You misunderstand, by definition the majority of people must be offended in order for a word or phrase to be considered a swear word yes?
Fair enough, makes sense.
But please reference my previous posts to see where I stand on the matter. My point was though you will generaly find the amount of people that are
offended are always the minority, maybe not 60-70 years ago, but today?, pretty much. I was not re-interpreting the dictionary definition of what
constitutes a swear word. I thought the definition you chose to use was rather moot.
How many people out there have simply given up complaining?, I do not know that is impossible thing to answer and can not really be considered, pure
The problem you have is mate you are considering something obscene to be a negative thing.
I do not understand why, more than likely it is personal bias from some sort of moral hang up they have been trained to think. I dunno, I am pretty
liberal about language. And again you really have to understand "most people" does not really apply in society these days.
