sociology and swearing

Someone just said "My coworker’s five year old daughter asked her why fuck was a bad word and the five year old connected it as fuck -> sex -> babies -> good.”

Prof: “Therefore, the loop continues and fuck is good."

I love children.  And sociology.

We are only socialized into thinking fuck is bad.  Because really, it’s just another word.
