Well stated! Profanity usually only succeeds in causing contentions. Certainly, an occasional "Oh shit!" when you stub your toe on the bedpost, is acceptable.
I too am not shocked by the profanity I hear every day, but I dislike hearing it.
Thanks for the question. The reason I am focusing on women (and maybe I shouldn't) is because society as a whole, seems to accept profanity more when it is used by a man. Many feel it is just part of being a man. However, I agree with Starmom41.
Just part of being a man? Luckily, I don't know any individuals who are this foolish in regard to human behavior. I'd probably hit them over the head for their stupidity in not observing others.

Thank you! I agree wholeheartedly!
...Profanity is never appropriate for anybody? There are never circumstances that would be fitting for its use? Really?
oh I think if someone is under personal attack, or accidentally whacks their hand with a hammer, if might be "acceptable."
