So this family is demonstrating that each swear word that pop culture makes would hurt us emotionally by getting shot with paint ball guns.
I personally think is okay to swear if you bumped your leg into a pole.
However, its not okay in day to day conversations. IMO.
So what do you guys think, should be use less swear word to benefits our kids(they would learn them eventually) and teach them better expressions instead of the F words, b words, etc... ???
Should we as society use less swear words? Watch

Imagine the bruises after that...
And pfft, if we use euphemisms instead in the exact context swear words, pretty soon they'll become the swear words. We did that in my primary school and then we ended up banned for saying the word "salami"

They're just words. If they found use them homophobicly, racistly, sexist etc. then it is fine. Unless they have diarrhoea of the mouth.

I try not to swear in day to day conversation as I work with children, so if I am used to swearing all the time with friends, I am more likely to accidentally do so in front of children.
I think that if people have something to say, then as far as possible they should refrain from swearing BECAUSE a lot of others, especially those in authority will stop listening to you and start reprimanding you if you use swear words- for example when talking to police or teachers.
Swear words are just words in my opinion, but there is usually a better way to describe what you mean. For example if you are called a C*nt, it could mean a variety of things. I'd think it's a nasty person, an evil person, a kitten killer, etc. This is considered a lot worse than being called a D*ck, but depending on how much the person swears both insults could be different levels of insulting, and it's never really clear.
I think it has definitely got worse in society, for example if I swear when talking to an older generation they are likely to be more shocked than when I am talking to my peers, and if children keep learning that it's more and more acceptable, it'll be used more and more.
