I had heard about this story only in passing and got little info about it until now. Evidently a band performing on campus at Missouri State was told not to use the dreaded "F-word" while performing, they used it anyway and the performance was halted, which resulted in students protesting outside of a University Bored(spelled incorrectly on purpose) of Governors' meeting. J.T. Eberhard was the organizer of the protest and states: "Our point is that they can't start censoring everything that may be offensive to somebody." I agree and more on how much I agree a little later. The MSU President Mike Nietzel responds to the protest by saying that he had hoped that students would "exercise (their right to protest) on issues more significant than using a dirty word." I'll bet you would Nietzel and by the way, Fuck you! There's a little bit more to the story in the link provided, but you get the gist of it.
Here's my take: To me, there are just as many words I find offensive and are used sometimes on a daily basis. Words and combined words like: Tuition hikes, higher taxes, "stay the course", Patriot Act, Dubai, wiretaps, Darfur, etc... and yes, these words are offensive to me due to how they effect me financially or even aesthetically. Take this time to ask yourselves, what (to you) is offensive language? Also, compare those words to others words like what I have stated and ask which has more of an offensive background? I can tell you, there are more words to be offended by than silly curse words.
