Floyd and Mary Beth Brown

Happily, a number of state legislators are currently considering banning similar language in the college, secondary and elementary classrooms. Ask your local legislator to consider joining this cause. It is wrong for classroom teachers to use excretory and sexual language in the instruction of children, but with research, you will find it commonplace in most local schools.

Finally, we encourage private institutions, businesses and community organizations to ban obscene language from their establishments. We have a no-profanity clause written into the employee manual at our office, and you should seek the same from your employer.

Working together, we can collectively raise the level of our discourse and discussion. And just maybe it will filter up into the halls of the U.S. Congress.
