    Calling me a b* a c* or any other thing which I consider degrading is off-limits. I hate it when I hear women calling each other b* jokingly. I don’t think it’s funny and everybody who knows me knows better than to come at me like that. Not cool Undecided

    @Bostonsmom: My son’s first word was shit.

    Mine was the F word.  My mom was very angry with my father, and if anyone ever asks, she says my first word was “hi” (which was my second word).  I found out, though, because she slipped up and put the real one in my baby calendar, which I discovered in the attic when I was about 14.  >:D

    I’m currently in the midst of rehearsals for a production of Vagina Monologues, and one of the monologues is about reclaiming c**t and making it our own.  It’s a pretty fantastic monologue.  So at the moment, the thought of the C word fills me with warm fuzzies of female empowerment.

    so heres the question – those that swear often (someone said above 95% of the time) do you work in an office environment?

    i have 15yrs of a construction background and guys rarely swore in front of me and its the same thing in my current (finance/professional) office

    i know if a person swore regularly they would be pulled in and spoken to by management, its just not acceptable or a good look professionally

    I do, but I don’t swear when anyone who would care is listening.  My boss swears about as much as I do, and less carefully, so it’s fine.  *shrug*

    I just watched that episode and laughed like crazy at that line.

    I also said to Darling Husband, “I wonder how long before you use that phrase with me!”

    Not at all affected.  I thought it was hilarious.

    @eloping: I’m a stay at home mom. UGH that makes the swearing sound even worse. Although I try my hardest not to swear in front of my parents of my FI’s parents. And I don’t swear in conversation with my children.

    I’m one of the few who thinks it’s a “grey area,” I guess. It doesn’t offend me very much, although I guess I’m not sure because no one’s ever said it to my face. However, I know it does offend others, so I never say it myself and would probably roll my eyes at someone who said it in my presence.

    HOWEVER! One of my favourite jokes goes a little something like this:

    What’s a four-letter word for a woman that ends in U-N-T?

    No, I don’t really care. I let a lot of stuff like that slide.
