Ever notice how certain people who are against "hate speech" use hateful language? Or what about music lyrics using profanities and talking about killing and doing harm to women and others, or just being hateful? They say they have their "First Amendment rights" and/or an artistic license. Well, I would like to respond to that. I say, NO! No, you do not have a First Amendment right to use hateful, derogatory speech, or profanity! And it doesn't matter who you are or if it's music or art or whatever!
Now that I have said that, a person will say what they want to even if it is bad and hateful, but that is NOT a right! It is not something protected under the First Amendment! Know your history before you start talking about the Constitution and The Bill of Rights. The First Amendment was never intended for such language! What about "hate speech" or racial slurs? Are they protected under the First Amendment? Of course not! Well, speech or music using dirty or filthy words shouldn't be either!
In fact, I say there should be a law against such language. You can't smoke in any public place, not even outside if you are close to the entrance. Pretty much the only place where you have a right to smoke is in your own house or another smoker's house. Why should profanity be any different?
Middleboro, Massachusetts, passed a law in 2012, by a 183 - 50 margin, against using profanity in any public place. If caught, you have to pay a $20 fine. And now Brighton, Michigan, has cracked down on "swearing". Colin Anderson, 19, was ticketed for using profanity this past May. He went to court to fight the charge but in the end had to pay a $200 fine. Ouch! That's the price you pay for being a "potty" mouth. Russia has banned all profanity in music, movies, and other arts and media. Imagine a world without any profanity, well, at least your world. You know... that doesn't sound too bad! Do we really need such language anyway? %#*@#!!... no.
