Am I the only one sick of these "Shit X Says" videos?
Anyways, what do you think about swearing? On Ultimate Guitar for instance, you can't say certain words like ****, ****, and **** as they get starred (see?). However, should they be? I don't blame Ultimate Guitar but society instead. Let me explain.

Swear words, for the most part, were not always swear words. Bitch is an obvious one that meant female dog before it meant an evil woman. Most swear words meant something else before they were considered to be swear words.

Now, you can do this with any word. How offensive is cow? Yeah, if you call a woman a fat cow, it's pretty damn offensive, yet that doesn't get censored...yet.

My point is this: Should "swear words" be considered bad if they are not used for bad reasons? Is it okay if I say "Well fuckin' done, ol' chap", or because I swore am I still to be considered offensive? Shouldn't it be about how words are delivered and not the literal words themselves that determines how offensive they are?

I felt the third option was obligatory. Also, I'm not tired of the videos yet, but I will be soon.

OT: I hardly find any word offensive, so I couldn't really speak for everyone. But I agree, deliverance of a word is what makes it impact, not the word itself.

This is from a long time ago. I love it.

With proper context and moderation, most 'bad words' aren't that bad. But certain words just don't need to be used.

Swearing isn't offensive to me unless used in a derogatory manner, so basically like any other word.

I try not to swear because I believe it's wrong. (My beliefs ok? ) Anyway I hate it when people put like, 10 swear words into one sentence. I find it completely unnecessary and annoying.
