  • It takes away freedeom

    Smart and intelligent people do no use profanity. When society craves the degraded, it shows that we have taken away our freedoms, because many people say that it is just the way I am or "it's just human nature." With this, we are becoming objects instead of agents, because we do have the power not to swear. This is why swearing is bad

  • Yes, swearing is very rarely, if ever, necessary.

    There is entirely too much swearing in today's society. It is not only bad because it's offensive, but it is bad because there are almost always more descriptive words to use. For example, the "f-word" has become so pervasive - especially in movies and online - that it's somewhat meaningless while being offensive at the same time.

    People should use swear words, even the milder ones, with great caution. If someone uses swear words frequently and inappropriately, it alerts me to the possibility that the person is poorly educated and cannot think of better words.


  • Yes, its very bad

    People say its bad to swear at children, but then does age make the difference of who can swear or not? How many businesses would they accept people who swear? Even if you don't show it in public is swearing the only way to say what we want to say? Swearing is swearing no matter how you put it. A lie is a lie. Same with swearing.

  • You sound un-intelligent

    A swear word is just a replacement of other words that is used in a sentence. When people use swear words, it makes people think they just can't think of another word, meaning they're kinda stupid and don't know how to speak English well enough to think of a better word.

  • Swearing is bad because

    It has a meaning like most words, because we are most people are taught from a young age it's appropriate to swear. They don't understand the true meaning behind it and what it can do to a person. It can kill them. Yes, a word can kill a person. How so it has a meaning. You may not think swearing is bad, but your just one of them taught at a young age. Swearing is also not necessary and people who swear don't really have a rich vocabulary because all they use is swears.

  • Swearing is not needed

    Some areas actually have laws against profanity around children and the general public. If the profanity is so bad that it "disturbs the peace" such as I have paid for a movie or dinner - I do not need to hear a lot of cursing from other patrons or worse a visitor. The ability to articulate what the problem is and work to a solution is the best use of minds. Even continuous loud noise is disturbing the peace.

  • Swearing is bad

    It is a sign of ignorance and bad attitude. Swearing is disrespectful. There are many other words in the english language. Swearing is abusive. Swearing sounds bad. Swearing is unhealthy and corrupts the English language.
    No one should swear!, whether they are young or old.
    It lacks imagination and doesn't accurately express people's feelings.

  • Evidence that swearing isn't so good:

    http://www.elle.com/beauty/health-fitness/advice/a2495/bad-habit-swearing/
    So, if you read any of those, you can tell that swearing isn't only bad because it is disrespectful, rude an generally not pleasant for the ears to listen to, it also affects your mental health and it can let out the kind of person you are.

  • No, not at all!

    Swears and curses are often considered to be the mark of low breeding and intellectual dead ends. I firmly disagree. While I could just as easily say, "Your behavior is unacceptable and I will not tolerate it." then walk away.. That is not nearly as cathartic as calling someone an (expletive deleted) and telling them where to shove it. The only real question is whether any given situation is the right one for swearing. At a club where someone is refusing to leave you alone? Swear at them. At a library or a dinner? Mind your manners (unless the host is okay with it).

  • It's f*cking AMAZING!

    I think we can all agree that no words create a better placebo effect for stress relief than words considered taboo by society. Whether you have banged your knee on the coffee table, or you are having tod deal with someone who is quite possibly the biggest idiot you've ever met, there's a few less-than-kind words for that.

  • It's just another part of language.

    They are only bad words because they are considered bad words by society and portrayed as such. They are just words, and part of our language, in every language.

    Sure, they can be shocking, but a lot of other words can be used to shock people. But language is necessary, and swearing is not a bad thing. All words can be used in a negative way, not just swear words. Okay, maybe swearing at a little kid isn't ideal, but nor is using other rude words at them.

    Some people say that swearing isn't necessary. In the words of Stephen Fry in response to that particular idea, 'it's not necessary to have coloured socks. It's not necessary for this cushion to be here. But no one ever writes in saying 'I was SHOCKED to see that cushion there! It really wasn't necessary.''

