It represents the f' word but that's just about it. It's just like every other finger on your hand but the one in the middle that has no use except to show,"screw you". (I don't want to use profanity).

It can't hurt you in any way unless you get easily offended by little things.

Does it?

Nah, I couldn't care less about people waving their middle finger in my face. I ain't gonna get offended by such a petty act. In fact, it takes alot to actually offend me.

well, if someone randomly comes up to you and says f*ck you, you, most likely, won't get angry because it's the context it's said in just like with the middle finger. It's never the literal meaning that offends, it's the intent.

Meh. Not really. I just don't care.

Are they not signifying that their IQ = 01? That's what I always thought of they were demonstrating.

Nope. Probably because in different places its different fingers that mean you-know-what so the actual "middle finger" doesn't insult me.

I take it as an insult because that's how it's interpreted in the culture I'm used to. Do I get angry over it? No, not really. Mostly because whoever would give me such a gesture is not someone I even acknowledge.

Honestly, I feel that having a person point at me normally with their index finger is a lot more offending than the "middle finger". That being said, neither bothers me much at all; if I was so petty a person to react with such offense to a simple extension of a single finger, regardless of the intent, I'd feel pretty pathetic myself...

...It's an entirely different story if a person starts stabbing at me with their middle finger, shouting "F*ck you!", though.

No, but if they stick it up too close to me, they're going to lose it.

Grab, twist right, insult negated, and the other person won't do it again.

No and if someone does to me I smile and flash a peace sign or a big wave xD which pisses them off more :p

If somebody does that to me I just laugh it off or Go meh on them.
