Scott, S. As a 40 something female who has been known to swear with the best of them, I have been trying to cut the profanity out of my everyday language lately, on the request of my boyfriend. I think it all adds to the general trend towards disrespect of others.
Nor do any of my friends say it.
And I want to point out that I am in not a feminist. As a native Spanish speaker with a very creative vocabulary, I feel strange not being able to use that same vocabulary in English — so, I try to be myself as much as I can and swear as much as I want to… The English language, however, does not offer as many possibilities as other languages but I try to inject my creativity-vulgarity as much as I can.
Great stuff, just great!
