What makes me really angry relating to swearing on television, is this: Who decides that swearing is bad? What is fundamentally wrong with saying "fuck"?
It's like calling a type of sexuality abnormal. First of all, 'normal sexuality' was defined by the brits in the 19th century, it's a Victorian invention..
Secondly, when a Norwegian writer were on trial for publishing a pornographic book in the 50s, the prosecuter said "In your book, you describe a scene where a woman is having sex with two men, one entering her vagina, the other her anus. Would you call this normal?"
The writer answered quite nicely "well, Sir, in medicine, that is called <insert medical term, can't remember>, and it's defined as a quite common abnormality."
But really. Why is swearing bad? I couldn't be bothered less if my future kids learned to swear, it's just human nature. But then again, normal human nature is scary for moralistic morons. I truely hate those sobs, I hope they get stabbed in the milt. I really do.
I found this on on IMDB which i found pretty funny
Jeremy Clarkson: [on the Corvette Z06] ... as something to live with every day, I'd rather have bird flu.
Agree totally.this is why they should re-screen an unedited version later on on a sunday night for the adult viewers. so they can leave in all the swearing, jokes and racism. that would be gold.
Well, to be honest, I'm not even sure if I'd like to call it 'bad language' at all. After all, we are only speaking about words, not actions. If we need to keep this horrible rolleyes language away from kids, then I suppose we should at the same time make it illegal to influence kids in any way, when it comes to politics or religion. I am not in favor of letting a government agency telling me what is good moral, and I am even more recentful towards letting a commercial agency decieding that. If I think my children need to be shielded from bad language, then I don't let them watch TV.kids today will pick up all the bad language under the sun in the bloody play ground, they'll even invent some of their own. infact me an my mates use the words, shit, fuck, bastard, bitch, dick, cock, cvnt, etc etc etc on a daily basis...they're not even remotely shocking anymore. of course we only do that among friends, not when talking to certain others like lecturers, and thats the thing...for us we understand when we can and cant use swearing, we understand that its not advtageous to run your mouth when you want something from someone, or your speaking to a superior.
Clarkson: I can guarantee that your barrier won't stop the mini.
Hammond: Why's that
Clarkson: Two reasons really, firstly it's not substantial enough and mainly because you've built it in front of this slope, and the mini's coming down that one.
Hammond: Right .. a few adjustments.
Clarkson (Killing himself with laughter) : You complete and total ... did no-one tell you?
Hammond: No - Obviously.... OR I'D HAVE BUILT IT OVER THERE! :lol:
