The word that I keep seeing that would seem to be more of a problem (to me anyway) is 'freeking' which is being used as a euphemism for a word that begins with 'f' and means to copulate.
Of course, as the old joke goes: what's a four letter word that ends in 'k' and means intercourse? The answer is: talk.
It's mostly the manner in which it's been used lately.
