In a Facebook group someone said, "In writing about politics, or anything else, it is not necessary to use curse words. I can understand the frustration, however it makes you sound uneducated. If you can't think of a substitute word I suggest using a thesaurus."
Words are words and people can select from the huge number of choices available.
"Damn" is stronger than "darn" or "fooey."
Words have different meanings across time and borders. "Son of a bitch" was intended to be a pleasant euphemism for "dog," which was once a vile insult in England.
The notion of "curses" and "curse words" is quaint, or even archaic. If someone says "go to hell" in reaction to an annoying speech or tweet, there is no assumption that the phrase will send someone to meet Satan.
Similarly, saying "God bless you" or "gesundheit" when someone sneezes expresses care but doesn't change anything.
We have dirty words and clean words and children should be taught which words are appropriate when and where. Many people, including foul-mouthed Donald Trump, are not taught properly. Of course, some words that kids were taught were dirty in 1955 are quite acceptable in 2016.
I am particularly annoyed at people who use juvenile typographical euphemisms like "F**K." Those silly asterisks hide nothing.
I never type that way, but I make one concession in a group where an administrator is particularly prissy. I'll type "eff" or "effing" instead of "fuck" or "fucking."<<
