i was called out for one use of the word “suck”. i suppose i do try to be reasonabily clean in my language-use here, knowing the wrath i would needlessly bring down otherwise.

Why are you “trying” to be reasonably clean? Shouldn’t our language be reasonably clean always? I am currently struggling with this
with my teenager as well,and he’s a Christian What is reasonably clean anyway?
I ended up with PG…but not for language…for subject matter. geesh!
I just tried it again and it came “G” because there is no bad language. Whatever…I am not going to edit my blog! :)
Wow you’re getting flack for saying “trying”! Imagine what would of happened if you got a P.G. rating.
For “Suck?” When did suck become bad??? Do the people that get so uptight about this – realize how many “clean” words that are used by not just kids, but adults – originate from sexual connotation or are a variation of another swear word???
I’m sorry – but I get upset over things like this. What words ARE we allowed to say?
Goshdarnit – geewillikers! Jeepers!
Didn’t mean it be flack Chris, just thought
it was interesting. It’s a current situation
I’m in, I work in a secular environment where
the language can be pretty harsh,and I find
it interesting when I hear the saame language
from my youth or our leaders. What is
My wife and I were surprised to see you use “wtf” in a blog recently. Didn’t offend me as I see it all the time in youth’s blogs and stuff, just surprised me. Is there an alternative “G” or “PG” translation of “wtf” that I don’t know about?
howie, if a replacement word is what you require, consider “frick”, “flip”, or “frig”, all of which i have heard people use.
Thanks Marko! That works. :) I’ve actually had youth get on my case for using “suck”, so I’ve worked on eliminating it from my vocab. I used to use “pissed” as well, and have worked that one out.
I just posted about this and your rating.
