Do you cuss?

I have never really liked to hear bad words. I wasn't raised with bad language in my home. I had friends families that did, but I never saw the point in using the words. I have always been able to express myself without it. I don't enjoy movies that have a lot of language, most of the time it seems like it takes away from the movie. What about you, do you cuss/curse/say bad words? Do you do it a lot? Were you raised in a home that used lots of bad language?

No I wasn't raised in a home like that but as the years went on and i started being on my own I was around friends that did it and when things wouldn't go right i would find myself doing it but not alot. It really isn't and dosn't make one look good at all but immature for it get's ya no where really.

I don't see the point in it, so I don't cuss most of the time. Just the other day, I was on the Skytrain and I saw a little girl yell the f-word at her dad.

I do cuss a little, but it's not generally a type of vocab that I use on a daily basis...and no, I wasn't raised in a household where everyone cursed accessively, and growing up there wasn't much of it on tv either. I don't dislike cursewords, in fact...I like looking into other languages for more colorful ones, every now and again. It's interesting, to me.

cuss? that is so cute!!! I was raised in a home where we kids RARELY heard a curse word and when we did it was shocking. I have a pretty foul mouth at times, I definately didn't learn it at home. I know it is not good, it happens in anger or frustration but I try to teach my kids that there are better words to use. I can't stand how some people use certain words like adjectives like f'n this and that. That just shows they aren't smart enough to know other descriptive words. I am guilty of it but I am uncomfortable watching a movie with too much of it.

No, I'm not fond of cursing. Even if my parents sometimes cuss, I don't follow because it's an ugly words. I find people who are cursing a lot a big turn off. Maybe I don't understand why they do that. It's just plain ugly words to me.

It is really nice to hear that there are still people in this world who don't like to curse. I don't curse either but it doesn't mean I have not done it,but most of the time I tried my hardest not to do so because you are what you speak....

I was raised in a family that cursed a lot, so it wasn't a surprise when I turned into an adult that also cursed. However, I also know that there are certain times and places where it's just not the thing to do, so I don't always say bad words, but I do quite often. It's somewhat a joke between my friends and I that I have the heart of a poet and the mouth of a sailor. LMAO!

I never ever used bad words or cursing words all my life. My parents would not let us talk those words inside the house. I have some classmates who said that so you know kids are, I imitated them and said it at home. My mom used to hear it and she scolded me and told me not to say those kind of words because it's not good. I am afraid to be scolded so until now, I was not able to say curse words again.

I wasn't brought up in an environment where cussing was rife and I used to find certain words unparlimentary and profane. But in the recent times I have been using profanity every now and then, especially when I get mad and have to say it to someone's face who deserves it. From regular usage it seems that the words are no longer offensive and it also makes us immune from getting offended too soon. I know its not really pleasant or commendable to use profanity, but its just a form of venting out one's frustration and anger. Sometimes it is fun too.

I don't really cuss, and if I do, it's really minor. I did "make up" my own words so I could cuss in public. I'm not sure if the people around me ever figured it out, but then I didn't do it that much. Of course, my husband uses a few words, and I'm trying to get him to cut down on that. He really needs to work on it around the kids.

Hi oneday, I have to admit that I do curse more often than I would like to out of bad habit. I was raised by people who thought that bad words were just that; bad words. I work in an industry that people smoke drink and curse regularly, so it is hard not to pick up a few bad habits at work, but is my home, I RARELY curse, as I do not think it sets a good example for my children.

That's good. Your parents must have brought you up the right way. I hope you stay that way forever.
