not really if there's a control over it.

I am not sure that words can be bad or good.... I think, like others, that the intent is more important than the content....

However, if someone curses constantly I think it shows a lack of intelligence and a lack of imagination..... An intelligent person can usually find something more original than your run of the mill curse words as a means of expressing themselves....

I almost cannot bring myself to curse.... LOL it's just not in me..... I guess it's because of my strict upbringing.... I was raised to believe that cursing is a sign of ignorance and that all forms of rudeness are simply weak people’s feable imitations of strength.

^ Like what she said. It's usually just a reference on how you're feeling, but you can call it offending if you're actually cursing someone else on purpose. xD

Ask your parents to explain what bad is. They are not really bad words, just words. With potentially offensive meaning. But they are just speech, it is not like they will kill you. Unless you are that insecure/mentally unstable/other stuff. But opinions vary, so it really is not important whether they are bad or good. We have freedom of speech after all. Unless you lived somewhere where you are considered as a sheep and needs guidance.

whats up with the manga picture?

I don't really say bad words. at least not out loud, I keep them to myself.

But really, saying bad words here in sweden is totally normal. It makes the conversations alot more fun too.
