What's up with the PC language police crowd?

[41]
Posted: Oct 27, 2015 12:32 PM
 

Guess what, when I go to a Clemson football game I am highly emotional. I may or may not be buzzed. I care deeply about the team.

So I might say some stupid or illogical things. I will curse. Big ####### deal.

If you really need to shelter your kids that much, don't take them to a football game and hide them from the real world.

Not to mention, language policing is just ridiculous. If I drop an F bomb at a football game it hurts nobody. It is an expression of my emotions.


To each their own

But I remember a day (and I'm not that old) when it was considered rude to use foul language around women and children.

Like I said, to each their own, and I'm not throwing rocks at you for it, but I can see why some folks would rather not have drunken folks screaming obscenities around their children.

it is truly their own. I'm sure this guy is a Clemson fan, and I understand having emotion. I, myself, cuss way too much. But, that is only around people (mostly Army) that I am positive are ok with it. I ABSOLUTELY wouldn't cuss around children, old people, or women I don't know. I am able to filter myself, and that says a lot.


So, yes, to each his own. But, not in public when people can't filter out their surroundings. These people paid for seats, and should retain the right to not have to listen to vulgar language. And, it's not fair to deprive their children of a wholesome good time just because someone is too selfish to filter their language.

I'm always so embarrassed when I go to a restaurant with a group of Army guys and one of them cusses or talks about inappropriate things. I hate to be the guy to have to tell them to watch their language and be aware of their surroundings. But, it seems like (even though they seem uneasy, and embarrassed) nobody else ever says anything.

It's not only rude, it's being very disrepectful to another mans family. I know how to act and carry my self in public, and I have always done so with total respect of everyone around me and within hearing distance of me. Respecting others don't cost nothing, but if someone is using vulgar abusive language in front of my family, that isn't free and it can be costly.

To those who feel the need to add unnecessary and ignorant verbiage to cheers, the alma mater, etc. please be aware that your "freedom to express" yourself ends where my, and my child's ears, begin. Take your attitude to Dabo and watch the replay of the halftime "chat" he had with the young men in Miami. How long would it last on the field with this team?

That's the most idiotic, immature attitude I have ever heard. If you can't control what you say when there are little kids around, you have a serious problem. Why should kids have to miss out on Clemson football because you want to be a moron?

The kids would only be missing the game because you are an overly protective parent who likes to shelter your child.

Look, don't misunderstand me. I am not going to be talking casually with heavy cursing but I will certainly use those words in emotional situations. If we punt on 4th and 1 on the 40 I will probably curse. If we score or have a big play I might let out a F yeah. I might call one of the opposing players a P#### if he gets blown up by a Gallman stiff-arm, etc.

Sheltering my child. Haha. Do you think in the real world you can just say whatever you want? Talk like that at any respectable job and see how fast you get shown the door. Talk like that in front of your bosses kids and see how fast you get put in your place. Then I would love for you to tell him not to shelter his kid. You are a special kind of stupid.

Its not sheltering kids, it is not wanting them around foul language. I am no Saint by any stretch, and in my career I have both used and been exposed to all manner of foul language. I also frankly have been around plenty of parents who will openly use the F Bomb in front of their children. I do not for a second think it is due to any choice to make them more exposed to the world, or whatever, its that they don't know better. I am all for getting hyped, and absolutely feel as passionate as anyone when Clemson plays football. I have cheered, roared, or screamed in agony at a busted play. Might even sulk for a week or so after a loss. But I don't curse around my wife, people children, or even generally outside my work. Doing it at work hardly excuses it, but nothing quite gets the attention of a young Marine so much as "WTF did you think you were doing" So it does get said. Not kicking rocks at you, but I will hope in time you reconsider your stance in this matter.

not sure about now, but it used to say on the back of the ticket you can be removed from the game for too much profanity. Best way to get you answer is to call your mom and ask her is she approves of it and would she have wanted you around it when you were young?

How sheltered a life are you giving your kids? Will you ever take them to an NFL game? How about a hockey game? Will you ever take them out in a big city? Will you take them to a not so family friendly beach? Will you control what friends they talk to in school? Will you monitor their internet usage?

