Keeping It Classy At Vogue.

Shag, Marry or Kill

Pardon me but when did it become acceptable for the term "shag" to appear on the Vogue website?

In a brief video segment entitled "Find Out Who Kylie, Bella, and Lottie Would Shag, Marry, and Kill", Kylie Jenner, Bella Hadid and Lottie Moss are asked to speculate on the topic of who they would gladly "shag" if they had the opportunity ...

Perhaps the American editors of Vogue are confused about what the term actually means. "To shag" is a colloquial British expression that means "to f***". While it's commonly used as a substitute for the term "f***" and might be considered slightly less vulgar than the f word, it remains a vulgar term nonetheless. It's the type of expression you might use in private whilst in conversation with girlfriends. It's certainly not a term you would use in your workplace or with strangers. In other words, it has no place on the Vogue website.

Then again, Vogue hasn't been Vogue in quite a long time, has it?

I concur. The general tone of everything fashion-related has declined deplorably.

And while we're at it, could we exile the entire Kardashian/Jenner clan to some far away remote island (preferably with little food, water, or means of electronic communication). Now THERE'S a reality show.
