“Less is a bore.” – Robert Venturi
The Dreaded Curse Word
For as long as I can remember, teachers, parents, babysitters, employers – really anyone in an authoritative position – would encourage me to not use curse words. Their rational? Cussing is an indication of a limited vocabulary and an unimaginative means of communication.
To which I just have to say, “F*** that noise!”
Look, I get it. Swearing can make you come across as unrefined, undignified, unladylike, and overall, less intelligent. But as a writer who has been writing various content for various sites covering various issues, I find there to be great conviction and power in cuss words.
I certainly can’t speak for everyone, but when I interject a swear word in a conversation or via writing, I promise you If was thought out and meaningful. A carefully planned vulgarity effectively adds conviction and emphasis to your point and, no, there aren’t other ways to convey such passion and pointedness. Not the way a good ol’ fashion “shit” or “asshole” does.
And while most things I read with with skepticism and doubt, I must say I have to agree with this article regarding the value in being friends who cuss. As someone who equally appreciates the power of verbiage and the passion from which words are derived, I think everyone deserves the leniency of a good curse word here and there.

What can Kim not do?!?
