Ive always wondered about curse/cuss (I think the term 'cuss' is 'urban', no?) words. Their origins and the such. Like who took it upon themselves however many years ago to decide that these certain set of words were bad to say. And even moreso, how and why did everyone else think to themselves like "Yeah he's right! People shouldnt say these words." If that aint the dumbest shit.......
Remember in Eddie Murphy's 'Raw' when he was talkin about how Bill Cosby called him and told her he shouldnt cuss in his shows.......?
Eddie Murphy: [As Bill Cosby] "Yoouuu cannot say filth flarn filth flarn filth in front of people!"
Eddie Murphy: And I said "'I aint never said no filth flarn filth. I don't know what you're talking about. I'm offended that you called me with this. Fuck you!' And that's when Bill got raw on me!
Eddie Murphy: [As Bill Cosby] "That's what I'm talking about! Yoouuuuu cannot say......fuck!"
Eddie Murphy: Now I can't have no 'curse' show. I mean I gotta throw in a few jokes in between the curses. I can't come out and go "Hello! Filth flar'n filth, motherfucker, dick, pussy, snot, and shit. Good night!"
(Seriously Im not sure how that relates exactly to this blog, but it came to mind and it's funny as shit so I included it!)
Okay...back to what i was saying.....In George Carlin's famous bit called "The 7 Dirty Words" (http://www.erenkrantz.com/Humor/SevenDirtyWords.shtml) he said that usage of these words were apparently thought to "infect your soul, curve your spine and keep the country from winning the war. " Not literally....but mugs sure do act as if spewing these words will do so. Personally I think it's all a load of bullshit. Just another case of people following some shit that they have no idea of the orgins of. Just following b/c they were told to. Just following in the line they were told to get in and go along with. Never leaning to the side and peeking to try to get an idea of where the fuck they are going. Sorry dog.... "Imma leader. Yall on some following!" - Lil Kim. I question mostly everything. And I cuss my ass off. They are just words yall. Using those words dont make me a bad person.
You can cuss and say some nice shit like "You are FUCKING fantastic!" or you can insult someone and say some mean shit w/o a single cuss word like "You are a idiot!" Feel me?
So no.........cussing/cursing does not make a woman less lady like. To me they are only words. Besides it's the way things are said and the intent behind the words that determine their malice. Not the words dummy!
1. "Cause sometimes you just feel tired/You feel weak....and when you feel weak you feel like you wanna just give up/But you gotta search within you/You gotta find that inner strength/and just pull that shit out of you/to get that motivation to not give up...and not be a quitter/No matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse"- Eminem "Til I Collapse" 2.
