Swearing has become a new addition to Facebook videos and even some shows on streaming TV. Why?  I really don’t think calling people foul names and using the “F” word is necessary. In Europe it is commonly used and hasn’t been the taboo that it has in the states. Either way I really don’t care for it.  For example, there was a video of a little boy around three who was using the “F” word while looking at a bird. The mother posted it thinking it was funny.  If you want your children to have class, laughing and allowing them to believe swearing is cute is not the way. I have always felt that swearing was another form for a lack of a good vocabulary.  As it is, people use poor grammar on a consistent daily basis.  One of the reasons I hate siri is that when I speak correct vocabulary such as going to she switches it to gonna just to name one example.  She also switches words and uses swears when what I have said doesn’t even come close to those words. I find it annoying and frustrating.  It always was in the past that only men would use foul language.  Times have changed. On several of the videos women used profanity and in the course of the skit it was not even noticed.  The point of writing is to give good ideas and use good grammar.  Even when you watch basic TV shows people still say gonna, yeah,  and use bad grammar.  I find it surprising as they have high salaries for their performances on all types of shows including game shows. When we were young we were constantly corrected.  I once sassed my grandmother and she slapped me right across the face.  It was the last time I ever did that. She was my guiding light for vocabulary as she and my grandfather did not swear.  What do you think about swearing? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
