Oh yeah, I get what you're saying. Some people do cringe in shock and horror when they hear certain words. And if the words come from a kid, people somtimes think it reflects poorly on the child, or the parent(s). But I guess the point I was trying to make is, why should that be? Society has artificially placed stigmas on certain vibrations. What if the vibrations that make up the s-word in the English language actually represented a shoe? Granted, they don't. But again, I'm just sayin, it seems silly to have placed these artificial stigmas on certain words, so that when they're heard coming from someone, especially someone under a certain age, or in the presence of someone under a certain age, some people think it's just horrible. All I'm sayin is, it's just vibrations. I wish there was a way to get society in general to lighten up. There's not of course, but I wish there was.
So I do realize of course that one reason why parents want to limit their childrens' exposure to certain words is that they feel there's then less risk that the kid will repeat those words in the presence of other adults, who then may in some way look down on the kid, or the parent. But if we didn't have these silly stigmas against certain vibrations, it wouldn't be an issue.
Another thing that I realize... my views are often in the minority. lol
