Should swearing be acceptable any time, any place?

I'm not sure if someone has already made a debate on this subject, but if they have I apologise. Anyways, the title is pretty self explanatory. If anyone somehow finds a way to bring religion into this debate though, I'll probably neck myself - no Hellno, that is not a challenge ;)

Oh for fuck's sake! It's just sounds people and the more and more that they're used the less offensive they become... So, one could argue that it is our fucking duty to curse our god damn asses off to save the little fucks from the evil swear words in the future!

P.S. Ummm.... I'm not sure what you're talking about, SP, when you say you might 'neck yourself' but that probably shouldn't be acceptable any time, any place... I mean, if that's anything like the big black lady that gives "zucchinis" to Chuck... we don't need to know about all that. Damn you Brits and Aussies are some sick bastards.

Side: Yes

Oh c'mon, what is wrong with a little neighbourly love ?

I dont know about being acceptable any time or place but I dont have a problem with swearing in fact I swear a fuck of a lot and to be honest cunt is an easier word to use and spell than vaginaa!!

Seriously though their only words and have been around for hundreds of years if you read the unedited versions of a lot of the classics their chock full of profanity Chaucer was shocking and swore nearly as much in his books as NWA did in their songs. So good enough for classic english literature good enough for me.

I've been cursing left and right since I can remember. I have yet to be cursed for my efforts.

It's superstitious bullshit. Cuss all you fucking want. I like cussing in supermarkets in front of kids and their moms and see their horrified faces, like a plague of raining frogs is set to wreak havoc upon their SUVs outside or something.

Like their wretched little spawn was going to do shit but abuse painkillers and cry about life when they grew up anyway.

Side: Yes

Of course, there is always some clown who wants to censor everything. What next? Language POLICE!

No! Swearing has literally brought our civilization down morally. It's rude and it can be offensive or hurtful to the people around us when we swear. If we say "f* you" we don't really mean it! Sure we can hate someone but is it worse because you swear at them! It doesn't make us cool (for teenagers) and it doesn't help us get respect from the people around us! (adults) Most people have gotten into the bad habit of swearing and TV shows don't help. South Park, Family Guy, while these shows can be hilarious they imprint the swears into our minds! Whether we care about it our not or whether we see it or not it has brought us low in standards. It's not right in any place nor should it be.

... shut the fuck up.

(That's ironic so I should not be reported for it, Andy, if you get complaints. You see, normally "shut the fuck up" adds nothing to the debate but in this particular instance it fits perfectly. How many times did you want to just say "shut the fuck up" but it didn't really meet the spirit-criteria of a debate site. Here was a golden opportunity. It's a chance to say "shut the fuck up" and at the same time show the irony of the position. After all, what's happened as a result of "shut the fuck up," other than enter super hope-ee face and fingers crossed, may be, elevated dialogue on the subject? Aaaaaahhhhh HA!)

No?

Alright. Everyone shut the fuck up.

I told Atheists "shut the fuck up and listen" in another debate created by me.

I don't feel bad, not one ounce.

It's cool, the "fuck" words should mean little, yet means and intends much on its own.

They probably reported me but I doubt I will get banned.

What is your solution to end the demise in our morality? Is it the thought or language police?

Side: Yes

I think they have become overused now. I think there are times where it is approtite to voice anger or shock using profanity, but you don't need drop the f-bomb or whatever everytime you are describing something. It takes away the emotional meaning of the words.

Side: No

These are'nt words that should be used just because something has gone wrong look em up in a dictionary and check out their usage in classic litariture they are descrptive words, its funny but the only time they seem to get used correctly is in porn, so my message watch shit loads of porn its educational!!!

Side: Yes

I totally agree with you. I actually smile when I hear cussing from someone who barely ever cusses. It's so much more meaningful. I get just as annoyed by people who over use cuss words (Though I have good friends who do, and it makes them appear less intelligent then they actually are) as I do with those who think cussing is this huge problem.

It depends really but I don't swear for several reasons because its rude to swear and nobody wants to hear that garbage out of someone's mouth its gets annoying and old a lot of times.

Here are reasons why I don't swear:

If I ever do swear I will feel guilty that I swore and insulted someone and then I will feel bad for the rest of the day.

-Its insulting and it is dirty language that doesn't need to be said at all.

- There is another reason why I don't swear and since the person said in the description not to bring it up I won't bring it up.

Its fine if you guys swear but I am sorry I extremely against it, and to me when people swear that means they are angry and all the time I hear it is at my school and all the time those people are angry.

Side: No

Okay, but WHY is profanity and "swearing" so frowned upon. Really, the only reason is because most societies decided to for some idiotic reason.

And no, using profanity DOESN'T make you look narrow minded or unintelligent. It's simply thrust upon people for reason "to keep things the same."

Profanity is PERFECTLY acceptable. Anything to the contrary is stiffiling expression and speech.

I have absolutely no idea what this means? Would you and Mackindale care to discuss it here?

(Sorry SP! Just kiddin', just kiddin')

No I don't want to discuss it with Mackindale. Remember SP says that he didn't want religion being brought into this debate he said in the description above so I that is why I didn't say anything about my belief system.

Swearing must remain powerful. If we allow it into mainstream speech, it will lose it's power.

Making sure to act as if the words have some sort of power seems to give them power.

If you let these words become common and overused, what meaning will they have?

We must make all people fear them so they retain power over the weak and naive.

Fuck no!!! ;)

It's only impolite if the social group you are involved with determines it to be impolite. I know plenty of people who don't get offended in the slightest by cussing. If someone from outside a group that finds cussing acceptable were to show up and complain every time they heard a word that they considered taboo, THAT would be impolite.

Why should a big deal be made over taboo words? It seems to me that making a big deal out of certain words is really a waste of time.

Swearing is bad .
