You don't mind them sonically blurring out the offending words. Like that Maroon 5/Christina Aguilera song where he sings the refrain "....I don't give a sh1t" and the word is blatantly cut.

Rather it's the actual altering of the lyric that is actually ridiculous. It snuffs out the original content and it's censorship like that which irks people. However, you get to listen to it with it's original content any time you wish and if radio stations/DJ's who have control of content decide to censor songs from their play lists then just accept it as their prerogative.

Personally, I'd be glad to get a break from that song - It's been over-played to death, would be quite happy to never hear it again.

But but but he calls her a slut. Surely that level of shaming of her sexual choices is more offensive than her suggesting he may be a gay.

Imagine letting words have so much power over you. Must not be able to sleep at night knowing somewhere someone is saying the word ******.

Art of any kind is only really art because it provokes an emotional response.
It opens the viewer or listener to the views of the artist and the viewer then interprets that view through their life experience.

I'm very opposed to changing lyrics, hiding pictures or ignoring film because they make a homophobic, racist, or any other kind of phobic view.
Art needs to be viewed and understood as being "of its time" and more specifically to being a view of its creator.

Disney have hidden away and deleted most of its famously racist stuff, Whereas as WB have taken the path of showing a disclaimer before a lot of their early Tom and Jerry and other stuff outlining the we they came from, and affirming racism is wrong but this is the artwork view it if you wish.

The level of revisionism and deletion or ignoring of works from bygone times that hit a phobia is very worrying to me.
The history of our arts, much like history of our societies is being manipulated and directed to reflect current tastes rather than reflect the realities of the times.
