Use the f-word on air and you lose your job, use racial slurs on air and you just get suspended for a week. What the fuck? Christ, people say "shit" on Irish radio in the middle of the day and no one blinks an eye, and while there'd probably be the odd disgruntled complaint if someone said "fuck", there is no way on earth that anyone would even be suspended for a day for it, let alone indefinitely. How the hell did the odd swear word become worse than blatant racism?

Or not so carefully phrased racism, in the case of Mad Mick McDowell (or anyone who phones in those vile Adrian Kennedy et al phone shows). Which should please the likes of Ryan Tubridy, because we know he hates "political correctness". The big gobshite.

It's so weird to watch old movies. In The Paper, they literally honked out the word "bitch" in "son of a bitch," yet the word "pickaninny" was used freely. In fact, it was even used in the context of one reporter relating a "funny" anecdote to several others.

Personally, I'd much rather my hypothetical children use the f-word than the n-word. Profanity is one thing; hate is quite another.

Because our fucking country is totally fucked up, that's why. We need to fucking return to the fucking good old days, where we could fucking hang people who weren't white and firebomb their fucking churches, but married tv couples had to sleep in twin beds and couldn't say pregnant. Because you know how you get pregnant? by fucking! And that's sex! which is fucking worse than fucking racism and acts of fucking domestic terrorism, for fuck's sake.

And, no, I'm not fucking upset with my stupid fucking government one fucking bit. Nope.
