Social Dilemma - Is It Okay to Curse In Front of Your Friends?

posted by Jaime Roberts -

Today's social dilemma is a little bit different.  It has to do with cussing, swearing, cursing, whatever you might call it when you use a word that you might say in anger, stressful times or frustration.  So here's the dilemma part.  I have a friend.  We've probably been friends for about six years now.  We don't hang out all the time, but probably around once every two months or so.  She has decided that she doesn't want to curse anymore.  I respect that.  But she has a list of words that she believes no one should say when they're with her.  Words that begin with f, s, and b are some of them.  Fart is another one.  I never thought of fart as a curse word, but okay, if she doesn't want to use it, that's cool.   But do you think that all of her friends should be forced to stop saying those words when they're with her.  I mean, does cursing make someone a bad person?  I would be lying to you if I told you I never cursed.  I don't do it often, but I do it.   And since I have nephews, the word fart comes up at least five times a day.  I am not offended in the least if someone curses around me.  I just ask that they don't cuss around the kids when I have them, and most people have no problem with that.   I feel like the condition she's putting on our friendship is too much.  Not because I need to curse, but because it will keep me checking myself constantly when I'm with her, and that's not a fun relaxing time with friends.  So what would you do in this situation?  Do you think it's fair for a friend to impose her rules on others?  Do you refuse to hang out with people who swear?   Help me out with this one, please!  Let me know what you think on the 98-3 TRY Facebook page.
