Unless you are marketing to the PG crowd then you have no need.
So language doesn't matter unless it's to the PG crowd? Is that young people or just people that only watch PG movies?
Either way it sort of wrecks the point that you should say what you want and never self censor.
If you teach a child that every other word should be things I can't say, don't you feel that's bad parenting? If your child grows up calling his
or her teacher a c___ and gets kicked out of class daily, isn't that a problem? This is a battle you will never win. Yes, words are just words, but
they are also words. If your child miraculously made it through high school and I were an employer she would not even be considered for a position if
she used coarse language in an interview. She would be fired if she used that language towards another employee. She would be fired if she used bad
language in front of a customer.
No one says you have to shower or dress well. You're still not getting a job. I'll pretend to interview you, but I don't want customers seeing
some idiot with dreadlocks with stinky pits dropping crass language and defecating in the sink. Have fun being a free spirit. Just a tiny bit of
class, but that's too much.
I curse like a sailor but I'm not going to do it in front of a three year old or someone that tells me they find it offensive. I'm not going to
screw myself in a business meeting. I'm not going to completely disregard the feelings of others because I am stricken with unwarranted self
You are free to make as big an ass of yourself as you want (though I notice you don't swear on ATS). Have at it. Do what you will. Your message
just sinks lower and lower when you try to appeal to the lowest of the low.
I'm proud of you for reading a book, but I think you're taking the message a little too far.
