Do you lose respect for someone if they swear?

Let's say a certain person had a habit of swearing. Would you be offended? And do you think that people who swear are less intelligent than those who don't?

  • swear no. but if they're backstabbing, or insulting other people like being racist, stereotyping others, no matter how old he/she is, I will never ever respect them. jerks are jerks regardless whatever gender/age they are

  • Sometimes I swear too much and when I notice I get really embarrassed. Like i'll actually apologize and I'll try to go a week or so without doing it as a way of breaking the habit. But a few months later it usually comes back for a while. I don't lose respect for people who do but I lose a little respect for people who every other word is fuck this or shit that and they obviously don't care.

  • I personally don't like it - I won't start grading anybody by their use or non use of bad language - I do feel if you are swearing for the sake of swearing it is off putting like in normal conversation.

  • No, not really. I cringe when they are overusing profanity but I swear sometimes so I can't get mad at others for doing the same.

  • If they have the intention to disrespect me then I don't have any respect for him. But if he swears at every sentence he makes, it just sounds less intelligent but I'm not offended.

  • I am so foul mouthed that I've been criticized for being "less ladylike" since I was a teen. To me, it's no big deal, I know how to tone it down and can control myself, but if the convo is casual I'll drop some fucks, shits, cocks, etc. No one has ever accused me of being less intelligent because I tell people to eat shit popsicles and fuck off.

  • Well there are different uses of swearing. If a person likes to use swear words in an argument, that means they can't keep a rational mindset when faced with a conflict. I try to avoid people like them.

    But I am quite a swearer I guess haha... I just use it to express myself. To emphasize how I feel about a certain situation (usually comes after the swear word) or person. I am a very expressive person like that and language (including the swear words) is how I express myself. If I can never swear again, I would lose that expressive part of me and I would only be like half of who I am.

  • Honestly I don't see why swearing should even offend people unless it's being directed towards them in order to insult them. Otherwise they're simply means of expression and are synonyms of other words that are fine to say. Truthfully there is so much more shit to be offended about, let people speak however they want it really doesn't hurt anyone. If it really does bother you though then just walk away, simple as that.