Look some people think educating your kids involves exposing them to different experiences/people/knowledge/ideas. Others think educating their kids is forcing them to live and act in the way that the parent wants. I tend to prefer the former and I think it worked out very well for me.

A drunken moron like you spitting out f bombs every play that goes wrong because most people are decent and have respect for young kids. When she hears an occasional cuss words its no big deal. When she sees people like you, its a teaching moment for her on what not to act like. The fact that you think I'm sheltering my kid because I don't put up with idiots like you is hilarious. You really can't tell the difference between the two. How can you not see this? My daughter is exposed to plenty of things that will help he grow and mature, but having a yelling drunken fool behind us at a football game is NOT one of them. Moron.

The PC crowd made it possible for you to enjoy Tiger football long before you knew what made the experience so unique in the first place. I teach college students and while there a few who act they are above the rules of polite, indeed decent behavior, I would suggest you learn some respect for those with children, as well as those who earned it simply by being more mature and a whole lot less self absorbed! There is such a thing as recognizing and respecting those who have earned their place by being considerable of others. Why open your cursing mouth and be seen as rude as opposed to keeping your language and attitude to a civil tone and thus be seen as having brought up with some common sense!

If you want to shelter your children from the real world, go to church.

There is no reason I should have to filter my behavior (outside of illegal activity) to comply with your personal decision on how to raise your kids.

I personally am against filtering language/thought/expression and believe this country would be a much better place if weren't quieted by this constant notion of political correctness.

I'm passionate about Clemson football too. You got flak for saying it was one of the top 3 most important things in your life right now, but I would totally echo that statement. I'm right there with you.

I have been to every home game this year. You better believe I was swearing throughout the ND game, especially in the 4th quarter. But I was by far the youngest person in my area, and I'm only 25.

At the GT game, I also swore loudly during a busted play. Well, the mother sitting in front of me turned around and politely asked that I not cuss in front of her 4 year old. I obliged and it didn't hurt me one bit.

What was I supposed to do, tell her to go #### herself?

Context with words is crucial. I am not telling you or your kids/wife/etc. to F themselves. I am using these words abstractly or as adjectives/adverbs to describe the football game. I am offending nobody except those who are offended by free expression.

So, you are ok with teaching a 6 year old to say the F-word when things don't go his way. As long as he uses it abstractly or as an adjective/adverb? And only allowed if he is expressing his emotions? You may be 25 and graduated with honors, but because you are read and write does not mean your maturity level is not on a 7th grade level.

to do whatever you want. Some things or right and some things are wrong. You cannot define morality yourself, it just is.

Don't believe me? Let me walk up to you and slap you in the face then. When you are offended I will tell you that slapping you in the face is not "wrong" but a free expression in my reality and you must accept it. Same thing. Harsh language is inappropriate in certain situations. In front of children is one of them.

By the way, there is nothing wrong with sheltering children from certain situations. I taught mine not to touch the hot stove too because it hurts. I didn't wait for them to do it and then say yes you just used your freedom to discover pain in life. Drop an F bomb in from of the right person (or wrong as the case may be) can be just as painful.

Violence is almost certainly morally wrong. Foul language is much more of a gray area and probably isn't morally wrong.

If you're a student (because as I understand it, that's who is doing this), what you're saying right now to us on this message board is that you're a self-entitled child that, at 18+ years old and a student at one of the finest public universities in the country, is incapable of controlling his emotions so much so that, even though people have told you that they find it rude and embarrassing and that they don't want their children to hear it...and even though it adds zero to the spirit of that cheer...you still feel like you are right to scream obscenities in a public place?

Is that about right?

At the very least, yelling obscenities in that situation is a clear indication of the level of respect you have for those around you...which is to say, very little. Disappointing. I don't want Clemson to have to teach their students how to be adults. It's just sad to see that they don't seem to be figuring it out on their own.

I have never been confronted about this issue because I have mostly watched games in the student section (where people understand that words such as these are meaningless and hurt nobody).

But to answer your first question, yes when watching a Clemson game it is hard for me to handle my emotions. There are few things in life that I put as much emotion into as watching my alma mater play football.

enlightened students, according to you) the word is meaningless, but to thousands of people around you it is considered rude, crass and inappropriate, why are you so weak-minded that you cannot stop yourself from saying it? You just said that the evolved students know the word means nothing. It's not intimidating to the opponents...you said you consider it harmless. Yet, like a child, you can't control yourself?

