What the Cuss?
I've never been a fan of cursing. Ever. I find it awfully vulgar and demeaning. It's basically an offensive way of attempting to make a point. Besides almost every curse word sounds ugly (including the word cuss). It breaks my heart a little each time I hear a loved one curse. Same goes for smoking a cigarette. I just don't support that type of behavior, But that's just me. I don't call my girlfriends "my b*tches" and or use the f word in every other sentence. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying I have never used foul language. Every now and again when I get angry I'll accidently let one slip. I usually feel lousy after saying it and a little embarrassed. This makes me wonder why others use curse words... Does it help relieve stress? or is it simply a learned habit? As a child, my sisters and I were never allowed to cuss. Remember the television show Bevis and Butthead? We don't. Our version was 'Bevis and BH'. lol While that may have been a little extreme, I deeply value my parents for forbidding me from using bad words. I definitely will be keeping that rule for my children. Words are beautiful and so full of meaning. That's one of the main reasons I enjoy writing. So since I can't seem to understand the subject maybe you can help... What's your opinion when it comes to a dirty mouth? are you for or against? do you care at all?
