Swearing is such a great form of self expression; if it's not being used to put someone down then what's the big fucking deal. Why would someone get so offended from the sound or sight of a word. Don't be such a little girl and get over yourself. Honestly If I say "fuck it" it's probably because I'm pissed off or getting irritated at something. Saying that will turn heads in a public setting most likely... HOWEVER if I were to say something along the lines of "screw it" no one would care. Both phrases hold the same meaning! Why does one spark emotion. People need to understand that words only hold the meaning we give them. Meanings change over time. My black cousin understands this concept. I can jokingly call him my "*****" and he understands I'm using it in a different way than how the word originated.. Modern day use of that specific word has pretty much flipped, it's almost an endearing term now. This is why I will be open with my kids and tell them they can use swear words if they feel it's necessary. They will respect said words and most likely wont be one of the little punks running around swearing up a storm thinking he's a badass. Kids do it to rebel. Same rules apply to sex education. Don't preach abstinence, it's not realistic and is a waste of breath. You've been a teen-ager at some point. HORMONES. Teachers need to take the time to talk about sex in school and how to participate responsibly and safely. I just wish this philosophy of realistic teaching was more wide-spread.
