Yeah my parents wouldn't allow that language in the household, apparently it was the "Christian" thing to do. I love using the F word because it puts more emphasis in what I'm saying and I like to use it when I'm joking alot. How were these words even associated with bad, from a Christian perspective anyway? I just don't see how they are unclean.
The connection to things sexual or "dirty" parts of the body, usually used in sex as well.
I understand the blaspheming part, but hey you can eat pork, but we are still going to pretend to have a sanctified language. (Don't quote the whole all things are allowed but not all edify.)
I wonder if calling someone scum
will fall under these rules (I am truly wondering, not complaining) cause you can usually tell someone's age by their reaction to these words.
Used to be banned on TV, radio, and used within the MPAA rating system. As scum
was ejaculate and scumbag
was used condom.
Then you get the loan words from Yiddish than more than a few of us use, like schmuck
, which means foreskin
EDIT: Again, not complaining, just wondering aloud, as I am fascinated with language especially English, which I think is the greatest language that has ever existed.
Yes. I said it.
