French is a Romance language, belonging to the Indo-European family. It descended from the spoken Latin language of the Roman Empire, as did languages such as Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Romanian, Catalan and others. Its closest relatives are the ... other langues d'oïl—languages historically spoken in northern France and in southern Belgium, which French has largely supplanted. French was also influenced by native Celtic languages of Roman Gaul and by the Frankish language of the post-Roman Frankish invaders. Today, owing to France's past overseas expansion, there are numerous French-based creole languages, most notably Haitian Creole.French is the second-most widespread language worldwide after English, as only these two languages are spoken on all five continents. French is an official language in 29 countries, most of which form la francophonie, the community of French-speaking countries   more

People should be able to say and post whatever they want. If you're offended, that's your fault.

Only authoritarian regimes and morons want anyone's voice censored

Censorship is not okay, for it is harmful. There is so much censorship happening in the US lately that its absurd. Books are getting banned for being deemed too violent, despite offering great views on history. An example of that is the banning of Frederick Douglass. May people are offended by many things, some are offended by others being offended by something of theirs. Censorship limits the point of views being offered to young people today, this will continue until everyone in the US is are mindless zombies whom all think alike. Censorship leads to everyone conforming to a delusional society, and takes away choices for people; I don't know about you, but that doesn't seem like something I want.

Yes - (this is gonna take just a minute) -- if* - truth is paramount.. And illusion, deception, malconception is destructive (by and large) - then* {in anything censored, among other deceptions}- all things on which we act (and think) would be unfounded , corrupted, and wrong (if not by slimmer chance to be neutral or beneficial for the accidental reasons for which we would act) ..Then so too , would censorship almost almost literally if not actually be the non disclosure of the truth.. Taking into hiding true real and actual information.. Information on which the reality on which we should know and act accordingly on is non existent , corrupted, or destroyed.. - then proving that we are faulted in knowledge and action on things so said to be (an acted on) as Censored ...To be flat about it.. Its hiding the truth.. Any Generalized Censorship is simply lying to the public.. Very particular censorship for certain provisionally protected individuals is another matter.. But general censorship is nothing more than the abuse of authoritative power to manipulate mass perception.. - ie - Censorship IS Harmful to Society

I think true censorship is harmful, for a variety of reasons. At the same time, there seems to be a lot of confusion lately about what censorship entails. This confusion manifests along the lines of 'I should be able to say/do whatever I want, and if you tell me not to, you're impinging upon my freedom of speech and censoring me!' Slander, defamation, death threats - it seems like today people think they should be able to do all this, and if they get told to stop, well they think they're being censored.
