swearing isn't bad. Schools ban it because a small incredibly conservative minority complains about it. Swearing is only swearing is because a bunch of morons just said: "hey, this word is going to become a taboo and explicit word for no good reason." and now words that originally had no deragatory meaning has now been accepted as being bad into common morality for no reason whatsoever? Yep. So you only cringe because society made you cringe? Mothers cover up their child's ear when bad words are being spoken because society tells them too? Yes. So see, "bad" words are just words.

Swearing is bad M'kay. Don't do that M'kay. Drugs are also bad, so don't do those either. M'kay.

M'kay MrMackie but just saying that it's bad doesn't really make it bad. Plus, all of your students do it so you should be used to it by now.

Pro

My students have learned, M'kay. I never see them cuss, M'kay. Cussing is bad, M'kay. It hurts feelings M'kay.

Bad words only hurt because you choose them to hurt, M'kay. Psychological bullying should hurt WAAAY more, not just bad words like: "Motherf****r!" "B***h!". Those words shouldn't be banned. They should ban the words "Gay" and "Retard" from being used in a derogatory manor, because that's offensive to homosexuals and Mentally Handicaped persons. Cussing is just words and shouldn't offend anybody.

Pro

What about the c--- word? That was made just to offend. M'kay? Also, you know people are going to use cussing to put down people no matter what, M'kay? Vote for me, M'kay.

I'm not encouraging swearing, or saying its a mature thing, I'm just saying that they are just words and shouldn't be punished or made a huge deal about.

It takes someone with low communication skills to even want to use this kind of speech. And no respect for those who wpould not like hearing it. It serves no other purpose than to offend someone. Only the immature find that compelling.
