Sentence Enhancers...

Welcome to another fun filled fucking (that was alliteration by the way....lol) Monday, here on Zalgo Cometh. Today's random blog of the week will be about a topic I hold near and dear to my fucking heart. Yup you guessed it motherfucking profanity......Profanity goes by many names:  curse wordscursing, inappropriate language, cuss word, dirty language, bad words, foul language, blasphemy and obscenity just to name a few. However most if not all of us are taught that these are 'bad words' and shouldn't be used in any situation; and we obey this without really ever questioning why these words are deemed bad. Hell I would settle for knowing who had the authority to more or less banish these words from everyday use.

Now I gotta say unless you are a gosh darn a-word or a just a uptight mf-word you had to at some point laugh watching that video. Can't really see how something that supposedly so bad can be a source of laughter; my twisted sense of humor aside and what not. The original meaning of the term profanity was restricted to blasphemysacrilege or saying God's name (or an identifier such as "Lord" or "God") in vain. Profanity represented secular indifference to religion or religious figures, while blasphemy was a more offensive attack on religion and religious figures, considered sinful, and a direct violation of The Ten Commandments. What people failed to realize over the years, is that they ended up generalizing the act of swearing to a broader definition that carried on over generations to what we have now; which is pretty unfair. Especially considering that curse words or sentence enhancers as I like to call them, are used for so much more than just blaspheming as you can see here...

It is because of this versatility and practicality I feel we should not see these words as bad words or such, but as effective sentence enhancers that help to further convey the true scale of the thought we are trying to convey. It is easy enough to see that sometimes, everyday vernacular just isn't sufficient in expressing the message we are trying to bring across. A perfect example of this is seen in the music industry, when you hear a song playing on the radio and its either heavily censored, or just doesn't sound right unless it is played in its original form without the bleeps or word subjugation. One study even found that swearing actually functions as a pain reliever, leading one psychologist to state: "I would advise people, if they hurt themselves, to swear". So I say break the cycle, educate yourself and others as to the true use behind sentence enhancers; as a famous man once said "knowledge is power; use it or lose it". I hope to see the day where people can watch this video and not be offended. Just to laugh at its comedic value knowing that was its only intended purpose...

the only reason there is a time and place for such things is cause we have been groomed to think they are inappropriate and what not by our parents and their parents before them and so on. thats exactly the point i was making that we need to desensitize ourself to such things cause they are just words like any other ones in the English language and have multiple uses than just what they have been ostracized for.

x_x when you said 'random' i guess you sure meant it. dwl.

Well, we were groomed that way because the words were created for 'inappropriate' situations.

but tht begs the question isn't appropriateness relative and who deems these exact words as inappropriate....?

I have question appropriateness but does it sound like a nice word? To me, I don't see it as a word to be shunned to an extend cause adults use it to convey an emotion they are feeling. I think it could be consider as a any other sound conveying an expression, example "AAARRGGGHHH!!" I think 'fuck' falls in the same category its just that it is a word that is clearly understood in getting across a msg, either bad or good. however, I do not like saying or listen to a convo with alot of cursing cause to me, it is not pleasant in any way. Also it is aggressive and vulgar way of expression in my opinion. I say as well, time and place for everything. it is more a matter of respect than questioning if it's wrong or who says?

but then if the real meaning behind such words wasnt misconstrued thru out history then they wudnt be a question of inappropriateness since they wud just be another word. who knows what other words may end up as profanity....
