Word usage and other stuff

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

My take on words and maby yours. and other stuff like that.

Recently I have been thinking about word usage and their meanings. Why is it that the F-word is considered bad when it is just a word. I mean I could say box and that could be a deragatory term to some people. A word only has meaning or has the meaning that you want it to have such as F**K, you may use it in many different ways such as I would like to F**K that girl in the A**, or F**K you, or F***in' A! I mean if you really think about it a word only has meaning unless you want it to and its really annoying when you have to conform to society on what words are bad and which ones are considered "acceptable". Also why is it that a word is only a word if it is in the dictionary. I mean why can't I go around making new words without having the English majors board accepting it and put it into the dictionary with a meaning behind it. I know I might not be the only one with some of these views but I am really annoyed by all this and that I have to do what society says is acceptable like smoking at 18+ is only allowed, why is that, can only people who are older that 18 handle cigaretts? What about alcolhol, same thing only people who are over 21 able to handle a beer? Even porno... what about that? EDIT: This has also been bothering me for a while, Why cant i go and make or purchase my own airplane and fly it in the sky? Can one actually own the sky? why is this? Is one party trying to control the whole planet like the government of the US? I would like to know why I cant go and fly my own airplane around without having to register it with the FAA or some stupid shit like that. Another one is driving, but that would open up a whole other box that I dont want to see right now because what results of it would not be exactly "pretty" in terms of society feels.

    There is no logical reason for the concept of "bad words", it's all BS based on ancient superstition and unrelated issues of manners and politeness. These is valid reason, however, behind the illegality of drugs & alcohol to minors. For example that before a certain age, the liver can not break down alcohol in nearly the same capacity or speed that an adult's liver can, thus making alcohol usage more harmful to the body. Plus, there's the question immaturity in decision making, and issues of peer pressure that could lead to increased amounts of smoking and drinking with younger and younger children. Of course the affect these substances have on a persons body vary quite a lot as our bodies do not mature at the exact same rate and there are a bunch of other factors (weight, gender, etcetc), so the age limits are set to a general age when the body should be able to withstand these substances fairly well and the person is mature enough to make decisions about his or her usage.

    I agree with you there because as you said it is BS Also why cant I go abroad saying BOX like the F - word, if I did that would it become a bad word? like the B - word or something?

    I have a habit of saying instead of perkele (eng=satan), I say peruna (eng=potato). That doesn`t made it bad word, does it?

    It would only be a bad word if you want it to be, A word only has meaning unless you put meaning behind it and want it to mean that. Otherwise its just like grunting and stuff, but that can also be interperted many different ways like saying Fuck off bitch( the reason I did not star it because it is a word, and words dont have meaning unless you WANT IT to.)

    As long as you don't curse in every sentence that you type (*cough* ClanFever *cough*), it's fine with me. Curse words really don't bother me since I'm so accustomed to them.

    See you said as long as you dont curse in every sencentce, what im trying to get other people to see is that other words can be made into bad words if you want it to and that everything is not as it at first seems.
