  • When did tits become a curse word? I thought it was a body part.

  • How sad that as grown adults on an adult site, some of us get offended by words. Now I understand if some one was calling some one else one of these words but if I read something along the lines of "Fuck my tits hurt like a mother fucker!" Not only would I NOT be offended but I would laugh because all of us at some point or another just need to cruse!

  • The profanity filter was designed with moms who have young children near them while they are enjoying CafeMom in mind. While some of these words are not traditionally labeled as curses, they are words that we assume most moms don't want their children to read.

    Jademom07: We might be adding some man-part curse words to this list. Since we don't allow men on the site, we sometimes forget males exists. We wouldn't filter a word like "penis" though, just like we would not filter "vagina."

  • Is it so hard to say to our children "Those words are only meant for adults to use." I remember knowing about cruse words but never using them because I wasn't an adult. And if I did use a cruse word my mouth was rinsed out with soap. And believe me, it was hard not to cruse while you are being raised by two sailors.

    Have we gotten so lazy in our parenting that we can't explain to a child that there are words they are not allowed to say, just like there are things they are not allowed to do?
