Dear Coal Miner's Dalter,
Is it really true that "bloody" can be used as a curse equivalent to "fucking"? I mean, is it really equivalent? We're led to believe the Brits think it's on par with "fucking," but I'm not sure I'm convinced. Would a child get suspended from school or beaten at home for saying "That's bloody outrageous"?
If I'd ever said "That's fucking outrageous!" to my mother while growing up, I'd have been in a world of hurt within seconds.
