F-Words in the Classroom
I was an early consumer and user of the original F-word. There were two age tiers in the close-knit neighborhood where I grew up; as part of the younger one, I got an early education in the nittier and grittier ways of the world and the various words used to describe them. With time and parenthood, my love of swearing has faded. I’m now much more interested in the new F-words. They are those that seem to be treated as anathemas in the world of higher education: fun, fear and faculty.
