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. Grant Barrett gbarrett[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
