That word. The "F" word. The bad word. The word that incredulously assaults our ears. An egregious anomaly of speech reserved only for the lowest class of the English language. I submit to you that it is one of the most formidable and versatile words ever spoken. The idea that there are "good" words and "bad" words doesn't make sense to me. Words can be overused, or used in an incorrect way, but as we see in the video below this is impossible to do with this word.
Exhibit A (NSFW):
Not only is it a versatile word it displays the character of the one uttering it. It shows you are more likely to be an honest person. An honest person tells you what's on their mind and doesn't use a lot of verbal gymnastics to say the word without actually pronouncing it. It also decreases stress and anxiety. So...cursing helps fight heart disease. Sounds like there are benefits to using a few well placed fucks in your every day verbiage.
Cursing Can Be Positive
No one yet has explained, to my satisfaction, why some words are bad and some good. If you take the stance that rapid use of such words makes you less articulate or of lower intelligence, then I submit that doing so with any words reflects the same.
No. Words should be relished like a nice port with dark chocolate and brie. Slowly and with pleasure. I agree that over using any word becomes boring with repetition. However, sometimes, it is exactly the perfect word to convey how and what you are feeling at the time. '
In my writing there are words of curse that are used, sparingly. So should it be with speech. Thought out, well intentioned words, that portray concisely what you intend. They are not words to be avoided. Neither are they bad. They are tools to be used by any savvy linguist and should be used at their discretion.
