Putting stars in place of letters in no way makes a word less offensive.
Consider the word '****ing'.

It's about context.  I think it's wise that such a word have a star put
in it in the weekly news or a journal article as it shows the author is
less bombastic and doesn't want to use loud language - which counts for
a lot in other's opinions.
