What is it with people and swearing?
My teacher has a piggy bank that 당신 have to pay if 당신 ever utter a word that is considered to be a swear. I really don't like it when people are so fanatical about keeping language "clean" like that.
Remember when no one said Voldemort's name and Hermione said that doing that only increased the power that the word had on people? I feel the same way. They are just words. The meanings of words change over time. Swears do not hurt anybody, even when used as insults. If a little kid starts swearing for fun, reprimanding him will only reinforce that behavior. Ignoring him like it's nothing to care about is what will make him stop such a pointless activity.
Words like fuck, shit, and cunt don't mean anything, yet why do people freak out about them?