I'm not sure you realize how ridiculous you sound, both now and probably on Saturdays. You sound like a self-entitled child. I certainly can't stop you if I wanted, and I guess I'm fortunate in that I sit on the other side of the stadium. But don't doubt that you're representing you, the Clemson students and the Clemson family poorly. You're choosing to do so.

How many times has someone pulled up the picture of all the South Carolina fans flipping the bird at Clemson players after scoring a touch down so that we can mock their lack of class? How often do we go on and on about Maryland thug fans throwing out the F-bomb? There's something to being "better than that." But it takes...are you ready?...a very slight level of self-control.

Handling emotions is part of the whole "being a mature adult" thing. Hang around until you get them under control before venturing out into the real world. Loss of control out there leads to real consequences, not just a missed football game.

Putting others first takes a man. Doing what feels right is what a child does. Doing what is right for others is what real adults do.

At ND we had some college guys buy the seats behind us. They were dropping Fbombs left and right. I and the others turned and politely asked they stop because of our young kids. They politely apologized and ended up being very friendly and even played with our kids.

Not sure how old you are in age, but I am certain you are years behind these teens in your maturity. Grow up. Get a job. Move out of your mother's basement and be a man.

Not at all. But this is a situation where expecting clean language is absurd. You are attending a football game. It is a violent sport driven by emotion. Anyone who has ever played the game can attest to the fact that foul language is an integral part of the game.

Highly emotional? Saying you will say stupid and illogical things because you care deeply about the team and may or may not be buzzed? Yes, that is stupid and illogical! Our traditions are what makes Clemson great. We are a family oriented program from the locker room to the tailgate spots. I do not shelter my kids, but I do teach them right from wrong. And being highly emotional to the point that you cuss in front of young children (and couldn't care less about it) because an 18 year old kid dropped a ball is wrong. You, sir, are the man I point out to my 4 boys and say, "don't act like that guy. You know how to act, and that guy up there is an example of how not to act."

It's mainly reactionary. This is how I talk when I watch a game on TV and it's how I talk when I watch a game in DV.

Have you ever played sports? Did you ever curse while playing? A serious fan watching experience is, emotionally, very similar to playing a competitive sport. Adrenaline level runs high and words flow easily.

When I was at Clemson, the cadence count cheer...

[2]
Posted: Oct 27, 2015 4:46 PM
 

included the phrase "fight #### it fight". I don't remember anyone especially concerned about hurting our culture, our reputation, or God forbid what it would do to the children. Of course back then there wasn't an internet to discuss ... uh, I mean rant about these things so I guess no one knew if anyone was offended or even cared. It was just the way it was when I was at Clemson. We were just kids passionate about our team and that was the way we said the cheer. I said #### loud and proud as part of that cheer, but I tended not to use the world #### in general conversation. That's because my mom taught me better, but believe me, I didn't learn that word from a cheer. It wasn't just the students. Everyone in the stands said the cheer the same way. Now fast forward 34 years and no one says #### in the cadence count anymore. I guess we live in a different world where we have to grow up faster, are expected not to use language that might offend anyone in earshot, and above all else make sure no one around you perceives you as being different than them. Don't rush the field, act like you have been there before, don't say this, don't say that, etc, etc. We all hear these things preached to us. There is something to be said for just allowing 18- 24 year old kids to just be kids and enjoy themselves on a few Saturdays in the fall each year. Afterall, we can probably all agree that being a student at Clemson will probably be some of the best years of their lives. Most will spend the rest of their lives in a cubicle. I kind of expect to hear bad language when I am in a crowd of 18 to 24 year olds who have had a few drinks in them. Perhaps it is the word f*ck some find more offensive than say sh*t or damn? I don't know of any lives that have been ruined by using the word f*ck. Believe me, everytime I hear the whohoo I want to scream f*ck too so maybe it is a form of protest? How dare my school fight song get hijacked that way! (sarcasm) I am not running around the internet trying to suppress the whohoo. I just refuse to participate in it. My first response is not be to try to control those saying it, but figure out what I could change to either avoid or limit my exposure; or learn to live with it. Unfortunately it seems the latter is the world I have to live in with the whohoo. If I was concerned about my children repeating the whohoo, then I would certainly spend time with them so they know it is not acceptable under any circumstance. Perhaps seating somewhere not so close to the students would be the best solution as I have been to three games this year and have yet to hear fu*k except in my own mind after the whohoo. Just my two cents so whohoo away as it is not your responsibility to control everyone else.


