Teens have no repsect these days, especially on public transport. A select few of my mates will swear/spit/smoke on trains, with other people around. And I can't help be feel embarassed.

That is so the most awesome answer to this question ever. Nice one bruvva.frog_e said:any of you cunts want a drink? - shaun of the dead, such a classy film
I think perhaps it's time to discuss WHY a word has become offensive... i mean, consider the words an dtheir meanings:
"shit" - The description of a necessary but taboo bodily function that smells nasty and therefore apparently should not be discussed
"bastard" - A child born out of wedlock... wow, how offensive is THAT? but in the old days, being illigitimate was one of the worst things you could be...
"fuck" - meaning intercourse.... so it's offensive why? once again, a totally natural, normal human/animal function (though i cringe ot think of sex as a function) but it's offensive because sex is soooo bad and evil...
"dick" - a penis... i can undestand why being called a dick is offensive hehe, but seriously, it's rude because it's sexual
"cunt" - meaning vagina, or possibly vulva - for some reason it's always the "wort swear word" which i personally find a whole lot more offensive than the word its self, refering to someone as a part of the female anatomy should be no more offensive than calling someone an "arm" or a "leg" but for some reason people find it insulting...
I blame the Christians..... they have ingrained us with their anti-sex anti-fun beliefs for so long that we merely find things offensive and don't ask ourselves why....(yes i'm a recovering x-Catholic dealing with issues) So i think go ahead and swear, but not to the point where your grammar becomes incorrect eg: i fuckin went to the fuckin shop.... use things in context and they just become another word.... i think people have used "swear-words" to a point that we can no longer express anger, hurt, desise or any other strong emotion through more expressive language. Eg you could say "fuck you" or you could say "i unclog my nostrils in your general direction" (Monthy python) and i know which i would be more impressed and offended by.... the one that actually had some thought put into it.
