I’m not shocked by the occasional swear word in a conversation, or when a person is hurt or in shock.
What I don’t understand is the need to add these words all the time, and on to things like mugs, t-shirts, etc…. just for the sake of it because its thought funny or clever.
Kids will come across these words naturally, why should they be surrounded by them all the time? They always used to be saved for when appropriate, but now they are just thrown liberally into any type of conversation. Why?
Is this due to a general lack of vocabulary knowledge, and people don’t know there are many other more words that they could use jn those situations?
Is it just that people consider them impressive and clever to use?
Core values of respect and responsibility also apply to how we speak with/to others, as well as how we treat each other. I, like you, use swear words. I do try to take the individual situation into account as much as possible. No, I don’t always get it right, but we can all try.
