There are many foul, or bad languages in this world, categorized in what language you are using (Japanese, Korean, FIlipino, English, etc.)

Take the word "Leche" for example. Many Filipinos actually think that this is a foul word but it actually translates to "milk", which came from the Spanish Language.
The word B*ll Sh*t: I'm not so sure if it is true but someone told me that this/these word/s are actually from a name of a dog breed crossed together or whatever. It came from crossing a Shitzu (correct spelling?), and Pitt bull (correct spelling?).
Also, literally speaking, a bull is an animal and shit is like crap, feces or dung.

SO, how come words such as b*llsh*t, d*amn, f*cku, and others became foul?
What do they mean actually? o_0

hahaha, i know that, too. as u said, that's why crossing the original words may sound foul. i read in a magazine, we use foul words if we're emotional, bcoz foul words r like sumthing that arent suitable rite? like some people that enjoy doing bad things bcoz it's 'bad'.

Not all bad words are really bad... it's just how someone interpret it on another. :)

words are used to discribe actions , emotions etc. some foul words are just used as words that discribe things as pain or happieness. or actions as making love !

Uhm..these are only origins.. (or was I too lazy to read the whole thing)
Anyhow,...I'm looking for they're meaning and the reason why they're considered as bad. :(

bad words are only bad because people disapprove. Also people use them inappropriately can make people think more about their bad usage rather than their proper usage. Ex. gay = happy. How people came to think it means homo i don't know. Also Hell is not a bad word although plenty of children get in trouble for saying this in school. It's a city in Michigan.

Also f*g is a cigarrette but
f***ot is a bundle of sticks.
b**ch is a female dog. (why do so many call women this?)
a** is an animal related to a donkey.
d*mn is pretty much how its used but didn't use to be dirty. but its way to overused.

So heres my plan.
Everyone just says what they want and don't be a bunch of prudes.
People stop saying bad words to rebel. As a result bad words are no longer "cool"
Everything resolves itself naturally.

Seriously just because you don't curse on a regular basis, does it mean that if you stub your toe and let out an F-bomb, your a bad person?

anyways, it's considered foul because it's really rude to tell it to someone. it's like you're comparing a person to some animal crap or maybe he's worse than that and he stinks a lot more that those brown stuff. just like the b*t%h word- if you said that to a girl *especially to flirt ones*, you're like saying she's like a female dog; letting every male screw her.
m*#%e@f!$ck&r which is like p#t@ng in@ in our language, well,for me it's rude and very unpleasant because it insults not only the person himself but also his mom like saying "your mom is so0 stupid so i won't wonder why you're such a sucker" or maybe sayong that your mom is worse than you

Sometimes, the one who is good in taking care of other people is the same person who needs someone to take care of them.

words or words to me, I use them, so what of it, I use them a lot in my writings, mostly because it expresses oneself, or it makes the moment that more dominatant, I refuse to use some words because of the effects it could do to my soul, but for the most part I only cuss when the timing is right, like running into a wall or something, I forget and use the words, but in a heightened moment that, to me, is well worth to release some of the pain I currently felt at that moment

The only reason those words are "bad" are because people made them. Society decided that those words are somehow worse than others. If calling someone an ass is so horrible, then why shouldn't calling someone a pig? They're both rude things to say. It just depends on how the language changes over time and what society says.

in my opion, they are bad words. They're under the catagory of swears. Their meanings are bad. And they really arent the greatest to be saying. certain words like ass(a donkey), hell(a metaphorical place), bastard(illigitament person), and bitch(female dog) were all used in the sense of their meanings. People today however have used them in vain, causing these to become swears. HOWEVER... all of the other words that were made up, are bad. Even 'god' is used in vain nowadays. This world is filled with filthy language.

Yeah I pretty much agree with you guys. It depends on how the person says it, and how others interpret it.

Let's all be happy!

Absurd Insanity

Cancel

I find the idea of "Bad words" preposterous. First of all, a lot of men and women died for our right to say what we want, and the least people could do is exercise it. Secondly, people say they want to get rid of "Bad Words". Well, is calling someone an unpleasant, myopic, despite really any better than calling them a shithead? Profanity is a matter of superstition. The idea that there are certain sequences of sounds that, if uttered, will make everyone upset for reasons they themselves can't quite explain, is a pretty primitive notion. It is the context in which words are spoken that give them their power or meaning. And the very words in which we think are bad change over time. In the 1800's it was offensive to say arm, leg, or any part of the body. That was deemed to be profane. That's the reason why poultry is called light and dark meat. It was offensive to say leg or breast. That seems pretty silly by today's standards doesn't it?

What the first amendment says, or rather the lesson it teaches us, is that we should tolerate precisely those things that offend us. With liberty comes excess, if you want to play it safe, you aren't going to have liberty. The safer you are with guarding those values, those speech codes, the more you invite tyranny and suppression.

When you really think about this issue, the moral crusaders who want to stop profanity aren't asking that we control ourselves, that we hold our anger or change our behavior, treat each other with more respect, they aren't asking you to be nicer, they only want you to shout something they feel appropriate when you feel like shouting. They don't care about the meaning, only the word. They don't advocate peace or tell you not to speak with hate, they want only to change the word. As if it was the word that makes it obscene.

Well said!

It seems that few are able to understand that words are just symbols. It is the intended meaning that is of any importance. Unless somebody can argue that some intended meanings are somehow worse to communicate with these symbols than with others that they accept, it seems they can have no grounds to argue. Indeed, this idea of profanity is just silliness that society establishes as a norm that is then unthinkingly accepted by many (some do this subconciously rather than trying to meet the norm. When something is commonly held, it can be natural to default to it).

It is simply meaningless to detest a symbol. One may as well go about speaking of B being worse than A.

Not so sure how true that is, as it comes from the movie Dumb & Dumber.
