I love watching Tobuscus on youtube since he never does it too. However if we compare a guy and a girl swearing, i guess i'd think it'd be hot to hear for example my girlfriend swear like two times a week. :p (Saying 'guess' since i haven't tried it.)
Anyway in my environment, work and school, girls and boys swear all the time but i haven't been swayed by it, i'm still classy and never swear (which of course makes me the weirdo). Also i'm growing tired of people swearing all the time. (Yes, they do it for no reason and use it as their vocabulary, ignoring words like "very" replacing with swear words.) :s

Actually i'm so used to it. The attitude between men and girls is pretty much the same, the girls act manly. So i wouldn't know if i particularly dislike women doing it. I'd have to hear some Jpn voice actors swear alot in an anime. Cute voices and swear words. ...(Thank gosh that hasn't actually happened... "Baka" works fine lol!))

Keep in mind that there's basically no swearing in Japanese - 'baka' is the standard, generic pejorative. To 'swear', you just phrase things more disrespectfully

Although I guess things like 'kuso' could have some stronger connotations.

they are just words... perception of the meaning is more important

I've seen some scenes from the ongoing anime SNAFU which had words peeped out. Also Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu had an episode with rugby training where he seemed to say so many bad words that they were beeped out all the time. I dunno if there's swearing or not in Japanese, but words that needs beeping are what i'm referring to. xD
Nvm it all though, i don't want to hear swear words in anime or anything. Anime is a haven where such rudeness is spared. I'll just go make some girl biker gang in Japan mad at me in real life and listen to them. With protective gear aswell.

Anyway i didn't know that you swear by saying things more disrespectfully. It's really cool how Japanese is more about tone than words. Love that. :3

Personally not fond of it, not much conversation is gonna be going on between me and some one with a potty mouth

It depends on how often the words are dropped and the context the words are used in. However, if the words are used consecutively, it'll be a lie if I said it wouldn't bother me.

So if you had a girlfriend/female friend, and about every other word or the majority of her speech she was saying swear words, is that attractive?


That would depend on what you want her to do with her dirty mouth. I can think of a few things that aren't swearing.


Oh right, I'm not a man.


That's not really germane to what a women can do with her mouth. I'm sure she do things with a women that are not swearing as well.

I dont care either way as long as they are not the kind of people that swear in all situations. I consider propriety and situational awareness very important. For example, no swearing at the symphony, elegant restaurant, or a place with a lot of children. Otherwise, i really dont care if they swear or not.

That's a mixed bag for me. If she has some measure of intelligence behind her swearing, then it wouldn't really bother me that much.


this, but i don't think my opinion would change if the roles were reversed. Intelligence is way more important. that said it would bug me if she didn't know when to STFU and let the people around us have an inoffensive outing.

Not a fan personally.
Especially if children are nearby and decide to copy them.

Seeing mothers laugh at their 2+ year olds swearing at strangers makes me die inside!

Other than that, sometimes is fine if in context of the situation.

I don't personally assign swear words much meaning. The terms themselves aren't inherently "filthy" or "undesirable", it's the stubborn nature of sociality that renders them taboo. With this in mind, I do think that usage of swear words indicates a sort of weakness within the individual itself.

If you resort to the (largely useless) terminology of rage, then you may be mentally overwhelmed with the problem at hand and are succumbing to the savage instincts nature imposed on you. Impulse tends to wrestle with Intellect, and when cussing, you are granting the former a small victory. Hence, plentiful cussing may be indicative of an intellectual void - something I definitely do not find attractive.

This philosophy also renders me conveniently immune to most verbal insults. When you call me names, you aren't harming me in any way. You're simply confirming your personal surrender to the forces that have shaped you into a mentally weak being. No mean word you throw at me weighs on my shoulders - it's just another shovel's worth of dirt that you're heaving onto the grave of the person you could've been. Hateful rants aren't an attack on its recipient - they're a eulogy composed by the weak, for the weak.

'Course, that's only reasonably applicable to a fraction of all swear word usage. There are plenty of people that cuss simply because they want to cuss, and not because they can't stop themselves from giving in to blind rage. Thus, rationally, I ought to disregard the frequency of rants and hateful language in these matters to some extent. Yet there's always this silly issue of personal attraction, so, uh, let's just say that swear words are a big turn off for me.


Whoa there Charles Dickens.
