Foul words are increasingly being used on the national television as well as on the radio. People are learning that saying a foul word is not only acceptable but also that it makes you cool. This becomes problematic especially for young people who are increasingly using foul language to the point that the meaning of these foul words is being lost and they've become a part of their daily language.
It's becoming more common. No doubt about it. This is one reason that I believe in absolute moral values. There are things that you do, or don't do, in any society. Some things are harmful. Others are not. The fact is, peoples actions are based on morals. These actions have a positive or harmful effect on society.
One of the reasons the use of curse is up is because much of the social media people use is much freer when it comes to using profanity. One encounters profanity all the time on the popular websites people go to. In the past, when television and radio were the main source of entertainment, people did not become accustomed and accepting curse words because they were simply prohibited by the government. The government has no such control over the internet, thus it's freer and changing peoples' perspective on the use of curse words.
I think language on TV is far too censored compared to other graphic images already in display. The US has no problem showing violence and gore, but take issue with nudity and language? I think they should just show everything unedited and leave it to the parents to decide what their kids should watch.
Our countries taboo on sex and language is an absolute joke with how much we worship violence. It is time to stop pretending children need to have the innocence protected. No one is going to be hurt by someone cursing on television. We have already moved from even slightly "bad
language being banned everywhere to only a few words being banned now. Hell, even some of those words are fine to say on tv after 10 PM on cable or on some channels. It is time to drop the charade of false morality that we try and build in this country.
