As literate, creative people we should be able to say **** in all sorts of interesting ways.
Romance and drama would be pretty boring if there was only one word for ****.
Granted, **** is a multi-function, multipurpose Swiss Army Knife of words. It can, depending on usage, be a noun, verb, adjective and even an adverb. The problem with **** is that it gets overused and loses its potency. There is definitely a time and a place for ****. We shouldn't dilute it or wear it out with overuse.
Words like **** are supposed to have sharp edges. It's supposed to make you blink, raise and eyebrow or wrinkle your nose. The reason it doesn't anymore is that it has been overused to the point where it's shape edges are dulled. It is a word that is actually improved by its rarity. Seeing **** in a sentence should elicit a reaction other than -meh- or you are using it wrong.
If you are really good at it, you can say **** and no one will even notice at all.
The craft of writing isn't about the power of ****, it's about the power of the other words and ideas in that sentence.
