    uhm, icon_eek.gif ..sorry, I don't swear in person (it's not in my nature). I only swear if you p*ss me off icon_biggrin.gif.

    My no swearing streak: 1week (it stopped when i tripped and got my toe pricked by a sharp object).

    How long can you not swear?? or even say anything inappropriately funny??. If so, Elaborate with finesse-like opinions. icon_razz.gificon_eek.gif

    I never swear in public. Not ever. And I rarely swear at all, and then only for comic effect with my partner, or among the very closest of our friends.

    I consider swearing a weakness, when all other forms of acceptable expression have failed me. If I need a swear word to express myself then I have diminished myself.

    Even during 25 years in the US Army I never swore, though all those around me did. I was raised as a gentleman, and my parents rarely swore (oddly, it was only my mother who might let slip, once in a "blue moon," but not a single time in my life did I hear my late father use a curse word. Not ever).

    I know how to express myself, and my emotions, properly. I don't need to rely upon vulgarities, that might offend some people, especially those inadvertently overhearing my conversation. I greatly dislike this coarsening of speech in the US.

    Swearing and cursing are the sole domains for those too lazy to express themselves in normal language. All languages are rich in words, structures, idioms, and double meanings that allow for use in any occasion.

    Those who consistently resort to the use of a four-letter word as a noun, verb, adjective, and adverb are totally unattractive in my book.

    Agree, but I earn no points for my own attitude, simply how I was raised, and how my parents behaved. I should confess, however, that sometimes I use a vulgarity online, or a clipped one, for comic effect on a gay site like this, where I assume the offense will be minor, if not laughed at.

    Still, something I probably shouldn't do, and not to my credit. My late parents continue to look over my shoulder (whom I later learned always knew I was gay, before I myself did, and yet accepted me at a time in the US when that was very rare), and I really do still think in terms of them, and what they would want me to do. I was their creation, after all, and though my own person, remain respectful of their wishes & wisdom. They did not swear, and I do not swear.

    I agree. Vulgarity is not a substitute for vocabulary. If you can't express yourself clearly & properly in public, you are a loser. Either you have the skill & refinement, or you don't. Throwing out a 4-letter word (in English) does not make you clever, it makes you a clod.

    When my buddies and I play racquetball, we have a rule that if anyone cusses in court, EVERYONE in the court has to drop and do push-ups. Not always fun when you're already tired and some dummy forgets and says s#*!.

    So, I suggest you do the same. If you cuss, drop and do 5 (or 10). And, if your friends are in on this game, then EVERYONE has to drop and do 5 (or 10).

    I totally understand people choosing not to cuss, but calling someone a loser and saying they're a clod because of the words they use is unnecessarily judgmental. I passively swear all the time because it was common usage in my house. I normally check myself when in public, but I've been known to inadvertently drop the f-bomb at work and I think it would be hard for me stop completely.

    I fail to see how insulting someone is any more effective and refined at getting your point across than cussing.

    I don't swear in public and not often.. unless I have an unexpected bad event happen and I usually yell "sh*&" out loud. Then it can get a little foul...LOL.

    You are either a gentleman, or you are not. Do you understand the concept? I think you misunderstand. At most he IMPLIES the insult. Unless seriously provoked, a gentleman never directly insults. That is déclassé.

    I understand that you have values and consider not swearing a virtue. Which I respect. I was just wondering why you felt the need to insult people who don't share the same values. I thought your first response was effective because you explained it in terms about how you feel. You don't do it because you believe in a certain way of living and cussing makes you feel like you're not living up to your expectations.

    I'm just questioning if you really need to call people clods and losers. It seems like the same thing. You don't swear, because it offends yourself and other people. I don't call people names, because it offends me and other people.

    A fair point. To many of us, such behavior is cloddish. What can I say? How do you maintain & defend standards, if nothing is off limits? Say whatever you like, be offensive as you like, violated all standards of civil behavior? An interesting dilemma.

    I prefer to live in a world of civility and manners, with a degree of respect for others, even with whom I disagree. You may choose not. I have no reply to that, except to say that is my choice.
