Journal Entry: Fri Jan 11, 2013, 5:37 PM

Its that time again when Ry ponders on the many wonderful things in life, this time he ponders into the english language and into the supposedly rude and vulgar curse word: F*CK

Of course I understand there may be people who freak out just by seeing the word so I have taken the effort of censoring it, but if you still faint by the sight of the censored word then I highly suggest you leave the page And browse through my pretty artworks in the gallery instead. OK? All easily sensitive people left the room? Kids into bed? Good good. So right, I don't use the F word much as I don't see the vulgarness in it, to me it feels like an everyday word that shouldn't be used because some people may not like it, its just one of those things you know? Same goes to words like 'dwarfs' 'eskimos' 'black' 'bitch (As in calling a female dog)', like these words falls into the grey area and they ain't very safe to use, so some people don't use it including me, I don't throw these words around much because its too risky. But the F word, as mentioned by Stephen Fry in a show I watched, he talked about how he can't understand why F*ck is such a bad word when it literally just means sex, there are worse words than that like Kill or Rape or Murder or Torture. Yet we use these words everyday and it doesn't sound that bad, 'Oh I am gonna kill you!' 'I got raped so hard in League of Legends' 'We got murdered today in soccer' 'This maths class is torture..' While F*ck, the only thing keeping humanity from extinction is somehow considered bad, if an alien is to come to Earth and look at our language system it may get confused, it would wonder why a word that means reproduction is considered vulgar, while killing and murder and rape ain't as bad.

I was talking to my mum about this the other day and she got really offended, she was saying how there is something satanic about the F word, there's something dark about it, something that's not right, yet she can't really specify what it is. It's really odd, its like we get offended by things we don't fully understand. I then went deeper and think of how the word could be used in a sentence to make it even more offensive, like 'I f*cked your mum last night!' ... mmm thats offensive because you had sex with the person's mum right? But have you considered the factors? If the person's mum is like 60 years old and ugly, then what benefits does that have on me? Ok something better 'I f*cked your girlfriend! And she enjoyed it' ok now thats more harsh, but then again it wasn't like 'I raped your girlfriend!', its I f*cked. So its like a consent situation then? Did she enjoy it? Was it what was lacking in our relationship? Did she needed that? If it satisfied her needs and in turn saving a dying relationship, then it doesn't sound as bad, it might even be a good thing on the long term. Compared that with 'I murdered your girlfriend.' You know what I mean?

Now the question is, do we need a stronger word to curse? If there IS a need to curse. Language is very interesting, especially curse words in other language, I'm sure you have come across a situation where you meet a classmate who's from another country and you ask them to teach you their language, very often you end up learning the swear words XD I have no idea why, but I do that too. So like if I do end up going to that country, the only thing I can do to the local is to swear at their face? Anyway in Cantonese the three most offensive ones are, the obvious 'F*ck your mum' pronounced kinda like 'Diu ley ah ma!' but we have covered that one already, I got a feeling in every languages there's at least one intercourse with one's mum as a popular swear word in there. Ok the second one is more interesting, 'Tripping and falling on the street' pronounced in cantonese as 'Pook Guy' YUP HOW RUDE! You are walking on the street and then you accidentally tripped and you fall on the ground, thats pretty much it, nobody died, nobody came and took advantage of your body, you pretty much just fell on the ground... THE HUMILIATION RIGHT?! Ok WTF I don't understand the logic in that one at all, we already learnt from Batman that we fall so we can learn to pick ourselves up, so what's the big deal? Ok the third one, this third one I think is the MOST logical one, we don't really have that in the english language, it just doesn't sound right if spoken in english, but its 'Your whole family dies' in Cantonese its 'Hum Ga Charn', this one makes sense right? Everyone you loved in your family just suddenly dies. There's nothing worst than that, this one I can actually agree can be quite rude.

BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY THESE ARE ONLY OFFENSIVE IF THEY ACTUALLY HAPPENED. My family is still alive, my mum didn't have sex with you (I don't know why you would even wanna have sex with my mum in the first place), and I didn't fall on the ground without getting up again. So what does this mean? These are just words! If you really wanna be offensive to someone (I don't encourage it) then you should really put salt on their wounds, look at their family background and find offensive but realistic things to say. Or if someone is missing a leg you can go 'Hey you wanna come jogging with me?'. If someone's dad died in an explosion in the middle east, you start singing Bruno Mars' Grenade to them. Now thats rude! There are many creative ways to be rude and the F word isn't one of them, mmmm now what are some ways to stop the F word from being used offensively in our society. To be honest I think just... really don't think of it as rude, if you don't think its rude, and I don't think its rude then its not gonna be rude. Obviously you don't say it to kids, same how you don't talk about sex to kids. But once they reach that age where mummy and daddy needs to teach them about where babies come from, you teach them by reading the book 'Babies: How mummy and daddy f*cked'.

ORRRRR JUST BE NICE TO ONE ANOTHER. Don't be mean. Isn't that better? Ry-Spirit cares.

This is just like I wrote it, haha.

I think it's also much related to whether you're male or female. Whenever I said "F*ck you!" to a guy, they gave a dirty smirk. What I saw on their face was: "If you f*cked me, it would actually be a good thing! You didn't make me angry at all...I even like it!" So I don't use the word ._. But if a guy says it to another guy, things change...It might be something about domination. The act of f*cking (lol?) is usually a forceful thing, maybe it gives a feeling of dominating the other?

*sigh* I guess that is true...
But still it is a no no to swear, at least not out loud xD

Man I swear so much it's like it's my own language. LOL
I can just be in a conversation at school, and we're talking about cats, then i'm just:
"Oh my *bleep*, that cat is so *bleep*ing adorable, I just want to *bleep*ing hug it for *bleep*ing ever. Oh my *bleeeep*." Plus i'm a bit chubby so it's sort of like OMG chubby swearing person. xD

See to me using the word 'rape' out of context is far more offensive. One day someone will say that in front of someone who has actually been through it and really upset them because it's really not something to joke about.

before i read this journal, i read the art sale one first,
and i clicked into the "out of my faxking way" picture and saw a person complained about the title name
is this something to do with that? xd

and people normally says "diu lay lou mou" more than "diu lay ah ma" :iconsrapplz:

but i dont think you should think much about them swear words, since people have different opinions
if they dont like it, they dont like it i suppose :iconlazepoolplz:

i dont normally swears and i dont say them to people while im talking to them either
only when i tripped or dropped something then i will xDDD
they just come out so naturally \o/ :iconlazyshyplz:

oh and i do call people bitch too, but only in a joking way;;;;

cantonese's swear words somehow sounds more offensive to me, so i never say those :iconlazywaveplz:

Lol i didnt think of that, as in the person complained bout the swearing but i thunk it showed ppl do get offended so dats y i dnt say it. Chinese swear words does sound worst but i think its cos the chinese society is more sensitive towards it. They may think only lower class people say it, im sure theres a prejudice thing going on.. But i dnt use chinese swear words cos it sounds weird wen i say it.. It sounds kinda funny and ppl cant take me srs after.