    Swearing isn't bad. They're just words, like all other words. It's just in the context people choose to use them in, like with all other words.

  • No, not at all!

    Swears and curses are often considered to be the mark of low breeding and intellectual dead ends. I firmly disagree.

  • No, swearing is covered under free speech!

    I completely disagree with this one! Swearing is covered under free speech. Now if the question was, “Is swearing at a child bad?” My answer would then be yes, alas, that is not the question. Another point I would like to make it just because one person considers it swearing, doesn’t mean all people consider it swearing.

  • They're just ordinary words

    Swear words just like any other word can be harmful if used in a certain way. If someone said fuck you, you should go kill yourself, it would obviously cause harm. In this case the swear word fuck is used to shame someone . However if I replace fuck another word that does this for example disgrace. You disgrace,you should go kill your self. Nothing really happens to the overall message,it's still causing harm. Some people may argue that if this is the case than swear words are not necessary but I have to disagree. The only difference between swear words and regular words is that the society deeemed them to be so called "bad words" but why they are just like any other word specifically english. They are based off of or taken from latin or one of the romance languages such as french, has been changed/modified over years. Take for example shit "The word shit entered the modern English language via having been derived from the Old English nouns scite and

    the Middle Low German schite, both meaning “dung,” and the Old English noun scitte, meaning “diarrhea.” Our most
    treasured cuss word has been with us a long time, showing up in written works both as a noun and as a verb as far back as the 14th century." https://www.snopes.com/language/acronyms/shit.asp So what makes them bad. Well according to Vsause's video why are swear words bad what are considered bad words often change and are moving towards acceptance https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Dd7dQh8u4Hc. Words considered as a swear word today might as well be just another ordinary word in a couple of years and vice versa. Meaning that technically swear words are ordinary words, they're just another part of language.

  • Nothing's wrong with swearing

    Swearing isn't bad it so normal now that when you hear it you barely notice it and when you say it you might not realize it until a few seconds after. So many people swear it's just a waste of someone's times to try and stop people from swearing, just let them be them and they'll let you be you.

  • Why Swearing isnt bad and why the bible isnt against it (solution)

    If we stopped saying that some words mean more than others, when they dont, this wouldnt be a problem. If we started using curse words as normal, everyday words, then we wouldnt have anything to worry about. There would be no sensory, no worry if you curse accidentally, no worry for your children to start cursing and maybe grow up ¨wrong¨. Getting rid of urse words, and integrating them as normal words, would help our society a lot.

  • Why are swear words so bad and why the bible isn't against it (opinion)

    What's wrong with swearing? Why are these words off limits when others aren't? To the people who think that swearing is bad, What makes swearing so bad?
    For example the word shit is just another word for poo or, in some cases, stuff.
    Swearing isn't always used as a negative thing!
    I could most definitely tell me friend that she looks f-ing great today without it offending her or making her feel bad.
    AND for those of you who say it is wrong in the bible, I have yet to see a scripture that says profanity is wrong. I haven't seen it say that cursing is wrong. I have seen where the bible says to be nice, but not where it says that cursing, or swearing ,is bad or wrong.

  • Inhibiting Swearing is a form of societal censorship and a form of dehumanization

    When we hear the common conservative argument that swearing is bad and that we should not do this, many fall victim to this type of ideology. Therefore creating a cult like society where parent and teachers attempt to inhibit the use of swear words. Unfortunately the repercussions of this outweigh hypothetical benefits. The American constitution guarantees the freedom of speech. Further more the United Nation's Universal Declaration of Human Rights preamble protects our rights to freedom of speech. Therefore as humans we have the freedom to say as we please. When our ability to have freedom of speech is inhibited its called censorship. What this form of censorship does is actually dehumanize people. Since one's right that granted to a human is not given to another individual, that individual can be considered as sub human or below being human. This is the epitome of dehumanization. According to Katheryn D. Katz, professor of law at Albany law school, dehumanization is synonymous with and leads to domination, slavery, and all forms of evil. By voting pro, you advocate for domination, slavery, and all forms of evil.
