Opinions on swearing?

So what are your opinions?

 

are they just words, should they only be used in moderation, should you be hung from the highest tree for dropping an f bomb?

I don't swear in public.

I only swear on the game and make my voice more mature to sound cool and hip and like I went through puberties

 

If I hear it used in public (especially adults) I laugh and cheer 'em on for making a public profanity. "Go you!"

I mean, Sure they are words, but it's the meaning behind the words.

The finger...Now that is just a finger, I mean, raising my index finger for 5 secs doesn't do anything. The Middle finger has no meaning what so ever, it's the dumbass people who make "The finger" a bad thing

I think swearing is... fuck what was I going to say? :3

 

In all seriousness though, I try to refrain from using swears as much as possible, usually just dirties whatever you're trying to say. And I never use them when I'm getting to know them, can make a bad impression.

Online I think swearing is fine, it makes you sound more mature in some occasions, or sometimes people just dont get the message.

IRL I hate it, when people say "f*** you" i wont talk to them for days. Exceptions are when like i spill my drink and say shit or smthin

I tend to refrain from swearing for the most part as there's just so many other fun and colorful descriptors out there. Why would I call someone a fucking asshole when I can instead call them a dog-nosed, pear-faced, corn-smuggler? Granted, most insults like that don't make a whole lot of sense, but they do tend to cause people to pause as they try to figure out exactly how they've been insulted and how to even make an appropriate comeback.

 

One side effect of this is that when I do swear, people actually notice and realize that I'm not joking around and either something has really pissed me off or there is a very serious situation happening.

We have words for a reason, and using swear words generally is fitting when you're arguing with someone or you want to make your point seem a bit stronger.  Unless of course 60% of your sentence consists of those words, in which case you look like a fucking idiot.

Well depends. If by swearing you mean what swearing actually means, saying stuff like Jesus Christ when you bump your toe again, then no. I attempt to moderate my swearing, because I'm a Christian. I just am not very good at controlling myself. And if you mean foul language like calling somebody a fucking retard, I do that a lot, both on the internet and in real life. I don't see any point in moderating the usage of foul language. Tv shows in the Netherlands have open usage of foul language and swearing (none of those annoying constant beeps), and I approve of that. If foul language upsets you, you seriously need to grow the fuck up. The world isn't filled with flowers, rainbows and dancing unicorns, it's a piece of garbage.

Words are just words. Sure, they are impolite words and I refrain from using them around people whom I respect such as my family, at work, etc.

They don't really make you sound "mature", but if you use them poorly, you sound immature, the same as any other word. Words mean something and nowadays no one knows enough actual words to express themselves so they just use swears.

 

With my peers: All the time

With anyone else: Never

They're fine in the right context. Don't use them in front of a teacher or your parents, but if you say them in a game while talking to your friends, who really cares.

 

I only use them when I'm angry :D

Swearing is okay, just don't be an immature 9-year-old using it like "FAGGOT DICK SUCKER FUCKING DUMBASS EAT A DICK YOU FUCKING FAGGOT"

One of my favorite lines from a play ever "Language is a poor enough form of communication as it is. We need every damn word we've got."

Bad words don't make sense because ass and butt are the same thing. fuck and sex are the same thing. bitch and female dog are the same thing.
