Do you swear/curse or use bad language? Why or why not?
What Girls Said 25
i do swear, not habitually in every sentence like some people, but if something warrants a f*** or **** I don't hesitate to use it.
i think it depends on where you were raised, in my country as a whole, it's not a big deal, my middle class mum swears, but I get the impression from American friends they take it a bit more seriously?2

All the time! It's just natural to me. And besides, swearing can relieve stress, the way the words trip off the tongue :)1
Swearing, cursing, these words are used to intentionally hurt someone. On the other hand, I don't only constitute these the only form of bad language. I also believe anything that is said to hurt another is bad language because there is no reason to make someone else feel bad on purpose. I believe that you can talk it through and reason with people without arguing.Saying horrid things to another will only prolong the problem and even aggravate it.0
No. I feel like it's unnecessary, rude, and is over used by ignorant, angry people. That type of language can be replaced by more appropriate words and still get the same or similar message across.0
It just naturally comes out sometimes, or whenever the situation warrants it. I don't utilize it every other sentence, but sometimes some things need a little more emphasis than other things, and that's when profanity comes out.0
I say "crap" occassionally. Otherwise, I use expressions like "oh fudge" and "what the monkey biscuit." It's more fun and totally kid safe. :)0
I curse because I want to, haha.
I do know how not to do it though, there is a time and a place for cursing.0
No because it has negative meaning. This makes me feel negative inside.1
I do...but of course if I'm at work or with someone(s)that doesn't like it,then I refrain from using it. Otherwise,I curse like a sailor;-)0
I only use bad language when I'm angry, otherwise I try not to use it.0
Yes I do, but mostly when I hurt myself, which happens a lot due to my clumsiness, but it does relieve pain!0
Yep! I have a bit of a sailor's mouth.. it relieves stress for one, but it's really just habit at this stage.0
I tend to dó it when I'm upset or get shocked :O :/0
Mostly when I drive :P1
F*** yeah, I do.1
When I am in a bad mood or to offend people.0
I curse when I'm angry.0
Yes, cause its a habit and I don't really care0

Yes I do, they're just another way of expressing one self and I think the impression of it has a lot to do with when you say them and in what whey. You can easily say some none swear words and make them sound even worse so I think it's healthy to a certain point to use swear words if you even use them at all.1
No. I don't like bad language. It kinda ruins the whole... pleasure of talking to someone or a group of people. I don't like hearing bad language either. It can be funny sometimes (if it's in a joke for example); but I don't like it in any other places.0
Everyday to and from work, when I watch TV especially the news or reality TV shows, when I play pc games.
I often don't mean it, it's just a lot of slip of the tongue hehehe. I use it to let off my frustration at that specific time, so I don't have to deal with it at a later time.0
I do occasionally. It's usually not directed at anyone and meant to be a cathartic experience for myself (is in blowing off steam). I also think it can be done well and eloquently or poorly and with pure vulgarity.1
I cuss a little bit. But when someone drops an F-bomb every other word, I assume he/she has a history of incarceration, substance abuse, or military experience. I can forgive veterans for their profanity IF and ONLY IF they don't also get busted or intoxicated. I used to live with 7 roommates, two of whom were ex-military. One was a potty mouth who dropped F-bombs in every sentence and the other NEVER cursed at all. They CAN get help, & I DEMAND they get help so they can remember how to talk without every other word being an F-bomb.
You'll never F***ing make any F***ing sense to my F***ing a-double-s if you can't even F***ing talk without constantly dropping F-bombs.1
Yes, I do. A lot. Predominantly in my native language. But, seldom do I use it to cuss someone. I use cuss words in buddy talks. It gives me a sense of intimacy when I talk to my close friends. They do the same to me, too. It is fun to use, too.0
I don't have many vices, but colorful language is one of them. I know when to rein it in, though.0
I think of swearing like mid sentence explanation marks. IT JUST MAKES A BETTER F***ING POINT! :)0
