Why must we have vulgarity in movies and television shows? According to a recent News story, Christina Axson-Flynn, an aspiring actress, was forced out of the drama program at the University of Utah for refusing to use profanity. They told her to get over her "inhibitions."
It seems we have reached the bottom of the barrel. I don't swear, nor do my associates. To me swearing was something one did as a little kid, to show off to his little friends. But most people quickly grow out of it.
I like detective stories, but I don't watch "NYPD Blue." There is so much vulgarity, and it's not necessary. In the Star Trek movie "Voyage Home," when they go back in time to the 20th century, Capt. Kirk talked about how the people used all these metaphrase. It was in the history books, he said. I sure hope vulgarity becomes history some day.
