NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

RE: The Australian vernacular.
The area I'm from in the U.S. (Boston), we swear A wicked LOT. Tongue It was a bit of a shocker to some people when I moved to CA and I did find myself trying to reel that in on occasion. I know when I first met my bf (who is from the Midwest), he was a bit shocked at my continuous use of fuck, balls, pissah/pisser, cock, son of a cock, etc., and any combination of any of those words with the word fuckin' or wicked or wicked fuckin' in front of it ...and so on. Wink Then he met my Irish Catholic family and they all swear like truck drivers too and it all made perfect sense to him Laugh out load Anyway, I think that's one of the many reasons why I love you, Banjo: Your bluntness and your swearing. It reminds me of home Tongue

RE: The Australian vernacular.
IRL I don't swear...darn 'don't say bad words' upbringing too strong...instead I use Shakespearean insults Tongue

I don't care if anyone swears at or around me though. And I do plenty online.

I find it hilarious when people get offended by words. That one Atheist Experience episode where a lady said "Excuuuuuuze me?!" when Matt swore had me in tears xD

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

The Australian vernacular.
(03-02-2017 04:18 AM)Banjo Wrote:  Hi all.

As I have recently discovered, many do not understand how Australians, for the most part, relate to each other.

To begin I will copy a text exchange between myself and one of my best friends. What follows is exact.

Mate: "Hey knobhead, are you interested in coming to see Periphery tonight? We have backstage passes."

Me: "No mate. I'm gonna have a night in. I'm playing tomorrow."

Mate: "Seriously? Just get off your fat lazy arse and come. It'll be great!"

Me: "Fuck that. I'm gonna sleep."

Mate: "Stupid cunt. Anyway I'll see you tomorrow."

Me: "Sure mate. Enjoy. Smile"

This person is a close friend. Very close.

Swearing is common practice. Words such as Fuckwit, Cunt, Dickhead and Fuckhead are commonly used amongst friends.

I don't know how it originated. Possibly due to the country being so very harsh. It produced a population that reflects that. Therefore a silly thing like a word is meaningless.

This affects other nationalities. In particular Americans. They are generally seen as repressed and uptight.

A mate told me of this meeting in a US town with a mate. The people surrounding them were shocked. To say the least!

Person 1: "What are you doing here you cunt?"

Person 2: "I'm on tour. What the fuck are you doing here?"

2: "Going to a trade show."

Later an American approached person 1 and asked what was happening. Apparently he expected a fight or a shooting.

"Mate, we always talk like that. He's a mate."

The American was shocked.

Of course the internet is heavily inhabited by "Yanks". It seems that to many here, especially myself, that they wish to enforce their code of ethics on the rest of the planet. To which I respond in my Aussie vernacular, "Fuck that!"

You should hear the language. Normal to Aussies, shocking to Americans.

Europeans are cooler. As are Asians. They tend to accept the way we are. many who migrate here willingly take up the same vernacular.

I recall a Chinese woman speaking to an Aussie tradesman.

"Fucking stupid Aussie!"

Response? "Fuck off bitch."

They then went about their business. No drama. No shootings or hysteria.

I have absolutely no intention of changing who I am to suit anyone. I hope other Aussies feels the same. And so too, our ANZAC cousins in New Zealand.

This rugged country produced a tough as nails race. Mostly unaffected by religiosity. One reason I think Americans are so repressed. Even so called "American atheists", who frankly should know better IMO.

I hope this helps.


The reason Americans are offended so easily is the spread of Social Justice Warriors.

I prefer the bold language and would fit in nicely where you are.

Shakespearean insults are just as good, though, and generally more creative (although I've heard some pretty creative profanity as well).
