So I swear all the time. Literally all the time. I don't think I ever go more than five sentences without some kind of swear word thrown in somewhere. I never really considered the supposed morality of such a habit, until recently, when I asked myself: What exactly is wrong with swearing? And after some thought I realised, I have absolutely no clue. Like, seriously, none. To me the F word, the S word, the C word, etc. are all fairly harmless. At least, no more harmful than any other word. And yet western society seems to group these otherwise unrelated words together in a box labelled 'bad'. It's actually quite remarkable. Perhaps it's the leftovers of a predominantly christian mindset which still lingers in our culture, but if so, then that doesn't make it any less stupid. Hell, I'd even swear around kids. Why not? Shit is just another word for poo, and we're allowed to say that around kids. F*ck has sexual connotations, but I also firmly believe that sex shouldn't be dodged around either when children are concerned. I dunno, it's just strange to me. Maybe someone can enlighten me on what exactly is morally reprehensible about swearing.
