Why do people use vile and disgusting language more so why do "certain" types of women swear ? It seems to me that swearing is becoming more and more prevalent. It is habitual. I think people swear because they lack self control. Swearing as a part of regualar speech and swearing under emotional distress or anger are two different things. Regardless, swearing is base and vulgar and shows a lack of self control and self respect. I can say honestly that I do not believe I have ever sworn in my whole life. Thats is a wonderful accomplishment! Too bad more people can't say the same.
