Swearing? - Does it sound worse when a woman swears?

Hi

My questions is off course in the title.

The reason i ask is as follows.

I work in an office which has say 30+ people in it and on occassion i hear some individuals swear. These individuals in question are girls/woman.

Now for some reason with myself when i hear a woman swear it just sounds worse than when a man swears. I know this may come across as sexist or male chauvinistic but it is just the way i feel.

I personally think swearing is uncalled for in most circumstances but when i hear guys swear say in a pub etc it doesnt seem as bad and noticeable as when a woman swears.

Anyway just wondered what anyone else thought on the matter?

P.s. Not trying to offend anyone on this matter.

Either way swearing is inappropiate be you male or female. It's not right to say it sounds worse on a woman imo

I swear almost all day at work (not in front of customers of course), it's really hard not to when things are not working and you're on tight schedules - Is it true a kitten dies everytime I do?

Hearing women swear sounds wrong/worse to me. Though I honestly don't know many women that do swear, truth be told.

In most cases i agree but some situations on occassion you need to let rip.

I know its not politically correct but just the way i feel. My mother swears and it does my head in but i dont tell her not too. It's her choice.

In this " equality" world it shouldnt make any difference if the foul language comes from men or women however i do personally agree that when a woman swears especially really bad words, it sounds comman.I believe this is because women are seen as * ladies* personally i cannot stand the Ladette behaviour. Im not femanine in the least and at times i can have a mouth like a sewerage,but i do try to refrain from it because exactly as the poster said it DOES sound worse coming from a females mouth. My only realy strong feeling about swearing is people who swear infront of there children:x etc , i dont mean the occasional slip , i mean the constand swearing as if its part of the volcabulary.Lead by example,if you want to raise a polite,well mannered child then be one yourself:-D ...... anyway dont get me started on this subject lol

Thats one of my pet hates, If I hear any parent swear infront of their children they get a very sharp glare from me.

Once had someone say "And what do you think your looking at", My reply :

"A parent swearing infront of their child, Nice words for him to learn isn't it?"

Didn't go down well! :giggle:

Strong words are for weak people.

I hate the way that it is used in everyday conversation by some people. To me that shows a lack of conversational skills. It makes most people sound common and thick.

I hate kids swearing all the time thinking they sound grown up.

Yes I swear, very rarely, never in front of children and only when extremely annoyed.

I would never swear in my parents home either when I was young, I doubt they heard me swear until I'd left home.

heheh Im going to have to remember that one!:giggle:

I suppose you could call me traditional like that, I never really started swearing until I left school and went out to work, The people I worked with swore like troopers!

I do hate swearing though and rarely swear in normal conversation.

I thought they were either going to carry on swearing or attack me, They actually didn't say anything, Put some stuff in their bags and went, Dragging the little boy behind them!

They seemed pretty dumbfounded I even said anything!! :giggle:

Another one that gets me is parents hitting their kids in public, Now sometimes they probably do deserve it from running around like nutters and screaming their head off, But is smacking them really going to help?, They just scream and whine/cry around the rest of the shops!

Sad thing you just KNOW what the parents of the " foul mouthed child" is going to be like.... 5yr olds effing etc, they didnt learn that from Tweenies!
Children are mostly the result of there upbringing.So who do we blame.
Im pleased to say neither of my children have sworn infront of me.They KNOW not too. Mummy doesnt so they dont! End of;-) My 6yr old tells people off when were out and he overhears swearing.He says, you shouldnt say bad words! He really doesnt care saying it to people! LOLI find it funny and most people are:oops: being repremanded by a tiddler!

Same. When you hear a woman swear its quite amusing because they only do it in a serious context when they do..
#17
I do not swear in mixed company, I also don't like it when women swear. There are of course exceptions to this.

Oh thats agreed, If a woman dropped something on her foot for example and said "****", Thats ok.

But if she opened her purse and realised she needs to get cash out and swears all the names under the sun, It isn't!

I guess it comes from growing up with both of my parents being people who swear, but I wouldn't say a woman swearing is any worse than a man doing so.

Niether of my parents swore in front of us kids at all. In today's society for some reason it appears to be part of normal every day use (even though it shouldn't be)

In my opinion - its just a word (or several) to be fair that shouldn't be used - and if they are then its only fair that both parties can use it without one feeling it unaceeptable.
