What is obscene? and would I use an obscenity?
What is obscene is subjective and context dependent. Because it's all subjective I only use certain words if I believe the audience will not be offended: thus the word isn't obscene.
As I don't know the audience reading this, I choose to censor what I write. I am not offended by the four letter word in question but that does not mean I would use it in front of complete strangers.
In a article in one of the broadsheet papers most people in the UK would now not be offended by the word in question, however a formerly commonly used word to describe people of Pakistan origin is now considered by most people to be a highly offensive racist slur and isn't used in polite society.
