Yes, stores in that mall probably sell Speedos and cigarettes, but I wouldn't want people using those in the mall either.  Bottom line: some people don't want rude words in their faces.

Private property... move along.

Also, I love that, in memory of their dear mother, they're wearing a hat with a rude word on it.  That's real... stupid.  Will they wear those to the funeral?  Why not?  Oh, they want the funeral to be quiet dignified?  Just like the mall used to be?

People wearing hats and shirts with rude words on it destroys something - it destroys the VALUE known as "mall where I can shop in peace with my family".  A value, boys and girls, is something we need to live or be happy.  People who destroy values are what we call evil.  The fact that these folks are too foolish to know that is irrelevant.

On the one hand, people are free to wear what they want, even if it makes them look like vulgar guttersnipes.

On the other hand, you're in a place of business, You're expected to have some sense of respectability.

These people are trying to bring in emotion and pity into it. Your mother died. That sucks. Make a sign and put it in your yard (until the HOA cites violations).

Don't be an entitled biatch because the rest of the world won't let you mourn (metaphoricalily) loudly and publically.

COMPLETE STATEMENT FROM KING OF PRUSSIA MALL
"King of Prussia Mall would first like to express its condolences to the young women regarding the loss of their mother. King of Prussia Mall is a proud supporter of breast cancer awareness and other important causes however, the mall is first and foremost a family destination. Certain words and images, whether obvious or suggested, spoken or written on clothing, are considered profane and can offend many people. In keeping with the mall's Code of Conduct, security approached the women who were first asked respectfully to remove their caps and when they refused, were asked to leave. King of Prussia Mall is dedicated to providing a family-friendly atmosphere for all our shoppers and such profanity is not tolerated."
-Robert Hart, Mall Manager


Oh Please. The word looks like FUAK. Also stores in the mall have items for sale with uncensored words all over them but that's no problem for the mall manager. Pay a visit to the Spencer's and the Urban Outfitters stores in that mall. Why hasn't he asked them to leave? Oh right, because he makes money from them. Fark road trip.

As long as there's clothes covering the naughty parts you won't run into trouble.

Carn: The point being, our society is awash in sex, violence, and profanity. You can't censor whatever you particularly feel is offensive. I'm offended by Justin Bieber and muzak, but I hear those in the mall all the time. Help help I'm being oppressed.

Except a private business does have the right to censor whatever they feel is offensive.


That's fine.  It's still stupid.  If a covered weiner isn't a weiner than a f*ck isn't the real thing either.  I think this can all be summed up with "If it offends you, you could trying minding your own f*cking business."

My point was that I consider people who get squeamish over "profanity" childish.

The rest of what you said is irrelevant to me.


In the company of my old 'pack' we tend to use phrases that would make a mercenary blink
None of us are squeamish, I assure you. But there is a time and place for that. And constantly using a barrage of the same off-color words shows a lack of verbal skills as well as a failure to use a decent vocabulary range. Come on, we can all do better than that.
There is nothing childish about not wanting to be in a conversation where the other party cannot form a sentence without resorting to profanity.

Because a hot famous chick (Angelina Jolie) just told us all she had her tits removed because of breast cancer, so anything not 100% sympathetic towards cancer patients/families is the worst occurrence in the history of the world.

Because it is commonly used and viewed as a derisive term and insult by people everywhere (including atheists).  If some stranger walked up to you and said "F**k you", I'm sure your first reaction would not be, "Well, thank you very much sir!  I am sexually enlightened and have no religious hang-ups, so I can see nothing but positives in your statement."

This isn't a freedom of speech issue, it's private property (freedom of speech applies to public settings), it only matters what the property owners find offensive.

They don't.  They have authority over their own private property.  The first amendment does not apply on private property.  See for instance: Fark.com.

Try posting the word fark here.  fark fark fark fark fark.  <--- OH THE OUTRAGE THAT IS NOT WHAT I TYPED!!!

And if you go around the filter and put crap they don't want on this site, you'll get tossed just like in that mall.  You'll get over it.

If your fragile mind is offended by the mere mention of a 'rude word' as you call it (seriously, you sound like you're a six-year-old using terms like that), then maybe you shouldn't go outside into the big scary world at all. The mall is supposed to be 'quiet and dignified?' Are you kidding? What world do you live in where the mall needs to be cleansed of every unsavory thought or image to shop there? The funny thing is that it wasn't even a bad word. Your mind has to fill in the blanks, meaning you were the one who thought of the bad word.

That being said, the mall has every right to show these people the door. They have chosen the patronage of prudes and their children over people who were just trying to have a sense of humor about an awful disease. Hopefully, it will reflect negatively in their sales numbers but I doubt it will.
