      Love this .... I don’t scream or run but my go to way to let those I love know I’m mad as hell Is by quietly and intently looking into their eyes and letting them know how I fucking feel... using fuck in every way possible.

        This article reminded me of George Carlin’s riff on shit as a part of speech. After we heard that, my husband and I filled a yellow legal pad with every syntactical use of shit we could think of. Now are there articles on frickin as a derivative of fucking? And what’s the etiology?

      Really good shit.

      I have such a distinct childhood memory of asking my mom what ‘fuck’ meant at the bus stop, I think I was around 8 years old. She told me it was another word for ‘sex’ and I said ‘ok, thanks’ and preceded to spent the entire bus ride replacing ‘sex’ in my head in every context I had heard ‘fuck’ before. Go sex yourself, shut your sexing mouth, sex you, what the sex.. (I had seen a lot of r-rated movies). I think it one of the first times I remember resolving to the conclusion that some things just might not make much sense and I hadn’t thought about that conundrum again until this article.

        This is a fantastic memory! How disappointing is it that the classification remains unsettled? I love the proposal of "frigatives" as a whole new category.

        That’s a great conclusion, profound even, for an 8 year old! For indeed, a lot of things don’t make any fucking sense!

      Every example of fuck used in a sentence sounds fucking good to me.!

      Quant resembles an evil looking Paul McCartney. Aside from that, I found this article fucking laborious. However, one of Bopp’s sentences rang true for me - ha!
