What's Wrong with Swearing?
Swearing Imposes a Personal Penalty
It gives a bad impression.
It makes you unpleasant to be with.
It endangers your relationships.
It’s a tool for whiners and complainers.
It reduces respect people have for you.
It shows you don’t have control.
It’s a sign of a bad attitude.
It discloses a lack of character.
It reflects ignorance.
It sets a bad example.
Swearing is Bad for Society
It contributes to the decline of civility
It represents the dumbing down of America.
It offends more people than you think.
It makes others uncomfortable.
It is disrespectful of others.
It turns discussions into arguments.
It can be a sign of hostility.
It can lead to violence.
Swearing Corrupts the English Language
It’s abrasive, lazy language.
It doesn’t communicate clearly.
It neglects more meaningful words.
It lacks imagination.
It has lost its effectiveness and if you swear, so have you.
