Seriously, the "F" word is offensive in almost any context...

I don't agree, and I'm sure my disagreement is the result of different

socialization, possibly due to age or peer group. "What the fuck" and

"fuck me" (as in "I can't believe how I just is just got screwed") are

utilitarian and hardly show up on my sensitivity meter. Jesse's book

has several uses of fuck that are fairly generic, to me, at least.
