    Swearing has no place in our schools. Adding the f-bomb before every second word kills the meaning and added emphasis behind using it. You're likely to offend others and find yourself unwelcome in many places (your own classroom as you've experienced).

    It's appalling to think that anyone would consider using obsceneties in a classroom enviroment appopriate. Doing so undermines presicely what your teachers get paid to do: Teach. It's insulting; Despite our teachers trying to teach what is right and what is wrong, there are children using uncouth language because they think it makes them look older. That's a horrible reason to be using foul language. You use it because you just sprained your ankle. You use it because the asshole in the car behind you dosen't know what a safe distance between his car and yours is. You do NOT use it because you're going to the "****ing" mall and meeting up with your "****ing" freinds and asking them what the "****" they are up to.

    On the other hand, I don't really care when other people use foul language in front of me. It dosen't bother me in the least bit. I am worried, however, when my friends use such language in public. It's going to turn heads and to be honest, I'm not someone who wants to be the centre of attention. There's nothing wrong with swearing in and itself, but a classroom is NOT an appropriate place for it.

    i think its harmless unless the person using the words is threating someone else. theyre just words... as long as its not racial

    You know that. I know that. Many of us know that.

    But the public as a whole dosen't realise that and will think your intelligence lower if you and/or the group you're with is using it loudly in public or in a place where it can be overheard.

    Edit: I don't think I could have passed USA customs if I told the guard I wanted to "****ing" go to Mount Vernon because I wanted to buy a "****ing" PSP game. It's all about where and when it's appropriate.

    the standard person swears without realizing it. the problem comes from the super religious people who think you should be castrated for saying damn. its foolish.

    but honestly, what makes a word "bad" or good? anything tasteless maybe? wouldnt that make any words refering to reproductive organs bad? (with the exception of the "scientific" labels)

    its simple really... if youre offended by "swear words" then dont say em. freedom of speech emplys that i can use them in any context i want, so dont get offended when i use them either. swearing can be taken as immature, as a way to lighten the mood in a conversation, or make specific elements seem more dynamic. curse words arnt as taboo as they were say... 8yrs ago or so. its much more acceptable in modern days but you still need to know when the right and wrong time to use them

    Probably only when I am mad at something. Like if I spill juice on myself I would say awww S**t or wtF man or something. Other than that I am very articulate. I rarely say F. word but if you look it up it just means intercourse.

    in college, we dont have this problem
    a few of my teachers actually encourage it (mainly acting class)
    I mainly took liberal and visual art classes though, this had something to do with it.

    i was just watching sportscenter and the Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was cussing at a radio guy (i couldnt understand him because of his accent) and he was going crazy.
