So what would be the problem with swearing in environments where there are no kids (e.g., at work, at the gym, at the bar, whatever)?

Also, I think kids these days are basically a bunch of pussies because their parents have tried to shelter them from life and reality, and it's eventually going to be the downfall of our society.

I only started cursing when I began to drive at 17. I don't anymore though. When I hear other people do it they seem less intelligent, so I try to refrain.

In regular conversation I don't cuss. When I'm drunk, or really pissed off/frustrated I will let the f-bombs fly.

odor, it is a matter of timing with kids. they will eventually be exposed to the bad stuff in this world of course, but at an early age, they cannot determine for themselves what is right or wrong, and have a predisposition to follow/pattern themselves after all sorts of images they experience in life, tv, parents, other kids, society, pictures, etc. do we really have to explain this to you?

Does anyone else find it really funny when little kids are learning to swear, but do it wrong?

It's way more fun getting little kids drunk and watching them stumble around.

Apparently parents get really upset when you put cigarettes, lighters, matches, condoms, etc inside those plastic Easter egg things, and hide those around the shopping mall just before the big Easter egg hunt events.

Growing up around my grandfather, cursing became a part of my natural speech pattern at an early age. I realized that the way I spoke in public was only degrading myself, so I really focused on stopping. Today, I rarely curse in a public setting, but around my very close friends, or when I'm drunk/stoned, I go on tirades that resemble a Warren Ellis comic.

I don't feel that the use of bad language in any way helps the speaker communicate more effectively.

I actually find it funny when intellectual women who are normally fairly reserved with their speech curse. It takes me by surprise and is usually on-point for the topic of conversation.

I rarely curse, but I did this morning as I scratched my nailpolish while attaching my son in his car seat. I heard his little voice: << C'est quoi, merde, maman ? >> Good going, Fabienne.

It's grating as all hell to hear somebody use fuck in every sentence (and so uncreatively) whether the context calls for it or not. It really does make the person sound like a rube, especially next to an inventive swearer. Example: I know guys who I don't think I've ever heard say 'very' -- instead it's 'fuckin'', every single mother-verying time.

I do not swear. I have tried to cut out any expletives in addition to not using "swear" words.

Expletive not being a swear word, but a word you would say when you hammer your thumb.
