A large crater to dump my thoughts

Yes It’s Fucking Political

One of the things I find very strange about US television is the censoring of swearwords. Even if you have an issue with profanity then what use does beeping it out have? Everybody is going to know what word was censored. It’s all about meaning and context, not about individual words.

Swearing is self-expression and not (necessarily) a sign of a lack of vocabulary. Like so many things, it is best explained by Stephen Fry.
