more language fussery. [anti-christian talk]
i have -100 problem with using swears all the time, including christiany swears because whatever (also a sense of entitlement from having been fucked up by being raised baptist).
hell, i love saying “jesus christ on a stick” (and my old catholic coworker got a, ah, kick out of it too). goddamn, jesus fuck, christing hell — all good.
but maybe i don’t feel so good saying “thank god” or “thank heavens” save, perhaps, in a sarcastic sense.
and i have always been opposed to “thank goodness” in its literal meaning because, ugh, good/evil paradigms
so mostly i’ve used “thank fuck” (especially good where extreme emotions are involved)
but like, hm. one, can’t always say that (hello again, wtf problems; ahahaha should my solution be “thank quoi”?)
and two, what am i thanking. cursing? cool. sex? whoa no opposite of cool.
i will very very like continue using thank fuck, because interjections. but what would be a more ~intentional~ phrase? (i add squigglies bc sometimes i get irritated by all the overemphasis on intentionality / mindfulness, because yo dissociation)
right now i’m at “thank the ‘verse” which is a shitty firefly reference but is short and, yeah ok, “thank you universe for working like this” is good for me. kinda like thanking my computer, that sorta non-sentient-this-was-kinda-your-job-but-hey-actually-thank-you deal.
what do you all say, or what would you ideally say if you could magic your brain words?
