I disagree. I'm perfectly happy the way I am, and pleased that people respect that in my journal.


That strikes me as totally bizarre and wrong, and I say this as a woman who does use obscenity and profanity in her writing -- but you don't, and, well, you're not supposed to, because it's not consistent with who you are and how you express yourself.

I value your writing, in part, because of your choices of what you say and how; it's important to me to know that someone like you exists, and communicates so well. (And that sounds awkward, but I want to get it out there.)

I'd decided in college that one point of expletives was the shock value. (There are other points, of course, but this was my logic.) I was never comfortable with strong language - my parents rarely used it and until relatively recently, you couldn't find it in SF and fantasy, and I kept to myself a lot. So deciding not to use it unless I needed the shock was easy for me. And now it's habit.

I found the results ridiculous as well, for a different reason. I can curse like a drunken sailor, if drunken sailors were well-read and creative and cursed multi-lingually. Most of the choices were boring to me, and the "Gosh drat it all" (or whatevers) seemed more interesting than the basic four-letter words.

But I was told that I used "the same old curses everyone else uses." I was tempted to write the flapeared whoreson who created this abomination a nasty letter, but I decided not to waste my bloomin' time.

I totally agree with you. The putz who wrote that meshugenah test used the most unimaginative cussin' I've ever heard. I got the same result you did. Merde!!!!

I think the person who wrote this quiz simply wanted an excuse to use all the curse words (all four, apparently) that he/she knew. You could hear the giggles.

Telling, isn't it?

How irritating. I used to use profanity a lot more than I do now, and I'm not aware of being less clear in my self-expression than I was then.

Yeah. You know. Swearing means being cool and grown-up.

Except, no. It doesn't. It doesn't mean the opposite either, unless you're doing it just to giggle.
