Some people complain about Trump being vulgar, but what about those here on hp?
Many people make personal attacks on comments they don't agree with, and they call people names, and use words that they wouldn't use in public. Then there are complaints about how Trump talks.
Is there a double standard here?
Absolutely. And there should be. He is interviewing for one of the most important jobs on the planet. He is asking to be a representative of hundreds of millions of people. I expect him to not only be better but to be just about the best. As it is, I wouldn't even consider accepting him as a personal acquaintance and I really can't figure out how or why people accept such an exceedingly low bar.
Actually, thinking about it as a job interview is a good way to look at it. Imagine a hiring manager during an interview have a candidate describe a woman as a fat pig or call another interviewee a *ussy? That person wouldn't get a job anywhere. So why have such a lower standard for a far more important job? It makes no sense.
As for vulgarity in the commons, I wish there was a bit less of that as well.
So you like the passive aggressive people to run the country?
Actions speak louder than words for the presidency. And those managers that you mentioned won't hire that woman, or any other person they don't like, but they will be polite.
Did I just read that right -- "vulgarity in the commons"? I am insulted. Without use of vulgarity someone just slammed my class of people. I would rather an honest vulgar term. Well that just sold it - I will vote for a "commons" man. I'll be damned!
There have been people in the past who rose to the nobility of the position. Now we have a guy who calls women fat pigs. If that is okay with people, so be it, but I don't get it and never will.
Eric, forgive me good sir, I meant no offense.
I don't particularly care if he's vulgar or not.
I care more that he's a raving lunatic...
Right. I think there is. But the difference is that Trump is talking to the United States and wants to represent the entire country. And we on here are just talking to a group of people. We are commoners and people of little importance in the scheme of things.
Don't worry. Soon there will be dumbass laws like in Canada and Australia where it will be against the law to say "hate speech" and hurt people's feelings! You will be written up or fined or something for saying what you want to say! I just hope they publicize a giant list so that we will know what we cannot say!

Is Vulgar Language really necessary for society to make their point, and set boundaries?Why is it necessary for people to communicate with crude and vulgar language!

Will President Donald Trump lower the bar for "once vulgar" offensive language?Consider him repeating a supporters reference to another candidate as a female body part. Will it be appropriate to make fun of and belittle people? Will he do a 180 after election?

Is swearing allowed on HubPages?I know that I was unable to post a comment that contained a four letter word, but I've never even had the urge to put one in an actual hub. However, I recently was thinking about doing a hub on how vulgarity has started to been seen as being less vulgar and...
