So I got a detention today.
Which is kinda dumb because I’m (mostly) a model student, you know? And get this - Heres what Im in for: I said…*whispers* a swear word in class. 60 minutes of punishment for the phrase: “That’s really shitty.”
So this is how it went down: I’m sitting in math class last hour before break and my teacher hands me a little slip saying that i gotta go see the vice principal. And im thinking, “damn, i thought she forgot about that.” The horrible cuss word was uttered a few days beforehand and, well, i figured she didnt even remember. I walk down there (in my full-body cat kigurumi btw) and mrs. Whatever isnt there. So i mull around and steal a candy cane off the offices mini fake tree (Im already in trouble anyways so gotta go big or go home) until finally, i talk to the desk lady who calls the vice principal down. We walk into the room and start to have a chat about how our high school doesnt tolerate swears bluh bluh etc and that i should find alternatives to cussing. Thats where this picture comes in. This lady just fucking WHIPS this goddamn list out of nowhere and shows it to me in a completely serious manner. “Heres some examples of words you can use when you want to swear.” W H A T.
And here she is in all seriousness and im trying not to laugh while asking if i can have a photocopy because this is actual comedic GOLD. This sort of phooey doesnt actually happen in real life, right? I mean holy snappin turtles what the frog is this Skikaka? Jumpin Jiminy, Public school is bogus!
what the William Shatner is going on here?!
I approve of these so hard
"Well doesn’t that just bruise your banana"
I use at least half of these around my family
"Oh for the love of Barbara Streisand."
I dunno what you’re going on about. This is actually pretty useful.
I still use this as an Equius RP referance
You ever wonder why swear words are so socially unacceptable? When you think about cussing, someone isn’t getting introuble because they are verbally releasing a negative emotion; it’s actually only because of the social stigma in a certain word. For example “what the frog” is equivalent to “what the fuck” in the sense of angered bewilderment… Yet it’s okay to release it in “what the frog” but not in “what the fuck.” The simple letter arrangement of “f-u-c-k” and the stigma to the alternative way to say “sex” is what’s actually the “problem” with swearing. What I think is really weird when it comes to swear words is that society has tied social stigmas to certain words and their meanings - to the point where the release of a certain word or phrase like “fuck” is apparently worse than the release of the actual emotion. You’re allowed to release your emotion in any other word or phrase as long as it is not part of the list of socially negative (yet not actually negative) words, aka “swear words.” The negative in “fuck” is sex, the negative in “shit” is feces, and my personal favourites, the negative in “bitch” isn’t female dog - it’s that to be an empowered woman, and the “negative” in “cunt” is vagina - which shouldn’t be a negative to start with. The list continues. These are the things society has deemed inappropriate to publicly see or talk openly about. They’re not actually inappropriate. Most people have sex. Everyone shits. Woman are allowed to be empowered. They also have vaginas. A swear is just another fucking word. Other than bitch. Take that one as a compliment, girlfriends.

Why though? 😳
A Czech girl here to extensively talk about her country! This is actually fun tradition, and the ‘beating’ is mostly symbolic. It stings a bit but I can’t say that I’d consider it unbearably painful or abusive. Nobody forces women to participate, and today people only go to the other people they know. And honestly I find it much more preferable to tradition where they spill water on you or even worse perfume. (I did that once and I it was annoying and I smelled horrible. I’m happy for whipping thank you) Though there’s like revenge day for women who then spill water on guys. (I never did, or haven’t seen it done though)
As to why. Traditionally it is not because the men want to cause harm to the women, the spring whipping was meant as a way for women to stay healthy, pretty and fertile for the following year. The whip is called ‘Pomlázka’ which comes from the word ‘Pomlazení - Omlazení’ which translates into Rejuvenation. Young twigs are used for the whip to transfer the ‘life force’ into women.
The whip is usually traditionally made out of pussy willow so it’s flexible and women are more usually whipped on their legs rather than backsides, though I guess you usually cover both. And it’s not only unmarried women. Nowadays in most region it’s ‘all’ the women. Even my grandma gets symbolic whipping.
It was also a form of symbolic ‘courtship’. Traditionally on Easter we decorate actual eggs. There are many ways how to do this, personally I love decorating with bee wax (I got beekeepers in the family) but also with onion peels and flowers.

Decorated with straw
Now the eggs are also a symbols of New life. And men ‘court’ women by whipping them (in the past some women actually took offence if nobody came to them) and the women give the men the decorated eggs as a sign of forgiveness and thanks for the rejuvenation. In some regions they also decorate their whips with bows. And Guys have to sing a Eastern Carol asking for the eggs.
It sound kinda brutal when you say they whip women, and sometimes there are alcohol issues, but generally it’s really tame and I find it to be fun tradition.
Thank god you showed up before the 14 year old social justice bloggers did
