1984 starts now

A Nebraska judge has banned the use of the word "rape" in a sexual assault trial.

"...Jeffre Cheuvront, suddenly finds himself in a war of words with attorneys on both sides of a sexual assault trial. More worrisome, he appears to be at war with language itself, and his paradoxical answer is to ban it: Last fall, Cheuvront granted a motion by defense attorneys barring the use of the words rape, sexual assault, victim, assailant, and sexual assault kit from the trial of Pamir Safi—accused of raping Tory Bowen in October 2004."*


Is Judge Cheuvront familiar with the phrase "What the Fuck?"
