Alternatives for cursing Feb. 2nd, 2013 @ 11:23 PM Reply

I think it is a lost practice of mankind. The teenage generation of today(which yes, I am a part of) is so quick to drop F bombs all over the place and swear up and down at the slightest misfortune. Or even swearing for good reasons, like using "fuck" as a celebratory term. I mean nowadays the word "shit" can practically be used to replace any noun. "I got that shit and fuckin took it over to the place where I keep all my other shit" <----you have no clue what items the person is referring to. We need to start finding creative alternatives for cursing again, the kind which can only be found in the elderly living today. What happened to the times when people dropped and broke a glass and proclaimed "Oh darn my luck!"? Idk I just think there is a whole portion of exclamatory words that could do to be re-applied to modern vocabulary.

Anyways, what are some of your favorite alternatives for curse words?
Personally, i like "Fiddlesticks"

I personally don't get why saying fuck in public is a bad thing. It's just a word, it's not even offensive to any race or religion.

I agree, I think there doesnt have to be restrictions on words, its just that those words are SO overused. I think mankind could do to mix it up with more words. Like i said in the paragraph, I hear people use "shit" for 4 different items in one sentence

I swear, but I can't help it because it's a habit. I usually don't use alternatives.

Who cares? cursing's become mainstream... even TV shows say words that were banned 5~10 years ago now, like bitch and ass... sure people over do it, however now a days there's really no alternative.

Of all the words for feces, why is "shit" the only one that is considered offensive?

Is it just because the word has more to do with the excretion process than the actual substance?

I'd say it's more to do with etiquette, rather than it being offensive.

cursing is a rape of language

you are DEGRADING the quality of language and making it fuzzy and less precise, like those stupid asian languages

Replacing "shit" with "trash" was always pretty catchy to me.

And I'm a sucker for Lobo's "fraggin'"...though I've yet to deploy it into a scenario and make it NOT sound ridiculous.

Hells Bells and Buckets of Blood.
That line is very powerful to say and helps get a lot out of your system while at the same time not being "cursing"
