When you were still a child, adults always told you that you should not be friends with those who curse and swear a lot. So do you have friends who swear a lot? F**k yeah, you have. While society does not tend to look favorably upon people who curse, there are a number of reasons why your foul mouthed pals make for the best possible friends.
Tons of people have the opinion that people who swear frequently only do it because they don’t have the vocabulary to express themselves intelligently, but psychologists Kristin Joy of Marist College and Timothy Jay of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts disagree with this.
Psychologists say that people who regularly swear are more likely to be smarter than those who don’t swear. Moreover, they are more honest and more fluent in mundane words. Cursing is a form of true expression and should be treated as such. Sometimes, social decency needs to be cast off to the side.
All in all, swearing is not a bad thing! Next time, when someone accuses you of being inappropriate when slipping some F-words – you tell them that you are not inappropriate but honest and smart! You have the science to back you up.
