You are an adult. Harness that negative energy and express it in a mild manner...and not like you are exploding...suck it up at all times...
Swearing isn't always negative energy - it's the tone and the context of the conversation that decides it. I don't mind it.
True. You don't overuse it... And in fact, I remember you getting to the point about a subject without the help of swear words. Odd. Some people seem to need that help.
Don't get me wrong. I am an advocate self-expression...first and formost. But when "colourful" language is being used in a milieu that needs no more colour...then...what is the point?
Some people use it on their daily basis, with no malice whatsoever. There's some places here in Portugal where swearing is as normal as breathing. It all depends. Each persoanl has their personal view. There's no need to exist a point. Most people don't need one. They just use it.
It possible that some people would then need to tailor their vocabulary to their surroundings...
I remember working at a summer job with these French Canadiennes...oh man...every second word was Mon Dieu this or Sacre Bleu that...and these were the only ones I understood...! (I craned my neck to listen - I don't quite understand that)
Anyhew if any of my sisters were bringing one of those lads home...I knew they'd really have to clean up their language...ha...
I've never said people can just swear in whatever place they feel like it. I mean, they can, it's not illegal, but most people won't swear in front of children, for example. Many people have some sense of common decency to their surroundings.
I guess it would be dependant on the locality... Like "Sailor just naturally swear?" Or something like that....
And I know some people who will say the words "You Bitch!" ...without any animosity...and yet STILL get heck from their sister for using the "B" word...: )
As Ser says there is a filter to those ppl who cringe at every profane word... Don't let yourself be one of them... Rise above it and use it but don't overuse it...
You can "debate" without the help of swearing... Some people seem to need that help.
I am an advocate self-expression...first and formost. But when "colourful" language is being used in a milieu which needs no more colour...then...what is the point?
Ser wants everyone to know that swearing is to be used as a tool...a creative tool...to be used when in fact you know exactly when you want to use it and how.
Oh when I am mad you can bet your bottom dollar I am gonna cuss enough to make a sailor blush.
Yes...but if you get into a "debate" with someone...it doesn't help if they start "f" this and "f" that...right? I mean...keep it undercontrol right? If your angry and are justifiably so...fine...but not and the word is NO GRATUITOUS SWEARING am I right?
Some people...when they get into a conversation around here...they can't control their language...or something...
No starting out a debate that way takes away your credibility in my opinion.
I know for me personally when I get fired up it just comes flowing out and half the time I don't notice I am saying it.
Obviously, swearing is no more "necessary" than a zillion other things people do because they want to....
And it's so impressive, right?
No, it just feels pretty good when one saves curse words up for when they really mean it.
I did say no gratuitous swearing...ha.
Yes cussing is needed to emphasis on certain items of passion or caring.
To me it's just language and is used to get your fucking point across. See how it works?
Fuck off, you twat.
Using coarse language is a skill. It's not about the amount of swearing, it's simply about the creative usage of it.
But when I say something like "d*m" then people come back and say "Dude, what's the matter with you? Don't you know you can swear on the internet?"
Swearing is not just for the uneducated or people of a lower socioeconomic class — it knows no social boundaries in its expression.

Swearing can be effective if its presumed and as an adjective...for example, " It is just too flippin hot in Phoenix for a turtleneck in July.
