    Bleeping is perfectly acceptable I realize that a lot of people who swear in their every day conversations are educated and may be very upstanding citizens but if I am overhearing someone who continually cusses it does not matter if that person is a judge, doctor or prisoner, my perception is going to be the same.

    I like swearing, and I do it a lot. BUT, I also try really hard not to do so in public situations, particularly when kids are present. I often catch myself at times saying something "crass" and then feel bad about it.

    Oh and I, too, have a college degree

    Perfection in a post right here ^^^ I totally agree with everything you said. And yes, I also have a college degree.

    Re: Swearing in Public - your thoughts?

    For starters, words only have as much power as we allow them to have. I've never really understood the whole curse word thing. Who suddenly decided that some words are good and others are bad? They're all just words. I think the meaning, and intention behind the words is much more important than the actual words used. So when someone will "cutely" substitute a silly word in place of a swear, I have to ask, if your intention is the same, then what difference does it make if you choose to say "fluffernutter" instead of "$^@$%#$%!%!#$$%#!"

    That being said, even though I don't find these so called curse words offensive, I do take into account the sensitivities of other people. There are appropriate times and places for almost all things, and recognizing when and where those are does make a big statement with regard to a person's percieved character.

    exactly. I feel the same way. I rarely curse and when I do it's not in public. Sometimes my BF will say a curse word around me and I let him know I do not appreciate it. He'll say he's sorry.

    I;m not sure what's up with the "i swear and I have a college degree" response. It doesn't matter it comes across as low class and uneducated no matter what degree you have. I have a degree and my Bf has a masters When he cusses it still sounds low class....

    I prefer to save my cursing for church...

    Just kidding. I don't mind it, as long as kids are not around. If it is in a place with kids, it is entirely inappropriate.

    Re: Swearing in Public - your thoughts?

    I do not curse a lot but for some reason I curse in front of my friends...

    for some odd reason when we are together grammar goes out of the window.

    I also curse when I'm really upset.

    I think my Bf curses around his friends also. Which is why i tell him "I'm your girlfriend, not your buddy stop cussing around me." ...and he will stop.

    I will admit I have quite the potty mouth if I'm running late for work and I get behind slow or bad drivers. However, they can not hear me and I would never flip anyone off...so it's just me venting in the car....(I have gotten behind a driver who sat through a green light...yeah...that makes me mad when i have to be at work. Once I left 20 minutes early and I was still almost late because people drive stupid. My work is 8 minutes way....)...yeah, that drives me to curse.

    Re: Swearing in Public - your thoughts?

    I don't see myself as that much of a swearer, I use crap and hell mostly and Shyt more often than F---, but i usually only swear when something has gone wrong or I hurt myself, and I try not to do it in public, because I know some parents don't want their kids to hear that. If I had a 3 yr old, I wouldn't want them hearing the f-word. Also excessive swearing to me make that person dumb, you have such a small vocabulary that you have to insert 5 swear words into one sentence, not appealing

    I don't like it around kids and certainly not at DL!

    I just need to watch it at work because they try to be all "Corporate" and sh**...

    Blame George Carlin....

    I just heard way too many parents cussing at their kids (at the happiest place on earth) - telling them to get off their a#@ and shut the h#%$ up, etc. I just found it inexcuseable. Most of the rest were teenagers trying to look cool, and just sounding stupid.

    Still, I think people should have some common courtesy and respect for others and just watch their language.

    In fact, there's barely a place where you can find it just completely unacceptable. Some places are just a little more hidden from the common eye. From the churches to the zoo, it's out there...

    But, there's a time and place for everything. Just know where that time and place is.
    OMG, speaking of swearing at church...

    One time I was at church and this guy gave a talk and he used every scripture from the Bible with the word @$$ in it. It was unbelievably shocking, but funny too because it was so out of place. This guy had guts. My sisters and I did a double-take when we heard the first one go. Nobody in the congregation laughed, while we were trying our hardest not to. I guess we are the heathens... I will never forget that moment.

    Why should I blame Carlin. The concept of "bad words" existed before him, he just happened to use it in his act.

    As for the next part, I would concider that an entirely different topic beyond just "swearing in public."
