Swear words is often tolerated in certain languages, i think it depends on the context and intention someone uses a swear word whether or not its positive or negatively charged... i tend to swear real bad if i burn my hand for example, lol
It is like a impulse reaction for some; but yes words are POWER, words are energy, and words CREATE... so choose words wisely or better still dont speak at all ;) ;) ♥
I think all forms of language should be tolerated with a response of unconditional love.The era of us fearing words is over! It reminds me of a old episode from Star Trek.In which a alien pretending to be the dead president Lincoln said,"A charming Negress,"than he appoligised and said,"forgive me my dear of the foolishness of my century."Than the communications officer said in reply,Why should I be offended?"You see my century we've learned not to fear words.Than Captain Kirk added to the response,"We've learned to be happy with what or who we are and besides the Vulcans learned that centuries before we humans did."
haha i miss the London underground ♥;) aha! ♥
I ask you this.
How will you 'not tolerate' it? Do you intend to have some kind of language police? Maybe 24/7 satellite surveillance and an instant ticket system if you use the naughty swear words! Sorry, but the trouble is that you seem to want to control other people. Honestly... words only have the power that you give them, but that aside, what sort of statist control would you enact in order to enforce this intolerance of "swear words"? Should people who "curse" be hauled off to the police station and spanked? How do you even go about controlling what words people use, especially when there is supposed to be an ammendment for freedom of speech and expression... I just don't understand, why you think it's worth it to sell out to controlling statist behavior, over something like harsh language.
I seem to remember in a movie, Demolition Man I think with Sylvester Stallone that had little kiosks on the walls that issued warning and tickets when people used certain swear words. Sorry that came to mind when I read your post.
As for topic, Different languages and cultures have different meanings to the same words or phrases. My mother would roll over in her grave if she heard some of my language occasionally. I do try to mind my manners and not use that kind of language but I have my slips. I do not think that having a language police is an answer though.
