Must we call each other turds?

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by HappyMe (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Seriously, I'm old but so offended by that word. Times change...I didn't watch the Super bowl but I'm glad they didn't have the Stones or anyone from my generation playing this year. My point is that it is so disrespectful to call anyone, regardless of age, by that disgusting word. You can't escape getting old, you just choose how to handle it. My husband and I still rock, thank you very much.

2. I agree

Using that word is like a turd in the punchbowl of civil society!

Cheers!

3. Your welcome. I would never call you a turd.

I don't mind being called a turd, just don't call me a punch bowl. Being called a turd in a punch bowl would offend me very much. That is where I would object to your "Freedomofspeech".

4. At 74, no words shock me.

My shock wore off when we became regular viewers of "Sopranos."

The swear words actually got to be funny, and a lot of crude phrases became acceptable to hear, maybe not to use.

When I lose my temper, I'm "f'n" everything withut saying the word in full.

"Sticks and stones" still works.

Oh, just looking way back, when my oldest son brought home "Beverly Hills Cops" for our new VCR, I thought it was the end of the world when I overheard the swearing, but watched it and laughed like hale.

7. Meh...if that was (offensive noun adjective here) turds, I'd be offended.

As it is since we descend from the first tube-within a tube life form, we are all, figuratively and zoologically speaking, turd sausages.

9. I was just asking

How did that get started? http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1240&pid=215650

Usually oldsters are old "farts".

We still "rock" but rock, unfortunately has been dead for over a decade. The kids don't rock any more. When I was a kid, I had this notion that rock was gonna live forever. That the music that I liked was never gonna go out of style.

I was wrong.

First of all, there are many people almost my own age who do not like the music I like, and second, the music of today is not the same style. Generally, kids don't like my music and I don't like their music.

So it goes. And there are exceptions of course, individual songs, just like there always were. Back in the day, both my parents and I thought "Bridge over troubled water" and "Bohemian rhapsody" were cool. But I also grew up listening to my parents music - the Tijuana Brass and the soundtrack to "the music man".

12. Write a list of what you are offended by...

And submit it to the purity police.
