When did it become okay to casually print the words fuck and fucking in a widely circulated daily newspaper meant for transit readers?
In the Metro paper this morning, there was an article about Kevin Smith’s new book and they quoted him using the words above. The print edition has both words while the online version seems to show a little more decorum and only uses fucking.
While I don’t particularly have a concern with those words being bandied about in conversation among adults, isn't it inappropriate to use them so casually in print?
I’ve written to the editor but he’ll probably be too fucking busy to respond.
