wha makes a bad word is when you use it in bad context like cursing someone its not what you say its how you say it im not sure who came up with it but and hell is not a bad word it is a place where bad people go dam is a beavers house and a double snake is not it was suppose to be a donkey but if you call someone an a* then its a bad word hope it helped
An example is the B word. It simply means a female dog. People abused the word by calling females that and they don't want their childrem calling people that so they don't teach them it. One word that confuses me is @$$ because it only means donket, I dont know how it came to mean butt.
