I rarely swear on internet, mostly 0.1% chance. I don't like the outcome of me typing "fuck" and such. It doesn't sound good to me and it would make contrasts on my personality.

As for RL, profanities on a Filipino language is bad for me (dunno, it sounds really bad and so solid), even if my friends do swear a lot. I think I swear some time, but not daily. I also take those words as a lolreaction rather than real swearing.
I don't think I've ever sweared for over a few months now when it comes to in real life. I think the closest I got to swearing was saying 'what the heck'.

As for the internet, I usually swear for the lulz and actually censor it partially ('f*ck') for a 'comedical' effect in suitable situations. I only do this with one or two people though, so most of the people who know me, probably know me as someone who doesn't swear at all.

(Well, I occasionally say 'f diz' but again, the swear word isn't 'complete').

My blog. I could post stuff now and then

My Assembly for the SNES tutorial (it's actually finished now!)
I try to avoid swearing as much as possible. I don't mind it too much, but I still prefer not to do it. One of my friends explained that swearing is simply 'a way to show very strong emotion'. I can agree with that statement, since although profanities have meanings, they are often just used to express strong emotions. For example, when a person says 'motherfucker', they do not refer to someone having sexual intercourse with their mother. They are simply using the word to express their emotions.
I actually swear a lot just not so much online cause it's easier to filter yourself. I also filter myself when I LP before I know I have a broad audience that range from young to old. As an actual person though I am very foul mouthed.

They're derogatory and hold a rather negative connotation. They are, or were used, to ridicule and belitte certain groups of people. So they're not "just words" to throw around.

e.g
Words like "bitch, cunt, twat, clit, whore, cuntiferous and hoe" and any similar words emphasize on the sexual glorification of women only good for making a man's penis go crazy and/or make a man a sandwich.

Nigga/nigger are racist terms conjured by the bigot white supremacists, so yes it does hold an offensive tone. It's ridiculous how black people refer to each other with that like it was nothing.

Fuck (you) is very offensive in the simple reason that it means "why don't you tear your ass/vagina open". Are you not going to be offended when you feel strong about something and someone just replies "Fuck you"?

Retard, shit, ass, chink, uppity, and whatever other "profanity" all hold a derogatory position and are negative.

I could go on, but seriously. It's all derogatory and contains negative connotation.
Now the N word (and other racial slurs) I can understand. However, I just feel that the other words being considered such taboo is a bit silly. Who is it that arbitrarily decided it was these words that should be considered so offensive? Basically I understand that the words have rude meanings, but I don't see why "fuck you" should be considered worse than "screw you". They mean the same thing so the distinction seems rather arbitrary to me.
I sometimes swear in real life, but usually under my breath, as my parents are strongly religious and I would rather not needlessly offend them.

I may or may not swear online, although sometimes I do out of anger/frustration, but usually I'm just joking around. Whatever the case, I avoid racist/sexist/homophobic slurs like the plague (i.e. n***er, b*tch, and f*g), and I tend to hate the said slurs.

I do find that swearing when ticked off tends to relieve stress a bit, although I don't usually do so in real life when other people are around.

Ironically, using a sentence with 'dogging' in it can also be a problem in the UK.

Either way, I probably swear too much in real life. Not as bad on the internet, though. The problem with swear words is that none of them are offensive at all. People just attach negative meanings to them. If you tell someone to 'fuck off' in an angry tone, then they have every right to be annoyed, but if you use the word randomly in a sentence without directing it at anyone, then it shouldn't be something people get offended by, because its just a word.

If you say a word with the purpose of offending someone, fair enough, but the idea of someone being offended with the word itself is just stupid.

Really? Thats pretty interesting. Is the meaning of it related to "bitch", or something similar?

Yeah, so what if I haven't shoveled out my signature yet, I'll get to it later.

Its slang for having sex in public. Not really a swear word, but not the sort of thing you'd mention in polite conversation.

Because it's used in that way? It's in the connotation - how ever it used is how it's taken. Arbitrary? Maybe - question the origins and whoever said "Fuck thine own mother" for the first time ever.

And IIRC "sucks", "screw", and "blows" were actually derogatory ords - just lost their meanings as it went on.

Here, if you were smiling because you're happy, will you describe it as a "smile", "grimace", "grin", or "smirk"? They all mean the same thing - but they all hold different "connotations". Would you describe your happy time as "a huge grin" or "a huge smirk"?

Who in the world decided which is positive and which is negative?

If you still don't see why then I don't know what else to say.
Question, Punk:

Take these two situations where "fuck you" is used:

1) Directly as an insult toward someone.
2) In a movie toward a fictional character.


I think we can agree that it's reasonable to be offended in situation 1. How about 2? I hear people get offended about stuff like that all the time, and THAT is silly. The person getting offended isn't insulted at all; they just whine and shout at the particular arrangement of letters and/or syllables.


Connotation is important to know to avoid unintentional offense. You don't just say "nigger" at the drop of a hat. However, there are people out there who would get offended by me saying that word in a completely inoffensive context, like, say, how I just used it. THOSE people are stupid, and what I, at least, complain about.



I swear casually. I am capable of filtering when I need to, but I generally swear quite casually. It's sort of habit, but it's not really a problem. It's just the way I talk. It's occasionally a bit of a problem on IRC because people think I'm angry when I'm really not, but in real life it hasn't really been a problem at all.



Yeah I sometimes have that problem when talking via text as well. But not tooo often

I find it quite interesting that people haven't actually talked about where the words actual came from and there true non-derogatory meanings.

Ass - Donkey
Bitch - Female breading dog
Hell - Place of damnation in some religions
Shit - Fecal matter
Fuck - (Depending on the etymology you look at) to breed, to strike, to beget
Damn(ed) - To be Condemnation by God

Though Racal slurs were created just to belittle and degrade a certain race so I'm not going over those.
It depends on the slur, but quite a lot actually started as euphemisms. "Negro" was a sort of euphemism when "nigger" fell out of style, and now it's a slur as well.

This is much more prominent with euphemisms for handicaps. "Retarded" is almost 100% an insult now, but was originally used to nicely refer to someone with a mental disability. "Special" is a sort of more recent version of the same phenomenon.

Perhaps of note, the opposite can happen as well. Things that were originally insults become badges of pride; see things like nerd, geek, weeaboo, etc. As I am bi, were someone to call me a fag, I'd proudly agree with them.
The arbitrary use of syllables as some sort of "no-no" word is obnoxious.
So saying shit, fuck, anything you can think of, among company who find it acceptable, is absolutely no problem.

Your concern is with those who do have a problem and you have an obligation to them (your mother, your teacher, your boss). So I won't censor myself with my friends, or even on the internet where a teacher could read what I wrote, but I am not socially obligated to account for that.

Basically what's the problem in swearing.
I try not to swear at all. Lately, however, I've found myself swearing in Spanish at the stupidest things! It's terrifying; I don't like cussing, it makes me feel dirty.

Plus, you could seriously offend someone, or worse, inadvertently teach a child a new favorite word.

I generally pay no respect for people who get offended by swearing, mostly because there's simply no reason to get offended by swears or other profanities.

However I don't see much reason going around constantly swearing for no fucking reason constantly fucking swearing all the fucking time, unless you're trying to prove a point.
