The Top Ten
They really ARE just words, even though they have inappropriate and sometimes offensive meanings behind them, but that doesn't make anyone simply a bad person or a crazy person for just saying them. - Mcgillacuddy
This particular item really gets on my nerves. If they're "just words", then why are people protesting just to use them? For every swear word, there's a non-offensive word you can use instead. Are there any people in middle/high school who actually get that? - Garythesnail

When used properly, swearing can be used for emphasis in a conversation to help get your point across. If I were to tell my father, who does not like swearing, to "Stop talking!
