Back in the day when language was full of taboos, telling someone to go take a hike was the equivalent of telling them to fuck off. There are no language taboos left. Even 3 year old toddlers can use formerly unspeakable words in the appropriate context and with feeling. Words lose their power. I remember when “that sucks” first got started, it grated on my entire body. Now I say it myself. I need a break. I think I’ll go take a hike.
