I don't want to grow up!

Lake Superior State University has taken it upon itself to suggest that certain words be banished from the English language. Have they heard of Free Speech? This makes me mad as hell. But, I must admit, it has nothing to do with Free Speech.  I just learned one of the banned words: Metrosexual.  Thanks to my male counterpart journaler Robby

I, being the lame childless grown-up that I am, tend to be extremely behind on all things bling-bling (another banned word).  By the time a fashion trend, new music, or lingo makes it my way, it's lost it's luster.  This is just another reminder that I have indeed grown-up.  Damn! When did this happen and why do the young have to continuously slap it in my face?  I refuse to grow up! I really am a Toys-R-US kid. I am!

Robbie's a cool dude indeed! And you're a cool dudette! :-) And you're absolutely right. Banning words is total bullsh@t. But that's jsut my opinion. LOL!

P.S. I'm glad you got the graphic up and running! Coolness!

People who want to ban words . . . simply have way too much damn time on their hands . . . . Smile Sis

Well LaDiDah to them, LOL (one of the banned "words")
Good luck, as if they have much influence. And I've
never heard of THEM, so blah! LMAO.
They'll soon be replaced with other words, so those will
fade into history, or if lucky, end up in a dictionary.

Some people just have too much time on their hands to worry about stupid crap.

Want to ban words.

I've never heard of anything so ridiculous. Those are all fad words that will have their place in the sun and later fade. What's wrong with metrosexual anyway? I like it!
