My name is Tunde and I curse. Like a sailor even.
Do I see this as a problem? Not hardly. In fact I only believe there is one real curse word. *shrug* I’m taking it you can guess what that curse what is. No. Well it’s “fuck”. See told you I like to curse. Where was I? Oh yeah, those other pseudo curse words don’t count in my book.
curse (v)- to use profanely insolent language against.
I mean it’s not like I curse uncontrollably. I don’t curse in professional environments. I don’t curse around my mother. I don’t think I’ve ever cursed in front of my mother. I try not to curse around my father. I guess cursing is a part of my vernacular just like any other slang word is to my regional dialect. For instance, being from the DC Metro area, I say the word “young” a lot. Sometimes subconsciously. When I first moved to Nashville I had a couple of people ask me what “young” meant. I just shrugged them off because honestly it’s one of those things that if you don’t know then you just don’t know. I’ve noticed when I’m talking to my mentor or any of my professors the word “young” would never leave my lips.
About a month or so ago one of my facebook friends had an update about the Lakers winning the championship. Being the ultimate Laker hater that I am, I responded with “Na Son”. After some back and forth I simply replied, “f*#@ kobe”. Now at the time I really didn’t see anything wrong with what I wrote. I mean I thought I censored myself well enough. It wasn’t until she replied “I would like to keep my wall G-rated. Thank you.”, did I realize that even though I censored myself that the intention was still there. I guess I could have wrote something like “forget kobe” or something similar but I don’t think it would have had the same effect.
Perhaps I should think about how my language affects others. Perhaps I shouldn’t.
Do you guys curse regularly? Do you get offended when people curse in your presence? C’mon tell me how the fuck you feel. lolol