There is so much wrong with your post...

Nevertheless, both are curse words and many are going off on the use of curse words. I just thought it was important to note using curse words in cheers is nothing new and it didn't seem to be a problem in the past. If people are being honest though, as you are now pointing out, it's not the fact that they cussed. The issue is the cuss word used. As you so eloquently point out, F*ck is worse than D*mn in your opinion. I guess it is true that one if more socially acceptable than the other. Evidently you have no sense of humor as I was using the futility of protesting against the whohoo to illustrate the fact that you cannot control other people use of language. I think most people, who were raised right, do not yell f*ck in public, but when you are in a crowd of your peers, perhaps have had a few drinks, and people around you are yelling f*ck things happen. I am not condoning it I am just saying whining about it on the internet most likely will not accomplish anything but make you feel better about yourself, but doesn't do anything to create a solution. Do I think Clemson students who participated are bad people? No I don't. Do I condone it? No. Do I truthfully think anyone has been harmed? No. Do I think I have it within my power to change things by ranting on a fan forum? No.

There may be a pretty easy way to get a gut check for feedback on your behavior and language - just ask your mother what her opinion is. If she says it's fine and she would encourage you to use the same language around her grandchildren (if she has any), that may be a starting point for a root cause analysis of the problem.

PC language police have no place in our country, and "being PC" is destructive to society.

That being said, swearing in the stands in Death Valley is never cool. I get being all riled up and emotional about Clemson Football too sometimes. I even swear at my TV, but never in the stands. Let's leave swearing in the stands to South Carolina fans. Learn to control your emotions.

Personally, if you were dropping F'Bombs around my kids and refused to stop I'd either A) have security to escort you out of the stadium B) beat you up

Be smart, either way you're not going to make it through the game swearing.

There is no way this girl grew up around Clemson, ever went to a Clemson game as a child, has any family that ever attended Clemson. This is the exact opposite character we have embodied at Clemson since I was little.

There is a reason we consistently have the best gameday experience in all of college football... And it has a lot to do with being welcoming, friendly, and providing a FAMILY friendly environment. It ain't about how "emotional" you get or how drunk you get or even how much you care. I can tell you right now that NO ONE will miss this girl if she never comes to another Clemson game in her life!


I think this is should be a teaching opportunity for our admissions dept and the BOD.

Well...Clemson promotes their events to be family friendly. Of course people will cuss at games and saying a cuss word every now and then is not a big problem but if you are cussing every other word around kids then it just looks bad. I don't know any parents that would agree that is acceptable. Its not sheltering you kids but I wouldn't want my son to believe it is okay to cuss every time they watch a football game.

I know they don't teach history in school these days but, have you ever heard of George Washington? In addition to being known as a great leader and president, he also knew a lot about proper decorum.

He wrote "Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior In Company and Conversation" when he was about fifteen. The very first rule is one you should really should learn:

"Every action done in company, ought to be with some sign of respect, to those that are present."

And your argument about the absurdity of language policing sits on a very slippery slope. Watch how I extend your logic to include public sex..

"Not to mention, policing acts of public intercourse is just ridiculous. If my wife and I get a bit buzzed before football game and decide to do the dirty on Bowman Field it hurts nobody. It is an expression of our emotions."

See what I did there? Point being, there's a line somewhere and most would agree that every time you drop an F-bomb within hearing distance of my little one you've crossed it.

Hmmmmmm it's almost as if there is a difference between sexual behavior and language!

Think about it this way. How would you feel if a guy in front of you is yelling the F word? How about if a gay couple in front of you at the game is kissing? How about if a gay couple is having sex in front of you?

Note: whether they are gay or hetero doesn't matter but I notice a strong protestant church ethos from a lot of you. So it probably matters to you.

