I don't really know how long this has been going on, but I've recently seen two supposedly PG-13 movies that had F-bombs dropped in them. The first was X-Men: First Class, in which Wolverine tells the young Professor X and Magneto to "Fuck off." Admittedly it was a really funny scene, but I thought it was pretty strange to be in a PG-13 movie. More recently I watched Transformers: Age of Extinction, which I'm reasonably sure was PG-13, and I'm pretty sure "fuck" was said at least twice in the movie.

Since when was that word allowed in PG-13? I remember back when "shit" was super-taboo, now it's everywhere. Is it just our culture's progressive acceptance of swear words as being relatively harmless? I guess before long George Carlin's "Seven Words you can Never Say on Television" will be said on Saturday morning cartoons and infomercials as casually as any other word. I don't know why I'm suddenly so prudish about this reality, but it is a little bothersome to me. Being as my wife is due to deliver our first baby in a few months, I don't think I want him to be rattling off dirty words like a South Park character by the time he's four years old. Then again, maybe our culture will be accepting of this sort of thing, or at least so apathetic to it that there are no real consequences.

Do any of you guys have thoughts on this?

Okay, if I become as good at this as you, I'll be able to die happy. No joke.

Thanks, I appreciate that. Just enjoy doing what you do. I don't know a single artist who is as good as they want to be, and that's probably the way it should be!
