Under certain circumstances, urgent circumstances, desperate circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer.

No shiat.

Oh boo farking hoo. Moralizing shiat birds. It is 2021 and you're all going to hear some shiat whether you like it or not.

There is a lot more to curse about.
 
2021-06-11 10:29:25 AM  
I actually swear less these days, because I'm an old lady and it seems a little unseemly.  But less for me is no great achievement.
 
2021-06-11 10:32:02 AM  
If swearing a lot is part of your personality, you're boring.
 
2021-06-11 10:32:02 AM  
the fark you say

There was a report on NPR that said that taboo words have moved from sex/bodily function to race, sexuality, etc.

So people have no farking problem saying fark all, but few people are going to casually drop the N bomb.  In a sense, we're not really cursing more; our curses have changed.

I don't swear as much as I used to, it just seems tacky, unprofessional, and makes you look stupid if you use it too much. Now when I do swear I mean it and people know I mean it and there is a good damn reason to, there was one person that almost made me swear daily from their incompetence, it was staggering how she could screw up simple tasks.
 
2021-06-11 10:37:25 AM  
If you rarely swear it makes an occasion when you do so work so much more impactful.

Well that was a failed edit.  I blame Loki.

Swearing is becoming too mainstream. It's time to stop.

Doesn't matter.  Nobody listens to what I say anyway.

I don't know if we're cursing any more or less, but with everybody having a spy phone these days, more of it is getting captured.
 
2021-06-11 10:46:22 AM  
I only curse when I'm in pain. I'm in pain a lot. It really does help.
 
2021-06-11 10:46:33 AM  
I was laid off and therefore changed jobs, I swear a lot less now.

Yet here on FARK we can still count on being hit with censor-filters for words that have been allowed on daytime TV since the 1990s, like biatch and shiat. And we can count on "until" behind an open parenthesis being turned into "coontil" because it makes someone giggle long past the point of being funny.

FARK is starting to look like the Loyal Order of Water Buffalos from the Flintstones: Just full of old guys in funny hats being told not to cuss while we're bowling, because it upsets the sponsors.

F*ck you and your kids. Keep them locked up at home if you don't want them exposed to stuff you don't like. It isn't the world's job to hide itself from your children.

Asshole.

I'm not sure I could drive without swearing.
For me personally the biggest uptick in my swearing was when I was watching Deadwood.
