So I guess your argument is that two wrongs make a right. Who's fault is it that kids know and use this language. I didn't when I was ten. What happened to protecting our childrens innocence.

In response to JimfromFlorida's comment:
Classless ?? They pulled the shirt off after the HR he did not pull it off. So it was not meant to be seen on the field.
By extrapolation that would mean EVERY shirt that we see out and about with letters block red or rearranged etc... Is classless. What the frack. is classless, NYY suks is classless. Etc...
any kid over 10 in today's society knows what the word is and means. Also as the op stated most never caught the shirts writing
Love the Red Sox and enjoy the ride every year.
We as adults have should protect our children so that they can be children. Kids grow up way to fast, they are exposed to things that we never had to deal with.
That's what happens when we start down the slippery slope.
I agree that it is a slippery slope. But, 67, you really didn't know swear words when you were ten? That is fascinating.
No, adults were careful not to use them around kids way back when I was a kid! I'm going on 60 so life was very different back then.
We didn't hear it on tv, there were only 3 channels back then LOL! Music was far more tame, no internet, my first radio was AM only, no FM.
We didn't hear it at home, in school, tv, music etc. It was a much more gentle time. I never saw a ball player swear on tv, that was unheard of. They were clean cut, no tats, and looked wholesome. How they behaved behind closed doors may have been a different matter.
I could watch tv with my parents without them having to worry about smut and violence.
A few years later all that started to change but when I was a kid a had the great privilage of living an innocent life.
When my son was about 4 we were at a neighbors party. They were swearing so I asked them to be careful in front of my son. They laughed and told me the kids hear it all the time. Not in my house, around my family or my friends.
Some of us are grandparents now and we still don't swear around our kids. My sons don't swear around me or their dad. Do they swear when they are not around me, I don't know. I know for certain that my son won't swear around his daughter.
