I have to agree with the comment on this one snopes. You should edit it for the kids. It should say "That's NFBSK'd up!" as kids don't say "SCARED SHITLESS!" any longer.

Not just you. I think it is because it evokes images of oral sex, which is a more specific act and one that is more "dirty" than general sex. Plus, sexual can refer to gender or biology (IE, sexual vs asexual reproduction).

Couldn't that be edited a bit for the sake of children that might come
across your site?
Dear commenter,

By your choice of words, you appear to be implying that under-age visitors may be ejaculating over the webpage. If that was your intention, I think you ought to know that we can do without that sort of filthy innuendo, thank you very much.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

Comment: I have been very disturbed by two articles in the site- Both in
Fauxtography in the "people" section. The image of Michael Jackson in
court with his face undoctored was one, but the more serious one was Brian
Peppers. I would prefer you to add a warning on those two articles that it
is disturbing. I will not sue or anything, but I would very much prefer
you do this.

An image of Michael Jackson's face before he had surgery is disturbing?
What do they mean by undoctored?

And the Brain Peppers one... His photo is available from the Ohio sex offender site. Have they communicated with them to ask them to remove it?

I think they are referring to this page (linky) which is certainly post-surgery (though they do have an image of him as a kid too but I doubt that was what they were referring to.

Reagan was divorced. Trump has divorced twice. No "liberal" president has ever been divorced. But I still think the writer is a Turnip supporter.

I am pretty sure some of them have used drugs too. And I bet some of them have used prostitutes too.

Ah, but none of them have been divorcees or prostitutes. (According to grammarist, "divorcée" is a divorced woman; a divorced man is a "divorcé".) It's OK for a man to get divorced or use a prostitute, but prostitutes and divorced women are wicked.

I bet you are right. Or even just women, women in general. Women that don't know "their place".
