Bad Ass Coffee. Am I terribly offended? No. Am I
disappointed? Yes. You can defend one meaning all you want, but if
you are going to write in defense of one meaning, then you are
defending all of the other connotations. Frankly, I’m
disappointed in everyone that wrote in to defend something that is so
obviously in poor taste.
If you’re OK with the name, then are you OK with your
children using the phrase? I sure don’t want my child saying,
“Dad, there’s that bad-ass coffee
place!” or, “Do you like this bad-ass
picture that I drew for you?” or, “Hey, Jimmy, do you want to play at
my bad-ass house?” You probably don’t either.
If you don’t want your children saying it, then why do
you want them reading it? Come on, people. If you stand for family
and community, then you know better. And don’t tell me how
many times one of the words is used in the Bible. You don’t find
the phrase “bad ass” in the Bible. And don’t give me Webster’s
definition for one of the words. When you put the words together it’s
a double entendre, and it is in poor taste.
Thank you Anita, for reminding us what family and
community are all about.
