I could drop a pot on my toe, and yell "F***!!!!!", and I would think that is unmanly. A man should have proper composure, and strive to not swear/be offensive (when he doesn't need to be...). The exact same "release" could be attained through yelling "SUBMARINE!!!!" or some other word.
I also find swearing to be for a lower class of men. (I do swear, but I am working on not using it)
Plus, would you say it in front of your mother, grandmother, wife, or girlfriend? Then it probably ought not to be said!
Sorry. Disagree. When I really hurt myself, "submarine" is the last thing that comes to mind. Granted... My pops will yell 'praise jesus' which is awesome since it counters all those who curse. I'm about 50-50 but getting better! Too me it just sounds crass in formal or professional arenas or around gals.
Hmmmm. Whether in pain or not, many men do it. And they do it quite often. I must confess to a bit of it myself, on occasion. It's like it seems to be appropriate in some situations--but not all... and with some men, but only some of the time. I mean, it seemed to fit in Clint Eastwood movie: "Gran Torino", but, I grow tired of it, in movies such as "Pulp Fiction" or "Good Will Hunting"...
uh, I seem to have painted myself into a corner with my attempt to answer, what at first seemed to be a simple question. I think I'm gonna pass this one on to my younger colleagues.
Ideally, one shouldn't curse. "Cussing" is a whole 'nother thing. "You dirty, wall-eyed, four-flushing, scroflurous, miserable, nit-witted son of a sea cook!" is Cussing. " You s**-of-a-b****!" or the "twelve-letter-word" is cursing.
So I was driving to movie night on Thursday and happened upon a car stalled on the side of the road. I stop at the stoplight and the occupants of said car ask me to drive them to get gas. I agree to help them (it didn't hurt that they were decently attractive females). So said female jumps in the car and immediately says, "Thank you so f*#$*% much! My f*#$*% friend ran out of gas and it's my f*#$*% birthday...."
I helped her out, but I have to say it was a rough car ride for me. She said f*#% every five words or so. It grated on my soul.
Conclusion: women cussing can turn an 8 into a 5 instantly. I have a feeling that men cussing can do the same thing, but I have no proof of such.
Absolutely. I HATE cussing from women. 10 drop to a 4. For guys, cussing is allowed when making a strong, emotion filled point..... Like against liberals on the news and cowardly terrorist and those who don't respect human life an hate traditional America and manly men. Should be limited to a$$ s/// and the rare f/// for big time life moments or guys you want to beat up. NEVEr in front of kids, women, the elderly. NEVER cursing with Gods name or his Son. Your messing with the Big Guy and insulting me and others. Overall though you should be manly enough to Eemian unflustered and make a point with other words. But it's just like defending your family or your self.... Sometimes you have no choice. I prefer to cuss in German. It's polite, sophisticated, and gets er done!
