  • I swear very little and I agree with @AzureGirl that swear words are usually not really necessary. But I also think prohibiting children from swearing is kinda dumb. It's not like uttering a word is gonna hurt them.
    I just think English native speakers and especially Americans swear way too much in general. When I listen to people in my every day life in my country and young people I met when I lived in America, the swearing frequency is so different.

  • I started at 13 (I'm still 13 ha ha) I think 13+ is fine. I don't think those words are necessary in every day language, but I swear when I'm angry or annoyed. I think 13+ is an okay age.

    • first time I gave a kid the double middle fingers was in third grade and the teacher made me move my star all the way down the rainbow to red.

    • Ha ha that's really young!

  • Honestly, what is the purpose of cussing? To say it is adult language is stupid. I am 34 years old, I can't tell my boss to go fuck himself, or tell my female coworkers that I love the smell of cunt. I mean, come on, that is just stupid to even say it in public.

  • Eh, I don't think swear words are usually necessary regardless of age. But I guess around high school age, 16+.
