Top Ten Reasons Why Swearing is Okay

The Top Ten

1 They're just words

Certain words can hurt though, you know. - DrayTopTens

*Character swears on movie*
Kid: *GASP*
Me:...

Sometimes swears can help you elaborate what you’re trying to say better

Exactly they're just regular words

2 Swearing doesn't affect your intelligence

If you do it too much it might make you sound unintelligent but not in moderation. - DrayTopTens

The theory that swearing affects how intelligent you are is overrated. Knowing when to swear, and when not to swear can even show how intelligent you are.

I cuss a lot and I have high IQ of 420. - AlphaQ

My Physics teacher once told me " We swear when we don't have enough words left to describe how we feel ; thereby displaying the level of our actual knowledge and education "

I had mixed feelings about it, haha! - Ananya

3 It helps you let off steam

I don't see anything wrong with swearing..We all swear at some point of life.
We just need to observe and check how often we swear. - Ananya

If your mad swearing is the best way to let off the steam - Nateawesomeness

4 They help you win an argument

Good to use against sensitive people. - ThatIntrovertedEmo

Keeping calm and roasting others wins swearing hands down! - Aquastar_of_DewClan

It's easier to show and emphasise your point with swearing. - AlphaQ

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

5 It's not dangerous

"It's better to use a curse word than hurt someone"- Marilyn Manson

If it doesn't kill or injure, it doesn't matter. - 906389

It won't hurt you or anything - Nateawesomeness

6 People who are afraid of swearing are childish

Not many people are afraid of swear words. Maybe they think people who swear a lot are childish.

But it makes you use it as an excuse of not saying any clever comebacks

I'm not scared of it. I'm just scared of getting in trouble for it.

What if it’s your parents who make you fear swearing?

7 It has been proven to make you feel better after getting hurt

This is true - 445956

8 Swearing can be used for emphasis

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! " he would most likely ignore me (aside from the fact that is disrespectful). If I said "Stop talking", it would grab his attention.

9 Many people swear

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

You can swear in real life a lot if you want. Everyone in my class swears too. - AlphaQ

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

Am I a weirdo for being 13 and not swearing - DrayTopTens

10 It's not against the law to swear

Well it depends because if it was against police then it is illegal and then it’s not okay

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.

The Contenders

11 To make them know you are very angry
12 Swearing can make you sound more honest

But if you swear in anger...It will just overshadow your valid points. - Ananya

People who judge others for swearing are a major hypocrite themselves.

Tru because honesty is the best policy. - AlphaQ

It's true!

13 Swear word protesters can't stop swearers

Another stupid reason. Well, people who swear will go to hell. And that's the truth, whether you believe it or not. - Aquastar_of_DewClan

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

14 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

"Release your anger and your hate."-Palpatine. - Therandom

15 Swearing doesn't usually offend a person

You may not notice as they tend to hide their feelings, but it can. - MChkflaguard_Yt
