    I think that "jackass" was a quite restrained term to say in lieu of the many other alternative derogatory terms available.

    Of course. It's quite mild compared to other things said and it shows his humanity. No harm in that.

    I am not sure. I am an adult student just entering graduate school and ever since I entered under graduate school I had a rude awakening. Before I entered an undergrad program I was so much looking forward to meeting the students at that level. Once I got into the program and started to socialize with classmates I realized that I had set my standards too high. I was expecting superb English language and professional communication skills. Instead I was greeted with slang, and language that, in my opinion, is not appropriate at any setting in society.

    I do know that I would not like my children to learn and repeat inappropriate words. But then again, I must be dreaming....
