A lot of feminists are using “oh my Goddess,” “Goddess only knows,” “what in Goddess’s name,” et cetera.

I use “god.”*

Growing up, we were not allowed to “take the lord’s name in vain.” Exclaiming “god!” was on par with “shit!” or “fuck!”

It’s the third of ten infamous commandments. Dogmatically speaking, it’s disrespectful and profane and you’re gonna burn in good ol’ dude-god-dude-devil hell for it.

For godssake, save “Goddess” for situations of sincerity.

If you need me, I’ll be over here pissing on patriarchal religion’s grave.

* I actually prefer “dangnabbit,” but for aesthetic, not philosophical, reasons.
