Why do people swear?

Why do people swear?

I think its just admitting your too stupid to think of a creative way to express your feelings. I will never swear in my life!

It releases a lot of tension. I swear like a sailor, but I wish I didn't. I'm an intelligent person, thank you very much, but I'm also emotional. Swearing is just my natural response to frustration which, at school, is constant.

I swear when I feel that normal words will not express the emotion I am feeling at that moment as well as swear words would.

Actually, I hear that you feel happier after you let your frustration by swearing.
I'm just going to say, I swear a a lot because I'm Irish. 0u0

People need a way to express anger and a mature way to do it.

Yeah. Apparently saying Bullpoopy is not a very mature way of handling a situation. I learned that the hard way.

^.^U Me neither...I hate swearing...But, I think there are a few reasons why...-

1. Basically, they're just too dumb to figure out a way to insult a person.
2. I think they curse just to appear as "cool". I used to do that(WHEN I WAS LITTLE; I WAS NAIVE BACK THEN) to appear cool to my friends but all I got was trouble.
3. Maybe because they're just super angry. My mom curses while driving. :/
