I never understood the moral outrage over four letter words to begin with...

Why is shit worse than poop?

Why is fuck worthy of changing a movie rating, yet sex, screw, and all the other words that fuck can equate to are fine?

Why is ass ok, but not asshole?

I just don't get it. Why do some get all up in arms about these words yet some of those same folks don't care if the word nigger, fag, or actual hurtful phrases are used?

We were not allowed to say "oh my god" growing up. My parents didn't swear - my mom said "blankety blank" in lieu of cursing, and when my dad was really mad about something (usually work), he'd say "that G.D. guy."

Nowadays, I'll hear an occasional "ass" or "shit," which still shocks me when it comes out of their mouths.

You know what I think is weird about TV? It seems like you can say any variation of ass except "asshole." Is "asshole" the next taboo to be broken????

By the way, I clicked on the video and it is removed "due to terms of use violation", while on youtube, racist or other hateful material is considered as freedom of speech...

he a two pack a day 2 year old

I think the video is still here

The Don Draper Of Toddlers | Dlisted



and it is odd the motion pictures get an R rating for showing adults smoking
a perfectly legal behavior

and yet they manage to get in mayhem, eviscerations with a PG 13

and last I heard heinous murder was not legal

(unless it is done, in the name of fighting terror)

I never saw the video, but I heard the news story about that child. That's...really, really, horrendously stupid.

BVS, those are the very same questions I ask all the time. It's just a word. It only offends you if you let it offend you.

I miss George Carlin .

I can't help the fact that the child reminds me of this guy:



Very spoiled that it's similar to child abuse!

An ABC pilot called “Good Christian Bitches” has religious and women’s groups up in arms over what they describe as an extremely offensive and distasteful show title.

The dramedy, based on Kim Gatlin’s novel of the same name, will be brought to life by famed “Sex and the City” and “90210” executive producer Darren Star. The plot centers on the life of reformed “mean girl” Amanda, played by “Talladega Nights” actress Leslie Bibb, who returns to her hometown of Dallas to find herself fodder for malicious gossip from the women in the Christian community.

Still in the early stages, the pilot has not been guaranteed a spot on ABC’s lineup. And though the show’s title may change before it goes to broadcast, “Good Christian Bitches” is already causing uproar.

Christian publisher Tessie DeVore told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column that the show, which features the tagline “For Heaven’s sake, don’t let God get in the way of a good story!” could put Christians in an unfairly bad light.

“I find the title offensive. I don’t think those two words should be combined,” she said. “A show like this can damage perceptions [of Christians in this country].”

It also could be a slippery slope for future shows, said Melissa Henson, director of communications and public education for the Parents’ Television Council tells Tarts.

“In the past, we’ve raised concerns about changing language standards for television," Henson said. "Once a particular profanity or obscenity has been embraced by a particular show, it quickly becomes mainstream.”

And Yana Walton from the Women’s Media Center said Christians aren't the only ones who should be upset.

“It is not an appropriate term to use to describe any woman, regardless of their faith,” Walton said. “Entertainment media, especially music and films, have been normalizing misogynistic language for years.”

But despite the seemingly outrageous title, Dan Gainor, head of the Culture and Media Institute, is not surprised that the pilot has gone this far already.

“ABC is doubling down on the offensive by also approving ‘Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23,’ following up on the CBS show ‘$#*! My Dad Says.’ And this continued decline is unsurprising,” he said.

“The media keeps trying to redefine words and morality to mean what they say, not what they really do mean," Gainor added. "One wonders which network will be the first to drop the F-bomb in a TV title and whether the FCC will even intervene.”

Even if the title holds up, some are looking forward to the show.

“ABC’s core viewership is Christian, so the goal of the show won’t be to attack Christianity. Just like the book, this is a show by Christians, for (mostly) Christians, to enjoy a little prime-time self-deprecation,” Los Angeles-based entertainment expert, Jenn Hoffman said.

A representative for ABC declined to comment on the story.
