Top Ten Reasons Why Swearing is Okay

Nateawesomeness

The Top Ten

1 They're just words

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

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

I know right. Why do people get so worked up about some letters. If you say "duck" no one cares. But if you say the f word, everyone freaks out. - SammySpore

They're words with meanings

2 Swearing doesn't affect your intelligence

As long as swearing isn't used to be offensive I am totally fine with it. - Cartoons_Lover34

It may not affect your intelligence, but it may be indicative of it.

But your mental intelligence is dead - MChkflaguard_Yt

I swear all the time,and I'm in the 99 percentile - Nateawesomeness

3 Many people swear

I don't mind it, but if it's 90% of your vocabulary it just makes you sound unintelligent. - Garythesnail

So you should follow them and swear? Someone murdered innocent people so you are going to kill people as well? Stupid! - MChkflaguard_Yt

Many users do also - Nateawesomeness

4 They help you win an argument

Research has shown that mild, occasional swearing at the end of an argument can help bolster your case. But by no means should your argument sound like a Wiz Khalifa song or something. - keycha1n

If they are just words, then they aren't any more impactful in an argument that any other words. Also, has there ever been an argument that was won by swearing? More likely, either the argument ended because the more mature person walked away (not a victory), or it ended up being a profanity shouting match.

You can win arguments without swearing. - AnonymousChick

Well there are alternatives like instead of saying the bs word(I say bs word because I'm only 12) you could just say bullcrap(Also crap isn't a swear word really) but I can see the point you're making.-DarkBoi-X

7 People who are afraid of swearing are childish

Who "fears" it? You can express yourself without using ridiculous words! - Britgirl

Our savior is right:He can express himself he wants as long if he is in control of it - Nateawesomeness

We don't fear it, we despise it. - MChkflaguard_Yt

I'm not saying swearing is for real men,but people who fear it are childish - Nateawesomeness

8 It's not against the law to swear

THIS LIST IS THE DUMBEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE, WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE THINK IT IS OKAY TO SWEAR? SWEARING IS WORSE THAN KILLING A PERSON, HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT THE MOST UNINTELLIGENT PEOPLE LIKE, DONNY, THE SIN SQUAD AND CHILDREN SWEAR? IT IS ACTUALLY ILLEGAL BUT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD SWEARS (EXCEPT ME) SO THE POLICE THOUGHT IT WASN'T WORTH IT TO ARREST EVERYONE IN THE WORLD - A 13-YEAR-OLD BOY WHO HATES SWEARING

Sorry for the comment only written in Caps Lock, I only meant it as a joke but I can not get it removed because I wrote it anonymously.

It is a good comment, why remove it, just make a second version without caps lock - MChkflaguard_Yt

It's also not against the law to fart in a crowded elevator. Still a jerk move.

Duh lol

9 Swear word protesters can't stop swearers

Equal rights advocates can't stop racists from being racist. Doesn't make racism okay.

But it's still bad. And overrated. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Visitor,racism is REALLY,a terrible thing,swearing,isn't - Nateawesomeness

10 It's better to swear than to hurt a person

Of course. Swearing doesn't make people cry or cut people, does it? But swearing too much can be annoying. You can swear as long as you use an appropriate amount. - AlphaQ

True, but maybe people could learn to control their anger? - Garythesnail

Swear words offends people. You can cure a cut with band aid, but you can't cure a mental cut that easily. - MChkflaguard_Yt

And keep in mind I mean physical pain - Nateawesomeness
