I believe that a bad word, once in a while, when beautifully placed, can be really good.
Let me explain myself: when you’re little “they” tell you that when they were little they had a mouthwash with soap if they dared to say “crap!” so you do not have to say bad words, at all.
Swearing is trivial, uneducated (not ladylike <– a plus for girls), it proves your speach is very limited, your ability to express yourself is retrograde and you show clear mind limits.
If, to some degree, we can agree (sorry, no pun intended, but it’s to say that there are way too many people who use swearing instead of comas and fullstops) for some other aspects I do not agree.
Let’s say you’re just done with a super long-boring-delicate work, just in time for your deadline… and you find out you did it completely wrong?
Swearing is a let-out for frustration, it sublimates the violent impulses and saves said work from complete and total destruction (or maybe saves your coworker from an impromptu rage).
Basically, let’s take Catullo, letting Odi et amo aside and all these fluffy poetries, ok… let’s not deny that Catullo is more known for his kinky poetries, the use of “bad words” in his lyrics and violent and vulgar speeches.
Here’s my thought: if our languages have these words in their vocabulary is clearly because there are situations, in life, that can only be solved with a “ohfuckoff!!!”
