it gets frustration out, and is the perfect way to voice exasperation or anger in a sentence.

Because they are mad and are trying to express themselves through bad words

It enhances their point ( from what people I come upon on) or to relieve stress and tension.

It releases my anger, and helps to shoe how seriously mad you are sometimes. Honestly, when you're really mad, non-swear words just don't do the trick.

The first amendment gives us the freedom of speech. So therefore, we swear because "the man" says we can. And that is a damn good thing.

It's used to show annoyance or being seriousness or aggression.

Have you ever been so mad that words don't express how angry you are? Well that's what swear words are for. I know you'll just say they're still words, but they're not. They're special because people frown upon using them, so that makes them more attractive. Now don't get me wrong I love to swear, but because I've never cared what anyone else says to me, they're just words, and what's wrong with saying a word?

It can be used in all moods but its primarily used in anger or annoyance,unfortunately everyone naturally has sin in their heart so most people swear at least once in their life
