    There's never really been a point that I stopped using cuss words. Sometimes I thought it might have been nice to try, but it was never something I felt entirely necessary.

    As a person, and not having to do anything with being religious or anything, I always felt that it was easy to be respectable and know when not to utter certain kinds of language.

    There's an issue I always had with some of those Christians who tried to teach that foul language was inappropriate. While I'm fine with the idea that they find it offensive I never completely knew why, especially in some instances. Like if you were to stub your toe, and yell "fuck" or something, what is so offensive about that?

    But the main issue I guess is that I always felt that if I wanted to, I could quite easily defend my use of cuss words by going with them a second mile so to speak. Because these people who find cuss words to be offensive to others always seem to have their own words to use as a replacement for each and every one of them. All their words mean exactly the same thing.

    I say shit. They say crap.

    I say damn (dunno why that is so offensive). They say darn, or dang.

    I say "that bitch is a cheating slut." They say "That woman is an adulteress... AND SHE'S GOING TO HELL FOR IT!"


    Really. I don't get it. Never have.

    that's their way of assimilation.. more conformity the more influence one has over another.

    i guess..

    i see your point you're trying to make, mem.

    i still know some friends who would rather say fudge, than fuck.

    but in the end, the reason why they're saying it is still the same - anger. no?

    i still don't see the difference, but i do know why the elders wouldn't like to be hearing such cuss words in the first place ...

    [turn] ...

    the fact that you aren't supposed to say them is what makes them potent for expressing anger in the first place. if they become 'accepted' then they are essentially rendered meaningless.. fuck is just another word for procreation... shit is just another word for fecal matter.. so we have to continue to pretend they're bad while continuing to use them when the situation calls for it. it's the only way to keep our beloved profanity sacred. just rely on the fact that someone will always manage to be offended...

    I believe that whether cussing is wrong or not, it all comes back to the heart of the person.

    Is it a sin for a child to repeat a bad word he overheard his parents using? No. Is it wrong for us to yell obscene words when we smash our thumbs under something? It's debatable. Are you yelling because it hurts or cursing God for what has just happened? Why not yell, "That hurt!" rather than, "FUCK! God dammit!"

    I am guilty of cussing as much as the next average Joe, but I can't remember the last time I sat and thought about the consequences of my actions. Have we as a society become numb to cussing just as we have become numb to pornography on our television screens? I believe so.

    When it comes down to it, it’s wrong for me to click on a Spanky thread and call him a girly, fuck traded, nut hugging faggot… but I do anyway. My hypocritical outlook on this topic may just be an indiscernible mess of words, but I know how I was brought up and my actions would not make my mother, or the Christian God proud.
