Watching Good Morning America this morning I learned that the word ‘fuck’ very well may be brought into primetime tv with in a few weeks. Apparently, those shows who use the word like Soprano’s et al. gain higher ratings than those who do not. And as long as the word is used as an Adjective and not a Verb, it will be allowed starting as early as next week. *
Personally, I do not think the F-Bomb is anything to get in a tizzy about. It has no religious connotations, is not gender or race specific, and is thought to simply be a swear.
Though I have heard it’s origins coming from the 19th century and meaning For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge…however, I do not have a cite for that.
So what do the teemings feel about this? Anyone not mind at all if it is allowed? Anyone offended? Why?
**I was unable to dig up a cite for this on the Good Morning America webpage…any help would be appreciated.
