Where’s the respect for others with vulgar fashion brands?

I greatly respect parents who teach their kids the proper use of the English language and to “keep it clean.” Profanity may be legal, and we hear plenty of it on the streets, in the movies and elsewhere.

We know that profanity is also insulting, degrading and disgusting to many. So, why would anyone adopt the “f-word” as their fashion brand and proudly parade that stink-bomb through society with total disregard for those who will be adversely affected? Where’s the respect and consideration for others?

Some will make their money, but I ain’t buying it.
