    So, how often do you swear? Is it something you do spontaneously or without thinking, or something that you only do consciously when you're really upset/angry/whatever about something...or is it perhaps something that you don't do at all? Were you ever punished for swearing as a child?

    Furthermore, do you find the use of swear words offensive, or is it something that doesn't particularly bother you? Is the tone and context that determines the vulgarity of a word, or the meaning of that word itself?

    As some of you may know, I don't swear too often and when I do, I feel like I have to apologize for each time that I do it since my family is religious and if I cuss in front of them, idk what will happen, I know that I'll get punished but in what way idk. Overall, I'm not offended at the use of swear words, in fact, pretty much all of my friends swear.

    I grew up/live around massive swearing/racial slur useage (neighbors/family are 60+, they grew up in a era where such slurs were commonplace/considered ok. They KNOW its not ok to say anymore but they still say them around each other/in massive rage). I've avoided using slurs but swears have slipped by in the past. The youngest I remember swearing was 10-11. I still do my best to avoid swearing but sometimes I get mad/terrified and swear on reflex. Apparently I once called my dad the worst swear word but I legit don't remember it at all. Luckily dad laughs it off when he mentions it, so it must have been a long time ago or he wasn't affected by it. >n<''

    I always got in trouble for swearing as a little kid. Now I unconsciously do it. My mother doesn't care. She only does if it's a word that is severe. I get away with 3 of the words she considers swearing. It's getting to the point where I'm mad practically every day. I look for a positive but every day brings more problems than solutions

    I just posted in a separate thread and spent a solid minute debating whether to use the phrase "talking crap about" or "talking shit about". When I do swear, I do so very deliberately, because there has to be no other phrase to adequately convey what I want to say. I think my avoidance of this vocabulary starts when I was really little, I said a bad word (probably "heck" or "freaking") and my mother literally put a squirt of hand soap into my mouth and had me swallow it, to "wash out" the badness (this was the 90s). Whether that is the cause or not, the personality change stuck with me.

    I get around this by sometimes making up other phrases to use when angry, often because it gets me laughing and less angry. "Son of a submariner!" or "Holy diver!" or "Oh what the ffffart."

    There are only a few words that I refuse to say in any context whatsoever, even just conjuring them in my mind's voice, and I think they're all racial descriptors. I'm totally aware of who is and who isn't societally "allowed" to say these words and in what contexts, but I just tell myself to never say them ever. It's not worth being mistaken for something I'm not when such a word slips out even under friendly circumstances, and there is 100% of the time always another word that can identify/describe someone.

    If I get up in the morning without swearing at least once I'm probably going to die soon.

    But I only really swear to myself, not really when other people are around. In my thoughts and dreams swear words are like the bible.

    Swearing - the gateway to relief when you can't hit your head on a desk without people worrying about you. I don't swear a lot, but I definitely do when I get upset or just ticked off at someone or something. It's also something a lot of my story characters do just because it's in their nature, but it helps me as well, especially with the drama my friends can cause. Heh... I don't necessarily enjoy swearing, though, as it's not exactly welcome where I go right now. I just do it because of the relief it gives me. (And the drama is starting up again in a group chat we have. Yah...)

    I might mutter a swear to myself a few times a day, but never loud enough for people to hear. I don’t like swearing in front of people, and definitely not to anyone’s face.

    I only swear when I get irritated, and it's usually a "lighter" sweat word like damn or hell. I'm not into swearing, but it definitely does escape on occasion. I'd be lying if I said it didn't.

    Some days I'm a total swearing machine, and some other days I'm like avoiding swearing as much as I can, I have no explanation why x3
    When I swear it's usually because I did something dumb, or to tease someone (but it's never to harm anyone, I will never say "f*** you" to someone in a serious manner)

    From time to time, yeah. More irl than online though haha, but even then it isn't much and can surprise some people since they don't see it coming. : sweatdrop: I give off a friendly and pure vibe so it can catch people that don't know me well enough off guard.

    Swearing's not offensive to me; I just dislike when people swear like sailors, since that makes it difficult to communicate with them. lol

    I don't swear. I won't say I'm never tempted to swear, because that would be cake a lie, but I have enough control to not do it.

    I do find it offensive, but I don't let other people doing it bother me. When it comes to the mass media, I just tune it out; in personal relationships, those that know how I feel either apologize because we were new in our relationship and they didn't want to offend me, or are in a close enough relationship to know that I'm not going to flip because of a dropped swear word.

    I don't generally. I'm Glaswegian so sometimes if I hurt my self a swear comes out, it's in my blood afterall XD
    But in general conversation I never swear. I don't mind if others swear, I barely notice it to be honest (again, glaswegian, I'm used to it) but I do cringe when people do it in front of kids.

    I swear a lot. Even when I'm not angry and simply talking casually I'll drop random 'fucks' and other swears into my sentences.
    I try not to swear on here though because I know there are younger members floating around. I'll admit it's pretty hard :P

    I'm not really a swearer, but I don't really feel guilty when I do say a swear word here or there. I am careful to only swear around my family, who is just as casual about it as I am, and not around people in our church, because I'm pretty sure they'll all just die of a spontaneous heart attack in shock if they heard me say bulls***.
    Most of the time when I swear it's because I'm telling one of my siblings about a story I'm working on, and the character I'm talking about is a swearer. Of course, I do sometimes swear casually when there's really not a good alternative to use (seriously, does anybody know a word that isn't as offensive, but still carries the same meaning as 'bitch'?)
    One thing that I won't ever do though, and I'll feel horrible if it does happen, is swear with the sole purpose of causing pain to somebody else. In my opinion, swears are great for expressing frustration, and they can be humorous sometimes, but it's not okay to use them to cause offense.

    I almost never swear. I have never sworn in public, very rarely under my breath, and I actually swore out loud for the first time in my life yesterday. Nobody was around, and I can't say that I plan on doing so again in the future, but it will probably happen eventually. I am altogether against swearing, but I am not going to try to stop you for swearing in my presence unless children are near.

    My mom literally washed my sister’s mouth out with soap, although she didn’t make her swallow it. I think it was for saying “potty words” and she was 5 and I was 10, which had a lasting impact on me. I made a huge effort not to swear for a really long time.

    Now, I alternate between “fuck,” “bitch,” “frick,” and “hecking.” The rougher words are things that just flow naturally in conversation and are used for emphasis or description or just friendly ways to refer to my friends, odd as it may seem. “Frick” and “hecking” are much lighter, “ironic” ways of swearing that made it into my vocabulary after my mother insisted I watch my language. I never meant for hecking to become a part of my vocabulary, and somehow it did anyway.

    The day I swear in front of someone is the day I die. I don't swear at all in public. The only time I do is when I'm quoting someone else or just quoting something in general. In private, I rarely swear, but sometimes I do get angry or frustrated enough to go down a swearing fit. However, never in front of others, and never in a loud tone. There was actually a time where I replaced the f word with fudge and it worked way better than frick, probably because of the start. Either way, it has been ingrained in my mind forever, as now when I stub my toe or get in some kind of instant pain like that, I yell fudge into the room. Great for when I'm working around kids.
