect for anybody else anymore. When was the last time you held a door for somebody behind you? Did they look surprised? They do every time I do. I get the impression it doesn’t happen much anymore.
People push, and they shove, and they treat their fellow humans as objects to be moved out of the way rather than respected and respect to be offered back, in turn.
Ever watch Jeremy Kyle? These people aren’t freaks, this is par for the course. At least nowadays. This behaviour is normal.
And so, here I am using a word that at one time I thought too offensive. Yet, now it doesn’t seem offensive enough! As people get worse and worse, it just doesn’t seem strong enough to describe them and I am unaware of any more shocking and outrageous word to use. I’m in a fix and no mistake.
