Bad words is bad
Something I have always wondered and I would like other people's opinion on this. Who and/or when were "the bad" words, deemed "bad"? I'm obviously not gonna print them all out for several reasons, one is I'm new here and don't know where that line is so, I'm gonna let you use your imagination.

You can't say them because other people say they're bad, so... huh what?

Swearing is more than acceptable here. Just don't go out of your way to Offend someone.
Words only have the power we bestow upon them.

RE: Bad words is bad
That is cool because I like this place so far. However, it was an honest question. I'm really curious as to where this started. Who was it that first said that shit is an unacceptable word and should not be said out loud. ??

"Shit" is an unacceptable word?
One would think that something is only unacceptable, if one does not accept it.
But what the fuck do I know? Dodgy

RE: Bad words is bad
that's kinda what I'm getting at. Who the fuck does know? Why are they considered bad and other words aren't.

Swearing is based on society. "Bad words" are created through the evolution of language, and, as a word, they are wholly innocent; however, their connotations are created through this evolution. It is much like morality.

I guess that will have to do. Nice answer.

RE: Bad words is bad
It is very insulting to show someone the bottom of your shoe and point in Iraq. It is equivalent to giving someone the bird in America.

British people call cigarettes FAGS.

I guess if you want to be polite, you must observe the customs of the society you're in.
There is a time and place to be vulgar, I wouldn't want to offend old people or be inappropriate with children present, but that's common sense I thnk. If my beliefs offend you, sorry.
