If someone's calling you out for swearing in here.....realize that you've made a valid point with no misspellings....
....because they'd call you out on the misspellings first .....due to the fact that they have no rebuttal to your argument.

I see nothing wrong with swearing. Curse words are used to emphasize a feeling or sometimes. How can any word be bad. That being said, I did not swear in front of my daughter when she was young. I will not be swearing in front of my son when he gets a little older. I do not swear around those who I know are offended by it. I never used the f word around my mom until she said it one day. On here, I simply f******* write my curse words like that. When my daughter got older and I did swear around her and she did one day, I told her that if she noticed, I didn't swear around certain people because they were offended by it, and that most people have a problem with kids swearing, so I would like for her to not swear until she got older. Now she charges her step-dad 25 cents each time he swears inappropriately. (stubbing his toe would be appropriate) She doesn't get a cent out of me, some of her friends swear more around her than I do.

Nothing is quite as expressive as cussing, and it most certainly can drive a point home quickly.
I agree if someone is calling you out for cursing, it's because they don't have anything else to knock your argument down with.
I certainly don't find cussing as offensive or as aggressive as some other things that are said on here.

I will admit...I swear like a trucker. I'm from Jersey and we say friggen a lot, for some reason. Growing up my mom cursed a lot and it's just something we do. I don't understand what makes a curse word...I mean someone decided that "fuck" was a bad word..what if they decided that "higgybuggle" was a curse word.
Also, just to make this very clear...I am trying very very hard not to swear near my 16 month old. My husband swears but I'm the one that is with her all day. When I burn myself or something I find myself saying "fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffrankenstein!!!!!!"

I don't swear in front of my kids and my kids dont swear full stop. There is nothing worse than hearing a young child swear...it sounds awful.
I was on the bus the other day with my kids and they started talking to this little boy. As we stood up to get off at our stop my little girl said to the boy "bye bye, nice to meet you" to which he replied "yea, see you later wanker f*#cks" The mum didn't even bat an eyelid. I stopped next to her and said "oh thats lovely" and she then said to me..."WHAT? whats ya problem ffs" At least i knew where her little boy had learnt such foul language.

Haha Jenn, I was just telling that to my tattoo artist. He was telling me he tattooed a woman and she was crying and he felt bad. I told him about the Mythbuster's episode where when they cussed they lasted longer with their hand in the ice water. He said next time someone cries he will tell them to curse away.

I swear daily, but try not to do it in front of the kids. It doe happen sometimes when I'm really mad or I hurt myself though. I like the way swearing is a great stress reliever - proven fact! People who swear when they hurt themselves feel LESS pain.

as bad as it is to admit, the hubby and I throw some swear words around like they were as common as'sand' or 'dirt'. We have been trying for 3 years now to cut back(to no avail unfortunately) and have even heard our 23 month old walk around the house and say "oh fuck" like its normal talk. It is funny to hear, and we try hard not to laugh, definately tell him thats not a nice word, and remind ourselves to watch our mouths. But its easier said than done lol
Candice.... they sound like my neighbors. One guy talks loudly on his phone and it's f this and f that EVERY other word (he's the one I was thinking of when I want to ask if he knows any other word).
I'm personally against all swearing, but I can 'see' it under certain circumstances. Saying f this or f that every other word though just for the sake of saying it.... makes you sound like an idiot. I don't care if you have a million college degrees... if you talk like THAT.... I'll think you're an idiot. ;)

See, now that bothers me, Candice. I have no problem with swearing when you're angry or frustrated, or to add emphasis or make a point. But gratuitious swearing like that, where every third word is profanity, that really irritates me. Let's just say, it does not leave me with a favorable first impression of a person when I hear them talking that way.

Ive been attempting not to swear AS much, but its hard as my bf and cousin work on the oil rigs and swear every other word there and then come home and cant stop which makes me start ( accidentally) .

I have really learnt to control myself in front of my son because he started copying everything I said and made me feel terrible. I used to say shit all the time but changed it and say 'poohey' a lot now instead. My husband swears too much and just can't seem to control it at all, to the point where I won't go to kids birthday parties with him because I am too worried he will swear in front of everyone's kids!

