I actually prefer a woman that doesn't swear. It shows anger and negative emotions and I don't deal well with that.

Well I tend to swear quite a bit, so I wouldn't mind her swearing; but not in front of children and in inappropriate places like church or a family party.

I said one swear when I was a little kid because I asked what it meant and my grandma said not to say it because it's a bad word. So I didn't use it and once I learned what the other swears were, I didn't use them at all when growing up either.

Now I can't swear not because I find the words to be bad but because I went so many years not doing it that it would seem very weird if I did. Even my mom who does swear pretty often said she would think something was wrong with me if decided to swear.

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.


When I received an Email notification telling me that someone quoted some post I created a month ago, I was surprised. Now I'm just disappointed.


Don't lie you liked it.

It's pretty unattractive. It's not pleasant to hear people curse a lot but it can be funny if you're hanging around with the guys. For women though, it's just not classy. Just another one of those gender bias scenarios I guess.

I personally find it sexy. I swear like a sailor so it would be incredibly annoying to have a partner that doesn't to some degree. It's a far better alternative to the "goody two shoes" who go out their way to not swear, imo.

Sprinkling some sentence enhancers doesn't bother me, I do it. Every other word is kinda too much, though.

Everyone swears now, its basic vocabulary.

I don't care. I think it's humorous. I am not going to say it's a turn on though.


I only begin to be annoyed when the majority of a persons speech is sexual. And for some reason that's what cool around my territory nowadays

I don't think it matters what men think about a woman swearing. She can do what she wants.

I don't like when women grunt so loud when playing tennis. That's like swearing to me.

I'm a maintainer in the military, so swearing is almost expected, even among females, so I don't care if some colorful language is used. That being said, there has to be a limit. If you swear more than a few times in a conversation, you had better have a reason for it.
