I figure a forum of writers would be a good place to ask this question. I have always wondered why there is such a big deal made about curse words. Like for example, if a radio personality got frustrated and said f*** on the air, he would get fined, and there would be a huge deal made about it. He would probably have to do some public apology or something. However if in the same situation, he would have said darn it, no one would have cared. Its the same context and same meaning, but yet one is ok and the other isn't. In my opinion there is no such thing as a bad word. Curse words are just a series of sounds that we put together to express an emotion or idea, the same as every other word in existance. Its primitive to think that one series of sounds is inherently bad, while another is ok, when they are expressing the same thing. So, what do you guys think about curse words. Also, I ask everyone to be civil so that this thread doesn't get locked. Thank you.
