Should students be able to curse in schools?

well, should they? I mean what is so bad about cursing? It's just a movement of the tongue to make sound. And I should be allowed to talk to my friends the way I want

No you shouldn't curse in school because it's offensive to many of the people around you. For a school to allow it would be doing you a disservice, because when you leave school and enter the real world and the workforce, offensive language is generally not tolerated. You're there to learn, not socialize, and this rule exists to teach you manners.

Cursing is unpleasant and rude to those around you. There is a reason they are called bad words. Because they have offensive meanings and are designed to be offensive.

We live in a socialist society where some make the rules for everyone and the some consider it offensive so its not allowed.

Just cuz someone else does it, doesn't make it right. If you prefer not to swear don't do it, set a good example for others. I for one am offended at someone who swears, especially when they take the Lord's name in vain.

Aside from the lords name, why does cursing offend you?

Yes, any language should be acceptable at any time in any situation, unless your attacking or insulting someone. I've never understood the obsession with "curse" words. Why is it a bad word? Who decides what's bad, and what criteria did they use to decide it? What if I said the word jesus offends me, does that mean no one can say it anymore?

That's like saying, "why can't I take a crap on the floor in public? Why should it offend anyone? It's natural!" ...Because it's rude and uncomfortable for others around you! That's why.

How is that the same, in any way? Who has to clean up the word f&@k off the floor when I say it when I drop a hammer on my toe?
Report as
Why didn't you read the rest of my statement? I said "because it's rude and uncomfortable for others around you". Why do you continue to ask "why?" when it's clear why. If you're in your own home, you should talk how you like. But school is an inappropriate place for language that is offensive to others.
Report as
So if its offensive to anyone we shouldn't do it or say it in public? We're not gonna get much done acting like children like that.

No. But, this issue is not an opinion in whether or not it's allowed, but what you were raised to think and what religion(if any) you believe in. Some people might think it's fine to curse, while others might think it's wrong, becauses that person or people were taught it was ok at a young age. It all depends on what you were raised on, and what was wrong and right as a child.

cursing only shows your ignorance in the use of English language and when you get into the job market it will hurt your chances of getting a job if you curse

people who can't articulate use cursing to compensate

Here's my take on it. When someone curses, it looks like they're taking the lazy way out. It's easier to toss a curse word in there, rather than use their brain to use an acceptable word. Then, in my opinion, they look a little dumber. And a little more low-class. Let's face it- most people WILL let go with a swear word once in a while. But to use & depend on them for your normal conversation can & does make others uncomfortable. Even if they're smiling at you. The way you come across to people IS important, whether you admit it or not. They are of course going to form an opinion of you. If you don't care, fine. But if you do care, try to stop. If you treat yourself with respect, then you don't have to use controversial words- you can get your point across just fine without them.

Absolutely not. If you make cursing a normal part of your vocabulary you will have a hard time changing it when you are an adult in the workforce and that could bring a lot of trouble for you, including not being able to hold on to a job. Some people might consider it harassment to have a co-worker who is always cursing. Pretend the future you came to the past and told the present you to stop cursing so he can be a better human in the future!

Ask yourself if you think the cursing is going to stop if they say we can't curse in school. If they say we can, it'll just be the same.
