Since I am from your mothers generation, please consider this — the ‘f’ word implies rape and non-consentual sex. It’s part of your culture and generation, you grew up with it. It was not a part of mine. Yes, it is offensive to a great number of us. I can avoid TV shows, movies and people that use the ‘f’ word. I don’t use words that offend young people when I am around them. It’s called respect.
