Jeremy Kayes believes that profanity is the capsicum of language! It’s not appropriate for every meal, but could you imagine food without spice?

When we combine our views of sex and each other, we discover words like these. How afflicted are we with our sexuality that we have an insult for someone that enjoys it?
So whey do we use these slurs? Because they are weapons. Weapons are tools to do harm. We reach for them when we feel weak and scared.
