"****"

"****"

So yeah, Bold or Italic doesn't change anything.

It's the "C" word that you can "rap" with.


I said ONE letter, one.

personally, I think it is wrong that we censor language
not because of any "freedom of speech law," but for the simple fact that it is language
the only thing inappropriate about the word b i t c h is that we say it is inappropriate
so why do we make such a big deal about it?

It's a big deal because certain people like to give that specific word to females exclusively (and men who display feminine characteristics) and load it with a whole lot of hatred behind it.

As said in the other thread, it's not the word itself that's offensive, it's how it's used.
