    People Who F*cking Curse More Make the Best F*cking Friends

    People Who F*cking Curse More Actually Make The Best F*cking Friends
    by Lauren Martin

    It f*cking feels f*cking good to swear. I donít f*cking know where or when we f*cking started, but it f*cking happened. Weíve gentrified the F word, and we canít f*cking stop.
    Swearing is one of those things we canít really figure out. We all do it, yet so many condemn it. We know itís bad, yet we canít help ourselves. We f*cking love it, but have no idea why.
    Where did we learn it? When did we start? Why does it feel so damn good?
    Timothy Jay and Kristin Janschewitz sought to answer these questions in their report ďThe Science of Swearing.Ē

    In the report, they argued swearingís negative stigmas stem from our courtís association with speech cases of discrimination and sexual harassment.

    Their work, however, suggests swearing does not promote or produce negative consequences.

    Their results come from studying 10,000 cases of public swearing. From those cases, there were no incidents of public swearing that led to direct violence or harm.

    Another case against swearing is it corrupts children. Sociologists suggest there is no scientific or sociological proof a single word can cause harm.

    They also found most public uses of swear words are not out of anger, but to produce positive effects, mainly humor.

    Research does prove, however, swearing can lower physical pain. It has a cathartic effect that enables us to react and live through pain better.

    Itís also used for stress management, storytelling, social cues and, most importantly, a replacement for physical violence.

    Because does ďf*ckĒ really cause more damage than a punch to the face? Does hearing your child curse hurt more than watching him hurt himself?

    According to Jay and Janschewitz, while the everyday English speaker swears in 0.5 percent of his daily words, swearing occurs most in Type A personalities. Those classified as extroverted are known to swear the most.

    Interestingly enough, women dominate in the most recent frequency count of public swearing. This does not mean women have become cruder; thereís just more of us. More of us watching TV, engaging in social activities and refusing to give a damn.

    So after all this, what can you really say about your friend who swears all the time or your kid who canít keep ďf*ckĒ out of a sentence? You can say theyíre good f*cking people.
