It gets more discouraging the older I get, when I read and positively see what’s coming out on T.V. Recently, I read about the “F” word becoming accepted in just about every situation. Someone’s got to be kidding, right? Those who are going along with this must have had a very sad upbringing (possible in some circumstances) and lack of intelligence or the misunderstanding of the word, however you may view it. The explanation for it seems to be relieving stress!
The foul language being used tells me something of a person’s mental capacity. Are they so lazy that it’s a strain to come out with a proper word that would tell you their feelings or thoughts? Tell me, do these people eat with the same mouth they talk with? If this were a medical situation, would you accept a doctor prescribing poison to help overcome a problem? Using a proper word seems to be on the way out, because so many are following suit.
What you possibly say at home is your business. My reaction when I hear it in public definitely makes me look at that individual and think someone should have put soap in that one’s mouth. I do know so many think it acceptable, but not in my company or at home.
My pet answer to this is as follows: “Profanity is the attempt of the feeble-minded to express themselves forcibly.” For those who aren’t sure, think about it. “If the shoe fits, wear it.”