So, one day, my oldest (he's 3) was sitting by the window saying "fuck, fuck, fuck." I'm not sure where he got it from, as we don't swear around him. I think he was saying another word and just replaced the first letter. Anyways, I told him that wasn't a nice word to say and people wouldn't like to hear him say it. He said, "But mommy, I'm not saying it to a person, I'm saying fuck to the snow and the snow doesn't have ears." How can you argue with that? lol - especially since I felt the same way about the snow!
Nope. I don't swear. We hear it all the time from the neighbors and I hate the way it sounds. I just want to yell at them... don't you know any other words?!
Yeah, when little 3-4 year olds are calling your 9 year olds 'little f'ers' and threatening to beat them up.... Yeah, swearing parents are SOOO cool. @@

My fav two lines are
"for f**k sakes" & "You got to be f**king kidding me" These are held for the special kind of idiots! :0)
Right now in my house the fav line to yell out when someone wants to swear is "Shut the front door". My husband and I swear, we dont swear at our kids, or any person it isnt acceptiable infront of. Ie his parents, they are a much older generation then my parents, so out of respect we try to never swear infront of them. Where as my parents had me at 18, so they are much closer to my generation, and we swear infront of them.

Swear words are just words it is intent that can be offensive.
I use them to express myself when I REALLY want to drive home that point like " wow that was fucking awesome "
which is so much more awesome than the word alone or I use them to express pain like when I drop something on my toe .
I do not direct swear words at people or use it as a weapon and there are certain places where I know not to use them , why is it ok to teach them it is ok to do it by yourself and not at work ? because there are a million things I am allowed to do by myself and not at work like drink a glass of wine , have a nap , wear pyjamas , masturbate , ride a bike , have a shower ........Do you think people who swear can't turn it off when the time calls for it ?
It is inevitable that children will grow up to hear swear words and use them as long as they know there are appropriate ways to use them and places to use them , they are a form of expression and that is all .

I think it's wrong to curse. Period. I'm certainly not perfect. I used to curse really bad when I was active duty military. It was too easy to pick up on the habit when I was around it all the time. But since I had my first child I've stopped. I still slip once in a while. Like when I stub my tow or drop my cell phone. I think parents are the most important example and role model for their children and I think it's wrong to tell your child not to curse and then you turn around and do it. I think it steals part of their innocence away. They are going to grow up soon enough and when they become adults they will have to make their own choices. They will also have to get jobs. And MOST employers DON'T allow cursing because it is unprofessional. So if your child won't be allowed to curse at their future job, why "teach" them that it's okay by doing it yourself? Just saying. ..

when the kids go to bed and it takes two hours to get them there ya i go in the bathroom and read allowed a book, called "go the fuck to sleep." works wonders. I go from raging mad to smiling and being able to laugh again lol. swearing is therapy but no of course not appropriate around kids and i must say girls that sound like thug punks and swear like dirty chimneys and stink like tobacco or stuff big gigantic cigars in their mouths - I'm sorry I have to say sound very unclassy and are slightly embarrasing to be around. I hold my tongue because I know people may have differing opinions or tolerances or societal standards towrads something as "expressive" as swearing. I've also been told that swearing around kids is a form of corruption thus a form of emotional abuse so I keep that in mind when I get frustrated around my kids or whatever..

I swear. I'm a nurse, and apparently nurses swear just as much as people in the military.
I don't call my kids cuss names, but if I'm mad and yelling, Mommy swears!
My kids swear occasionally, but not very often. We correct them. When they ask why we can say that word but they can't, we tell them that it is because we are adults, and it is not a nice word, but adults have the privileged to use those words if they choose to.
Also, we listen to rock, ect. If the kids are singing the song and the song has a cuss word it in, the kids can sing the word.

I once had a reply in which i had no misspellings, nor did I swear.
I was then told that I "needed Jesus in my life" (my OTHER, OTHER favorite argument.)
....I told her I already had plenty of nails, so I wouldn't need 3 more.
...boy, was she pissed.

I cuss like a sailor, and I have no problem with that. I don't swear around my kids, it is for adult ears and eyes. I was told yesterday in a debate, that my cursing was aggressive. So I was wondering how many of you felt that way. I have no problem with people cursing when they are debating, I don't think in anyway it reflects your lifestyle, or who you are. They are words to express your feelings. If you are going to judge my debate cause I say fuck, or bitch...well.....I think that is a bit pompous.
