I have a few points -
Harmless? I think words are pretty powerful.
They convey emotions and can provoke, stimulate, and entice.
Graphic words can indicate a persons social upbringing. (This is a social view not necessarily my specific opinion.)
That it is low class to talk like that. Like a guttermouth.
I know if I am describing a person (I will think of a specific one) She drinks, smokes,
and swears every other word. You will visualize a really trashy girl. And I don't even have to describe how she dresses.(like a streetwalker) If it
walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, must be a duck.
I do swear. But mostly only when I'm trying to relay HOW mad I am.
or if I stub my toe. And it is wrong to swear in front of kids.
Cursing - If you think back in history when people believed in curses, it was thought that words held power. I forget the actual quote but speaking
someones name gave that person power. Like how we will never know the real name of God because saying his name was to powerful. I'll stop before I
stray off topic.
