I'm Inappropriate!

When Habladora at The Feminist Underground reported that the mere addition of the word "abortion" to her blog earned her an NC17 rating from this blog-rater, I got curious.

Sure enough, it seems like that dirty "a" word referring to a safe and totally legal medical procudure is to blame for the same rating on this blog:

This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words:

abortion (4x) drugs (2x) pissed
It's funny to me that these are the offensive words, since I'm sure I've dropped an f-bomb here and there, but whatever. Apparently, using the word "abortion" is about as subversive as you can get.

What would your mother say?

Ha. She would have much more of a problem with the word "pissed" than the word "abortion".
