I was raised in a home where shut up was a curse word, and its a word I never use no matter the context.
My fiancé regularly tells his kids 'you can have a nice warm glass of shut the hell up' which he learned from a movie. He never says it to be mean but he does say it often to his kids.
I don't like that he says that to his kids but they are his and I'd never tell him he couldn't say that to them but I don't want him saying that to our kids or my son.
He doesn't understand why I don't like the word and his reasoning is he isn't saying it to be mean its just a phrase and I said its akin to looking at a small child and saying ohh what an adorable fucker or that's a cute little bastard. While you don't mean any ill will its still wrong to say.
Does anyone else think like me?
Let me clarify a couple things. First he doesn't say that to my son and second he and I spoke about it and while he doesn't understand why I don't like the word he said he wouldn't say that to our future children.
