Is it OK to swear/curse?

Postby Cereskia » Mon Mar 08, 2021 2:50 am

Swear words, Curse words, Expletives! we all commonly say it in our lives, don't we? we all remember our parents telling us to Watch our language, telling us to not do profanity or just "There are no swear words in my house". Now, what is swearing?

Definition of swearing: using foul or vulgar language

Swearing is commonly used to express our emotions, mainly hate, fright, anger or impressment (idk what being impressed is in emotion.)
But Really, is it ok to swear? or is it not ok to curse, and you should hold your emotion until you can't contain it anymore?

Those that express your emotions are ok by me, but when it is downright insulting you? that crosses the line.

Tbh, I do actually swear, often in the most furious and frustrating experiences I ever had only. I wouldn't actually say I am fascinated by them, I can just say that this is one of the reasons why I love watching South Park.

Cursing is okay I guess, it isn’t something that I’m gonna stop people from doing but I’m not going to encourage people to do it.

Yeah it's fine, I try not to swear that often, just because it makes it funnier/more impactful when I do and I really try not to accidentally swear around children or really old people like my Nan.

i don't use swear words a lot in real life, i'm around people younger than me most of the time and only swear around older family members, or friends, or you can swear really anywhere you go, nobody can stop you

Yes, My fellow NSers. I do believe we should all be engaged in the use of profanities. Anyone one of you good-hearted folk that disagrees with me on this opinion must be engaging frequently in tomfoolery and other absurd acts.