Where did sexual preference become part of common decency in how you act in public, around families and children. I would assume any moral person regardless of what their sexual preference would not have sex in the stadium in front of 85,000. In your progressive attitude you can't stay on topic of bad behavior without jumping to another, different situation, to take the heat off of your cavalier attitude toward society as a whole.

Two guys kissing at a game in front of me and my family? Totally cool with that, provided it doesn't cross into the realm of the obscene. Same standard I'd set for a heterosexual couple. I'll even offer to conduct a ceremony for them if they ever want to charter my boat. That's just me speaking, though. I appreciate not everyone on this board agrees.

The other two examples you offer... that's on the far side of the aforementioned line of societal norms. And judging from the responses this post has gotten, I'd say I'm in the majority on that one.

This has nothing to do with a Protestant ethic. This has everything to do with a standard of behavior that you're willing to toss aside to satiate some Rand-ian libertarian fantasy.


Re: Since you asked...

You might be the majority on this board, that's true. Nationally? Not at all. Go into a board room or professional meeting in NYC, you might hear some language you don't like. Same with Chicago/LA/Houston/etc. Foul language is casually used both at work, in personal situations, among friends, and in many public situations. Is it always appropriate? No probably not. Is a football game one of these sanctioned safe spaces? Absolutely not.

"Foul language is casually used both at work, in personal situations, among friends, and in many public situations."

compare you list to my list: Schools, playgrounds, theaters, and Clemson football games.



Guess what the major difference in these two lists is....

Thats right, your list of where its more appropriate to use foul language describes places that have few if any children. In my list you will find more children and I would hope you would agree that it is not appropriate to use the same language.



*reading through this thread it seems like you are arguing for a spontaneous reaction while others are arguing the cadence F-ing count. If you are still arguing for a spontainious outbreak of "emotion" I would hope you would have the decency to curtail your language if asked by anyone within earshot of your said outbreak of emotion. On the other hand, if you are arguing for the "right", or whatever you want your point to be, to scream in unison the F word at a Clemson game, you are a complete loser with an agenda and I hope you save this so you can look back and see what a moron you were.

I can't deny that you're right in one respect: foul language is pretty common in the situations you mentioned. Probably more so than it should be. It never ceases to amaze me what so-called professionals will do and say behind closed doors.

BUT I disagree with your assessment that a football game - especially a CLEMSON football game - is an appropriate place for that kind of behavior. Look around you the next time you're in the stands and take note of just how many children are within shouting distance. Those brains are little sponges. How many of our dedicated fans are old enough to be your grandparents? Would you be willing to use that language in front of your grandmother? It's called the Clemson family for a reason.


Exactly.

If your boss who normally cusses, brings his/ her child to work, do you think they would still cuss in front of their child? Furthermore, do you think your boss would approve of you cussing around his/her little one? If they had a problem would you tell them to "take their kid to church if you want to protect them"?

words to be offended by. Kids would be much better off not being taught to arbitrarily moralize certain sounds. With that said... you are NEVER going to convince anyone of that. Something THAT ingrained in a society doesn't change for a LONG time. So... if you say all those things and some former Marine dad tells you to shut up then you are going to have to deal with the consequences.

Screaming a word that makes people very uncomfortable is just like shoving someone. There is no moral difference between a verbal assault and a physical assault. As long as you can handle the repercussions and don't cry if someone comes after you, then I support your attitude. But I also support a right of a parent to protect their kids from perceived threats. Even if misguided, I can't blame a parent for coming after you.

I cuss like a sailor, but I have respect for others who probably don't want to hear it. Being considerate for those who are different than you, I think, is a healthy policy.

but if there are young children around (including my own) I try really hard to keep my language PG. There is no reason to be classless about it. As an adult I should be able to exercise some self-control.

It's ironic that you call this "PC language police" since "PC" is a term that people typically use negatively to pooh-pooh changes in the (un)acceptability of contemporary language. In contrast, 50 years ago if you uttered so much as a single curse word in front of a woman or child, every gentleman around you would stop what they were doing to call you to the carpet. So in a way, the objection to cursing in front of children is about as un-PC as you can get.
