Someone needs to wash the New York Times’s mouth out with soap.
A few days ago, it said the F-word. We at the Herald expressed a communal, synchronized gasp of disgust when we saw it happen, right there, all up in our face on the 86th page of the Times’ style magazine. The absolute gall.
For our part, we would never. We would never use the F-word—a word that literally makes me shudder to even see written out—in a front-page story, no less.
“With Wasilewski at the Church Street South housing projects, I see this firsthand when one officer looks a teenage suspect in the eyes and complains to the others officers at the scene, “I stop this fucking kid every fucking time!”
We would obviously never use it in a Bullblog headline.
“Stop fat shaming Kim Kardashian; she’s fucking pregnant”
And it goes without saying that the Bullblog’s own Lara Sokoloff , TC ’16, would never:
”48 hours later, the fucking elevator still is not fixed.”
”The reasoning behind Paint Parties must be that someone at some point had a good fucking time at one and decided to make them a ‘thing.’”
”Regardless, even if I didn’t know it was spring, my instagram certainly fucking knows it’s spring.”
”Here are the top two ways to get the fuck out”
But now the floodgates have opened. The Times has buckled, and the Herald is the next logical domino to fall. Turn on your Chrome parental controls because stuff’s about to get flipped up.
