Red Wing vs. Lockheed!

Don't do it, guys!

and yeah, the Avengers should've brought more muscles.

Mod Note

This comment isn't precisely mod business, but! I do have an interest in seeing m*****f***** run out of town, and of course we do have a 'shit not on what those oppressed have fought for' policy which the mod team is obliged/pleased to enforce. And so:

I'm with you, definitely, on "the second term" being far more disgusting and flippantly offensive than it's generally given credit for - but going in with why isn't this [thing that's generally regarded as not so bad] worse than this [thing that's generally accepted as totally bad, after long years of work, pain and effort] is essentially sabotaging your own argument.. Hence your original mod note.

Everyone's going to hear it as "I don't think that this [generally accepted as bad] word is so bad after all"; if you want to push for the re-assessment of m*****f***** (and a unrelated thread isn't the beest place for that, but anyway) you'll probably catch far more flies with an argument that builds solidarity with other outlawed-because-disgusting words, such as n*****. You're entitled to your opinion that one is worse than the other, but opinions served straight don't tend to be the most convincing of debate arguments.
