Is cursing trashy in your book? adult content

im so annoyed.. my soap opera just came back on HULU (its not on network television anymore, just the computer) and some of the 'fans' got upset that there was cursing on the show so One Life To Live just announced that there won't be anymore cursing. for the record, the "filthiest" it got was shit and damn. and even funnier, these prudish fans dont have any apparent issue with the sex, violence, nudity and drugs on the show, JUST the cursing! im reading some of the comments and they say that cursing is "trashy" and "ignorant". well i fucking disagree! lol obviously if you're saying it every other word, that's ignorant. but a little fuck here or a shit there makes the show more realistic because lets face it, most people in everyday life swear moderately.

  • I think it depends on when it is being used. It's trashy to stand in line at the grocery store and yell to your kids "get your fuckin' asses over here". I mean I drop the F bomb at least twice a sentence when I'm venting about work to my husband but I have class in public.

  • I think cursing is overused. I am not totally against it, I just feel that we do not have to this is a good fucking cake, but can say that the cake is good etc.

  • In my mind, every word has its place.

  • On that note, "Do you know where the fuckin' thing I printed out went?" and other similar phrases are extremely common around our office, bosses, interns, etc. alike. But obviously when a client or board member is in we watch our mouths.

  • I think cursing sounds trashy when it's combined with poor English. "Yo asshole, you aint know shit." is trashy.

  • Are you kidding me?! You can't possibly show One Life to Live & not have Dorian call Vicky a bitch! It just isn't the same. Or All My Children, and have anyone call Ericka a bitch. (ooops are we still not allowed to say that here on CM?) :p What a crock of poo. See, not the same. It's a soap- it's supposed to have drama.
    As for real life, the only cuss word that really bothers me is the F word. And that's mostly b/c it gets overused. (not by me- just in general)

  • Yes I think it's trashy

  • Totally depends. If every other word you are saying is a curse word, then yes, it is definitely trashy. But I think a well timed curse word here and there actually ADDS to it.
