          I am studying to become a linguist and we believe that words themselves are not bad. They are arbitrary assignments to real world concepts. People make the words bad.

            In addition to my last comment, Melody. I still choose not to use that word. I understand that the word may be vulgar and offensive to you (understandably). Other people may find it acceptable in their dialects, however.

              I saw that thread that said 'see you next tuesday' and I was wondering what was up with that, bu tnow I know!!! LOL.

              I can at times have a truckers mouth myself, but with my daughter being 3, I am trying really hard to control it. If I let something slip in front of her, I correct it right away with something else like 'frig' 'darn' 'shoot'. There is one other cover up word that I used that everyone laughs at, but of course I can't think of it right now!!!

                One might argue that it's a sad day when a woman does something worthy of being called that word, but to each their own opinions :)

                LOL I have a few that I use around the young or sensitive..."Blast!" for the S word..."Freak" "Flip" or "Frick" for the F word...and "Beep" for the B word. They work in a pinch :)

                  I'm Irish. And (not to generalize) Irish folk, swear like troopers! One might say, "nice ****ing day out, isn't it?!" and there is no offense intended. The C-word gets bandied around quite a bit too...

                    I think everyone missed my point! I don't care that the "c" word was used...I was stating the one time I log on from work I read a thread with that word in it and that it served me right for logging on from work!

                    I am logged on right now from work....being very careful opening threads! ha!

                      I got your point, we just majorly highjacked your thread - sorry!

                      And BTW what are you doing logging on at work again? HAHA I'll refrain from cursing just in case they are on you!
