To Curse or Not To Curse...
Topic: Crap I Don't Understand

So, a number of my friends have recently begun a quest to limit the amount of foul language they use on a daily basis. While I agree that this kind of language can sometimes make you appear less intelligent than you would like, I have to say that I wholeheartedly disagree with the idea that we should limit ourselves in this manner.

Here's why...

I am all about working to improve your language skills - I have been the recipient of the word of the day emails from two dictionaries for over 5 years; however, totally eliminating cursing is a bandwagon I don't think I can get on - at least not in everyday conversation - perhaps in the workplace, but then aren't we most likely in need of such language at work anyway? 

Think about it for a second, the real challenge is living your life so that you don't need to use any kind of expletive at all, whether that expletive is deemed profane or not. Making it so that you aren't upset enough to use an invective, even if it is something like 'freakin' or 'nuts' or 'poop'. Because then, you really aren't just avoiding use of bad words, but in reality are still wishing to use profanity, but are censoring yourself based on a preconceived notion that certain words are somehow 'bad'. When in reality someone at some point in history determined that these words should be deemed as such. I say, until you can remove yourself from situations that would cause stress enough to use any word in explecatively, you shouldn't limit yourself by removing these 'profane' words from your lexicon.

That being said...Go Fuck Yourself! :)

I couldn't agree more! Douche bag is one of my favorite and most used words!

Thanks. Mine, too, though I often shorten it to dbag to save precious time!
