Foul Language – Particularly the “F” Word in American Culture

Perhaps we should have seen this coming, or maybe we believed in the power of common decency too much.

Foul language pervades American society like an ill-natured tapeworm – rapidly growing within a human’s bowels. The elicit gibberish resounds everywhere, often receiving accolades from the arts and entertainment industries, encroaching upon youth who innocently (or not so innocently) dismiss it as prudish to be offended by such common, everyday lingo. This is their world, after all, a world where gutter talking, over sexed and drug using celebrities blur the lines of true role models in society. These same people have duped the world of comedy and its’ followers into believing that loud mouth broads and vulgar, abusive males (no, these are not real men, by any stretch of the imagination), debilitated by their own stupidity, deserve higher ratings than people of average or above average intelligence.

In the name of self-expression, celebrity status and humor, America has made it acceptable to utter the “F” word without blushing. Perhaps we should have seen this coming, or maybe we believed in the power of common decency too much. Whatever the reason or cause, it’s here. It’s in our music. It’s in our movies and television programs. It comes out of our kids mouths as easy as the word Mom. What it is not is acceptable language that should be used in place of every other word, to be tough, cool or funny. Using foul language and particularly the “F” word is an embarrassing trend, which taints American society and leaves a trail of inferior commentary in its wake.
