Oh, she used the F word in her valedictorian speech

This is not the first time a NTU valedictorian’s speech made it to the news. 2 years ago, Loo Zihan made it into the news for his speech about the school censorship.
This year, another NTU valedictorian, Trinetta Chong, made it into the news for saying “We fucking did it.” at the end of her speech. Check out the Youtube video. Scroll to the 5:30 mark if you just want to hear the “offending” sentence.

Honestly, I don’t know what is the big deal with using that word. Yes, fuck is a vulgar word. It is inappropriate to use profanity at such a formal event. But the F word is very versatile and can be used as an adverb enhancing an adjective. In this case, the word Fuck is not used as an profanity but as an expression. What’s the big deal?
Seriously, I don’t give a fuck. It’s 2011 already. It’s not like she use the F word for punctuation. I think we should be more open minded and not let this 4 letter word overshadow the entire speech and the message she is trying to bring across.
And speaking of valedictorian speech, I totally cannot remember the valedictorian speech at my Graduation. I think it’s the usual thank professor and parents blah blah blah type of speech. I don’t even remember if the person is a guy or a girl. Maybe I should ask my sister if she still remember the valedictorian speech at my graduation.
That’s what you get when you stick to the old traditions and don’t dare to break new boundaries.

  1. Guess what, she fucks too. So do all the bloody idiots who are making a big fuss about a genuine expression. I am sick of all the pretence we have in our society, starting from the self declared first world duds who run this country pretending they are the smartest pricks in the whole damn world and that this country will be ruins should they be voted out. Pretending to be holier than thou but without the any darm moral integrity. Go fuck it man

  2. I must show some thanks to the writer.
