Exploring Gender Mysteries – “Fuck” is a Famous Word.

The famous “F” word expresses so much emotion! It is probably the most “feeling” word that anyone could use… or should I say: “any man can use”. Are women free to use the word “fuck” without being judged? Are men who “don’t” use the word “fuck”, fucked because they are not man enough? When all words “fail us” we know “fuck” will be our verbal salvation.
In 1937 Amelia Earhart asked: “Where the fuck are we?” We might be asking the same question about the acceptability of the word “fuck” in 2012. My guest is Christian, a young man who introduced this topic to me for discussion. He is a person of many skills and deep insight.

Follow-up summary of the show:
This show demonstrates the unconsciousness of gender. “Fuck” is thought of as a “man’s” word because it is so much a part of male culture that has the “right” to be strong and outrageous. Can women use “fuck” as freely without being judged? Our guest learns that being non-judgmental is a challenge men and women face so they don’t “fuck-up” the relations they share.
Listen and learn!
